    Where are the mass protests in London, etc. in light of this ban on Jews? Where's the huge petition to stop the leaders of these 16 countries paying state visits to Britain?

    Israel is a terrorist state. They are absolutely fine with oppressing and bombing Palestinians so I don't see anything wrong with the 16 countries taking precautionary measures to prevent their own country from attacks.

    It's as credible as America banning immigration because of a "terrorist threat" when toddlers have killed more people than actual jihadists.

    There aren't any protests, because it doesn't suit their agenda. It's called selective outrage.

    Because we generally do not hold Saudi Arabia to the standard of the USA. Nobody thinks that these countries are paragons of liberalism or democracy, but the USA actively represents itself as such - so it can't complain when it is held to a higher standard than countries which eschew notions of liberalism or Western enlightenment values.

    Also the Saudi ban is aimed at Jews, you forgot that bit.

    Because not all, but many on the left, the vast majority of those outraged by this temporary travel ban, despise Jews. They dress it up as hating Israel, not Jews but they do. Just check out the rampant anti Semitism in the Labour party.

    1. If America wants to be the world leader and the leader of freedom, it cannot do such things.

    2. If no such ban on Israelis existed, and suddenly came into existence, you would see protests.

    3. Israel is a rogue, terrorist area that should have no right to exist, and only does because of feeling sorry for, and a **** up mostly led by Britain after the war.

    Israel is an illegitimate state. Stop building illegal settlements. Stop ethnic cleansing.stop racism towards Ethiopians and other black migrants.

    We generally don't hold largely tinpot middle eastern dictatorships to the same standards as a modern, democratic nation whose politics has global impact for rather obvious reasons; kind of the same reason why we're not shocked by civil war in Congo while if North Carolina invaded South Carolina, it'd be far more newsworthy and surprising.

    Israel is a legitimate state. Building settlements on the soil of Eretz Israel is the right thing to do. Jews from the whole diaspora including Ethiopia are welcome to here.

    Illegitimate*

    What about all the other illegal settlements? Israel threw a strop when the UN called them out on it. Are welcome? Have you seen what happens to them? Pure and simple discriminations against black people. So Israel is also a racist state along with the ethnic cleansing of Arabs/Palestinians

    No, it only exists because people felt sorry, didn't know what to do, didn't want the problem in their own land.
