Prohibited contacts with Israelis

Posted by worriedlebanese on 17/11/2006

I talked to an Israeli youth activist today, in private, in public and in front of a camera. I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. Why should anyone care if I talked to an Israeli or not? Why does it even interest the media? and why did the other participants refuse to do it or acknowledge it?

I’ve been brought up with the idea that it was prohibited, but is it really? Is there a law against it? Can anyone give me a reference to this law?

Even if this law existed, how come those who talked to a Knesset member who came to Beirut through Syria were not prosecuted? Is it because Azmi Bichara is not jewish? What kind of selective justice is that?
