CBC on Boycott of Israel

Finally CBC had an article about the BDS movement which they mostly choose to ignore. Of course, it is supposedly balanced giving full rein to the Israeli position:

Groups supporting Israeli boycotts subject to entry ban

U.S.-based Jewish Voice for Peace says decision 'disconcerting but not surprising'

But it fails to emphasize or even point out that the main purpose of this new law is not as it says - to prevent supporters of the boycott from coming to Israel - its main purpose is to prevent supporters of Palestinian rights from reaching Palestine. The only convenient way to access Palestine is through the Israeli airport at Tel Aviv. If supporters of Palestine cannot get into Israel first they cannot reach Palestine.

Very clever Israel, and very stupid or very complicit CBC for not pointing this out.
