UN special rapporteur for Palestinians banned from Israel after appearing to justify Oct. 7 massacre

The UN special rapporteur for the Palestinians, Francesca Albanese, has been banned from entering Israel after appearing to justify Hamas's October 7 massacre. Albanese wrote a tweet stating that the victims were not killed because of their Judaism, but in response to Israel's oppression. The Interior Ministry had been refusing to issue a visa to Albanese for months, and the ban has now been made official with no time limit. The foreign and interior ministries are calling on the UN to publicly disavow Albanese's anti-Semitic words and fire her permanently.
