Kuwaiti parliamentarians seek ban on contacts with Israel

Kuwait City, 3 March - Five parliamentarians submitted a draft law that calls for a total ban on dealing with Israel and motivated it as a necessary response to Israel's continuing refusal to implement international resolutions and its "barbaric aggression" against the Palestinians in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip. The draft bill seeks to outlaw any form of dealing, establishing relations or contacts with what it defines the Zionist entity, including the opening of offices of any type or level aimed at direct or indirect contacts.

If the law gets approved, it would also prohibit government agencies, individuals and companies from holding meetings or signing any form of contract with Israelis and would furthermore ban Kuwaiti citizens and officials alike, from traveling to Israel. The move blows into the face of the United States who are for years pressing the governments of the Gulf Cooperation Council to end the boycott of Israel. To become a law, the bill must get approved by a majority in Parliament and still get approval from the government.
