A total of 16 nations around the world prohibit entry to Israeli
citizens. And as some commentators have pointed out, this group includes
six of the seven countries targeted by Trump’s action.

have gone viral on Facebook.

Secretary Boris Johnson was asked about the treatment of Israelis by
“I think it’s right that the [House of Commons] should be aware of

discriminatory, as between individuals and indeed as between nations.”
Watch the exchange with Johnson below."
