The lawsuit was based on the 'anti-boycott law' from 2011, which allows anyone who calls for a boycott of Israel to be sued for damages


In 2011 Israel made a law


The law states that individuals or organizations who publicize a call for an economic, cultural or academic boycott against a person or entity merely because of its affiliation to the State of Israel and/or to an Israeli institute and/or to a specific region under Israeli control, may be sued civilly, in tort, by a party claiming that it might be damaged by such a boycott.[2][3][4][5] The law also allows Israeli authorities to deny benefits from individuals or organizations - such as tax exemptions or participation in government contracts - if they have publicized a call to boycott and/or if they have obligated to participate in a boycott. All sections took effect on 13 July 2011, except for section 4 (withdrawing state benefits) which took effect on 11 October 2011.[2] The law was temporarily frozen by the Supreme Court between 2012 and 2015.[1] In the 2015 landmark decision Avneri v. The Knesset, the Supreme Court of Israel unanimously struck down section 2c of the law (which permitted the imposition of compensation payments even if no damages were proven), ruling that it was unconstitutional. The law's other provisions were upheld by the Court in majority decisions ranging from 9–0 to 5–4.[6][1][7][8]



JERUSALEM — An Israeli court has ordered two New Zealand women to pay over $12,000 in damages for allegedly helping persuade the pop singer Lorde to cancel a performance in Israel. The suit was filed under a law that allows civil lawsuits against anyone who calls for a boycott against Israel.


So the two New Zealanders, Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab, made an appeal to the boycott a concert in Tel Aviv in an open letter to Lorde, which she then ended up cancelling after a lot of pressure from her fans, and now these to women has been ordered to pay 12k dollars to 3 isralien teens, because they feel ashamed and hurt that someone would even mention the atrocities happening in palestina...

That is just crazy, but dare i say anymore? or would i just be sued?

I don't get it.

If they are in New Zealand, how will an Israeli court judgment make them pay? I don't see that happening.

Or are they in Israel?

Isreal shouldn't go down this road. Toughen up or you will turn into a progressive socialist group that thinks feelings are more important than other people's feelings. We have a group like that in the U.S. All they do is cry.

Israel cannot get the cash, but they can now prevent these two critics from going to Israel in the future, lest they be hounded for the fine owed.

Poor old Lorde. What a weak-willed celebrity.

That should be a badge of honor, not being allowed to visit Israel.

Lorde far from weak-willed. She will on the right side of history for being part of the boycott.

As others have said , ignore the judgement as Israel ignores judgments against it.
I doubt the women plan on visiting Israel so they have no problem.
