Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom cuts conference support by NIS 200,000. But the anti-Jewish journalist Donal Bostrøm has been permitted to work inside Israel.
Dozens of right-wing activists on Sunday confronted a Swedish journalist who accused Israeli soldiers of harvesting organs from Palestinians, shouting at him upon his arrival in Israel at Ben Gurion airport.
The rightists waved banners bearing slogans against Donald Bostrøm, who will be a guest of the Dimona Media Conference on Monday, and called for him to be expelled from Israel.
In his article, which was published in August, Bostrøm attempted to tie Jewish criminals who trafficked in organs in New Jersey to Palestinian claims that Israel had removed organs from Palestinians killed by IDF soldiers.
Bostrøm will be interviewed at the conference on Monday by the anchor of Channel 2’s Friday night news show, Yair Lapid.
Although no specific threats were received, Bostrøm will be accompanied by a bodyguard throughout his stay, and the conference will make special security arrangements to prepare for potential protests.
Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom, who is also minister for the development of the Negev and Galilee, announced on Saturday that he would not come to the event and would drop his support for it because of Bostrom’s presence. The move will cost the conference NIS 200,000.

That the Swedish journalist Donald Bostrøm has been permitted to land and work in Israel is a great victory for the Jewish state.
It might surprise you, that a Messianic Zionist is giving such a statement.
The logic is simple. The state of Israel can not remain a free and democratic nations by enforcing censor and dictatorship. Leave this kind of reactions to Islamic nations.
If Donald Bostrøm had written something similar on Islam, he would not only been banned from entering any Muslim nation. His life would also have been at risk.
What happened to Bostrøm when he landed in Tel Aviv?
The state of Israel gave him a body guard to protect his life. That is grace.
Welcome to Israel, Donald Bostrøm. Enjoy a state and a people who respects human rights, press freedom and the right of Israelis also to be anti-Zionist and even anti-Israel.
The state of Israel is a miracle.
