An excerpt from the above linked-to article by Ali Abunimah follows:
Israel is threatening to expel an Australian journalist in Jerusalem, accusing him of being a supporter of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement…
Speaking to The Electronic Intifada, [Antony] Loewenstein, who has won recognition for his reporting from South Sudan and Afghanistan, dismissed any suggestion he had misrepresented himself.
“I am an accredited freelance journalist which is how I presented my work to the Israeli government in March, which they accepted,” Loewenstein said. “I’m not here associated with any organization. I’m here as a freelancer, officially, so there’s been no misrepresentation by me, ever.”…
The effective threat to expel Loewenstein comes a week after the Committee to Protect Journalists revealed that this year Israel remained among the world’s worst jailers of reporters – all of those in its cells are Palestinians.

When the real Israel includes a population that is mostly in support of it’s fascist, racist, barbaric ruling class, then to be called anti-Israel is not a bad thing. Call me anti-Israel. God is anti-Israel.
