Under the pretext of supporting boycott to the apartheid entity, "Israel" refused the entry to a group of European politicians.
The so-called "Israeli" Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said the officials "actively support" the boycott movement.
An Interior Ministry statement said the group planned to visit a Palestinian leader, Marwan Barghouti, who is serving life terms after an "Israeli" court convicted him of orchestrating deadly attacks during the second Palestinian intifada.
The international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement aims to ostracize "Israel" by pressuring corporations, artists and academic institutions to sever ties with the apartheid entity.
Supporters of the group say its activities are aimed at promoting Palestinian statehood.
