Anya Parampil reports on the case of Lara Alqasem, an American student detained in Israel for over a week for her alleged support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement for Palestinian Rights. Some Israeli lawmakers have called for her release, saying Israel does not detain individuals for their political beliefs, however Anya explains that such imprisonments are actually codified by Israeli law. Anya also breaks down another reason Israel is in the news—for its open praise of US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley. Following news of her resignation, the Israeli Army and Prime Minister both took to Twitter to thank Haley for her service, highlighting her pro-Israel role at the UN. Former UK MP George Galloway joins In Question to discuss his take on the news.
