An official travelling with Netanyahu said professor and human rights expert Rivka Feldhay was banned from a meeting of Israeli and German scientists because the prime minister did not want to allow the participation of an Israeli "who tarnishes the name of Israeli soldiers and pilots".
Feldhay signed a petition in 2008 that supported Israeli soldiers who refused to serve in Palestinian territories, the official said.
