Weinthal confirmed that PayPal had shut the account of the pro-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) group, Jewish French Union for Peace (UJFP) on Monday. UJFP can no longer accept donations through the service.

“Due to customer confidentiality, we cannot comment on the details of any specific PayPal account. However, we would like to stress that PayPal has zero tolerance for the use of our secure payments platform to facilitate illegal activities.
