"Definitely, most definitely we oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine. No Palestinian, rational Palestinian, not a sell-out Palestinian, will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine."
OMAR BARGHOUTI –
CO-FOUNDER OF THE BDS MOVEMENT
Why the BDS
The boycott movement has many goals that are anti-Semitic by definition, an attempt to negate the Jewish people’s right to self-determination is one of them. Most of the people involved in the BDS campaign are motivated by opposition to Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state.
Demonization – When the Jewish state is being demonized; when Israel’s actions are blown out of all sensible proportion; when comparisons are made between Israelis and Nazis and between Palestinian refugee camps and Auschwitz – this is anti- Semitism, not legitimate criticism of Israel.
