BDS is a sinister hoax with genocidal objective

By David Singer - posted Tuesday, 23 June 2015


The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions campaign (BDS) instituted in 2005 by "Palestinian civil Society" against Israel and its civil society continues to attract people from all around the world – including Jews and Israeli Arabs - who support the campaign without realising its genocidal objective.

its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands

These are code words effectively calling for Israel's destruction since:

  1. According to the PLO Israel is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab home land, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation.

are actually supporting a racist campaign that calls for the total elimination of the Jewish State.

However the European Union (EU), mindful of the Jew-hatred endemic in the BDS campaign, yet anxious to appease its Arab trading partners and burgeoning Arab populations within its member countries, has targeted only the West Bank, presently working to enact measures requiring Israel to label products coming from Jewish settlements there following guidelines established on 18 July 2013.
