We’ve done Paris, Britain, Copenhagen and Malmö, where people walking the street dressed in attire indicating they are religious Jews face street harassment, mostly by Muslim young men.

We also did Montevideo, where the reaction was positive.

BDS protesters San Francisco gives finger to pro Israel protesters

The anti-Semitism deeply embedded in the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been apparent for years, but particularly since the 2014 Gaza War.

Rallies against Israel regularly devolved into Jew-baiting throughout Europe, and even in some places in the U.S.,

We have documented many times the role in the spread of anti-Semitic violence in Europe played by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The gross demonization and dehumanization of Israeli Jews by BDS contributes both directly and indirectly to acts of anti-Semitism. We have seen it on the streets...

This is becoming all too common.

An anti-Israel protest, often under the banner of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, turns outright anti-Semitic.

The gross demonization and dehumanization of Israel and Israeli Jews by the BDS movement is the mother’s milk of modern anti-Semitism.

We saw it throughout Europe in the summer of 2014,...
