It’s a really catchy toon, I hear.
The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions crew sure knows how to fire up a crowd. Oh wait, they were the crowd.
An anti-Israel rally at a South African University that saw protesters chanting “Shoot the Jew,” which was subsequently defended by the head of the country’s BDS movement, drew widespread condemnation.
Both backers and critics of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement in South Africa criticized the group’s leader for supporting activists at the Witwatersrand University rally who sang a modified version of the 1980s anti-apartheid song “Shoot the Boer,” the Mail and Guardian reported Monday.
According to the anti-Israeli Electronic Intifada website, Palestinian solidarity activists in South Africa condemned the song:
Palestine solidarity activists in South Africa have condemned an incident in which several protestors sang a traditional struggle sung, but replaced the lyric “shoot the farmer” with words which translate into English as “shoot the Jew.”
“The board and staff of BDS South Africa condemn any and all incitement to violence and racism – including anti-Semitism and Zionism – even if it were to come from within our ranks,” the group said in a statement.
Sorry guys, you own it.
You spend all your waking hours demonizing Israel and your media incites hatred of Jews. You try to prevent people from speaking on campuses, from doing business with Israelis, you have created the monster.DONATE
