Anti-Israel activists, usually acting under the banner of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, repeatedly try to hijack unrelated causes to turn them against Israel.

We have documented such actions many times, including with regard to Ferguson (Michael Brown) and Baltimore (Freddie Gray) riots, Eric Garner protests, the Standing Rock Sioux pipeline protest, domestic ...

One of the foundational myths of the anti-Israel movement, including the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, is that Muslim Arabs are the indigenous people of all of what now is Israel and Judea/Samaria (the “West Bank”).

From that foundational myth comes such vile absurdities as UNESCO — at the instigation of the...

There are signs that there is an uprising emerging against the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement in Europe. Not only have there been condemnations by various European leaders of the discrimination that underlies BDS, some banks have closed BDS accounts.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is the mother’s milk of modern antisemitism.

Wherever you find strong BDS activity, the line between anti-Zionism and antisemitism blurs to the point of disappearing. We’ve seen it time and again in street harassment of Jews in the name of anti-Zionism.

Now we see it, again,...

Omar Barghouti is the co-founder of the BDS movement. He lives in Israel because he married an Israeli woman and is a Ph.D. student at Tel Aviv University. [*] Yet he supports the academic boycott of Israel.

Contrary to Barghouti’s narrative, the BDS movement was founded at the anti-Semitic 2001 Durban Conference,...
