Apartheid Canard,
BDS and Delegitimization

UPDATED BACKGROUNDER: The Intrinsic Bigotry of BDS

The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS activists have created a local map in Massachusetts to target Jews for being Jews. CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.

Deconstructing “Israeli Apartheid”

Israel’s adversaries have always charged the country with misdeeds, but only relatively recently have these alleged evils coalesced into the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), modeled after the campaign against apartheid South Africa. As a detailed examination shows, the apartheid charges are utterly false. The activists who level these charges deserve no credibility.

Whitewashing Antisemitism at the NYT

For the second week in a row, the front page of the New York Times featured an article that either provided fuel for antisemitism or sanitized those who have been accused of it. The latest purports to expose the role of Russian disinformation in dividing the Women’s March protest movement, but downplays the antisemitism of the movement's leaders, particularly that of Linda Sarsour, and whitewashes the BDS movement she promotes.

Boston Mapping Project: An Anti-Semitic Campaign Goes Awry

The Boston Mapping Project, launched on June 3, 2022, is the latest variant of BDS poison and reflects the movement's anti-Jewish bigotry. The sinister and thus far anonymous map targets scores of Jewish organizations in New England and has sparked concern about its shocking premise and stated aims – to disrupt and dismantle the Boston Jewish community. It appears, however, to have backfired. The intense pushback by politicians, the FBI and the Massachusetts Department of Justice, has deepened rifts in the BDS movement over tactics -- whether to call openly for "resistance by all means" (that is, violence) or to maintain the pretense of being non-violent, human rights advocates.

The Washington Post and the ‘Khashoggi Way’ of Journalism

Media coverage of Israel is, with growing frequency, more comparable to activism than actual journalism. Indeed, as the Shireen Abu Akleh controversy highlights, journalists are failing to ask basic questions while simultaneously giving platforms and awards to activists masquerading as reporters.

Palestinian Bounties on Jews & the Irony of the “Apartheid” Slander

Contained in all the recent slanderous reports accusing Israel of “apartheid” are the claims that various Israeli laws discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion... Yet here we have the PA, which makes a distinction that is clearly not based on citizenship, as are those Israeli laws, but instead on an actual, unjustifiable form of discrimination (the murder of Jews, specifically).

Errors Exposed in Harvard Clinic’s Submission to the UN

UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI) and the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis  (CAMERA)  exposed numerous factual and legal errors in Harvard's International Human Rights Clinic's (IHRC) submission to the United Nations that slanderously accused Israel of being an apartheid state.
