Apartheid Canard,
BDS and Delegitimization

      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 leaders and members seize upon the Covid-19 pandemic to fuel anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism with libels against Jews and the Jewish state. 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.

      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).

      NY Times Goes Down the BDS Rabbit Hole In Style

      Quiz time! Can you distinguish BDS from its parody? The stances of the factually and morally bankrupt BDS are virtually indistinguishable from satire. The New York Times gets lost in BDS' smoke and mirrors.

      Why the Harvard Crimson’s call for BDS is dead wrong

      The Harvard Crimson has published an Editorial titled "In Support of Boycott, Divest, Sanctions and a Free Palestine." Despite the editorial's portentous style, as a Harvard alumnus (GSAS 1987) I do feel it’s important to respond in an instructive way, since there seems to be much these Harvard students are unaware of. For example, that it's silly to call for BDS when Israel has agreed multiple times to a Palestinian state, only to have the Palestinians reject it. Maybe these Harvardians should start boycotting certain Palestinians and Palestinian supporters instead.

      Smithsonian Magazine Promotes Anti-Israel Tour Group

      Eyewitness Palestine promotes the falsehood that Israel is an apartheid state that engages in ethnic cleansing, introduces the participants on its trips to leaders of anti-Israel NGOs, and encourages those participants to engage in anti-Israel activism upon their return to the US.
