Apartheid Canard,
BDS and Delegitimization

BACKGROUNDER: The Intrinsic Antisemitism 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.

Updated June 14: Scientific American Removes Article Promoting BDS

The venerable, American popular science magazine has become the latest venue for anti-Israel defamation. Why would editors cast aside the scientific tradition of fact-based inquiry in order to present pro-terrorist propaganda and the promotion of BDS in the guise of an analytic article?

The Washington Post Pushes a ‘One-State Solution’

While Hamas launches thousands of rockets at Israel, the Washington Post's opinion page decides to run a piece suggesting that the Jewish state shouldn't exist. In so doing, the Post glosses over the long history of persecution that Jews, pre-Israel, endured while subject to the whims of Middle Eastern rulers.

Haaretz Op-Ed Misleads to Defend SNL “Joke”

Satire is meant to be funny and even play on stereotypes. But there's a vast difference between that and invoking antisemitic tropes to accuse the Jewish state of murder. A recent op-ed in Ha'aretz defended SNL's Michael Che of the latter and, in doing so, smeared Israel further.

Forward Publishes Egregious Lie About Israeli Vaccinations

Writing in the Forward, Sari Bashi claims that Israel distributes COVID-19 vaccinates according to ethnicity, and argues that only Jews are eligible for the vaccine while non-Jews are denied the life-saving resource. It is a malevolent lie, and is one of the most dishonest accounts to appear in the mainstream press.

The Anti-Semitic Rhetoric of Anti-Zionists

Anti-Zionists claim theirs is a political position rooted in progressive values and and that charges of anti-Semitism are cynical attempts to stifle their speech. Real anti-Semites, they say, are just white supremacists and neo-Nazis. It is interesting therefore to compare the language and rhetoric used by prominent anti-Zionist organizations, politicians, journalists and activists to the classic antisemitic tropes disseminated by Nazis in the prelude to and during the Holocaust.
