Unmasking the BDS Movement

One of the major threats facing Israel today is the BDS movement. BDS stands for "Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions." The movement's goal is to fan the flames of an international movement to disenfranchise Israel. They state their goal as follows:

"We, representatives of Palestinian civil society, call upon international civil society organizations and people of conscience all over the world to impose broad boycotts and implement divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era."

We've talked with South Africans who lived through the apartheid era. They say South Africa then and Israel now bear no resemblance.

Malcolm Honelein, CEO of the Conference of Major American Jewish Organizations, told CBN News the campaign is simply a veiled attempt to delegitimize the existence of the State of Israel.

Here's what he had to say on the latest threat facing the Jewish state.
