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.

Threaten Israel at you own expense. God's word is true. He will bless them that bless Israel and curse them that curse Israel.

# RE: Unmasking the BDS Movement

I am a South African and there is absolutely no comparison between the situation as it was in South Africa and how it is now in the Middle East. It's just another Islamic Radical lie to try to hurt Israel any way that they can.. A desire for peace in South Africa that led all South Africans to work together to try and build a better country and life for all is not what the Palestinians and Arabs want. They want to destroy all Israel and steal the land that rightfully belongs to Israel by the Highest Royal decree ever made. The promise by the one true God to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Any one tries to destroy or divide Israel by war or by sanctions based on yet another Islamic lie must beware. Israel is going to stay and nothing nothing nothing will change that. The BDS and anyone supporting them are acting in direct defiance of the Lord Almighty, heaven help them.
