If it wasn't anti-Semitic to do it to South Africa, it's not anti-Semitic to do it to Israel.
Jimmy Dore
BDS is perhaps the most ambitious, empowering, and promising Palestinian-led global movement for justice and rights. BDS has the capacity to challenge Israel's colonial rule and apartheid in a morally consistent, effective, and, crucially, intelligent manner.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
Some people are comfortable in hell, that`s why I crawled between your legs
Dirty Archangel (Lust is my favorite sin: Dirty Archangel)
Not only do the oppressed lose nothing when people of conscience boycott institutions that are persistently complicit in the system of oppression; in fact, they gain enormously from the ultimate weakening of this complicity that an effective and sustained boycott leads to.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
despite finishing first in my class at Yale Law School, I was rejected by all 32 of the law firms to which I applied.
Alan M. Dershowitz (The Case Against BDS: Why Singling Out Israel for Boycott Is Anti-Semitic and Anti-Peace)
Peace without justice is equivalent to institutionalizing injustice.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
In response to this fatal alliance of savage capitalism in the West with Israeli racism, exclusion and colonial subjugation, the global movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel presents not only a progressive, anti racist [3], sophisticated, sustainable, moral and effective form of civil non-violent resistance, but also a real chance of becoming the political catalyst and moral anchor for a strengthened, reinvigorated international social movement capable of reaffirming the rights of all humans to freedom, equality and dignity and the right of nations to self determination.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
From my personal experience as an analyst and dance choreographer working in the midst of "conflict", I do not think that, in a situation of oppression, intellectuals have a choice of whether or not to reflect the impact of conflict on them and on their society. Oppression, in a way, forces itself upon their work, their creative process. Their basic choice seems to be, then, whether to passively reflect it, or to actively transcend it. Oppression, it seems, has its own way of touching everyone within its reach, irrespective of one’s actual involvement in it or will to get involved in it.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
In contexts of colonial oppression, intellectuals, especially those who advocate and work for justice, cannot be just-or mere- intellectuals, in the abstract sense; they cannot but be immersed in some form or another of activism, to learn from fellow activists through real-life experiences, to widen the horizons of their sources of inspiration, and to organically engage in effective, collective emancipatory processes, without the self-indulgence, complacency, or ivory-towerness that might otherwise blur their moral vision. In short, to be just intellectuals, committed to justice as the most ethical and durable foundation of peace.
Omar Barghouti (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights)
How ironic it is that leftist BDS supporters have adopted the tactics of right-wing McCarthyites.

If the Israelis are confusing unarmed children with terrorists, I suppose it's just fine to confuse All Jews with Zionist terrorists.
Dmitry Dyatlov

Dmitry Dyatlov
These tactics are not new. They have been used against Israeli speakers in the past and are part of the broader effort known as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS. Founded in 2005 by Palestinian organizations, it advocates for the following: (1) boycotting Israeli-made products and services, as well as public events in which Israelis participate; (2) the divestment by governments and private institutions of investments in Israeli companies; and (3) the establishment of international sanctions against Israel. Its goal is to punish Israel for what it terms Israel’s “apartheid” policies toward Israeli and Palestinian Arabs.

The boycott in the academic world today against Israelis has its roots, in some measure, in the 2001 United Nations–sponsored Durban World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance. There were actually two gatherings in Durban—the official United Nations conference and one sponsored by a group of about three thousand nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The discussion about Israel at both meetings was vituperative and overshadowed all other issues on the meetings’ agendas. The final declaration adopted by the NGO forum laid the groundwork for the BDS movement by equating Zionism with racism and calling for a boycott of Israel.

In 2015 the American Jewish pop star Matisyahu was disinvited from appearing at Rototom Sunsplash, an annual international reggae music festival held in Spain that was, ironically, devoted to “the promotion of peace, equality, human rights and social justice.”12 He was told by festival organizers that the pressure to disinvite him came from BDS members, and that if he made a public statement in support of Palestinian statehood and against Israeli “war crimes,” he would be able to perform.13 When he refused to do so, his performance was canceled and Rototom Sunsplash issued the following statement: Rototom Sunsplash, after having repeatedly sought dialogue in the face of the artist’s unavailability to give a clear statement against war and on the right of the Palestinian people to their own state, has decided to cancel [his] concert. Even though Rototom Sunsplash’s other goals included examining the “rise in Islamophobia in Western countries, as well as the situation of the prisoners in Guantánamo,” no European performers were required to denounce expressions of Islamophobia in their countries, and American performers were not required to share their views on the United States policy toward prisoners in Guantánamo. After an international outcry at the festival’s assertion that an American Jewish musician was answerable for Israeli government policy, the invitation was reinstated.

A particularly cruel irony inherent in the targeting of Israeli academics, artists, and intellectuals is that a disproportionate number of them publicly oppose many of Israel’s settlement policies. Instead of encouraging their efforts, BDS lumps them in with the very people and policies that they oppose. All this does is bar Israeli advocates for change from participating in the larger conversation with like-minded Palestinian individuals, and instead empower extremists on both sides.

Due to enemies of the Jews flooding social media with anti-Israel propaganda, a recent study found that anti-Semitism has skyrocketed about 50% on America’s college campuses. The number one contributor to the rise of Jew-hatred in American universities is the anti-Israel “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement.      The Islamist-inspired BDS campaign against the Nation

Whoever promotes Palestine today promotes the rise of Hamas. It’s as inevitable as storms after strong winds.

What do their references about killing Jews, and a perverse Islamic view of what is a Jew, have to do with Palestinian self-determination, except perhaps for their stated condition that a Palestine must be Judenrein – Jew free?
Barry Shaw (Fighting Hamas, BDS and Anti-Semitism: Fighting violence, bigotry and hatred)
It’s a hackneyed trope of Holocaust revisionism in service of the Palestinian cause to equate Hamas-controlled Gaza with the Warsaw Ghetto. This portrayal is designed to gain sympathy for the Arabs in the Gaza Strip. It also equates Israel, the Jewish State, as the new Nazis.
Barry Shaw (Fighting Hamas, BDS and Anti-Semitism: Fighting violence, bigotry and hatred)
In truth, they want it as a statement of conquest, to plant their flag to displace the Jewish infidel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem. It’s less about having their state. It’s more about destroying our state and planting their victory flag over Jerusalem.
Barry Shaw (Fighting Hamas, BDS and Anti-Semitism: Fighting violence, bigotry and hatred)
Palestinian Authority denounced the existence of any Jewish history in Jerusalem. In this report, they claimed that the Jewish Temple “exists only in the minds of radical organizations.

When Mohammed conquered Medina, the booty included the public beheading of eight hundred men and boys and the enslavement of their girls and women. He destroyed the last remaining Jewish tribe of Qurayzah at the Jewish city of Khaibar.

Like in the time of Esther, God has a Jewish girl hidden in the palace! She was born a Jew, then adopted and grafted into the commonwealth of Israel. She lived in every foreign land, hid her Jewish identity, took a Gentile name, and followed the celebrations of the nations where she lived. She grew in beauty and majesty, and she’s married to the King. Do you know her name? That’s right—the Church is her name. And now that the plot to destroy all the Jews has been revealed…her uncle, Mordecai (Messianic Jews), is begging her (the Church) to go before the King and intercede for the lives of her relatives. But will she do it? Will she fast and pray? Will she cry out as a watchman on the walls? Or will she remain silent, hoping the curse will somehow disappear, saying, “I am not of those people any longer; they rejected their King and I am married to Him; they brought these troubles on their own heads; why should I stick my neck out for them? If they are God’s chosen people, then He will certainly take care of them!” Listen to the words of Mordecai when Hadassah, Esther, was concerned for her own safety above the salvation of her people. Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this? (Esther 4:12-14) Yes, that’s right, Church! You are God’s hidden plan for the salvation of Israel and the blessing of all the peoples on Earth! Will you fast and pray? Will you go before the King and cry out for your people? Or will you continue to give comfort and aid to Haman, embrace replacement theology (discussed in chapter 8), support BDS, and refuse shelter and supply to the Jews? For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you will have missed the day of your visitation—even the very purpose for which you were brought to the Kingdom. The adversary, the usurper, is seeking to destroy the whole house of Israel again because… a King is coming!
Paul Wilbur (A King is Coming)
In this sense (although the 2004 Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice would, despite Oslo and subsequent agreements, reaffirm Israel's status as occupying power with all the responsibilities for the occupied population that are specified in the key documents of international humanitarian law), the Oslo agreements were designed in part to relieve Israel of many of the burdens of occupation-- as well as the need to police a restive population on a daily basis.
