Let’s get this straight from the outset: YOU HATE. You hate Israel and you hate Jews, even if you happen to be Jewish by birth.
B-D-S: Boycott, Sanction and Divest. Your worldwide movement to take these three actions against Israel merely takes your hate from the recesses of a dark closet and shines the sunlight on it. Do not think for one minute that you do this out of care of the “poor palestinians (sic).” Please do not think that you are taking a moral high ground by taking these actions.
Sorry, but it is high time someone called a spade a spade: YOU HATE ISRAEL AND BY EXTENSION YOU HATE JEWS. It is modern day Nazism. And, I do not use that word lightly in any sense!
Let’s go back a little in time…
In March 1933, the Nazis won a large number of seats in the German parliament, the Reichstag. After this victory, there was widespread violence directed at Jewish businesses and individuals. Jewish lawyers and judges were physically prevented from reaching the courts
On 1 April 1933, the Nazis carried out their first nationwide, planned action against Jews: a boycott targeting Jewish businesses and professionals.
On the day of the boycott, the SA stood menacingly in front of Jewish-owned department stores and retail establishments. In addition, they stood in front of offices of professionals, such as doctors and lawyers. The Star of David was painted in yellow and black across thousands of doors and windows, with accompanying anti-Semitic slogans. Signs were posted saying “Don’t Buy from Jews!” (Kauf nicht bei Juden!), “The Jews Are Our Misfortune!” (Die Juden sind unser Unglück!) and “Go to Palestine!” (Geh nach Palästina!).
Now, let us take a look at some a few lines that describe the slogans of the BDS movement as presented by Stand with Us.
“The BDS activists adopt one simple slogan: ‘Free Palestine.’ But the extremism of the slogan is revealed by the chant that goes along with it, ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.’ The river is the Jordan, the sea the Mediterranean. Israel lies between them. The BDS activists are not interested in peaceful coexistence. They want to see Israel replaced by an Arab-majority Palestinian state. One of the main BDS leaders, Qatar-born Palestinian Omar Barghouti, admitted that even if Israel vacated all of the ‘West Bank,’ [Judea and Samaria]the BDS movement would continue until Israel was destroyed.”
In both the BDS movement and in the Nazi boycott movement, HATE was the motivating and driving force. They claim they boycott Israel due to the “occupation.” They claim Israel is an apartheid state. Yet, sadly for them, the facts just don’t bear that out. Go on a bus, visit a hospital, go to a supermarket, look at the court system, look at the police department, look at the arts, look at the sport world–and the list is endless–in all cases you will see Arabs and Jews participating. Look at the REAL pictures of Gaza and the luxury some live in in Gaza. Ask what happens to the millions poured into Gaza for repairs and what it has in actuality been used for (hint: terror).

And besides, dear merchants of hate, you can in no way shape or form truly boycott Israel and Israeli products; unless of course you don’t want to avail yourselves of almost ANY modern technology; cell phones; medical technology; medicine etc. Rather than list all of these items that you just won’t be able to avoid, read this article from Israel 21c. Here you will learn of the Top 25 Inventions of all time from Israel.
Let me ask you a few questions:
–If G-d forbid your baby was ill, and it was an Israeli medical procedure that could save your child would you use it? If so, why?
–Do you use a cell phone or a computer (which almost always contain Israeli technology or intellectual property)? If so,why?
–If you knew that there was an Israeli invention that could reduce highway driving deaths, would you use it? If so, why?
–Do you use a disk-on-key? If yes, why?
If you like diving, would you use a device, made by Israel, that could save your life while you were diving? If yes, why?
You are filled with two things, actually: HATE and JEALOUSY! You hate Israel so much that you would be willing to cut off your nose to spite your face. You are jealous that a tiny little speck of a country has had such a major impact on the world…and it is being done by Jews.
Are you so filled with hate and jealousy that you would be willing to forfeit advances that benefit you and your family? Why do you hate Israel so much? Why do you wish to deny the world advances that are for the good of the world?
Ah, the “occupation” you say…you are saddened by the so-called occupation. Aha, so I am curious: What is your stand on the occupation in Grenada; in parts of Vietnam; in the Falkland Islands; in the Maldives; in Northern Cyprus; Kosovo…Crimea…Donetsk???? No, there is no BDS movement related to any goods or services or academic resources from those countries. Why? Do not reply that they have no resources to boycott, as that is not accurate. Nope, only tiny Israel that has changed the world of medicine, technology, travel and so many other areas….JUST Israel is the target of your bile-filled venom.
You have been able to sell millions of people on the idea that Israel is the “bad guy.” You have poisoned the minds of so many when, in fact, all you do is spew your poison about the tiny little country that is saving the world, in so many ways.
On behalf of a few billion citizens of Earth, I kindly ask that you cease and desist. Let the world be a better place. Let Israel help humanity and advance the world beyond your wildest dreams. Do not change the dreams of the world into the nightmare of BDS.
