The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and the organizations that fund it represent one of the most insidious and dangerous threats facing Israel today. The BDS movement retails “Palestinian” victimhood propaganda, often manufactured at the expense of “Palestinian” civilians who are deliberately put in harm’s way by Hamas, in order to cast Israel as similar to the former apartheid state of South Africa or worse. These organizations, and now the state of Navarre in Spain, emulate the Nazis in calling for a boycott of Jewish businesses. The enemedia and many Western governments are obsessed with the nearly non-existent threat of neo-Nazism. The BDS supporters are the real neo-Nazis.
“Spanish state of Navarre adopts BDS policy,” JTA, June 15, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
For the first time the parliament of a Spanish region adopts official in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel
The vote last month by the Parliament of the Chartered Community of Navarre in Spain’s north was passed thanks to the support of representatives of all the parties represented in parliament except the centre-right Popular Party, the ACOM pro-Israel advocacy wrote in a statement Friday.
The motion passed on May 21 says the parliament of Navarre calls on the central government to “support any initiative promoted by the international BDS campaign.” It also calls on Spain to “suspend its ties with Israel “until that country ceases its policy of criminal repression of the Palestinian population.”
Navarre is one of 17 autonomous communities — states with their own parliaments, who together make up the quasi-federal Spanish state. Catalonia’s parliament last year declared independence from Spain, though Madrid declined to recognise the declaration. Navarre has a substantial Basque population and a strong separatist movement.
The motion went on to condemn Israel for “murdering” dozens of Palestinians in May. The condemnation is a reference to Hamas-organised riots along the border with Israel, which featured hundreds of firebombs and attempt to break the fence into Israel. Of 61 people killed in the riots on May 14, 50 were Hamas members, according to one senior member of that organisation….
The Navarre motion does mentions neither Hamas, violence along the border nor Israel’s right to defend itself. ACOM condemned it as discriminatory. In recent years, ACOM actions have led to the scrapping, annulment or suspension of 24 motions to boycott Israel by Spanish municipalities. Courts throughout the kingdom have declared such motions discriminatory and unconstitutional….
