Ask yourself: Are there protests against North Korea, a dictatorship that starves its own people and holds approximately 200,000 of them in inhumane prison camps?
What about Syria, a country that has gassed its own people?
How about the Islamic terrorist state of “Death to America, Death to Israel” Iran?
Hatred of the one and only Jewish State meets Soviet dissident and Israeli leader Natan Sharansky’s 3-D test of antisemitism: Demonization, Double Standard and Delegitimization.
1) Why are Israel’s actions being demonized, especially when they are being targeted for annihilation while defending its citizens; recently from 700 rockets from Hamas?
2) Why is Israel being singled out by the U.N. for human rights violations when the true human rights violations of Cuba, Iran, Syria, China, etc. are being ignored? (Double Standard)
3) Why is Israel’s fundamental right to exist being denied? (Delegitimization)
That’s because anti-Zionism is antisemitism.
BDS is nothing more than a Hamas-inspired movement to cause the economic destruction of Israel.
Over the millennia, Jew hatred has morphed into the rejection of the Jewish State.
