To teach people to relate to the overwhelming majority of Jews, that is Jews do not agree with BDS, as apologists for apartheid, Nazism or colonialism is to teach people to relate to those Jews in an antisemitic way. If BDS says that Israel is apartheid and that anybody who does not agree with boycotting Israel is a supporter of apartheid, then it is setting up a framework for Jew-baiting. If anti-Zionists say that Israel is genocidal, is like the Nazis, that Zionism is similar to Nazism, then they are inciting people to treat Jews as though they were Nazis.

No, the Guardian didn’t accuse Israel of drifting into fascism as such. However, in contextualizing a few isolated pieces of legislation – blown out of proportion by Israel’s critics – within the broad Guardian lens of ‘a country moving dangerously to the right’, and featuring the word ‘fascism’ prominently within this framing, they once again amplified an intellectually unserious smear that doesn’t withstand even the most rudimentary critical scrutiny.
As we’ve often demonstrated, despite the best efforts of boycotters, Israel is thriving. The economic impact of BDS on the state’s economy is extremely marginal. However, not only do these facts about […]
