Israel Finally Goes on Offense Against BDS

Well, they’re not banging heads, but Israel is taking (some) names of the leaders of organizations who promote BDS, making them officially persona non grata in the country. At last.

Here’s the list so far:


  • AFPS (The Association France Palestine Solidarité)
  • BDS France
  • BDS Italy
  • ECCP (The European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine)
  • FOA (Friends of Al-Aqsa)
  • IPSC (Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign)
  • Norge (The Palestine Committee of Norway) Palestinakomitee
  • PGS (Palestine Solidarity Association in Sweden)
  • Palestinagrupperna i Sverige
  • PSC (Palestine Solidarity Campaign)
  • War on Want
  • BDS Kampagne


  • AFSC (American Friends Service Committee)
  • AMP (American Muslims for Palestine)
  • Code Pink
  • JVP (Jewish Voice for Peace)
  • NSJP (National Students for Justice in Palestine)
  • USCPR (US Campaign for Palestinian Rights)

Latin America*

  • BDS Chile

South Africa

  • BDS South Africa International
  • BNC (BDS National Committee)

* What?? No Argentinean groups? Maybe all the Nazis finally expired.

This is a start. But it needs to spread deeper and wider. As does information about the depth of the entrenchment of anti-Semitism in Europe.

Norway is a good example. When Breivik massacred all those kids on Utøya Island in 2011, he killed off many of the next generation’s pro-Palestinian BDS leaders. Mark Humphrys devoted a page of his own investigations into Breivik, and into the history of the AUF, whose youngsters had gathered on the island for summer fun: to bash evil Israel.

The AUF youth camp themselves hosted terrorists:

Fatah Youth went to the camp: “It is with consternation that we have received the dramatic news of an awful terrorist attack against a summer camp ran by our comrades of Norwegian Labor Youth AUF … The Fatah Youth group had taken part in the summer camp in the past on the Island of Utoya … Fatah Youth has participated for almost 15 years in the same summer camp”.

Read Mark’s page to see how remarkably open the AUF is about its hatred of Israel and the responsibility (at least among their leadership) for the deaths of innocent Israelis.

He says some of the children initially thought they were in a game:

Apparently, the children and youths were so full of anti-Israel hatred that some of them thought the shooting might be a simulation of Israeli crimes, meant to teach them how bad Israel is.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

It’s good that Israel is beginning to push back more robustly against this blood libel. Until they provide their own sanctioning of the leaders of BDS, it will only grow.

In some possibly related good news, early last year Canada’s government formally refused to validate BDS. The formal condemnation was introduced in Parliament by the Conservatives but was also broadly supported by the liberals, with an endorsement of the motion by Trudeau.

Some months later, Ottawa University also rejected any support; they voted instead to “to remove all language related to BDS, and replace it with a statement of support for peace between Israelis and Palestinian Arabs”.

Perhaps the odious BDS movement has peaked and is beginning a deserved roll-back. Israel’s decision to ban its leaders is a good start.

  1. Maybe the could place the whole of our Labour Party on the list, together with all of our mealy-mouthed singers, actors and comedians here in the UK.

  2. These ‘children’ were young men and women. They were the cream of the nation’s social elite and being lovingly groomed for ‘diversity’ and treason. The day before the massacre they had a big celebration of the Palestinian terror flotilla of that time that resembled Orwell’s ’15 minutes of hate’ against Israel. Not apologizing for the mass murder – the damage to our cause was immense – but I have a ‘thing’ for knowing the truth, regardless.

  3. I’m very happy Israel is taking steps to protect itself, and making support for BDS come at a personal price for the lemming members of organizations supporting boycotts. The BDS movement is simply another cultural Marxist ploy to demolish some functioning Western culture, any functioning Western culture. Israel is a pretty good Western-style country, including a large, though not unlimited, component of personal liberty.

    Having said that, I don’t believe it’s the place of governments to control the speech and actions of private organizations. If a US organization funded entirely by private funds wants to support BDS, by all means, don’t use any government power against them. Colleges and universities, recipients of oceans of public funds, except for maybe Hilsdale College, are emphatically NOT free to implement a BDS policy. Nor are city or state governments, unless they exist totally without taxes.

    My prediction is that liberal Jewish organizations will gradually slide towards a BDS position, putting their support for Israel into question. Liberal Judaism is simply too close to cultural Marxism to not be sympathetic to BDS. They are firmly in favor of a so-called two-state solution, which would mean giving military and diplomatic rights to a bunch of murderous thugs who even at the present give financial and moral support to out-and-out terrorists. My belief is that Jews in many countries emphatically do not act in their own interests. Their own interests lie in supporting and buttressing the governments based on European values, rather than destroying the foundations of civilization with unlimited admissions of sociopathic, low-IQ Muslims, Middle Easterners, and sub-Saharan Africans.

    And Trump’s descriptions of the Middle Eastern, African, and Caribbean countries
    sponsoring floods of immigrants to the US and other countries, is right on target.
