BDS Founder Confirms Movement Is About Ending the Jewish State - “Most definitely we oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine... Palestinians and Arabs in general have never, and will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.”
'Supporters of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement claim that BDS is about a two-state solution — and bettering the lives of the Palestinian people. At least that's what leftist college students, progressive activist groups,and most media outlets want to believe.
But if you take the word of BDS founder Omar Barghouti, peaceful coexistence is the last thing that BDS is about.
Any BDS supporter interested in the facts need only take four minutes of their life to know what they've signed up for. If they can put down the protest signs equating Zionism with Apartheid long enough to watch a video produced by the BDS watchdog group Canary Mission, Barghouti himself will clarify that the movement to which they've pledged allegiance is based on lies.
The idea of coexistence or a two-state solution is thrown out the window when Barghouti claims, "Most definitely we oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine," adding that, "Palestinians and Arabs in general have never, and will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state."
To hear him describe Zionism as a myth and still believe that the goal of the BDS movement is peaceful coexistence with Israel is a case study in denial.'
