Terrorists in Suits: The BDS Movement’s Ties to Terrorism – JSL Radio Recap


For a long time, the ACLJ has been working to expose and defeat the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel.

On today’s broadcast, we discussed a major report that reveals many members of the BDS movement are known for terrorist activity, including hijackings, violence, and murder.

Known terrorists – including members of Hamas and Hezbollah – are adopting a more clandestine strategy to attack Israel under the guise of peaceful Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to promote and raise funds for BDS.

BDS is thinly veiled violent anti-Semitism. It is literally terrorists in suits.

According to the report:

“The terror groups have realized that armed conflict is not achieving its objective and is perceived as illegitimate by the majority of Western society. As a result, Hamas and PFLP operatives have infiltrated and adopted seemingly benign NGOs in the Palestinian Authority, Europe, North America and South Africa, for the purpose of advancing their ideological goal: the elimination of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.”

The report calls for an end to all international funding to BDS. Yet the European Union and the United Nations – which receive significant U.S. tax dollar support – continue to support anti-Semitic BDS and anti-Israel organizations.

As I asked the listening audience, how important is it you that the U.S. and our President stand for Israel and stop these anti-Israel, terrorist-infiltrated organizations?

We also gave you an update on a critical legal brief we filed today at the Supreme Court in support of the state Alabama’s ban on a gruesome procedure – dismemberment abortions. Alabama is trying to protect life, where states like New York – and almost Virginia – are essentially legalizing what I call live-birth abortions.

These states have stronger protections in place for convicted murderers and animals than they do for defenseless, unborn human babies. Today we urged the Supreme Court to take the case our of Alabama and allow these unborn babies to be saved.
