Don't buy from Jews.

While Israel continues to be subject to intensified terrorist atrocities – six attacks in the last 2 days – (ignored as usual by the main stream media), the campaign to boycott Israel also intensifies. Some people have suggested similarities between this boycott Israel campaign and the Nazi boycott of Jews in the 1930s. As the following table makes clear there is absolutely no basis for arguing that these boycott campaigns are in any way similar.

Nazi boycott Anti-Israel boycott
What was/is the ultimate objective Physical destruction of the entire Jewish race Physical destruction of the entire Jewish state
What was/is it based on The singling out and demonization of Jews  based on a set of complete lies (propagated by
anti-Semitic bigots) about the political, economic, social and religious behaviour
of Jews
The singling out and demonization of the Jewish state based on a set
of complete lies (propagated by anti-Semitic bigots) about political, economic,
social and religious behaviour of the Jewish state
What was/must be ignored and
covered up at all costs to maintain the momentum
The genuine atrocities committed by the Nazis and their proxies against
the Jews
The genuine atrocities committed by the Arab states and their
terrorist proxies against the Jews
Who was/is the real brains
behind it
Hard core anti-semites, national socialists, and politically active
academics and lawyers
Hard core anti-semites, socialists, and politically active academics
and lawyers
Who else supports/supported it? All the Arab states and also anti-Semites in the rest of the world All the Arab states and also anti-Semites in the rest of the world
Business targets Only Jewish owned businesses (or those working with them) Only Jewish owned businesses (or those working with them)
Academic targets Only Jewish academics (or those working with them) Only Jewish academics (or those working with them)
Tactics: Direct Action 1 Anti-semitic mobs vandalised Jewish-owned shops and their products Anti-semitic mobs vandalise Jewish-owned Israeli shops and their products
Tactics: Direct Action 2 Anti-semitic, swastika wearing, mobs daubed Stars of David on the
windows, walls and products of Jewish owned businesses
Anti-semitic mobs daub Stars of David and swastikas on the windows,  walls and products of Jewish owned Israeli businesses
Tactics: Media propaganda Cartoons of big fat Jews who control the world and eat non-Jewish
babies; non-stop articles written by anti-Semitic liars demonizing Jews
Cartoons of big fat Jews who control the world and eat non-Jewish
babies; non-stop articles written by anti-Semitic liars demonizing the Jewish
state
Tactics: Lawfare Special Nazi laws introduced to both outlaw Jewish-owned businesses and
criminalise attempts by anybody else to work with them
Special EU and Arab laws introduced to outlaw Jewish-owned Israeli businesses
and criminalise attempts by anybody else to work with them
Tactics: Secondary boycott Non-Jews visiting Jewish houses and businesses were publicly vilified
and threatened to be boycotted themselves if they did not cease their
interaction with Jews
Non-Jews visiting the Jewish state and doing business with it are
publicly vilified and threatened to be boycotted themselves if they do not
cease their interaction with the Jewish state
Ultimately who other than Jews was/is
affected
Rest of the world suffered from loss of scientific and cultural
contribution from Jews

contribution from Jews
What was/will be the ultimate outcome
of the boycott
Millions of Jews died, but it did not help the Nazis in any way at
all
Millions of Jews may die, but it will not help the Palestinians in
any way at all

Edgar Davidson started blogging in 2005, to protest the blatant anti-Israel bias that permeates every aspect of British society. He always seeks new ways to highlight the hypocrisy of the anti-Israel narrative (he also runs the purely satirical blog Free Palestine Now). Edgar now spends much of his time in Israel, where he has an apartment.

  1. In the 1930s, the land of Israel was under the rule of the British Mandate, which had been given the duty to re-establish a Jewish homeland by the League of Nations at the San Remo Conference: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/san_remo.html The people of Israel was all over the world (including at home, in Jerusalem and Hebron). In Germany, Chancellor Hitler and the Nazi Party decided to exterminate all the Jews of Europe while in their re-established homeland, the British failed to protect the Jews from Hitler’s best Arab buddy: the Mufti of Jerusalem, so they too had to face life threatening conditions, boycotts, and massacres in Jerusalem, Hebron, and everywhere they dared live. Adding insult to injury, the British produced a “little white book” preventing the Jewish immigration to the Jewish Homeland that they had sworn to the world to facilitate. Do you think this answers your question?

  2. The nazi’s did not try to hide their anti semitism They didn’t hate behind euphimistic slogans about so called palestinians of whom they really care nothing about.
    This BDS movement is not about love for the so called arabs, but rather it’s about hate for the Jews

  3. Before any of these people take another drug or use technology let them make sure it didn’t come from isreal. All the medical breakthroughs isreal has come up with. I’d like to see them refuse the pill that’s a camera to see inside your body etc. And let them refuse the technological breakthroughs . They are ignorant . These so called colleges.

  5. YA YA BEING ANTI SEMITIC IS GUT FOR BUSINESS. Glad you are beginning to see it now. The arab propaganda war, fed by the EU and USA with billions of dollars, has permeated everything from media to the Jewish Federation to our sysnagues where Imams are invited for Shabbos. No lie. There is money for being p.c. i.e. anti Israel. NGOS and peace organizations, University Chairs, professorships, etc, all paid for petr0. and western dollars. Nice. The only way to fight fire is with fire. Israel must retaliate, and it begins today by refusing to let those murderers go on Dec 29- at least not without Pollard. That is right, a prisoner exchange, and yes, we did change the rules on them. So what? Deborah, AM israel Chai.

  6. There is only one way to combat this kind of public humiliation, and that involves doing the opposite of what is now being done. by the leadership of Israel and the leadership in the US and Britian.

  7. Like the catalogued list of similarities between Nazi ideology and Islamist ideology, (compiled by two young German social scientists) the above list is concise to the point. The political correct media and human rights oriented academics cannot escape evidence as presented here and elsewhere.

  9. I whollly agree with Judith grayson about the british. In their history about how they treated the jews, expelling them twice and betraying them after world war 2. Look where they are today. Nowhere, and rightfully so. To hell with them and all the other jew haters of this world. Let their ills be cured by other jew haters but not by jews.

  14. Imagine how many people who would be alive and free’er. If the world spent all this time and energy on places like Iran, Palestinians and Susan and China. We could have made the world a much much better place. So sad.
