The Executive Council of Australian Jewry has ramped up its campaign against the boycott, divestment, sanction movement (BDS) in Australia with an information booklet outlining the history and aims of the BDS movement.
The booklet, which has been distributed to politicians, journalists and public officials lays bare the hypocrisy of the BDS brigades Down Under and summarizes the movement’s activities in Australia.
“It’s important that people know the true facts about BDS,” ECAJ public affairs director Alex Ryvchin told the Australian Jewish News. that the booklet aims to expose the lies behind the anti-Israel movement in Australia. “Their aim is not to build a Palestinian state, it is to destroy the Jewish one.”
The paper said the booklet also explores the links between BDS activities in Australia and anti-Semitism, including Holocaust denial and calls for violence against Jews.
“While denying that it is anti-Semitic, the BDS campaign has consistently failed to address the anti-Semitism its actions attract and encourage, and the anti-Semitism implicit in seeking to deny the Jewish people their right for national self-determination,” the booklet says.
