In Australia, BDS is already facing a legal challenge as the Israel Law Center moves to prove it is a racist entity.

Israeli Law Center (Shurat HaDin) has filed a legal suit in the Australian federal court against the director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at Sydney University in Australia Jake Lynch for supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Shurat HaDin previously filed a complaint against Lynch at the Australian Human Rights Commission. The new lawsuit states that Lynch’s support of the BDS movement violates Australia’s Racial Discrimination Act and is particularly focused in Lynch’s refusal to sponsor Hebrew University of Jerusalem academic Dan Avnon.

The “lawfare” organization, which has won suits for millions of dollars against the Palestinian Authority and agencies that abet terror, is seeking a court order requiring Lynch to apologize and renounce his BDS campaign, stating that his participation in and support of the BDS movement has led to “adverse distinction, exclusion, restriction and adverse preference based on the Jewish race, descent, national and ethnic origin of goods, services, persons and organizations,”  The Australian reported.

Lynch dismissed the accusations against him, saying he is certain that “we will prove, in court if necessary, that it does not amount to any form of discrimination or racism.”

  1. Jake Lynch,, one day you will come to regret your actions because in the final analysis the Bible tells us God is on the side of the Jewish people. But for our time let it come to court and justice prevail.

  2. I believe people are "neglecting" to mention the Chinese, North Korean's, Palestinians and first and foremost in the news, Syria. Get a grip. Specifically state what the Jews have done wrong, and present your proof. You have also cursed yourself and your followers Mr. Lynch. Hope you're pleased with the eternal outcome.

  3. I personally think Lynch is stating double standards of racism against Israels People on their own land, when Australian Aboriginal People are the true first Nathans of Australia for thousands of years…Idiot.
