The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is a glorified form of anti-Semitism, not all that different from Nazi boycotts against Jews. Boycott protests are often accompanied with signs or shouts of Holocaust denial, or the opposite- praise for Hitler. They equate Gazans to Jews in concentration camps, a rather laughable idea as Shirlee Finn points out in her pictorial on Gaza and its amenities : Luxury in the World’s Largest Prison!
In The Nazi Roots of the Boycott-Israel Movement, Steven Plaut writes:
While its roots go back far earlier, ever since the 1930s the first manifestation of Nazi-like anti-Semitism has been to organize economic boycotts against Jews. On the day Hitler came to power in 1933 he ordered a nationwide campaign of BDS or “boycotts, divestment and sanctions” against Germany’s Jews. It was of course only the opening round in economic warfare and aggression directed against Jews. The Germans claimed that they were actually the victims of the Jews, who were occupying German territory. Sound familiar?
The Arab countries quickly took note of the lessons from Germany. As soon as Israel’s existence and independence were proclaimed, the Islamofascist world announced a total BDS campaign, including a trade embargo, against Israel. This boycott was generally also implemented against non-Israeli Jews, removing any doubt as to thereal agenda of the boycotters.
