The anti-Israel haters have once again broken the law in order to spread their anti-Semitic propaganda on the London underground.

Special Patrol Group appear to be claiming responsibility for illegal adverts posted inside London underground trains today which smear Puma and falsely accuse Israel of being “apartheid”.

The adverts feature the words “Boycott – Give Puma the Boot” and claim Puma are “proud sponsors of Israeli apartheid”. The adverts were illegally placed on the tube and they also use Puma’s logo, and are defamation against the company, which is also unlawful.

The anti-Israel BDS movement hailed the “subvertising” (creating spoof adverts) of Puma and have called for people to get involved in the anti-Semitic day of boycotting Puma on 26 October – which if you want to counter anti-Semitism, maybe consider supporting Puma on that day.

The boycott campaign against Puma is nothing more than hysterical fake news.

The BDS outrageously accuses the global sportswear manufacturer of being “involved in violations of international law and human rights”, simply because it sponsors the Israel Football Association (IFA).

Israel itself is not violating international law or human rights and it is outrageous to claim that a sports brand is doing so simply because it sponsors Israeli teams. It would be as fake as accusing Nike of committing “war crimes” simply because it sponsors England’s football team. It is not true and should be rejected.

This call to action against Puma is also the perfect view of how hypocritical the boycott movement is against Israel. Puma is not responsible for the actions of any country, it simply sponsors teams within countries.

Sussex Friends of Israel has helpfully highlighted that Puma sponsors teams in Turkey, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Cuba, Egypt, Morocco and many other countries with questionable human rights records. There is no global boycott campaign against any of these countries. There is only a boycott campaign against Israel, because the BDS movement is anti-Semitic at its core, singling out the only Jewish country in the world and ignoring real abusers of human rights.

Sadly, some people are being fooled into supporting this anti-Semitic boycott. It appears Donegal Celtic, a football team in Belfast, have joined the protest and are supporting calls to boycott Puma.

Let’s pray against this anti-Semitic boycott movement and continue to raise our voices in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
