The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel has long been called anti-Semitic and a threat against Israel. However, BDS supporters argue that they only seek Israel to reform and that they don’t hate Israel. The truth, confirmed by BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti, is that the BDS movement seeks the end of Israel.

In a newly recorded interview on May 21 with the Gazan Voice Podcast, Omar Barghouti explains that should the movement’s goals be achieved, Israel would cease to exist.

“If the refugees return to their homes [in Israel] as the BDS movement calls for, if we bring an end to Israel’s apartheid regime and if we end the occupation on lands occupied in 1967, including Jerusalem, what will be left of the Zionist regime? That’s the question. Meaning, what will the two states be based on?” he said.

During the 20-minute interview in Arabic to the Gazan audience, Barghouti appears to have let slip the real objective of the movement he founded.

“International law and the right of return? There won’t be any Zionist state like the one we speak about [in present-day Israel]. There will be two states: One democratic for all its citizens here [Palestine] and one democratic for all its citizens there [Israel]. The Palestinian minority will become a Palestinian majority of what is today called Israel.”

A number of British politicians support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement which is directed from Ramallah in the West Bank and campaigns to mobilize support in Western countries against Israel under the false premise that it seeks only “to change Israeli government policy.” The movement calls for the boycotting of all Israeli products and isolating Israel politically and through trade.

Israel, the world’s only Jewish state, is the only country to be targetted with such a movement, highlighting the anti-Semitic nature of the movement.
