Abbas says no to BDSPoster Home
“No, we do not support the boycott of Israel.” — Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority
On college campuses throughout North America and Europe, BDS activisits see themselves as heroes campaigning for Palestinian rights. However, the Palestinian Authority government itself does not support the goals of BDS activists, who reject all efforts to normalize relationships between Israelis and Palestinians. Palestinians leaders claim that BDS makes the Palestinians appear as if they are not interested in peace and coexistence with Israel. “This goes against the PLO’s official policy, which is to seek a peace agreement with Israel based on the two-state solution,” said President Abbas on December 11, 2013.
When will BDS supporters realize that BDS is not only anti-Israel, but also anti-Palestinian and anti-peace?
