BDS Movement Responsible for Most Anti-Semitism in the US, Study Confirms

A new report set to be released by several non-governmental organizations seems to confirm that the rise in anti-Semitism across America over the last few years is due to the far-left “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” movement, Fox News reports.

The report is 120 pages long and titled “The New Anti-Semites.” It has been endorsed by 23 other NGOs in anticipation of its release. According to the report, “much of this hatred is often disguised under the veil of the delegitimization campaign against the Jewish State of Israel.”

Despite the media narrative trying to focus on right-wing anti-Semitism, which has been rare in recent years, the report highlights how BDS and other left-wing movements are responsible for not only more institutionalized instances of anti-Semitism, but also more violence as well.

Last week, two members of the Black Hebrew Israelites, a far-left hate group with known anti-white and anti-Semitic views, opened fire on a kosher market in Jersey City, killing four before both attackers were also killed.

The report follows President Trump’s recent signing of an executive order aimed at combating institutional anti-Semitism in the United States, particularly on college campuses. The order calls for stricter enforcement of discrimination laws on such campuses under Title VI, and allows the Department of Education to “withhold funding from from schools that it found in violation of Title VI,” including schools that support BDS.
