Many fail to recognize that those driving the BDS agenda have ambitions that extend well beyond Israel. For them, Israel is the small Satan whilst America is the big Satan. The founder of the largest on-campus BDS organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, has called for a violent uprising, "an Intifada", here in America against the United States. Leading BDS leaders and top signatories of the foundational document of the BDS Movement have been connected to a range of groups shut down by the Justice Department for raising money on behalf of Hamas and other terrorist or radical groups.
The acceptance of these groups as legitimate voices in public discourse is dangerous. Those who justify suicide bombings in Tel Aviv or stabbings in Jerusalem, also endorse the brutal murder of American civilians in the World Trade Center. Indeed, the same radical Islamist groups that staged violent anti-Israel protests on the streets of Europe in the summer of 2014 have provided fertile ground for ISIS and others to recruit those that have committed the recent wave of attacks in Brussels, Paris, London, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and San Bernardino in the US.
History has taught us that when Jewish people are targeted with economic sanctions, much more dangerous things are on the horizon - and the consequences often extend well beyond the Jewish community.
What begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews. So, for the sake of Israel and America and all those who share Western values, we must stop BDS today. Nothing less than our future and our very way of life is at stake.
