Bundestag falsely brands BDS movement anti-Semitic | Intrepid Report.com – Linda S. Heard

On Friday, Germany’s Bundestag voted to brand support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) as anti-Semitic in response to a motion submitted by the Christian Democratic Party, the Greens and the Free Democrats. The resolution cited stickers urging consumers not to buy Israeli goods and appeals to blacklist Israeli artists as echoing Germany’s dark Second World War history.

One deluded lawmaker claimed the movement’s campaigns are influenced by Nazi propaganda. “We hopefully remember the many hate-filled images from the Third Reich, where one could see signs with the writing, ‘Germans don’t buy from Jews’, a first step on the way to genocide,” he said.

Several others showed concern that the success of Eurovision Song Contest, reluctantly held in Tel Aviv’s Expo Centre because of its organiser’s refusal of an occupied Jerusalem venue, had been undermined by BDS campaigns.
