Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon hosted a gathering of supporters at UN Headquarters in New York Wednesday for a rally against the international effort to Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) the Jewish State. His address covered a wide variety of tactics to combat BDS, from legal and political moves at the UN and in individual countries to social media activity and, for those who could, direct business ties with Israeli companies and the promotion of tourism to Israel.
“We are here to send a simple message to the BDS movement: to the bullies who harass students on campus, to those who use the language of civil rights to mask their hate, to the activists who are conducting this illegal and unjust campaign of hate; your time is over, your movement based on lies and intimidation is coming to an end,” he told the crowd. “We will use every tool and every legal measure to stop the hate.”
ACLJ in Washington, DC also warns that President Obama is poised to betray Israel in his final days in office. There are reports that the Administration is plotting to use the U.N. Security Council against Israel.
It’s a renewed attempt to abandon Israel, slash its borders, leave it defenseless, and force our greatest ally in the Middle East to make dangerous concessions to terrorists before negotiations even begin.
Palestinian terrorists have launched over 300 attacks on Israelis – literally stabbing women and children in the back – murdering Israeli civilians and American citizens.
We must not force Israel into talks with terrorists. Israel must not be forced to negotiate with a Palestinian Authority that empowers terrorists. Jerusalem should be united, not divided.
Contact your Members of Congress and tell them to Defend Israel and Stop Forced Negotiations with Terrorists
