BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is a movement designed to devastate the Israeli economy. While the need to create justice and peace is of utmost importance, the BDS movement is an under-handed anti-Semitic movement intended to pummel Israel’s Jewish population.
One-sided BDS proponents twist facts and history, casually ignoring the fact that nearly 1.7 million Israeli citizens (21% of Israel) are Muslim and nearly 200,000 are Christian. If successful, BDS would harm nearly 2 million Christians and Arabs (!) peacefully living in Israel as citizens and do business there. Palestinian families depending on jobs in Israel would also be harmed. Thousands of Palestinians enter Israel daily for jobs and income.
BDS unfairly targets everyone. It spreads anti-Semitism (attacks up about 60% from last year), hatred, and murderous ethnic genocide, as happened in Pittsburgh. I will introduce legislation banning contracts to any business attempting to boycott, divest from, or sanction the State of Israel.
Israel is under attack daily. It is bombarded by rockets fired from Israel’s northern and southern borders by terrorists intent upon killing innocent families, students, farmers and children. Terrorist groups have an estimated 150,000 rockets within miles of Israel’s borders. This truth must be spread — not the lies of BDS supporters bending truth and fact.
BDS supporters don’t recognize the above facts nor show balance in their ruthless objective to destroy Israel. I will tirelessly broadcast such facts. I will oppose BDS and fight anti-Semitism – in major news networks, on college campuses, and on the streets of New York. No candidate will more passionately protect Jewish communities.
BDS people fuel the designs of those promoting violent attacks on the Jewish population. I will disrobe lies perpetuated by those who masquerade as “enlightened” but who in reality do the sick work of groups bent upon destroying Israel or murdering Jews.
Everyone in New York, from African American to Christian to Hispanic, must hear the truth, for an attack on one is an attack on all.
