"Reservists on Duty" Fighting to Counter BDS

(Jerusalem Post) Lidar Grave-Lazi - "Reservists on Duty" is attracting the support of hundreds of IDF reservists from across the political spectrum, says the group's co-founder, Amnon Goldstof. "The main goal of our organization is to fight against the new anti-Semitism and the groups that lead it, primarily BDS," says Goldstof, who adds that the boycott movement is a manifestation of classic anti-Semitism "pure and simple." "Old anti-Semitism wanted to see a world without Jews, and the new anti-Semitism wants to see a world without a Jewish country." "In Israel, we are comfortable because we live with a certain security, but when you go on campus [in the U.S.] you see Jews being attacked, whether they are Zionist or non-Zionist, simply because they are Jewish." He called it "unbelievable" that in 2016, Jews are afraid to walk around on the streets of many countries in the world and that every Jewish institution must hide behind a security barrier. "We see this as our civic duty to fight for the Jewish people and for Israel."
