European Parties Urged to Agree Israel Boycott Tactics Are Anti-Semitic

(Guardian-UK) Arthur Neslen - A conference in Brussels on Nov. 6-7 backed by the Israeli government is to push for all European political parties to sign up to "red lines" that declare boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) tactics to be "fundamentally anti-Semitic." The text proposed for prospective MEPs and political parties to sign up to is the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's "working definition of anti-Semitism." Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the founder of the European Jewish Association which is co-organizing the conference with the Europe Israel Public Affairs group, said: "These 'red lines' when passed will represent not our line in the sand but our line in the concrete, and serve as a wake-up call to politicians that the very future of Jewish Europe is on the line here."
