Israel: Dozens of Hamas, PFLP Members Hold Senior Positions in Pro-BDS NGOs

(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - Israel's Strategic Affairs Ministry has found more than 100 links between the internationally-designated terrorist organizations Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the BDS movement. More than 30 members of Hamas and PFLP hold senior positions in BDS-promoting NGOs. Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said the new report "reveals the true nature and goals of the BDS movement and its connection to terrorism and anti-Semitism....BDS rejects Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state within any borders. They want to see Israel wiped off the map. Promoting boycotts is [just] a different means to achieve this goal." "I am calling on all governments, EU institutions, philanthropies, banks and fundraising platforms to end all support for organizations linked to terror."
