In a case of ironic breaking news, the co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel says it will not apply to a vaccine from Israel for the Coronavirus.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live we discussed the fraud that is the BDS movement.
Talk about an irony. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again. The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement against the State of Israel is an illegitimate social protest movement. Now, they’ve just proved that they are an illegitimate social protest movement.
How did they prove that? The co-founder of the BDS movement, which urges complete boycotts of Israeli products, just encouraged the movement’s supporters to seek out one Israeli-made product that they say is ok.
Last month, it was reported Israeli scientists were rapidly working on a Coronavirus vaccine. So if the Israelis come up with the vaccine to inoculate against the Coronavirus, the BDS movement will not apply. In other words, those who support BDS, you can go ahead and save your life with an Israeli product, just don’t buy their fruit.
Now you tell me what this movement is really about? Of course we’re in the middle of a pandemic. Doesn’t it just make sense that this is exactly what they are doing, because as we’ve said since the beginning, the BDS movement is a fraud.
Of course, we would all want everyone to get a vaccine that works, regardless. In fact, the Israeli’s would never use a similar boycott against the Palestinians and say they wouldn’t let them have the vaccine. Everyone knows that. This just shows just how hypocritical the BDS movement really is.
Jordan Sekulow made the following point:
Of course it’s a fraudulent organization. It’s a political movement to try and undermine the State of Israel – the Jewish State of Israel. At the same time, when it comes down to their own lives, are they willing to risk that? Absolutely not. They are not willing to risk their own lives if there is a potential vaccine created by the “apartheid” State of Israel.
They compare the Jewish state to a Nazi-like system of control and an apartheid system like South Africa. Yet, if you truly believe that, you wouldn’t take their medicine. You wouldn’t take their vaccines. You’d buy into some of the conspiracy theories like they were going to poison you, right?
They know deep down, the Israeli’s are not those kinds of people. They would never vaccinate people and do so in a knowingly harmful way, intentionally to hurt other people, even those who are their enemies. They know the goodness of the hearts of the Israeli people and the doctors and the medical personnel there, similar to how it is here in the United States, that we take care of enemies when they are found on the battlefield. They understand the same process works with Israelis.
Of course, this is boycott, divest, and sanction everything except for if that vaccine can help us so we can continue our campaign to delegitimize Israel, then we can go ahead and get that Israeli vaccine.
This shows the hypocrisy and what a fraud they are.
