Germany passes resolution condemning the BDS movement as ‘anti-Semitic’. The resolution states that the actions are a reminiscent of Germany’s Nazi past.
“We welcome the Bundestag resolution, adopted by a large majority, against BDS”, the Israeli Foreign Ministry officially responded. “The German parliament recognized the anti Semitic nature of BDS and its illegitimate boycott activities. This is an important step which we hope will be adopted by other European legislative bodies”.
Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. welcomed the decision of the German parliament to define the BDS movement as anti-Semitic. “This is a crushing victory for the truth”, said Danon, “and a great achievement in the struggle against Israel’s detractors”. Danon added that “Germany proved to BDS supporters that its lies do not go unnoticed, but will pay a price”.
