CJV Responds to US Identifying BDS as Anti-Semitic
November 19, 2020

In response to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s announcement that the United States will identify the Anti-Israel boycott movement (BDS) as Anti-Semitic, Rabbi Pesach Lerner, President of the Coalition for Jewish Values, issued the following statement:

“The Trump Administration has moved boldly for peace once again, by identifying the Israel boycott as a vehicle for hate and double standards. ‘BDS’ relabels the Arab boycott of 1945 to pretend it’s about fairness; the reality is that it’s about destroying Israel. Economic warfare against the Jewish community is the oldest trick in the Anti-Semite’s playbook, and the Jewish community in particular owes the Administration our enduring thanks.”
