BDS movement responds to Pompeo's statement

The Boycott Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement said, today, that it will resist the US administration’s attempts to intimidate human rights defenders, to impose the Israeli-settler colonial system, occupation and apartheid.

The BDS movement responded to Pompeo after he said, speaking to reporters alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, “we will regard the global BDS campaign as anti-Semitic.” 

 "The Trump administration is trying to discredit the (BDS) movement," noting that it rejects in principle and consistently all forms of racism, including racism against Jews," the BDS movement said in its statement.
