BDS activists lobby stores not to carry Israeli
products and encourage others not to purchase
them. They send letters to artists, musicians,
authors, and academics, imploring them not to
perform and appear in Israel or cooperate with
From companies that do business with Israel –
Distorting the concept of ethical investing, non-
governmental organizations (NGOs) accuse
companies that conduct business in Israel of
involvement in war crimes and violations of
international law. The NGOs approach investors,
primarily large banks and pension funds, and push
for the exclusion of these companies.
Against self-defense measures – Anti-Israel
activists demand that the international
community enact comprehensive sanctions
against Israel – treating Israel as a pariah state.
The ultimate goal is legally enforced sanctions by
the UN Security Council. Other forms of sanctions
include arms embargoes, which are premised on
baseless charges of war crimes. Similarly, legal
proceedings are initiated against Israeli officials to
punish Israel for defensive actions.
The Palestinian Civil Society’s Complaint:
1. They object strongly to the wall Israel is building.
2. They object to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank,
including East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, & the Golan
3. They object to Jewish settlements that continue to
4. They object to Israel’s existence & believe that
Palestinians were “ethnically” cleansed.
The Palestinian Civil Society’s Call to Action:
1. They seek non-violent, punitive measures.
2. They ask the international community of the world
to impose broad boycotts & implement divestment
initiatives against Israel- similar to those used in S.
Africa to fight apartheid.
3. They are seeking sanctions & embargoes against

of Palestinian-Arab citizens of Israel to full equality.
3. They want Israel to respect, protect, and promote
the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their
homes & properties.
Let’s take a look at a
few of the “peace
loving” supporters of
the BDS movement…
Council of National & Islamic Forces in Palestine
Includes both PLO & Non-PLO factions.
Some organizations are listed as terrorists in
This group’s committee includes: Fatah, Hamas,
& Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine
Al-Ard Committees for the Defense of the Right of Return-
• This group was outlawed in Israel in 1964 because Palestinian
Arab Communities inside Israel feared Al-Ard would destroy
• Syria is an enemy of Israel. They don’t recognize the State of
Israel. There have not been diplomatic relations with Israel &
• The President of Syria even declared the “Arab world’s
intention to fight against Israel.”
The PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization)
• Formed in 1964 with the purpose of liberating Palestine
using armed conflict!
• Seeks to destroy Zionism in the Middle East.
• Was considered a terrorist organization until the 90s.
• Fatah, which has a number of militant groups, is a member
of the PLO.
• According to the U.N., the PLO is the primary representative
of the Palestinian people.
• Many followers of the PLO have joined either Hamas or
Hezbollah (terrorist groups)
National Forum of Martyr’s Families, Palestine
• Islam’s definition of ‘martyr’ differs greatly from the universally
• Martyrs of Islam can include: suicide bombers, jihadists, anyone
killed fighting unbelievers, etc. So if you died while attacking
Israel or Jews, this group supports that!
• Abba’s Fattah declared that a Palestinian man who was killed
while trying to attack Israeli troops is a “heroic martyr.”
Popular Committee – al-‘Azza (Beit Jibreen)
refugee camp, Bethlehem
• The Popular Front for the Liberation of
Palestine is a terrorist organization. Are they
the same group as above? Probably. The BDS
website is purposely vague.
• This group has ties with China, Russia, Syria,
S. Yemen, Libya, Iraq, & Iran.
• This group opposes negotiations with Israel.
Take a look at a few
quotes from supporters
of the movement…
“The current phase has all the emblematic
properties of what may be considered the
final chapter of the Zionist project. We are
witnessing the rapid demise of Zionism, and
nothing can be done to save it, for Zionism is
intent on killing itself. I, for one, support

Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel
(PACBI) Omar Barghouti (2004)
“Justice and freedom for the
Palestinians are incompatible with
the existence of the State of Israel.”
- As'ad Abu Khalil, a central activist in
the U.S. (2012)
“OK, fine. So BDS does mean the end of the
Jewish state.... I view the BDS movement as a
long-term project with radically
transformative potential....In other words,
BDS is not another step on the way to the final
showdown; BDS is The Final Showdown.”
- Pro-BDS author Ahmed Moor

Churches that have joined this movement
have left the teachings of the Bible,
& they have erroneously embraced a
social Gospel. Their desire to solve world
problems like poverty, slums, poor
nutrition, education, crime & war has
blinded them from the truths found in the
eternal Word of God!
These churches love to
make Jesus a social
crusader, only , & not the
Messiah of Israel!
So what does the Bible &
the Messiah teach about
Abraham’s grandson Jacob (through Isaac)
was renamed Israel (by God Himself)-
Jacob (Israel) had 12 sons who became the 12
tribes of Israel- Gen. 46
When Jacob died, his bones were carried to
Israel as an eternal sign that God would bring
Israel back from their captivity & place them
in the land once again- Gen. 46:4
The prophet Ezekiel had a vision of dry bones
coming to life (Ezekiel 37)
The dry bones are the entire house of Israel &
the eternal God promised to bring them back
to Israel (Ezekiel 37:12).
Ezekiel’s ancient prophecy was fulfilled in
Israel’s history goes
all the way back to
the book of
Ishmael was not the son of promise
(Romans 9:9), Isaac was.
Even so, God promised to bless
Ishmael, and He did (Gen. 17:20).
But Ishmael’s descendants have been
at war with the son of promise for
thousands of years (Gen. 16:12).
Ishmael’s descendants include:
Ishmaelites from the area between the
Persian Gulf & Sinai Peninsula,
Ishmaelites from the countries of Saudi
Arabia, Jordan, & Iraq, and Bedouins.
Father Abraham had 2 Sons…
Ishmael was NOT given
inheritance rights to the land of
Israel, Isaac was!
But, that’s not fair!
Ishmael was Abraham’s
God’s definition of ‘fair’ is
much higher than man’s
definition of ‘fair!’
And since God created
EVERYTHING, He gets to call the
& He has decided that Israel
belongs to the descendants of
Isaac (through his son Jacob)-
God’s Words, Not Mine…
Concerning Israel Reference
“Do NOT curse these people (Israel)
for they are blessed!”
God will turn every curse against
Israel into a blessing!
God will personally save Israel &
make her a blessing to the nations
who cursed her!
Israel is, and will forever be, the
apple of God’s eye!
In essence, the BDS
movement is a modern day
curse upon Israel which God
will NOT allow!
By the way, Jesus made it
perfectly clear that He was
called, first , to the “lost
