Activists from the Code Pink — a US leftwing group which acts to end American involvement in wars around the world and also supports the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment movement aimed at financially coercing Israel into withdrawing from West Bank settlements — arrived in Jerusalem and posed with signs calling for a boycott of the Jewish state near the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism.
Ariel Gold, a Code Pink activist whose Facebook cover photo shows her holding a sign saying “Jews say no to occupation,” tweeted and posted on Facebook a picture of another activist holding a sign with the words “Boycott Israel” and “Code Pink.”
“Jewish American @CODEPINK activists unfurl #BDS banner @ Western Wall 4 five min, seized by security #FreePalestine,” Gold wrote on her Facebook page.
On the group’s Facebook page, a photo was posted outside a building which the Hebrew NRG website said was a Remax real estate agency office. There, activists hold a sign with the words “American Jews support BDS, Re/Max sells apartheid. Stop Israeli settlements.”
