The Ministry of Strategic Affairs releases a report it says details over 100 cases of ties between Palestinian terror organizations and groups that promote the boycotts, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel.
The report, titled “Terrorists in Suits,” accuses Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine of placing a number of their operatives in pro-BDS NGOs, including some who have been imprisoned on murder charges. The ministry says the NGOs mentioned in the report have received financial support from European countries.
“Terrorist groups and the anti-Israel boycott campaign have united in their goal of wiping Israel off the map. Terrorist groups view boycotts as a complementary tactic to terror attacks,” Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan says at a press conference.
“I urge all governments and financial institutions to investigate the activities of these BDS organizations, and immediately end all funding and support that they provide to them,” he adds.
