VIDEO: The Many Faces of the BDS Movement

Omar Barghouti founded the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement in July 2005 after becoming a founding committee member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) in 2004 (PACBI joined the BDS campaign in 2005). He also co-founded the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions National Committee (BNC) in November 2007.

The BNC leads and supports the BDS movement and, according to Barghouti, “sets the overall strategies, the objectives of the movement.” Barghouti has expressed support for terrorism, promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and regularly demonizes Israel. He opposes the Jewish right to self-determination and Israel’s existence, openly calling for its destruction as a Jewish state.
