NOAM CHOMSKY ON WHY CLINTON "FEARS" BDS
|World renown linguist, philosopher and intellectual, Professor Noam Chomsky, has said that: “Boycott and sanctions make perfectly good sense…you can understand why Hillary Clinton is frightened of them. They might undermine the policy of her husband and his predecessors, and Obama, as well, to support Israeli violence and aggression…and the nonviolent [BDS] actions to undermine this, legitimate actions, of course frighten Hillary Clinton enormously.

VIDEO: HILLARY CLINTON ATTACKS SOUTH AFRICAN INSPIRED BDS BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL MOVEMENT
|United States presidential contender Hillary Clinton has attacked the South African inspired, non-violent, citizen-led, Palestinian-headed, international BDS boycott of Israel movement. Speaking at the pro-Israeli lobby American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) she said: “we have to be united in fighting back against BDS”. >>> Click here for video <<<
Even though BDS is increasingly supported by progressive Israelis and members of the Jewish community (who are critical of Israel's illegal occupation and apartheid policies) Clinton has tried to falsely suggest that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is anti-Semitic.
Israel's policies against the indigenous Palestinians (Muslim, Christians and others) has been compared to Apartheid South Africa by anti-apartheid icons including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, John Dugard, Ahmed Kathrada, Winnie Mandela, Denis Goldberg and others. However, last year, in a public letter to Haim Saban (USA Democratic Party mega donor, Hollywood mogul, and pro-Israeli lobbyist) Clinton attacked the BDS movement and added that: "I am also very concerned by the attempts to compare Israel to South African Apartheid" (Click here to read Hillary Clinton's letter to pro-Israeli millionaire Haim Saban).
