British Justice Minister Michael Gove: The anti-Israel boycott BDS movement 'has adopted methods of apartheid against Israel by singling out the Jewish state for condemnation'


BERLIN (EJP)---‘’Modern anti-Semitism finds a home in far too many hearts,” said British Justice Minister Michael Gove at this week’s Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism Conference in Berlin.

Warning of a resurgence in anti-Semitism across Europe, he declared: ‘’There are those on the radical left whose purported sympathy for Arab suffering never results in campaigning against Middle East autocrats, but always in opposition to Israel.

There are those on the extreme right whose dark prejudices have never been extinguished and who now use opposition to globalisation to revive old anti-Semitic tropes.

And there are Islamist extremists who want to undermine what they see as the Zionist-crusader state and rail against Jewish influence everywhere.’’

‘’We need to stand against them all – and any who might be persuaded by their arguments – in solidarity with the Jewish people – and in solidarity with their right to national self-determination,’’ the Minister said.

He noted that 924 anti-Semitic attacks have been recorded in the UK in 2015, the third highest total on the record. “Anti-Semitism is not just the oldest hatred, it is also a virus which mutates.’’

He said the anti-Israel boycott BDS movement has adopted “methods of apartheid” against Israel by singling out the Jewish state for condemnation.

“Israel is dealing with a prejudiced, systematic attack against its existence,” he stressed.
