Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks Monday, 17 February 2014, to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations 40th Annual Leadership Mission (http://www.
followed as have most of Netanyahu’s recent public talks with Iran, with security and peace as major themes.
But there was something new added, as shown in this excerpt from PM Netanyahu’s remarks to the Conference of Presidents, all leaders from North America:
“I think the most eerie thing, the most disgraceful thing is to have people on the soil of Europe talking about the boycott of Jews. I think that’s an outrage, but that is something that we’re re-encountering. In the past, anti-Semites boycotted Jewish businesses and today they call for the boycott of the Jewish state. And by the way, only the Jewish state. Now, don’t take my word for it. The founders of the BDS movement make their goals perfectly clear. They want to see the end of the Jewish state. They’re quite explicit about it. And I think it’s important that the boycotters must be exposed for what they are. They’re classical anti-Semites in modern garb. And I think we have to fight them. It’s time to delegitimize the delegitimizers.”
Sitting next to Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice chairman of the Conference, the Prime Minister looked out to the crowd before he spoke.
