Anti-Israel Propaganda Fail: Don’t Mention the War, Ehh Boycott, Edition

On March 20th, the San Francisco Chapter of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), a rabidly anti-Israel group who support BDS, hosted a webinar titled Teach-In: Palestine & BDS 101.

One of the speakers was Nadya Tannous, from the terror-supporting Palestinian Youth Movement, who spent much of her talk going over history (or at least her version of it). At one point she claimed the modern BDS movement is rooted in the 1930s boycotts of “Zionist companies”.

I thought I would point out how this is actually a good reminder as to how the so-called “Palestinian narrative” is contrived to the point that the very notion of a “Palestinian identity” is now the very opposite of what they are claiming.

In other words, Tannous connects the BDS movement to the 1930s boycotts against “Zionist companies”, but back then, they were referred to as “Arab boycotts” against “Palestinian goods.” Who she claims are the Palestinians were referred to simply as “Arabs”, while the “Zionists” (aka Jews) were referred to as Palestinians.

I am still going over the webinar, so there is a chance I may uncover some more “pearls.”
