A glimmer of light in the anti-Semitic darkness

May 21, 2019 by

by Karen Harradine, The Conservative Woman: IN THE struggle against anti-Semitism, good news is as rare as sighting the Loch Ness monster. When it does happen it’s a cause for celebration and a deep sigh of relief, before carrying on fighting the good fight. On Friday the German Parliament passed a motion denouncing the Boycott Disinvest Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. BDS is built on the lie that Israel is an apartheid state.
