BDS claims to care about the Palestinian Arabs. They say that Israel is oppressing them. But are they actually helping the Arabs, or are they hurting them?
BDS Claims to Help – But the Truth?
The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement is not what they say they are. BDS claims to look out for the “suffering” Palestinian Arabs. But what is the truth? They actually only care about destroying Israel. BDS does not want the Jewish state to exist, even though it is benefitting Palestinian Arabs.
Just listen to the Palestinian Arabs themselves speak! They have successful jobs in Judea and Samaria. They can support their families. The Palestinian Arabs and their Jewish coworkers get along and work well together. And on top of that, if these Arabs were working for the Palestinian Authority (IF they even could get a job) they would be making such a minimal amount of money that they would not be able to live.
BDS Has Caused Harm to the Arabs
There was a factory in Judea and Samaria that was closed because of boycotters. Where did it relocate to? The other side of the so-called “green line.” And did that benefit the Palestinian Arabs? No! It harmed them! 250 of them lost their jobs, and those jobs were gained by Israelis. BDS is causing the Palestinian Arabs to lose out on a better life. They are not harming the Israeli economy or businesses – they are only giving Palestinian Arabs more hardship.
If the BDS Movement actually cared about helping the Palestinian Arabs, they would help the ones who are suffering under the Palestinian Authority and in Gaza under Hamas. Israel is definitely not the cause of their suffering. Israel is their only hope!
