Anti-BDS campaign blasts churches for 'classic anti-Semitism' - Yair Altman

Pro-Israel activists hang signs in World Council of Churches headquarters reading, "We know who you are, we know what your ideology is, now everyone will know" • The activists say they will continue to operate against church's anti-Semitic activities.

Pro-Israeli activists fighting the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement have taken their case to the World Council of Churches in a bid to expose what they say is the council's "classic anti-Semitism."

The World Council of Churches runs the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel. The activists entered the group's headquarters in Geneva and New York and placed signs at both sites reading, "We know who you are, we know what your ideology is, now everyone will know." 

The signs featured an image of a swastika that was photographed at one of the organization's events. 

One of the anti-BDS activists, speaking on condition of anonymity because hanging the signs at the group's buildings is illegal, told Israel Hayom that the goal was to expose the true motives behind the BDS movement. 

"These are not humanitarian activists who are boycotting Israel because of its activities in Judea and Samaria," he said. "That's just the lie that they are trying to sell. The truth is that this is a classic anti-Semitic ideology taken from the churches and mixed together with poisonous anti-Israel activity under the guise of human rights."

Another activist, who also asked to remain unidentified, said, "The World Council of Churches operates infrastructure inside Israel for anti-Israel activity, including tracking security forces and Israel Land Authority inspectors, supporting BDS, encouraging insubordination, spreading anti-Semitism and spreading false anti-Israel propaganda.

"Most of the activity is done by those posing as tourists and pilgrims, with tourist visas, which is in clear violation of the law. They need to understand that just as they know how to send activists to Israel from all over the world in order to work against Israel, we will operate against them in their home countries, in their offices, in their communities and in their homes."
