Boycott Divestment Sanctions

gg
BDS eventually worked on South Africa. The indigenous people were supressed by the white Europeans who had gradually taken over the country from about 1650. The whites ruled over the blacks and eventually brought about apartheid. In the 1980s, the anti-apartheid movements in the United States and Europe were gaining support for boycotts against South Africa, and in the end the west helped end apartheid.

The suppression of the Palestinians has come to a very dire situation. They are oppressed, marginalised and treated as second class citizens. Segregated roads, buses, etc.
So why is it that if the same pressure is put on Israel to end its oppression of the Palestinians that it is labelled anti-Semite? Surely there are many similarities between South Africa and Israel. But instead of western countries supporting the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement they are now trying to make it illegal to criticise Israel.

Just this last week in France a woman was arrested for wearing a T-shirt printed with words ‘Boycott Apartheid Israel’ Why is Israel protected above all other countries?

Also Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef said this last weekend that it is recommended in the Torah to kill the Palestinians.

If Israel ever manages to completely annihilate the Palestinians, will the western governments still not say a word against Israel?
