Hijacking and Steering BDS Movement


.

Alert:

.

“The BDS clearly changed its goal statement.”

“BDS has given up on the most essential and crucial  Palestinian principles.”


  • BDS mission statement which many organizations have endorsed in 2005 reads:

 

“1. Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall”

  • BDS mission statement of TODAY reads:

“1. Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967 and dismantling the Wall”

“Another clue comes from BDS Campaign founder Omar Barghouti‘s
book, Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for
Palestinian Rights. In the introduction, Barghouti describes the goal as
some Zionist right wing sources name George Soros and his Open Society Institute
as helping to fund BDS and some of its member organizations.  We know
that Soros is a “soft” Zionist and wants to preserve a Jewish state.  Is
his funding
or that of any other funding organizations a reason for the change in
the mission statement?  A full disclosure of funding sources and
amounts, as well as any and all conditions of funding is needed.  In
addition, the use of those funds, including line item amounts, is needed
in order to demonstrate accountability.”

======================================================

This is what happens when “pro-Palestinian” organizations gets dominated by “anti-Zionist” who foster unspoken sympathy with “Israeli” Jews. They can -and they do, dominatemanipulate and steer  in order to change the aims of Palestinians and of our pro-Palestinian organizations hoping to cause least harm and to protect the future of today’s mass murderers.

They influence Palestinian leadership, they select and promote those who are mailable and influenceble and campaign to smear
and kick out sincere Palestinians with clear vision and determination, those
who campaign for FULL Liberation of Palestine and reinstating FULL
rights of Palestinians
, including prosecution of war criminals, robbers
and child-murderers
.
 

Such serious changes in
the BDS mission statement, clearly  is NOT for the advantage of
Palestine nor the Palestinian, it can ONLY benefit the Zionist occupiers
(hence, I smell a rat, pro-Palestinian organizations have been
infiltrated ).

Any one who
claims to be a “friend of Palestine” need to be aware of what are they
campaigning for and who do they really support.

Introduction by Gabi Weber
Paul Larudee, the co-founder of the Free Palestine Movement and one of the leading Pro-Palestinian activists in America, posted the following text on the  Al Awda list. It seems as if BDS has given up on the most essential and crucial  Palestinian principles.

While BDS was initially committed to the opposition of colonisation of all Arab lands, the current BDS’ goal statement merely opposes only the colonisation of Arab lands occupied in 1967.

The BDS clearly changed its goal statement.

The following text raises serious questions. Perhaps one of our readers can provide the answers.

“Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that I must propose withdrawal of al-Awda
endorsement from the BDS Campaign led by the BNC until the change in its
mission statement has been corrected and until a public explanation is
provided for the reasons for the change as well as the procedure by
which the change was implemented.  A more transparent public explanation
of BNC finances is also recommended.

Obviously, this is not a proposal to stop boycott, divestment and
sanctions.  However, BDS actions and practices do not require
endorsement of a particular movement.  Everything that undermines the
racist Zionist state deserves our support.  Nevertheless, under no
circumstances can we support any statement or action that legitimates
such a state, which is the problem with the BNC-led BDS Campaign.

As I reported on July 10, the original BDS mission statement reads:

“1. Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall”

In fact, it still reads that way on one part of the website: http://www.bdsmovement.net/call.
Unfortunately, that part of the website is historical, and reports what
the original mission statement was when it was issued in 2005 (when
al-Awda endorsed it), and not what it is today, which is found at http://www.bdsmovement.net/bdsintro, which reads:

“1. Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967 and dismantling the Wall” (emphasis added)

When did this wording change?  By what procedure was it amended?
Were endorsers like al-Awda consulted or even notified about the
change?  What was the reason for the change?

1.  When did the wording change? 

Sorry, but I have no idea about this, and I doubt that anyone else
on this list does, either.  This is problematic.  How can a change of
this magnitude be made without the permission of its endorsers?  How
can endorsers be made to say something that they never endorsed?  This
is deception at its worst.

2.  By what procedure was the statement amended?

One would think that such a change would require a proposal to and
ratification by the governing committee of the BNC.  However, there is
no evidence that such a procedure was observed.  Lacking evidence to the
contrary, we must conclude that it was amended unilaterally by someone
with control over the website.

3.  Were endorsers like al-Awda consulted or even notified about the change?

Again, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, it appears that
the change in language was introduced in the most surreptitious way
possible, so as to avoid notice.  One is reminded of the way the British
territory of Gibraltar was enlarged by moving the boundary stones at
night.

4.  What was the reason for the change?

This is the most troubling part of the problem.  A clue may be found in the following video, posted by Gilad Atzmon:

Another clue comes from BDS Campaign founder Omar Barghouti‘s
book, Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for
Palestinian Rights. In the introduction, Barghouti describes the goal as
some Zionist right wing sources name George Soros and his Open Society Institute
as helping to fund BDS and some of its member organizations.  We know
that Soros is a “soft” Zionist and wants to preserve a Jewish state.  Is
his funding
or that of any other funding organizations a reason for the change in
the mission statement?  A full disclosure of funding sources and
amounts, as well as any and all conditions of funding is needed.  In
addition, the use of those funds, including line item amounts, is needed
in order to demonstrate accountability.

I again wish to express my sorrow at bringing these matters to your
attention.  I hope that my concerns are unjustified.  However, I also
hope that you will agree that this is an issue that must be addressed.

Paul Larudee”
