BDS Leader Barghouti: “We’re Not Ashamed to Have Armed Resistance” – Noah Pollak
Omar Barghouti, a Palestinian leader of the BDS movement, has been barred entry to the U.S. In 2007, Barghouti founded the BDS National Committee, the leading group organizing and promoting BDS outside the U.S. The reason he was barred is because the group Barghouti runs includes five U.S.-designated terrorist organizations: Hamas, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Popular Front-General Command, the Palestine Liberation Front, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Barghouti himself promotes terrorism. Here is a video of Barghouti stating, “We’re not ashamed to have armed resistance [terrorism] as well as peaceful resistance.” Barghouti has stated his support for terrorism dozens of times. The writer is executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel. (Commentary)
