    It's presented as mostly a left wing and Muslim thing, but there are a growing number of young liberal Jews who are fed up with Israel's government. There is a smaller element of conservatives who are low key getting fed up with Israel's nonsense, especially when they research the USS Liberty Attack, Dancing Israelis, Israel funding ISIS, Israel persecuting Christians, Israel doing harmful spying and selling our info to Red China and USSR in the past.

    So many Christians and conservatives are sadly influenced by Zionism, but some are beginning to wake up. I used to be real conservative, and when I came back from the army I learned how much I didn't trust Israel, who don't believe in God but do believe He gave them Palestine.

    If you want to reach out to Conservatives, leave out the Palestinian side of the conversation. That's a lost cause with conservatives. Talk about how they've hurt us in the past and have been in touch with communists in the past, funded our enemies and hurt local christians in their area.

    No it’s not.

    It’s all about numbers... 1,800,000,000 Muslims (With oil) vs 15,000,000 Jews (no oil)

    Hello Nate, 

    "Political correctness" being a term used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society (Wikipedia), is insufficient as a concept applied to discussing support for BDS. It is simply wrong to support such an organisation, whose policies are based in antisemitism (see below).

    The “Palestinian” Arab campaigning organization that seeks a boycott of Israel: “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” (BDS), relies on deceiving people though "Palestinian" Arab propaganda-falsehood against Israel.

    However, "Palestinian" Arab propaganda has the support of the Arab-dominated United Nations with its built-in pro-Palestinian bias, due to its block-vote of up to 56 Arab and additional Islamic-aligned countries, compared with Israel being one country; an anti-Israel bias which cannot easily be undone. Indeed, in votes on the Arab / Israel dispute, a two-thirds majority is often often invoked to prevent a U.N. vote passing in favor of Israel:

    https://news.un.org/en/story/2018/12/1027881

    Yet, due to the modern changes to how factual-information can be obtained that have become available with the Internet, people now have access to information that they can check, which debunks the previously highly-successful "Palestinian" Arab propaganda.

    "Palestinian" Arab propaganda relies primarily on the Arab-dominated United Nations which falsely-validates the lie of an Israeli “occupation”, by denying Jewish roots in their ancestral homeland of Israel; the Jews have unbroken presence in their homeland since before the Arabs arrived.

    The BDS boycott is antisemitic in nature, being an idea taken directly from the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses:

    - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    “The assault against the Jews began on April 1 [1933] with a boycott of Jewish businesses.”

    https://www.britannica.com/event/Holocaust

    - - - - End of extract - - - -

    Since “Palestinian” Arab propaganda against Israel is devoid of objective-verification, there is no honest basis for B.D.S. It is entirely political and simply a means to support the “Palestinian” Arab intention to destroy Israel and expel or murder the Jews. Supporting antisemitism IS antismitism.

    Can we compare the Israeli economic measures (aka “blockade”) on Gaza? The economic measures on Gaza are by both Egypt and Israel. In reality the Israeli economic measures are due to Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, being economic measures no different to those which any other country would take under such circumstances:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_rocket_a...

    Here you can see an example of distortion for "Palestinian" Arab propaganda purposes. Take a look also at the reactions of the many deceived because they did not require verification of the distorted-accusations, both created by their author and also then described by him as: “dehumanization”:

    https://twitter.com/iyad_elbaghdadi/status/1128975...

    For example, Palestinian-distortion propaganda claiming that Zionists say, using words same or similar: “The Palestinians are not a people.”

    Original verifiable-version using words same or similar to the following, is that:

    The “Palestinian” Arabs were opposed to being called a “People” until the 1960’s:

    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11401/palestini...

    "Palestinian" Arab propaganda replaces the history of Jewish presence in the Jewish People’s ancestral homeland of Israel, with a fake Arab history:

    http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=495

    Heading to article: "Palestinian Authority: Pursuing Peace, or Pushing Propaganda?

    The Palestinian Authority claims in English to being pursuing peace, but their Arabic tells a different story":

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/palestinian-authorit...

    Verifiable-facts are not “dehumanization”, while attempting to label them so, is deception-propaganda.

    The reader will also have noticed that the “Palestinian” Arabs and their typically anti-Semitic supporters label as:

    “Propaganda”, “Hasbara”, “Dehumanization”, “Subterfuge”, “Rant”, “Lies”, “Fake”, "Spam",

    any verifiable-argument or sources that the Palestinians seem Unable to answer and therefore also, Refuse to answer.

    The Palestinians do not (and cannot) “do”, objective-evidence.

    The "Palestinian" Arabs dropped the name "Arab" to prevent you understanding they arrived in the land of Israel as Arab-Migrant-Workers just prior to, and during the British Mandate:

    - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    "... most Arabs in British Mandate Palestine were migrant workers and descendants of the 1832-1947 wave of Arab/Muslim immigration from Egypt, the Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya, North Africa, Bosnia, India, Afghanistan, etc. While the British Mandate encouraged Arab immigration, it blocked Jewish immigration."

    Brief historical background:

    Using “Palestine” (the Roman-imposed rename) to refer to the land of Israel is misleading, as there has never been any indigenous sovereign state of “Palestine”. The only valid name for the land belongs to the Jewish indigenous sovereign states before the Re-establishment of Israel in 1948, which are “Israel” or “Judea”.

    The Jewish People are the indigenous people of their ancestral homeland of Israel with unbroken presence there since Biblical times:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_history_...

    The Jewish People have had an unbroken presence in their ancestral homeland of Israel since Biblical times, and also previous sovereign states in the land for example, map of the Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah (aka Judea) (including the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights), with its capital of (what is now East) Jerusalem; between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH:

    (Please see the source which I have put into the "Sources" area of this answer.(

    I hope this helps.
