Answers to Quora Questions by Yair Davidiy
Is the BDS movement a reaction to Israel's mere status as a Jewish state or to the conduct of the Israeli government?
The BDS is against Jewish existence.
The behavior of the Israeli government has little if anything to do with it.
The Arabs are much worse to their own kind than Israel ever was to them.
Take the Christians for instance,
In Israel and the Palestinian areas there are Christians who are also Arabs.
Christians in the Arab world are Roman Catholics or Greek Orthodox or Maronite.
Others belong to one or other of the Protestant groups.
In 1990, Christians made up a majority of the residents of Bethlehem;
today they make up only about 15%.
Up until the 1990s Bethlehem had been ruled by Israel.
After that the Palestinians took over.
Why are Palestinian Christians Fleeing?
Palestinian Treatment of Christian Arabs
Where Israel has control the Christian Arab population increases.
Where the Palestinians (of Ramallah or Gaza) rule the Christians leave.
Christians are forced out by acts of terror, murder, sexual molestation, robbery, harassment, etc.
They leave Arab areas.
The world does not care about them.
They may no longer care that much about themselves.
They just leave.
Those who stay in some cases support Israel. Others work for the Palestinian cause.
Hatred of the Jews seems to have a kind of religious appeal about it.
That explains the BDS movement.
Being physical and/or spiritual descendants of Nazis and Judeophobes the BDS does what it can to hurt Jews.
The Palestinians are an excuse.
If the Palestinians disappeared tomorrow morning by the afternoon another excuse would already be there.
