IJC Statement on German bank supporting BDS accounts
The Israeli-Jewish Congress (IJC) Executive Director Arsen Ostrovsky is quoted in this Jerusalem Post article about Germany’s ‘Bank for Social Economy’ maintaining accounting for BDS groups.
You can read full article here, with Arsen’s quote below:
BDS is an insidious, racist, anti-peace movement, designed solely to attack, vilify and delegitimize the Jewish state. It is the very manifestation of modern antisemitism. Accordingly, IJC believes that no financial institution should in any way be complicit in enabling BDS groups to operate accounts in order to spread this hate and fund the boycott of the Jewish state, most certainly not in Germany given its unique history. We wholly support the Jewish community of Germany in voicing our unequivocal call on the bank to close the BDS accounts.”
