Kasich: Anti-Israel BDS Campaign ‘Is Hate Speech And It Cannot Be Tolerated’


Israel National News reports:

The United States should not interfere in the Israeli-Palestinian Authority (PA) peace efforts unless both sides invite it to participate, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich told Haaretz in an interview on Thursday.

…Asked if he fundamentally supports a diplomatic effort to address Iran’s nuclear program, he replied that a deal would not have happened under his watch. “I would never have done this because I don’t think there were any grounds on which to move forward.”

Kasich referred to the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement “has to stop.”

“That is nonsense, that is hate speech and it cannot be tolerated,” he told Haaretz. “I’d call people out on it. I’d call the leaders of the universities out on it. It’s garbage.”
