Liberman: Jews Shouldn’t Donate to Anti-Zionist Causes

Avigdor Lieberman

Arutz Sheva reports: Defense Minister and Yisrael Beytenu Chairman Avigdor Liberman met today with Michael Gross, a British Jewish philanthropist, who canceled a significant donation to Ben Gurion University because of it hosted a conference supporting BDS organizations.

Mr. Gross told the minister that “battling BDS should begin in Israel. It cannot be that Israeli universities which receive funding from the state provide a platform for those acting against Israel worldwide and supporting BDS.”

Defense Minister Liberman agreed that much of the support for the BDS movement comes from Jews and Israelis, and spoke about the activities, legislative and otherwise, that the Yisrael Beytenu party has undertaken against those who delegitimize Israel.

Defense Minister Liberman declared that all Jewish philanthropists should act in the same manner and refrain from supporting anti-Zionist activities that encourage BDS and the delegitimization of Israel.
