Is BDS Trying to Start Another Holocaust?

Washington Free Beacon reported that, "the European Union is poised to mandate that Israeli products made in contested territories carry consumer warning labels, a decision that could trigger American anti-boycott laws and open up what legal experts describe as a "Pandora's box" of litigation."

What is eerily reminiscent of the precursors that led up to the Holocaust, where Jewish products were boycotted as well as Jewish businesses, the Boycott Diversity Sanction movement led by the Palestinians is taking hold in Europe following this decision.

Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. This is the sentiment that several freshmen members of the House of Representatives support. It basically moves to de-legitimize the State of Israel and lays claim that Israel is an apartheid state.

Ilhan Omar supports the BDS movement, and proposed a resolution supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

"U.S. Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has signed onto Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) resolution that supports the anti-Israel BDS movement."

"The legal dispute first began after France passed a law mandating that products made in the West Bank territory of Israel be labeled as coming from an “Israeli colony,” a label not applied to any other products across the globe."

According to reports: "The Advocate General of the European Court of Justice recently issued non-binding opinion arguing that EU law requires Israeli-made products to be labeled as coming from "settlements" and "Israeli colonies."

Israel is being singled out as the aggressor over their stance on the Palestinian territories in the region, and has on multiple times agreed to make peace with their neighbors, however, the Palestinian's have refused such peace efforts.
