Letter writer Michael Hoicowitz appears well-intentioned, but misinformed when it comes to the purpose of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, saying BDS is not about policy, but decency. (“BDS not about policy, but decency,” July 26)
Omar Barghouti, the co-founder of BDS, has said the sole purpose of BDS is the euthanasia of Israel. A student of history, Barghouti knows full well that the Nazi T4 Euthanasia Program was the foundation of the Final Solution of the Jews as enacted in the Wannsee Protocol in January 1942. His use of the word euthanasia leaves no doubt he co-founded BDS to continue the anti-Semitic eliminationist mission formalized by Reinhard Heydrich and Adolf Eichmann at the Wannsee Conference. Decency is not a word one associates with Heydrich, Eichmann or Barghout, notwithstanding Hoicowitz’s wishful thinking.
