There are four reasons to support the #BDS movement
You are a radical Islamist.
You support radical Islamic goals
You are an antisemite
Your are really, really stupid

A thread:
Asking if you support the boycott of Israel is *exactly* like asking if you support the destruction of Israel, only it is deliberately worded differently.

BDS talks about 'occupation' and 'settlements' but ONLY 1 of the 3 BDS aims has anything to do with the West Bank / Gaza.
One of the BDS aims even tries to impose on Israel's own democracy - talking about Israeli citizens, not 'occupied Palestinians'. It's the one they talk about the least because it is the most insidious.
Supporting BDS is like joining a medieval lynch mob. YOU don't get to decide how much damage is done or when it stops. Only the radicals holding the burning torches at the front get to decide that.
BDS was created when the violent radical Islamic groups realised they couldn't destroy Israel without your help - so they created a movement designed to look pretty - but one which delivers EXACTLY what Hamas and Hezbollah want.
In a world which saw Genocide in Rwanda and Darfur and that sees Yazidis and Rohingya slaughtered and Muslims placed into concentration camps in China - *NOBODY* has a right to tell Jewish people they shouldn't have their own state to protect themselves.
You can and do have every right to criticise Israel and support the Palestinians, You want the Palestinians to have a state? Great, so do I - but nobody has a right to demand the Jews shouldn't have that basic level of freedom and independence as well.
There are nine million Israeli citizens. All inside a free and democratic nation. They all vote and everyone, Jew, Arab, Bedouin, Druse - all live in a nation more free than any other in the region. The Islamists only target it because it has a Jewish majority.
So remember - when those like @GMB giving legitimising air to this question:

'do you support the destruction of Israel'?

They feed hate and ignorance and play into the hands of radical Islamists and antisemites

So don't be really really stupid - don't be like GMB.
