Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) participated on Sunday in a conference held by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in New York.
Speaking during the event, Shaked slammed the BDS movement, calling it “a new extension of terrorism.”
“BDS is the new face of terror. While in Gaza [terrorists] are digging underground tunnels into Israel, the BDS movement is digging tunnels to undermine the foundations and values of Israel. We have to stop these tunnels as well.”
“Supporters of the BDS movement,” Shaked added, “are attempting to smear our very right to exist. They refuse to accept our most natural, basic, and simple right – the existence of the State of Israel.
Regarding Islamic terror, Shaked argued that “No matter what mask terror is wearing, I am convinced of one simple truth: you cannot defeat the enemy unless you call it what it is.
That’s why I’m not afraid to do so. We are fighting Islamic extremism.”
