Latest BDS fakery scandal

Adding to the growing list of BDS fakery and lies comes another scandal. Today across the London Underground network posters appeared promoting BDS sentimentology.

IMG-20160222-WA0003The first read ‘Why is BBC reporting biased in favour of Israel?’. It carried the hashtag #Israelapartheidweek. Israeli Apartheid Week campaign is most often focused on British university campuses. Indeed, it is the same one that led to the resignation of Alex Chalmers,  co-chair of the Oxford University Labour Club (OULC).

He resigned from office after the Club decided to endorse the Israeli Apartheid Week.

In his resignation statement he highlighted his concerns, alleging there were growing anti-Semitic tendencies within the OULC. Chalmers said, “The decision of the club to endorse a movement with a history of targetting (sic.) and harassing Jewish students and inviting antisemitic speakers to campuses, despite the concerns of Jewish students, illustrates how uneven and insincere much of the active membership is when it comes to liberation.”

IMG-20160222-WA0002The second had a picture of the Israeli security wall and read ‘Apartheid is great’ in reference to the Great Wall of China. It also carried the same hashtag.

While the posters were made to look exactly like any other London Underground poster the whole enterprise was shown to be a fake.

Transport for London confirmed the ads were unauthorised and will be taken down.

A spokesman said: “It is fly posting and therefore an act of vandalism which we take extremely seriously.

“Our staff and contractors are working to immediately remove any found on our network.”

Makes you wonder what they will get up to next?
