The leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party has criticized the peaceful movement for Palestinian human rights, (BDS) without mentioning any of Israel’s crimes. This act has angered Palestinian activists from “Vpalestine” team and pro-Palestine activists as well, so they commented on his tweet blaming him for his disgraceful position.
Here are some of their comments:
It's really disappointing to hear that you have opposed BDS which is a movement that seeks freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people.
It would be great if you reconsider your position and stand with the oppressed, not the oppressors.#BoycottIsrael #BDS

Instead of attacking the BDS movement, you should've asked Israel to respect the international law.

It is an honest movement. Boycott Israel because it is committing heinous crimes in Palestine. Shame on you, you are talking about BDS this way
