Ken Loach’s claim in The Independent that there are apartheid-style, “racially segregated roads” in the West Bank is an outright lie, and we encourage you to lodge a complaint at the Indy using this online form.
How many people spreading Holocaust denial material would you expect to find in a group who claim to be “anti-racist”?
As is often the case with many pro-BDS polemics, the justification offered by British director Ken Loach to politically, economically and culturally isolate Israel – and only Israel – included distortions and at least one outright lie: that there are “racially segregated roads” in the West Bank.
As we’ve demonstrated each month in our ongoing series of posts documenting Israeli successes, the economic impact of the campaign to boycott Israel is nearly non-existent. Moreover, in nearly every arena (political, cultural and economic), BDS is failing miserably at its stated aim of internationally isolating the Jewish state.
