Viciously anti-Israel, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement was established in 2005 by pro-Palestinian activists who sought to delegitimize the state of Israel.
However, the infamous movement never outright states its true intentions. Instead, BDS leaders influence their followers with a clever cover-up: they will non-violently boycott Israel, which they claim is in serious violations of international law, until the Jewish state ends its deathly aggression against Palestinians and ceases “occupying” Palestinian land.
The group even goes so far as to boldly cry “apartheid” when referring to Israeli policy regarding the Palestinian population in its entirety.
Regardless of the blatant mistruths they use to hide their true agenda, BDS propaganda has one mission: to castigate the Jewish state and give it an evil reputation internationally, an objective made much easier when its supporters include academics, celebrities, religious groups, political parties, trade unions, and even a small percentage of Israeli citizens.
Despite the endless hours and dollars BDS activists spend to accomplish their work, fortunately for Israel there are also groups who work tirelessly to fight the movement, exposing their true intentions.
One Christian organization, Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), seeks to “educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel.” They do so by “utilizing the powerful medium of documentary films,” according to the mission statement on their website.
Their latest documentary project, entitled Hating Israel: In Search of the Truth Behind BDS, is true to its name. PJTN’s unique methods of exposing the BDS lies make for an educational, enlightening and even enjoyable experience. This is due in part to their seemingly unusual personality choice to lead the exposé: comedian Brad Stine.
According to PJTN President and Hating Israel Producer, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Stine was hand picked to “expose the lies and smears expressed by [BDS] in its crusade against Israel’s right to exist…that would be hilarious if they weren’t so damaging.”
Said Stine in Hating Israel’s trailer: “I don’t know a lot about Israel, yet I have a connection to it based on my faith and I feel like I have a biblical obligation to understand (the truth) and even an obligation to defend [Israel].”
This biblical obligation is not just a feeling. In fact, the prophet Isaiah emphasized the importance of fighting those who slander Israel, saying, “I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, they shall never hold their peace day nor night: ‘Ye that are the LORD’S remembrancers, take ye no rest.” (Isaiah 62:6)
PJTN and its steadfast campaign to expose the anti-Israel movement which ultimately seeks to completely destroy the Jewish state are no doubt the watchmen to whom the prophet was referring.
In order to carry out their mission as watchmen by defending Israel against the BDS lies, PJTN has opened a crowdfunding campaign, encouraging anyone who believes in their cause to aid in the fight and reveal the truth about Israel.
