In an interview with the Israeli site nrg on Wednesday, Belgian-Jewish stage actress Noemi Schlosser recounted immigrating to Israel after her career in Europe was destroyed by BDS.

Schlosser said she had enjoyed success in Belgium and international acclaim until she was targeted by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement for her pro-Israel stance during Operation Protective Edge — last summer’s war against Hamas in Gaza. She described watching the theaters where she performed go from packed to nearly empty over a short period of time.

This, she said, spurred her to pack up and move to Israel, which has taken her career on a new and unexpected path. For example, she said, her months of experiencing life in Israel as an immigrant and a single woman led her to create “Date Me in TLV,” a show which premiered yesterday (Nov. 25) in Israeli theaters.

  • I am a Belgian. I am so ashamed of this, and I am afraid too. So a Belgian has been forced to become a refugee in what? The last democracy in the world? She sided for the democracy against genocidal radicalism, and she was obliged to run away ???
    I am not afraid, I am petrified.

    History tells a tale, first the germans came through Poland and killed all the royals, the aristocrates, the military officers and rich business owners, and impregnated the women then the russians came through and replaced all the top echelon with Russians who had been trained to speak polish, and impregnated the women…this is poland today…no original politician, officer, business owner, royals, aristrocrates…just polish speaking Russians, who were never polish to begin with…oh and those who fled, but decided to return after the war

    BDS = Bad Deformed Stray
    It’s self destructive

  • But is this not what being Jewish is all about,resilience? Otherwise would you not be extinct? So, noli nothis permittere te terere .( Illegitimi non carborundum)

    • R.C.

      Your comment was a non sequitur. The only reason Jewry are not, as your wrote ‘extinct’–is because God has preserved them.

    this is the factual status of europe. It is difficult to empathize with a collective who continues to stalk its Jews even after they leave, stalking them back to their homeland and funding honor killer orgs to do the dirty work they used to do themselves. The decades of chaos, suffering and strife ahead of the europeans is related to their Jew stalking.

  • David DeMello

    Belgium has some very serious existential problems that will make BDS a distraction.

  • If bds boycotts pro Israel, we should boycott whoever bds supports

    • Simone Miller

      If Israel is boycotted, we must return the favor. I agree totally with you. Our $$$ can be as powerful bds.
