JNS.org – Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement activists on Sunday vandalized and tore down advertising placards in the Paris Metro transit system inviting the public to an exhibit at Paris’s Louvre Museum titled “Open a Door to Israel.”

The exhibit — which also visited Rome and Warsaw — is a joint venture of the Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry and Israeli Foreign Ministry, showing Israel’s character as a nation of technology, innovation, culture, and rich history.

“The BDS activists have once again revealed their true faces, not human rights activists, but extremists and lawbreakers whose goal is to silence anyone who supports Israel,” Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said regarding the vandalism. “I will work so that the truth about Israel is heard in the world.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry filed a police complaint with the local police in Paris and took steps to replace the posters.
