Pro-Palestinian and pro-BDS social media activists were very happy to see the hip-hop group DAM announce their tour of England next week.

But what they don’t mention is that DAM is based out of Lod, Israel.

They might identify as Palestinian, but they are Israeli. They might have songs that are anti-Israel, but they pay Israeli taxes. They started their career singing in Hebrew and playing in Tel Aviv clubs. Their first anti-Israel song was written after one of their friends was killed in a shooting — even though he was killed by an Arab. Their Internet domain is registered in Israel.

By any definition, they are an Israeli hip-hop group that now sings in Arabic.

But BDS isn’t boycotting this Israeli band. No, the “woke” people behind BDS only boycott “Israeli” artists when they are Jewish.

If DAM would bring in a leftist anti-Israel Israeli Jew to sing with them, they might lose every gig in England because of protests.

BDS is pure Jew-hatred, dressed up as “anti-Zionism.”
