Photo: REUTERS/Stephen Farrell/File Photo. – The official Twitter account of the Palestinian BDS National Committee, which calls itself the “Palestinian leadership of the global Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement,” shared an image with its 237,800 followers, which it referred to as Palestinian victims of the “Tantura massacre.”Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Amichai Chikli stated that the “racist” handle had broken a Guinness record, using “a picture from the German concentration camp of Nordhausen to lie about a fictional massacre during Israel’s War of Independence.”

“Holocaust distortion, appropriation and denial, further victimizing Jewish people,” he added. “Pure evil.”

The Palestinian Academy for Science & Technology calls on @EMBO to relocate workshops from apartheid Israel, including the one at the site of the Tantura massacre.

“EMBO has a moral obligation to end its complicity in whitewashing Israel’s crimes.”
