Lapid to US Jewry: Help us fight BDS

Israel needs Diaspora Jewry in the fight against delegitimization, Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid said Saturday in New York.

"This is not about policies, or about the settlements, or about the peace process, this is classic anti-Semitism in a modern disguise," Lapid said of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, addressing Manhattan’s Park Avenue Synagogue a day before his planned speech to The Jerusalem Post Conference.

"The situation is getting worse. The tide is turning and either we turn it back now or it will sweep over us," he warned.
