Steinitz at Jpost conference: BDS against Israel like hanging of yellow stars on Jews in WWII

National Infrastructure Minister Yuval Steinitz said at the Jerusalem Post Annual Conference Sunday that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel is reminiscent of the racism faced by Jews prior to WWII and the Holocaust.

Steinitz said that those who call to boycott Israel are racists and remind him of those who forced Jews to wear yellow Stars of David to announce their presence in Germany prior to WWII.

"This is anti-Semitism, even though people disguise it as being solely against Israel," Steinitz said during a a question and answer session with Jerusalem Post Editor-in-Chief Steve Linde.
