The Israeli Strategic Affairs Ministry has identified 42 anti-Israel organizations that have ties to Islamic terror groups.

Israel Hayom reports that the Strategic Affairs Ministry has spent two years determining the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ (BDS) “network of hatred” that features operatives from Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) taking active roles in BDS organizations.

For instance, Al Haq, which bills itself as a human rights organization, is run by Shawan Jabarin, who was imprisoned in Israel for serving as a PFLP terrorist. The Palestinian Return Center, Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Friends of Al-Aqsa all have members that participated in the 2010 Gaza flotilla.

The 42 organizations are all under the umbrella of the BDS National Committee.

This comes on the heels of an exposé from Tablet explaining that The U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the umbrella of the American BDS movement, donates money to the BDS National Committee, which has financial ties to Hamas, PFLP and Islamic Jihad.

“Terrorist organizations and the BDS movement have never been ‎closer, ideologically and operationally,” Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said at a recent conference. “I will continue to lead a ‎counterattack against the perpetrators of the anti-Semitic hate ‎campaign emanating from Gaza and Ramallah.”
