Cassar et al: ''Not anti-Semitic'' 3/12/13

Not anti-Semitic

IN two articles published on June 20 and August 2, you asserted that supporters of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement were "ugly, illiberal and frightening" and their "real target is the Jews".
You quoted someone asserting the BDS movement has a "racist, false narrative". In other words that such supporters were anti-Semitic.
We are prominent supporters of BDS in South Australia. We have been involved in boycotting the Seacret organisation in the Myer Centre in Adelaide for three years.
We reject the suggestion we are anti-Semitic. There is not a scintilla of racism in any of our bodies. What we are totally opposed to are the racist policies of the Israeli government directed at the people of Palestine.
