Several individuals from 15 different Arab countries gather in London to combat the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement; They’re calling for unity throughout the Middle East between Israel and its surrounding countries; Ross: You represent the voices who say enough.

On November 19-20, 30 individuals from 15 Arab countries came together in London in an attempt to combat the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) movement. The BDS movement is an antisemitic agenda that has been gaining speed throughout the world (especially in the last few years), wherein people and governments around the world will sympathize with the Palestinian state, boycotting, divesting, and sanctioning the Jewish state. This movement has even gained access to American college campuses-and worse, churches.

At the conclusion of this two-day conference in London, the group took on the title of the Arab Council for Regional Integration. Their goal is to better integrate nations throughout the Middle East, especially when it comes to their relationship with the Jewish state of Israel. There were some notable attendees at this conference, one of them being the former Kuwaiti Minister of Information, Sami Abdul-Latif Al-Nisf, who made a profound confession, stating, “It is a mistake to insist on Israel’s being a racist apartheid state when it clearly is not.”

This gathering was commended by Washington, as US Ambassador Dennis Ross spoke to the council via video call and stated, “You represent the voices who say enough. The more voices like yours who are prepared to speak out, the more you will build your voice in talking with Israel, and the more you will influence Israel’s leaders. You represent a ray of hope: it is a courageous endeavor, but also the right endeavor, and I am inspired by your example. You know you are on the right path. In fact, the event was even sponsored by the Center for Peace Communications (CPC), a US-based entity. Interestingly enough, they define themselves as “a group of Americans who believe that security and prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa require peace between peoples.” To the one who knows their Bible, it’s these exact regions that are going to inevitably invade Israel in the future.
