The Friedrich Ebert Foundation, which generates ideas and policies for the Social Democratic Party, a governing party in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government, was ready to present its Human Rights Award to the Women’s March USA on November 12. The award has now been rescinded.
Last week, the doctoral students associated with the foundation accused the Women’s March USA organizers of extreme antisemitism and support of the BDS campaign that specifically targets Israel.
“An organization that may support feminism, but discriminates against Jews and Zionists and denies Israel’s right to exist should not be honored by a democratic foundation that advocates diversity and speaks out against discrimination,” the students wrote in their letter.
AFSI applauds the doctoral students because they lead by example in affecting this important decision on behalf of the truth about Israel. We hope that more people, especially the younger generations, will follow their lead and stand for the truth about Israel.
