Combat Antisemitism Movement wants nations to ban anti-Israel chant


Share post:


Shillong, October 26: The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) has urged domestic and global leaders to follow Austria’s lead in banning the anti-Israel “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” chant.

The nonprofit welcomed Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer’s announcement on Wednesday that the chant will be considered as a murder threat and prosecuted as a criminal offence.

“Finally. For years, this clear call for the genocide of all Jews in Israel has been treated as legitimate political discourse. However, after Hamas revealed its true intentions to the world on October 7, with its frenzied slaughter of 1,400 Israeli men, women, and children of all ages just because they lived in the Jewish state, the world can no longer be indifferent to such expressions of exterminationist hatred,” CAM CEO Sacha Roytman Dratwa said.

“I urge other national and local leaders across the globe to follow Chancellor Nehammer’s lead and take this important step to protect Jewish communities from the violent incitement that we have seen an explosion of over the past two and half weeks.”

Chancellor Nehammer made the announcement during a wartime solidarity visit to Israel on Wednesday. (IANS)
