What company they keep. Hamas endorses BDS
Do you want to stand with Scarlett Johansson, for universal rights, and strong economic and cultural ties, or do you want to stand with the genocidal terror group Hamas?

Arab and Muslim states should take a firm stand towards any entity
that deals with the Israeli occupation as Europe has, Hamas said.
In a statement issued by the movement's press office, Hamas commented
on the acts of major European companies that boycotted Israeli
settlements and withdrew their investments from the illegal entities.
"We, in Hamas, appreciate and welcome these economic boycotts against
the Zionist occupation and we consider it a step in the right direction
towards pressuring the occupation to stop its settlement activities and
its Judaisation of the Palestinian land."
Hamas also expressed hope "that the European position expands to
become a public policy against the ongoing Zionist war which targets the
Palestinian people's land, heritage and identity." It called on the Arab and Muslim countries to "take a firm stand
toward any party that deals with the Zionist occupation", while
expressing disapproval of any interview, meeting or interaction with
Israel and Israeli leaders.
It also called on organisations, businesses and cultural, educational
and economic institutions in the world to declare their boycott of
Israel in order to pressure the occupation to stop its war on and
violation of Palestinian land.
A number of companies and official and non-governmental organisations
in Europe are now partaking in an economic boycott of the Israeli
occupation. They include Norway's Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG),
the Dutch pension fund (PGGM), the Danish Danske Bank, the Dutch water
company Fitness and the Irish Workers Organisation amongst others.
