Yesh Atid Faction leader Yair Lapid ripped the BDS movement, charging in a video released by the StandWithUs Israel advocacy organization that they are aiding terrorism, and calling them "anti-Semites sponsored with oil money."

BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) is an anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist organization which aims to de-legitimize Israel.

"Israel has offered the Palestinians a country of their own three times in the last 15 years," Lapid said. "We are a peace loving nation. All we want is a settlement that will let us live in peace."

Lapid said that Israel was established for the Jews to defend themselves, and not to end Jew hatred. "I know this is not politically correct, but Israel was not designed to terminate anti-Semitism," he acknowledged. "It was established so we can say 'screw you', that we are not taking orders from them anymore.'
