Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic Party’s 2016 nomination for President, today called for a bipartisan campaign against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and criticized  “attempts to compare Israel to South African apartheid.”

In a letter to Haim Saban, a Los Angeles businessman and major Democratic Party donor, Clinton expressed “alarm” over the BDS movement, and wrote that “we need to make countering BDS a priority. From Congress and state legislatures to boardrooms and classrooms, we need to engage all people of good faith, regardless of their political persuasions or their views on policy specifics, in explaining why the BDS campaign is counterproductive to the pursuit of peace.””
