ZUHDI JASSER (AMERICAN ISLAMIC FORUM FOR DEMOCRACY): I have to tell you, we have to understand first, what is the BDS movement? It's a anti-Semitic, basically genocidal movement that wants to see the end of Israel. So make no mistake, these are not moderates coming to visit Israel. Israel per its 2017 law has a right to prohibit activists, especially those who want to see it wiped off the map, from coming in.
JOHN LAYFIELD (LAYFIELD REPORT CEO): Zuhdi, listen, I'm not a fan of either of these two congresspeople, and I am a fan of Israel and our relationship with them. I think it's very strong, I think we need to keep that. We give them about $3.8 billion a year in support of their military. But I'm also not a fan of inflammatory rhetoric, and you said that Tlaib and Omar want Israel wiped off the face of the map. Do you really think -- are you really willing to say that on worldwide television that these two congresspeople want all of these Israeli people dead? That seems way across the line, sir.
JASSER: That's the support of her BDS. She just put forth a resolution in which they asked for support of the BDS movement, the boycott, divest, and sanctions movement calls for economic destruction of Israel so that no one can deal with it economically, and thus it dies of attrition. That is what they're calling for, and when they put on their agenda Palestine and they don't even mention Israel, those are two congresspeople activists who do not even believe in giving recognition to the state of Israel.
