BDS rally

It’s bad enough a BDS rally at South Africa’s Witwatersrand University featured protesters chanting, “Shoot the Jew.” But Mohammed Desai, the head of South Africa’s BDS movement, poured more fuel to the fire when he told the student paper, the Wits Vuvuzela:

The coordinator of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), Muhammed Desai, said many African people in South Africa when using the word “Jews” meant it in the same way they would have during the eighties. “Just like you would say kill the Boer at funeral during the eighties it wasn’t about killing white people, it was used as a way of identifying with the apartheid regime”.

I don’t see how “Kill the Boer” is any less inciting than “Kill the Jew,” “Kill the black man,” or “Kill the Arab” in any context.
