From BDS to Murder: a French perspective by Noam Ohana, The Times of Israel, October 19, 2016

We are well aware of the fact that not all BDS activists deny the right of Israel to exist; and not all of those who refuse the idea of a Jewish State are anti-Semites; and not all of those who are anti-Semites support the use of terror; and not all of those who support terrorism are willing to act on it. But we also know that all of those who killed French Jews were initially driven by an obsessive anti-Israel hatred that they could not contain, and that spilled over in a Jewish school and in a kosher supermarket. [….] You can take our word for it, extreme anti-Israel rhetoric always leads to the killing of Jews.

Israel, which unfortunately has had a great deal of experience with terrorist violence, has much to offer Europe in its own confrontation with Islamist terror. Once Europe has internalized the reality that it is fighting a war, Israel can advise it regarding strategies like effective intelligence collection, disruption of enemy money supply, and interference with enemy access to the internet.
