1922-2012 90 Years to first Arab racist anti-Jewish boycott

The current bigoted anti-Israel boycotts, are NOT related to any "policies." It began many years before Israel was re-established, in 1922. It was pushed mainly by the infamous Mufti Haj amin al-Husseini, who allied himself with Hitler later on.

A call went out in 1922 from the Fifth Arab Congress, meeting in Nablus, for all Arabs to boycott Jewish businesses; seven years later, the First Palestine Arab Women's Congress asked "every Arab to buy nothing from the Jews but land, and to sell them everything but land."
Other, similar calls went out in 1931 and 1933, and in 1936 a boycott of all Jewish products was proclaimed by Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti and spiritual leader of all Moslems. This was the forerunner of today's Arab Trade Boycott.
Terence Prittie, Walter Henry Nelson, Terence Prittie, The economic war against the Jews (Secker & Warburg, 1978, 269 pp.) p. 9

In March and April 1933, The Mufti, praised Nazi Germany's anti-Jewish treatment, especially the boycotts.

Current organizers of anti-Israel boycotts (like, BDS, Anti-Semitism's New Face," the movement to "isolate Israel as part of their program to destroy Israel", PHAS-Anti-Semitic Motifs in Anti-Israelism have been exposed, and as US offical says Yes, the Boycott of Israel Is Anti-Semitic. Demonizing unfairly, blatantly maliciously lying obessively about the victim Israel fighting off a constant existential threat since the 1920s and beyond, is bigotry, not "legitimate criticism.") 'market' their racism with the false cover of "anti-racism," and using the outrageous "apartheid slur," which was invented in 1961 by the Mufti's henchman Ahmad Ahukairy, who allied hismelf with Nazi groups in 1962 and is known for coining the genocide phrase 'throw the Jews into the sea,' in 1967, called Shukairy's slogan.
