The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] movement against the “Israeli” entity will only fulfill its goals when the “Zionist regime” is no longer there, BDS founder Omar Barghouti said.

In a recent interview for the Gazan Voice podcast, recorded on May 21, Barghouti asserted that should the demands of the movement be fulfilled, and should Palestinian refugees return to occupied Palestine, little will be left of today's “Israeli” entity.

“If the refugees return to their homes as the BDS movement calls for, if we bring an end to ‘Israel’s’ apartheid regime ... what will be left of the Zionist regime?” he mused, as cited by the Jewish News Syndicate on Monday.

This endgame, the downfall of the “Israeli” entity as a Zionist “state”, would also work to bring down the two-state solution, Barghouti appeared to say, adding “what will the two states be based on?”

“There will be two states: one democratic for all its citizens here [Palestine] and one democratic for all its citizens there [the ‘Israeli’ entity],” he asserted, adding that “the Palestinian minority will become a Palestinian majority of what is today called ‘Israel’.”

On its official website, the movement, with its headquarters in Ramallah, says its goal is “to pressure ‘Israel’ to comply with international law,” describing itself as “an inclusive, anti-racist human rights movement” opposed to all forms of discrimination, including anti-Semitism.
