International entertainers of every color and creed are besieged by pressure to boycott Israel with an antisemitic smear tactic that spans the globe. Behind it all is the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, an intimidation network masquerading as a human rights movement. In her book Artists Under Fire, industry insider and activist Lana Melman exposes the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement's strategy of using celebrities to advance its agenda.
She argues that BDS is a form of antisemitism and that advocates are using celebrities to silence Israel's supporters and to isolate the country. Melman specifically calls out Roger Waters, the co-founder of Pink Floyd, who has been a vocal supporter of BDS. She argues that Waters and other BDS supporters are using their fame to mislead the public about Israel and to promote a false narrative about the conflict. Melman also provides a step-by-step action plan for Israel's supporters to take on BDS. She encourages them to speak out against the movement and to educate their friends and family about the truth about Israel. Melman's book is a powerful indictment of BDS and its supporters. It is a must-read for anyone who cares about fighting antisemitism and protecting Israel's right to exist.
