Anti-Israel activists who belong to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) vandalized signs promoting an official Israeli exhibit in Paris on Sunday.

The incident took place just as the Carousel du Louvre was hosting a display staged by the Foreign Ministry titled “Open a Door to Israel.”

Gilad Erdan, the government minister who has been put in charge of coordinating the state’s response to BDS, released a statement reacting to the incident, saying: “BDS activists have once again shown their true colors. They are not human rights activists, but a group of extremist law-breakers whose goal is to silence anyone who supports Israel.”

“I will act to ensure that the truth about Israel is heard worldwide,” the minister said.
