The British National Union of Students that on Tuesday voted to boycott Israel, voted against boycotting Islamic State less than a year ago, saying all there is to say about the BDS movement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday.

“ISIS tramples human rights to the dust. It burns people alive in cages and the national student groups in Britain refuse to boycott ISIS and have boycotted Israel,” Netanyahu said at the start of a meeting with new Canadian Foreign Minster Rob Nicholson.

At the same time, he said, in the UN, Turkey and Iran voted in favor of recognizing as an NGO a group linked to Hamas which fires missiles on Israeli cities, while hiding behind civilians. “It tells you about international hypocrisy a lot,” he said.

Netanyahu said he was stressing these points to underline Canada's strong and clear opposition to “these distortions of truth and distortions of justice.” He added that Israel feels it has “no better friend than Canada.”
