(BREITBART) -- Saeb Erekat, the Palestinians’ chief negotiator and a global leader in the effort to boycott Israel, is reported to be on a waiting list for a lung transplant in Israel.
Israel’s Ynetnews reports that Erekat suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and “is on the waiting list for a lung transplant in Israel or the United States.” Erect, 62, has reportedly already begun medical treatment in Israel, but his condition is so bad that he will need a lung transplant to survive.
The irony is rich. Erekat is one of the leading proponents of the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement, which seeks to isolate Israel internationally. BDS hopes that treating Israel like apartheid South Africa will force it to make concessions at the negotiating table — or, like the former South African regime, to collapse. On campuses throughout the U.S., and in legislatures across Europe, BDS advocates inveigh against any connections with Israel.
