South African Anti-Israel BDS Protesters Sing “Shoot the Jew” instead of “Shoot the Boer”

We’ve discussed “Shoot the Boer” before. It’s one of those cheerful anti-Apartheid songs about shooting white people. Now it’s been narrowed down in its specificity by the BDS pro-terrorist crowd.
A concert at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in South Africa featuring Israeli saxophonist Daniel Zamir turned ugly Wednesday night when members of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) group began to sing, “dubula e juda” (“shoot the Jew”) as concert attendees were entering the music hall, according to Wits Vuvuzela, a paper affiliated with the university.
Wits Vuvuzela, reported that BDS protestors also chanted “there is no such thing as Israel” and “Israel apartheid.”
Despite the hateful rhetoric, Muhammed Desai, coordinator of BDS South Africa, rejected the notion that anti-Semitism played a role in the group’s protest, telling Wits Vuvuzela that “the whole idea [of] anti-Semitism is blown out of proportion.”
Clearly. I’m not sure what the right proportion for inciting the murder of Jews would be. Based on what most supporters of terrorism think, any criticism of that sort of thing is out of proportion.
