Zahr was behind the vicious BDS campaign that caused a Lebanese-American man to cancel the planned opening of a Burgerim restaurant in Dearborn (MI) in July, due to threats to his family. The burger chain was founded in Israel, but it is now headquartered in California. Nevertheless, Zahr insisted that Burgerim was built on "on stolen Palestinian land."
Moreover, as JNS's Jackson Richman points out, Zahr "not only endorses BDS, but also has a record of vicious attacks on Jews and Israelis. He refers to the latter as 'foreign colonialist settlers.' He has said that: 'Describing defenders of Israel as "scumbags," "pigs" and "bastards" is not necessary. "Zionist" is sufficiently insulting.'"
