Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna, bashed the anti-Semitic BDS movement, also noting the friendly ties between Catholics and Jews in Austria.

Schönborn, who is considered second-in-line to Pope Francis, told Arutz-7 in an interview that the Catholic Church is opposed to the prevalent European hostility towards the Jewish state and will stand up to the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) activists.

According to Schönborn, the attacks on Israel by the BDS movement are not only false, but also stupid.

Watch and listen to the encouraging remarks by this prominent Catholic leader!
