At an event sponsored by the Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation — which supports the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS), Johnson said, “There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming…
“It has come to the point that occupation, with highways that cut through Palestinian land, with walls that go up, with the inability or the restriction, with the illegality of Palestinians being able to travel on those roads and those roads cutting off Palestinian neighborhoods from each other,” he continued. “We’ve gotten to the point where the thought of a Palestinian homeland gets further and further removed from reality.”
Johnson also falsely stated that “Jewish people” frequently steal land and property from Palestinians.
“You see one home after another being appropriated by Jewish people who come in to claim that land just because somebody did not spend the night there,” Johnson said. “The home their [Palestinian] ancestors lived in for generations becomes an Israeli home and a flag goes up.”
Johnson also notoriously expressed concern once in a congressional hearing that our Marine buildup on Guam would cause the island to tip over and capsize.
