Nas Daily is a hugely popular Facebook video producer who is turning into a video content trainer. He is famous for doing a one minute video a day for 1000 days.

His real name is Nuseir Yassin and he is an Arab Israeli - he calls himself a Palestinian Israeli.

He has lots of charisma and charm, and many of his videos have more than a million views.

But last month BDS targeted him:

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has called for a boycott of Palestinian-Israeli blogger Nas Daily and his search for 80 new Arab content creators, claiming that the influencer's training programme is a cover for normalisation with Israel.

Nuseir Yassin, better known by his Facebook name Nas Daily, has amassed nearly eight million followers on Facebook, over two million on Instagram and 1.6 million on YouTube since he started creating one-minute video clips in 2016. 

Last month, he launched The Next Nas Daily, a paid opportunity for 80 Arabic language content creators to take part in a six-month training programme run by the Nas Academy, which offers classroom and online courses teaching skills such as shooting video, editing and storytelling.

“We want to make the Middle East more accessible and understood by the world and we need YOU to make that happen,” the website states.

On Monday, the BDS movement posted a statement calling on “content creators and influencers in the Arab region to boycott the upcoming Nas Daily programme, which aims to implicate them in normalising relations with Israel and cover up its crime”. 
Nas is not political at all. Here is has an uncharacteristically anguished video where Haredi Jews in Jerusalem say that all Arabs are terrorists, but then he speaks with some religious Jewish girls who are fans of his.

He wants Jews and Arabs to be treated like human beings - and that is the reason BDS doesn't like him. The idea that an Arab Israeli looks at Israeli Jews as anything but subhuman makes them crazy.

Here are the specific things Nuseir said that enrages the BDSers:

In a one-minute explanation of the creation of Israel in 1948, he said: “Some Palestinians left, some got killed and some stayed in their land. My people stayed.” 

That is pretty accurate. 

He went on to explain that he had chosen to accept the borders of Israel and Palestine and “move on”, because “in life there are better and bigger things to focus on than the name of a piece of land”.

That is fairly sane. 

In a separate video, posted a day after 58 Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli forces in Gaza, Yassin stated: “If you stand with one side and one side only, you are wrong, because it's not black or white.” 

That is self-evident. 

“I can name a hundred things we as Palestinians (and Arabs like in Egypt and Jordan) did wrong in the past 70 years, and the same goes to Israel. Once you realize every side is to blame, you really can't take sides.” 

This is what BDS is deranged over.

Strategically, this is incredibly stupid on BDS' part. If someone is a fan, they aren't going to stop being a fan because of what BDS says. A charismatic Arab who wants peace with Jews is certainly more appealing than terror-supporting BDSers who prefer unending war. 

It seems like the UAE accords has really damaged the fragile BDS brains.  

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
