Too funny. From Al Monitor:

The boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is upset at a Hamas leader for meeting with the Moroccan prime minister due to Morocco having relations with Israel.

BDS released an Arabic-language statement on Tuesday to “denounce” Hamas’ political head, Ismail Haniyeh, for meeting with Moroccan Prime Minister Saadeddine Othmani. The meeting took place last week during Haniyeh’s trip to Morocco, during which he also met with Islamist and opposition parties.

“We strongly condemn Haniyeh’s meeting with the Moroccan prime minister, which betrays our people and furthers normalization with the occupation and its continuing crimes,” BDS said in the statement.

Yes, BDS is criticizing Hamas for not adhering to the BDS standards.

Putting it another way, if Hamas isn't adhering to BDS, then no one is.  

BDS' statement went further:
The Palestinian National Committee for the Boycott of Israel denounces the meeting of the Head of the Political Bureau of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, with Saad Eddine El Othmani, Prime Minister of Morocco and the signatory to the agreement of normalization and betrayal with Israel.  

At a time when we salute the brotherly Moroccan people for standing against normalization and with the cause of Palestine, its central cause, we strongly condemn Haniyeh's meeting with the Moroccan prime minister, which betrays our people and is implicated in normalization with the occupation and its continuing crimes. With the recent Israeli massacre against our people in the besieged Gaza Strip, with the systematic ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem, the Negev and the Jordan Valley, with the escalation of colonial settlement in all the occupied lands, and with the spread of manifestations of colonial fascism against our people in the lands of 1948, we cannot understand the attempt to legitimize this regime, which betrayed our people and their cause. 

The continuation of official Palestinian normalization, the most important manifestation of which is "security coordination" and the so-called "Committee for Communication with Israeli Society", and Haniyeh's participation in meetings with leaders of the Moroccan government legitimize normalization and provide fig leaves to justify or soften the normalization of other Arab regimes.
It sounds like BDS is pushing the secondary boycott - not to talk to anyone that has relations with Israel.  Israel has direct relations with 164 UN member states , only 28 don't recognize Israel (Algeria, Comoros, Djibouti, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brunei, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela.) 

Even Iran meets with countries that have relations with Israel. 

It looks like BDS has really gone off the rails.
