In 2017, Boujenah's invitation to appear at a Tunisian cultural festival was protested by activists involved in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel. While Boujenah is not Israeli, he has spoken positively about Israel and said "I feel Jewish, French, Tunisian, Zionist and very close to Israel, as well as a supporter of a Palestinian state." The Tunisian Association for Support of Minorities defended Boujenah and accused boycott-promoters of anti-Semitism.
