Act Now: Fight the Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions Movement Read & Share the SWC’s Newest Report

Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), this global movement is the tipping point of a war against Israel. It claims to want to bring Israel to the negotiating table but, in reality, it seeks to bring her to her knees by demonizing the Jewish State as a 21st Century Apartheid regime.
This March and April, there are Israel Apartheid Week campus events in over 250 U.S. cities, including disruptions of Israeli cultural events in Europe, as well as pressure on entertainment and cultural figures to cancel appearances in Israel, along with efforts to gain support for BDS from important religious institutions. All of this, is coupled with economic struggles in corporate boardrooms, among trade unions, and BDS’ “academic jihad” against Israel on campuses.
And, of course, this is the growing trend in Europe, including the European Union moving to ban or label products made in Israeli "settlements".
