The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement aims to stifle the growth of Israeli products, services, and innovation. It is a global campaign intending to increase economic and political pressure that is detrimental to Israel’s continuous growth. Its impact ranges from negative perception against Israel to destroyed individual Israeli lives whose livelihood depends on affected companies. More than anything, BDS disrupts the already fragile stability of the Middle East which is the biggest threat for every one of us.
American-Romanian Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel said,
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must
never be a time when we fail to protest.”
