Our friend, Angelika, was kind enough to bring this compilation of BDS’s impressive success stories to our attention. Netanyahu can run from BDS, but he certainly can’t hide.

BDS has proved to be a lot mightier than the sword--almost as strong as the pen.

Thanks for posting it Sam! Hope the nitwits, fools, fakes and bloodhounds won't fall it here.

But the biggest story of all is the story of those individuals who boycott Israel quietly and silently--as a matter of principle--in solidarity with the Palestinians. Netanyahu cannot fight those unknown heroes and no government can pass any laws to prevent them from following their conscience. To those unsung heroes, Happy 10th Anniversary!

How much money Arabs spend each year on their diplomatic war with Israel! Shame on them.

Nazi boycott of Israel failed.

Arab boycott of Israel failed.

This Arab-Leftist boycott of Israel will also fail.

When did the Nazis boycott Israel?
That must be yet another bit of hasbara information being misunderstood ....

The BDS movement has clearly caused irritation to the Israeli government - otherwise why is dear Sheldom investing so much in trying to counter it? And why is the pro-Zionist lobby trying to make it illegal - even sneak it in to TTIP?

Some of the most effective BDS action in the US is led by Jewish Voice for Peace ....

BDS movement is a clear demonstration that Jewish (Israeli & non Israeli) and Palestinian groups can work well together in support for non-violent resistance to State of Israel human rights abuses. Developing a genuine peace process is NOT impossible: it only requires sincere will to achieve justice and equal rights as a basis for coexistence ...
