It seems every week there's a new skirmish between the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and those who support the State of Israel. Wherever the battle is playing out, B'nai B'rith International is always swift to condemn the latest push to delegitimize the Jewish state. The global BDS campaign does nothing to advance peace and calls the movement’s real objectives into question.
As a strong advocate for the peace process and direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, B'nai B'rith International's actions against the BDS movement cannot be understated. Anti-Israel measures taken by the movement only reward the Palestinians for their refusal to engage in constructive dialogue with Israel and puts off the possibility of resolution on this issue.
B'nai B'rith is also quick to recognize those who have joined the fight against the BDS movement, publicly lauding states, schools and associations that have put down any attempts to isolate Israel.
