This weekend, on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, a conference will be held. The gathering, which the University is hosting, has been arranged by a group which is identified by the acronym BDS. BDS refers to the movement dedicated to punishing, vilifying and delegitimizing the State of Israel in three ways.
- First, this group encourages “B”, boycotting Israeli products.
- Second, the group advocates “D”, divesting from companies which do business in and with Israel.
- And third is “S”, the efforts to convince governments around the world to impose sanctions against Israel.
