Buy Israel Week: Fighting the Anti-Israel BDS Movement

— by Ronit Treatman

Since yesterday you can join people from all over the world in supporting Israel by participating in the Buy Israel Week.

In 2005, the Palestinian-Arab BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement was founded. It is a global movement trying to delegitimize Israel by boycotting Israeli universities, events featuring Israeli speakers, stores selling Israeli goods, and Israeli companies. The Buy Israel Week was organized in order to combat their efforts with the purchasing power of Israel’s supporters. The Week’s sponsors are calling to buy Israeli products from your local businesses, or online, with a categorized list of attractive deals in the Week’s website.
