Opinion Our pocket and the BDS Israel today


The new antisemitism may have an effect on the pocketbook of all of us. It is enough for a group of workers in an international company to refuse to unload Israeli goods

The World Cup is apparently the beautiful side of nationalism - the national colors in the streets and fields, players singing the national anthem with excessive excitement and exciting national "battles".

But it seems that when it comes to Israel, we get to see the ugly side of nationalism in relation to the soccer world cup.

Despite Israel's absence from the games, the big celebration turns into a celebration of racism and the elimination of Israeli-Jewish national feelings.

The boycott organizations working against the State of Israel did not ignore the World Cup, and continue their delegitimization and activity against the State of Israel there as well.

When, after a great victory, the Moroccan players choose to wave the Palestinian flag and not the flag of their country, this is part of the Arab nationalism that led to a great drift even in European countries.

To this day, the boycott organizations have repeatedly failed in institutionalized activity, and therefore precisely the strengthening of Arab nationalism and anti-Semitism that is bubbling under and above the surface can be disastrous for the State of Israel.

These may be swept away by various intra-organizational factors that will lead to boycotts and economic damage to the State of Israel.

This is apparently the same old anti-Semitism, but next to it the boycott organizations are strengthening the "new anti-Semitism" day by day.

This contains a confiscation of Israeli products or a demand to avoid Israeli publications on international websites, such as a company for renting apartments or hotel rooms, and more.

Israel's credit standing may be in danger: the first swallows are in countries like Norway, where pension funds have withdrawn their investments from companies they claim are linked to the Israeli settlements and announced that they will stop investing in Israeli construction and real estate companies.

We already saw hints of a bubbling area in "Guardian of the Walls", when more than 250 Google employees sent a letter to the management calling on the technology giant to examine the termination of contracts with Israel, or when Apple and Amazon employees called for the cancellation of engagement contracts with Israel.

This year, BDS groups in the US even succeeded in preventing the unloading of an Israeli-owned cargo ship in the port of Oakland, and recently, after much effort, the Booking company reversed its intention to label products from Israel.

The new anti-Semitism may affect the pocket of all of us, and maybe even the cost of living.

The BDS organizations operate in a systematic way on the individual (brainwashing), and not in an institutional way as part of some government policy.

The new antisemitism may have an effect on the pocketbook of all of us.

It is enough for a group of workers in an international company to refuse to unload Israeli goods.

Israel must prepare for a legal battle in international courts, train professional advocacy teams for this, examine things from the economic aspect and formulate ways of acting with the companies and regulators.

But first of all, the State of Israel must recognize this complex challenge that is about to unfold.

Do not turn a blind eye and do not continue with the "it will be fine" policy.

Acknowledgment is the first step.

Follow her on all the causes to shrink her waist and fight back her hair against those who might harm us all.

were we wrong

We will fix it!
