preface
For decades, diplomats, politicians, and pundits have weighed in as to how best bring
 peace to the Holy Land. In 2013, U.S. President Barack Obama is paying his rst
 presidential visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories to try to reboot hopes for peace.
There is, however, one campaign—BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions)—that presents itself 
as a pro-peace initiative but in reality is a thinly-veiled, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic “poison pill,” whose goal is the demonization, delegitimization, and ultimate demise of the Jewish State.Taking a page from the late twentieth century worldwide campaign against the South AfricanApartheid regime, BDS casts a global anti-Israel net on campuses, among unions, entertainersand Churches.I, along with Dr. Shimon Samuels, the Center’s International Relations Director, were witnessto its international launch at the ill-fated 2001 UN World Conference Against Racism inDurban, South Africa. It is a movement that does not help better the life of a single Palestinianand which is oblivious to major human rights disasters erupting throughout the Middle East and beyond.Finally, BDS campaigners are also hypocrites. I have yet to hear of a single BDS crusader refusingto utilize the outsized contributions of Israelis to cellphone technologies, the digital revolution, or  biotech breakthroughs that have transformed the quality of life for billions and saved countlesslives.Dr. Harold Brackman’s Report provides a comprehensive overview of BDS. Please downloadit, read it, and share it with your friends, colleagues, and students in your family.
And you can partner with the SWC’s ght against BDS by reporting BDS activity online, in
your community, campus or church. Email us the links atBDS2013@wiesenthal.comRabbi Abraham Cooper.Associate DeanSimon Wiesenthal Center
