Haaretz: Israel Is Paying the Price of Occupation

September 6, 2010

Haaretz finance and business writer Nehemia Shtrasler knows what’s up: “The sums involved are not large, but their international significance is huge. Boycotts by governments gives a boost to boycotts by non-government bodies around the world.”

In his piece in Israel’s paper of record, Shtrasler grapples with the reality of the unthinkable: Israel losing its free pass.

Anti-Israel economic boycotts are gaining speed

BDS, though not huge in dollar terms, has been a giant step forwards because the very discussion Shtrasler engages in was impossible even a few months ago. BDS gets the system moving. And the mention of “a chain in Washington” is most gratifying. You rock, OlympiaBDS!
