WOW! Look How Badly the Boycott Against Israel Has FAILED

By

For over 11 years, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been trying to harm Israel’s economy.

Newly released data shows that the boycott has utterly failed. In fact, it might even have helped Israel’s economy grow!

A former Israeli ambassador to the US noted that Israel is experiencing record foreign trade, investment and acquisitions.

He cited a recent Bloomberg report that read:

“An examination of foreign capital flow into Israel shows a near tripling from 2005 when the so-called BDS was started…. Israel’s economy is expected to grow 2.8% in 2016, compared with 1.8% for the US and the EU.”

Every major hi-tech company in the world continues to invest in Israel. Microsoft, Intel, Apple – all of them maintain research and development centers in Israel.

A huge number of Israeli hi-tech and bio-tech start-ups are acquired each year by foreign conglomerates.

Bloomberg expects Israel’s economy to continue to strengthen in the coming years.

“Against the backdrop of [this] documented track record of Israel’s economy,” the ambassador concluded, “one may define the claim that Israel is isolated as either dramatically mistaken, or outrageously misleading.”
