2016 witnessed Israeli failure to silence 'boycott, divestment, sanctions movement'

The year 2016 will be remembered by Palestinians and supporters of the Palestinian issue as the year of Israel’s spectacular failure in fighting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The year 2016 will be remembered by Palestinians and supporters of the Palestinian issue as the year of Israel’s spectacular failure in fighting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

According to BDS, in 2016, Israel allocated massive financial assets, well-oiled propaganda, and cyber sabotage against the movement.

Throughout this year, BDS has grown stronger and stronger. Major multinationals, including Orange and CRH, abandoned their involvement in Israeli projects that infringe on Palestinian rights. In Spain, tens of city councils announced themselves "Israeli Apartheid Free Zones".

BDS led both UNICEF in Jordan and Kuwait's Public Institution for Social Security to end contracts with the American G4S, which supports the Israeli occupation.

The campaign succeeded in convincing hundreds of academics in Brazil and Italy to join the academic boycott of Israel. It also reached the Oscars, calling on nominees to forgo Israeli propaganda trip.

The BDS also accused Israel of targeting its activists around the world, and considered this a clear violation of the humans’ rights of personal security, life, expression, and peaceful protest, guaranteed by the international laws.
