Since 2005, groups that hate the only liberal democracy in the Middle East, have been attempting to destroy it with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. They have attempted to bully, threaten and attack famous celebrities, bands, governments and businesses that want to bridge the divide and open lines of dialogue in the volatile region. Thus far, these boycotts have accomplished nothing but fostering a culture of fear and violence in a situation that needs less of both. If you want to end a conflict, maybe the best thing to do ISN'T to try and keep both sides from doing business together? Maybe?
"If goods don't cross borders, soldiers will." -Frédéric Bastiat
Then again, if we're going to be honest with ourselves, the goal of these hate groups is not to end any conflict amicably. It's to destroy a nation.
So, rather than engage with the haters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign, here are just some headlines that prove their bullying tactics just don't work.
