BDS seen as a "strategic" challenge to Israel's oppression

Israel regards BDS as a “strategic threat” to its ongoing oppression of Palestinians and spending millions of dollars on sabotaging BDS and persuading supportive governments to repress BDS activism. Some Israelis, including business leaders and politicians, have called for modest changes to Israeli policy in response to the growth of BDS. Israel has responded to the growth of BDS by launching a war of repression against the BDS movement.
