Nobel laureate George P. Smith speaks about BDS

Prof. George P. Smith, 2018 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, spoke about BDS during his trip to Stockholm, Sweden, Dec 2018. Thank you, Prof. Smith, for your principled support! “People of conscience all over the world have an obligation to pay attention to abuses of human rights, like [Israel’s] 71-year regime of dispossession and subjugation. "The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, that 170 Palestinian civil society organizations called for in 2005, calls for boycotting Israel until it meets some ordinary requirements, some minimal requirements, of moral behavior on the part of nations. "Joining the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is a platform to persuade other people of conscience that this is something that needs our attention. And there are many honorable reasons, especially for people in the United States, to focus on this issue of great moral impact.”
