Israel allocates $575,000 to organisations fighting BDS

Nov 07,2019

This is part of initiative launched last year by the ministry to donate NIS6 million ($1,719,789) to fight BDS all over the world.

Israeli ministry for strategic affairs announced on Wednesday it would allocate NIS2 million ($575,000) to fund organisations active in the fight against BDS.

The funds will be used to produce and promote viral videos on social media to help increase familiarity with the Israeli occupation state, defame the BDS and mobilise other pro-Israel activists to fight those who boycott it.

According to Israeli media, the videos will be produced in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German and several other languages.

“This is another important step to assist Israeli advocacy in the world,” Minister for Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan said in a statement.

“We will continue to present the just truth about Israel, and fight the lies and incitement of BDS organisations,” Erdan added.

The move is part of an initiative launched last year by the ministry of strategic affairs to donate NIS 6 million ($1,719,789) to pro-Israel organisations which fight BDS all over the world.
