’Israel’ To Spend $72 Million in Campaign against BDS
The apartheid "Israeli" government has approved a $72 million plan to face the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement [BDS] in the court of public opinion.
The plan was announced last week and was approved on Friday by executive decree, Ynet news site reported.
It calls for setting up a non-profit organization managed by a board made up of both government officials and private donors from "Israel" and abroad.
The Times of Israel reported that $36 million for the plan will come from the "Israeli" government coffers. The rest will be fundraised by private donors, some of whom have pledged "to give $2 and $3 to any dollar put in by the "Israeli" government beyond the initial funding."
According to the "Israeli" government, the monies will be spent on public campaigns and lobbying efforts that will seek to discredit the BDS movement.
