Delegitimization/BDS Resources Archives

The BDS movement is a Palestinian-led attempt to harm the Jewish state by misappropriating the language of the civil rights movement and the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. The strategy of the global BDS is through a boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign, which is being pushed in communities and on university campuses around the world. This campaign, and the overall strategy, also targets and isolates supporters of Israel. The IAF is dedicated to delegitimizing these promoters of demonization, as well as attempting to cut their funds and supporters.
