A panel discussion on boycott, divestment and sanctions will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on June 22 at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon.  

Part of the synagogue’s Bridges to Israel speaker series, the panel will feature three Bay Area leaders who will address the need for engagement with Israel in light of the BDS campaign, which calls for boycotting Israeli goods and services to end Israeli control over Palestinian territories.

The panelists are Andy David, Israel’s consul general to the Pacific Northwest, Eran Kaplan, professor of Israel studies at San Francisco State University and state Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-North Bay).

It is terrible.

BDS, is the terrible proposition that will not bring a peace. This proposition, will destroy Israel’s economy. It will also destroy our economy here. US and Israel, tries to bring to economy together. And, this boycotters? It is time to boycott boycotters such as Code Pink and so-called Jewish Voice for peace. Those two organizations, are promote BDS against Israel. The policies of the so-called JVP are pro war, pro Holocaust and pro destruction of the State of Israel. And, the same thing about the Code Pink. Rae Abileach, doesn’t want Israel. BDS, is anti Semitic proposition. We need to stand up against BDS. We all need to Stand up For Israel’s right to exist on this planet. Long life for Israel.
