The Boycott Mirage

US Secretary of State John Kerry is warning that Israel faces economic embargoes if a US-drafted framework agreement with the Palestinians fails to go forward. 

While the merits of the current American diplomatic initiative are debatable, Kerry's warnings clearly have a deleterious effect: 

  • they feed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign being waged by Israel's enemies, and 
  • create the false impression that this campaign is a significant threat to Israel.
