BDSers Call for an ‘AidCott’ of Soros for Daring to Invest in Israel

The BDS leadership is telling the Israel-bashing and trashing organizations which have long been feeding at the Soros waterhole, to engage in a reverse boycott, an "aidcott."

Ask anyone deeply involved in the current social wars against Israel to name the biggest funders of the hate, and one of the first names they’ll offer is George Soros.

But recent reports revealed that Soros invested in the popular carbonated drink maker Soda Stream, one of whose factories is located in Maale Adumim, a suburb of Jerusalem one the haters’ wrong side of the Green Line. It was also revealed that the aging billionaire increased his holdings in Teva Pharmaceuticals, an Israel company which manufactures generic drugs.

Now Soros is in the doghouse along with everyone else who dares to invest their money in Israeli companies.

As reported in The Tower, The Palestinian BDS National Committee posted an official statement on its website, BDSMovement.Net, calling for

a boycott of the Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundations due to the recently announced investment by Soros in SodaStream stock and increased investment in Teva Pharmaceuticals, both Israeli companies

which, the BNC  says, violate international law.

The BDS movement teaches that Israeli communities and businesses located beyond the 1949 Armistice Line (often referred to as the Green Line) constitute war crimes.

Teva Pharmaceuticals is despised because, although its offices are located in Petach Tikva, within the 1949 Armistice Line, “Teva enjoys the benefits generated by the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands, allowing the company to exploit the Palestinian market,” according to a local human rights group.

The Soros universe of beneficiaries apparently includes just about every center-left to further-left to extreme-left group imaginable. A site gives a lengthy list – with links – of organizations to which Soros has funneled billions of dollars including, of course, Media Matters for America, the New America Foundation, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the American Friends Service Committee, and The Tides Foundation, all of which have been extremely hostile to Israel.

In a fascinating twist, the BNC suggests all the Israel-bashing and trashing organizations which have been feeding at the Soros waterhole for so long engage in a reverse boycott, an “aidcott.”

Usually the goal of economic warfare against problematic practices is to encourage as many people as possible to refrain from patronizing the alleged wrongdoer so that its profits plummet and the wrongdoer stops engaging in the criticized activity in order to turn on again the lifeblood flow of cash.

In this case, the BNC is telling non-profit organizations that they should tell Soros unless he “cleans his investment portfolio,”and stops investing in (profitable) Israeli companies, they should threaten Soros that they will “refrain from applying for funds from those foundations.”

You can no longer say the BDS movement never produced anything original – aidcott is a first.

  20. Anonymous says:

    If you learn the name of ANY BDS member, DO NOT HIRE, FUND, or SUBSIDIZE that creep.

  21. A curse on all of their heads! "The curse of a rabbi shall come too be"(Talmud: Makous 11:a)

  22. Bill Ades says:

    Ha! Talk about biting the hand that feeds them

  23. I am confused. Since when are we occupying "Palestinian" lands? They were offered a country ("they" being the people who call themselves "Palestinians") in 1947/48 which they refused. Instead they attacked the reborn country of Israel, over and over again. Israel won. It is a country. The "Palestinians" are stateless and very lucky that Israel permits them to live where they do live. So why does the world, or 95% of it, repeatedly say we are "occupying" Arab lands? And why the BDS?

    I'll tell you why. It is just a continuation of the millennia-old anti-Semitism, with Israel as the excuse – this time. Last time the excuse was that we were contaminating the pure "Aryan" race of Germans. While we were apparently doing that (contaminating), they boycotted Jewish businesses and Jewish everything. Go back to the Mediaeval years: The excuse then was that we didn't believe Jesus was the Messiah, and so we were evil and had to live in ghettos in case the "good" people caught our evil. And they boycotted our right to have jobs or careers. All they allowed us to do was money-lending.

    In 1891, the Arabs of the Middle East decided to boycott Jewish purchase of land in the ME because they didn't want their pure (!) Arab culture contaminated by Jews. That 1891 boycott has never stopped. Through the centuries it has been added to (Hitler), subtracted from (occasional decent European rulers), and now we have the proudly evil BDS – just a continuation of the same old boring anti-Jewish boycott.

    Meanwhile Israelis and Jews from other parts of the world have won more Nobel prizes than any Arab could ever dream of, and Israel is a beautiful, Jewish country, successful in almost every way, with some of the best universities in the world – while the Arabs sit whining and lying through their teeth on their pile of dung.

  24. Alan Kardon says:

    Maybe Soros is finally realizing that he was giving money to the wrong groups? I don't think I believe that statement.

  25. Judith Dowla says:

    Weighed, Divided, Measured. Next?

  26. Judith Dowla says:

    As the saying goes,“Do not look a gift horse in the mouth“

  27. Judith Dowla says:

    Rabbi Friedman, like some of the curses that were handed out on Mt. Sinai. Are you going to ask ADONAI to deliver certain ones in particular? As in what they create they will attract back to themselves exactly likened to a boomerang.

  28. Judith Dowla says:

    Are you indicating it would be an unwise investment“O“?

  29. Judith Dowla says:

    Winners take all. Losers go home. Tell it like it is.

  30. Judith Dowla says:

    Some media lie and profit from this crime and do it openly knowing better. One law for one and another law for another. And we know the truth always prevails. Eyes and Ears on the walls and in the air. Win in this lifetime and lose in the next one. What do you say Bobby? Truth or Consequences eh?

  31. Judith Dowla says:

    You could contact your rabbi or pastor depending on whether you are a Jew or a Christian and they can explain to you how you can get your message out.

  32. Judith Dowla says:

    Sounds like they are hanging themselves high for a fistful of dollars.

  33. I can't believe these people are they Insane ?

  34. Thank you Bobby, that is so true, the media need a lesson in history or at least ME. history

  35. Jacques Daniel. May be the hands of God All Mighty is helping him to see things differently than before.

  36. I think that Soros is getting older and is afraid of the God's judgement. His Heart is full of hate. He owes Jews a lot He thinks that money can buy forgiveness. I do not think so:he is very greedy.

  37. Clement Levy says:

    THE BDS AND BNC STUPIDITY HAS NO LIMITS

  38. Kola Finger says:

    At last some very good Signals from Jew-hating fascists. Send SOROS to NAZI KZ in Hungary, or in Germany, or in Austria, or in Eurabia there planty of Nazi controlled Islamic Annihilation paradises are growing up faster than muchrooms… Let Soros feel before he disapear what mans to be the nazified runner for islamo-fascistic Hell he counted on,taping the blood of countless Jews he got rid off. The Nazi race still pay him for his well-serving deeds…
