Occupation Is the Issue, BDS Is a Distraction

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2010

To some, BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) is the latest threat to Israel's legitimacy. While it is true that the Global BDS movement does indeed intend Israel ill, it is not this marginal movement that threatens Israel. It is Israel's fool's errand of occupation that lies at the heart of the effort to delegitimize Israel, and it is on the occupation that those who care for Israel's safety should be spending their time and energy opposing. When the occupation goes away, BDS's moral high ground will recede, and peace will once again be on the table.
