    I do not believe that the ultimate goal of the Boycot Divensment and Sanction movement is dismantling the Jewish state. It is modeled after a similar movement around the Aparthied state of South Africa. BDS's goal is not to end the state of Israel but to put pressure on the government of Israel to end it's occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Much as the goal of the similar movement South Africa's was to pressure the government to stop its Apartheid practice of creating homelands, or "bantustans" within the territorial borders of South Africa, and to allow the residents the same rights as ordinary South Africans. That movement ended the practice but the Country was not dismantled. Most Palestinians do not wish to live in a fragmented territory , even with quasi autonomy, within the borders of a greater State of Israel. The BDS movement's goal is the end of the occupation and to move toward the creation of a Palestinian State. Not to end the State of Israel.
