Those still believing in the great "success" of the BDS movement should consider Israel's official export statistics for 2011 as published by the IEICI (Israel Export & International Cooperation). Exports have RISEN by 4.5%, no mean result considering the sad state of the world's economy. Exports to Arab countries (not including the PA) have risen by 10% (to 3 billion dollars) with a similar statistic with the Palestinian Authority. The BDS can threaten and harrass performers wishing to perform in Israel and sometimes they succeed. It has nothing to do with the performer's feelings but has everything to do with thug tactics. However it is obvious that they have had absolutely no effect on Israel's exports. Still what can one expect from a movement led by a man who screams apartheid at Israel after completing EIGHT years of a Ph.D degree at Tel-Aviv University. Such hypocrisy.
