BDS movement to top chefs: Don’t feed apartheid

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, known as BDS, is calling on top chefs from around the world to refrain from participating in the upcoming Round Tables culinary show, a "Gastro-diplomacy” movement "which aspires to improve trade and cultural relations between countries."

According to a BDS statement released Tuesday, the organization is urging top chefs from nine of the world’s most prestigious restaurants to cancel their visits to the Jewish state, which the BDS movement says is a "complicit initiative that whitewashes Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians."

The BDS statement also notes that none of the chefs invited to the event have taken steps to cancel their planned visits.
