Jerusalem think tank to Netanyahu: We must go on the offensive against BDS

Israel’s counter-boycott strategy needs a comprehensive overhaul, providing efforts to combat the delegitimization of the Jewish state with high level support and funding in order to move beyond mere rhetoric, a prominent Jerusalem think tank told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday.

The Jewish People Policy Institute briefed the premier during Sunday morning’s cabinet meeting, presenting the government with its annual assessment of the state of the Jewish people and calling for Israel to switch over to the offensive in waging public relations battles.

The report recommended that “the government promptly adopt an appropriately budgeted comprehensive strategy [to combat boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns], and task a senior government official, who reports directly to the prime minister, with coordinating its operational implementation.”
