Left, Right spar over Orange controversy and BDS in Herzliya

While the Right rejoiced over Orange CEO Stephane Richard’s apology for his remarks that he would withdraw his company from Israel if he could, Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog warned at the Herzliya Conference on Sunday that it was not a victorious moment for Israel, but rather a sign of defeat.

“It’s good that the CEO of Orange went on the defensive. But the totality of this problem – this disease – it’s important to understand that we are talking about a new intifada,” Herzog told the audience on the opening day of the conference.

“If I were prime minister, I would have already devised an organized plan to defeat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement,” he said in speech that largely marked what he would do differently had he been elected to the premiership in March.
