BDS asks for some Israeli technology please

BDS-SA asks: Please sponsor smartphones. So the biggest sponsors of Israeli tech want us to donate some to them? The Embassy maybe...

Tongue in cheek

in a newsletter sent out this week, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel in South Africa (BDS-SA) organisation, which is the local arm of the US-based anti-Israel NGO that promotes boycotting of the Holy Land in every sphere, asked for a  cell phone donation or sponsorship.

“Do you own a cellphone (sic!) store or company?” asked BDS in their newsletter. “Can you consider sponsoring a cellphone (sic!) contract and/or donating a smartphone to BDS South Africa.” (sic!)

BDS 16 Cell phoneOne can only assume that the organisation knows full well that the cell phone was developed in Israel and that multiple Israeli patents are used in the manufacture of every "smart phone" – which they illustrated, that is manufactured.

week's BDS-SA newsletter

So, as this writer understand it, the world’s biggest organisation pushing to boycott any and all Israeli technology, even with regard to health and food security, is actually pleading for asking for someone to either sponsor or donate anything from an old phone to cell phone contracts – despite the devices, like computers and tablets, packed full of Israeli innovation will be used to promote a boycott of Israeli technology and products?

How then, can BDS-SA suggest that South Africa not use life-saving Israeli medical technology?

How does the organisation justify pushing so hard for drought-ravaged South African farmers not to consider using Israel’s world-beating water and farming technology?

How can the BDS organisation function without ICT technology?

They can’t, of course, but they do want everyone else to…
