BDS is not What it Claims to Be

Proponents of BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) want to pressure the Jewish state out of existence. But what is the real purpose of the BDS movement as a product of international political action by Palestinian Authority intelligence? The PA knows perfectly well that it is not possible to pressure Israel into committing national suicide, in fact no amount of international pressure will attain that goal as indeed no nation state can be pressured into national suicide. When Israel was founded was it poor and internationally isolated yet continued to exist and flourish. The purpose of the BDS is rather to delegitimize Israel internationally and weaken Israel by causing it economic damage. BDS might seem strategic in purpose but is actually tactical in intent. 

The PA knows that it cannot destroy Israel yet does what it can to harm Israel to wear the Israeli public down through psychological attrition and thus demoralize Israel. BDS is simply psychological warfare disguised as a strategic effort to destroy Israel. BDS has turned into quite an effective means for mobilizing support for the Anti-Zionist movement around the world and disseminte PA propaganda. BDS constitutes political action by PA intelligence to also increase the scope of PA political influence worldwide. One major goal of the PA is to engineer Israel’s departure from Judea and Samaria as doing that would indeed facilitate for the PA to destroy Israel as the PA could invite foreign military forces of major Anti-Zionist Muslim nations such as Pakistan, Iran, Malaysia and Algeria to establish themselves in Judea and Samaria. By mobilizing BDS does Palestinian intelligence hope to demoralize the Israeli public and expedite Israel leaving Judea and Samaria. 

The PA plans to destroy Israel in stages and openly states so and BDS is indeed an important part of the PA political strategy to destroy Israel in stages. While to many ordinary Israelis BDS appears to be a strategic threat against Israel, the PA is obviously quite well aware that the BDS movement cannot achieve its goals on its own. Rather BDS is intended to galvanize international support for the Palestinian Authority and reversely diminish international support for Israel. BDS is primarily a tactical effort at psychological warfare to eventually create military conditions for destroying Israel and exterminating its population.
