y a 1005 to 653 vote, a food coop in Brooklyn’s upmarket Park Slope, will not proceed on a motion to boycott Israeli products, especially those manufactured in illegal Jewish settlements in the Palestinian West Bank.

It brought to international attention the ongoing campaign to Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against the Zionist state.
BDS is modelled on the campaign launched against Apartheid South Africa.
