(Algemeiner) The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement is designed to delegitimize the State of Israel. Its object is to target the country’s very identity and legacy. A people’s future cannot be stolen unless its history has been erased. With that in mind, the BDS movement seeks to undermine not only Israeli tourism in general, but its greatest and most meaningful attraction — its multi-faith religious roots.
It is true that Israel features excitement and awesome beauty in its museums and urban spaces, stem-to-stern coastline, deserts, caves, hill treks, river trips, zip lines, and jeep excursions, not to mention its nightlife. But many nations offer outstanding museums, mountains, wilderness, and cities.
