The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is determined to make it easier to boycott Israeli products. To that end, it is about to launch a smartphone app that will allow users to search for a company's links to Israel, the International Business Times reported on Thursday.
The app will allow boycotters to "dynamically and quickly identify products that fall within the BDS boycott guidelines," the International Business Times quoted Abbas Naqvi, a founder of PennBDS, as saying.

Recently, Waters criticized American actress Scarlett Johansson, who serves as a spokeswoman for the Israeli company SodaStream that has a factory in the West Bank.
The app is still in its beta stage, and a launch date has not been specified.
