1. BDS
Michael Ackerman ,   BklynToBoca (TW)   (06.04.15)
Israel can bring the BDS movement to an immediate end if it's TECHNOLOGY companies will stand with their fellow countrymen by Boycotting sales to ANY/ALL companies that employ BDS against selective Israeli companies/products.
2. European two faced-ness
Dennis ,   Usa   (06.04.15)
Europe: where either my commission or omission, killed 6 million men, women and children over five years, without batting an eye. They have no right to pass judgement on Israeli settlements. Especially when the perps behind this, the Fakestinians, are the ones who initiated terror, in European cities, and even the Olympics, right up to this day. I presume that they're more scared of the Muskim hords that have invaded each country there, but they're still two- faced bastards.
3. Arabs/Muslims have boycotted since 1948 and Israel thrives
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.04.15)
4. Funny that Gaza Arabs don't mind the handouts made in YESHA
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.04.15)
5. European banks
Nadya ,   California, USA   (06.04.15)
At least the European banks follow through and put their money where their mouth is. Not like the U.S. Saying we're disappointed with with the settlements but we don't want to make any waves.
6. We don't need Europe. They need us.
DOV ,   USA   (06.04.15)
7. I never would have believed it.
DOV ,   USA   (06.04.15)
Foreigners telling Europeans who to hate. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined it. Wait a minute, of coarse. The nazis told the Europeans who to hate once. Well here we go again. Europeans are SHEEP. Progress prosperity over unfounded ideology please. The boycott will not end if construction ceased in the so called territories.
8. The New wave of Nazim, hiding behind Sharia
When will they learn   (06.04.15)
All those European fools involved with the Muslim Nazi BDS, will wake up one day and will feel very embarrassed to discover that once again they were led by the nose by a hate regime that will gobble them up.
9. Ynetnews is a great contributer to the BDS movement
and you know it   (06.04.15)
I don't mean money.
10. Start from small countries,stop buying Danish products
ab   (06.04.15)
11. boycott THEM !
eddiE ,   sa   (06.04.15)
Don't buy from stores that boycott Israel -Stand outside with a placard saying that they do boycott -and advertise it too
12. Refute All Lies With Facts
And History of Judea and Samaria as well Covenant Ha Shem made with Jacob (Israel) and his twelve (tribes) sons and the land given to each, is there any expirerations on Covenants made by Ha Shem?
13. Boycott "Arab apartheid states" and "Muslim apartheid states
countries where Non-Muslims have no human rights and face all kinds of discrimination.
14. who gives financial support to BDS?
Larry ,   LA (formerly)   (06.04.15)
It is important to look into the financial supporters of the BDS a see how many Arab countries are giving their millions to influence the American and European youth.
15. Europe's New Masters have arrived. They're there to stay.
16. Today it's boycott Israel tomorrow it's sharia law
Scott ,   Ramat Gan   (06.04.15)
This should be troubling for Europe not only because it's blatant discrimination for singling out Israel & not targeting Syria for murdering a quarter million people or Iran which executes gays. It should be troubling because it shows the Islamization of Europe. Muslim immigrants are still pouring into Europe - legally & illegally and the ones that are there are far out-reproducing the native Europeans who typically have1 child while many Muslim families have 4 or more children. This would not be such a big deal if it were not for the fact that the Muslims do not share the European's liberal values & did not come to assimilate.
17. boycott of Israel is growing silently
Jon ,   Uk   (06.04.15)
It would be surprised if banks and others who boycott Israel the people who decide to boycott are being threatened that harm will come to them and their family
18. Not international, a European boycott
Antisemitic Europe   (06.04.15)
You won't find Asian or American companies boycotting Israel. The boycott is a European, antisemitic thing.

23. Let's stop exporting Israeli made life saving material
israel   (06.04.15)
24. All that food good for preventing Dementia.
Zechariah   (06.04.15)
Israeli agricultural products being fruits like dates and oranges are good for preventing Dementitia so its crazy. Israel ought diversify thoughintolife saving produce and theSetylements sell their foods to China and Asia there are alot of people's there.
25. boycott ??
Harry ,   Faroe Islands   (06.04.15)
All boycotts off Israel soon or lather will hid back as a boomerang.
26. "Growing silently"?
Shalom ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.04.15)
The title suggests that there have been new developments, but all - or almost all - of the examples named are not new but were reported some time ago. So the article does not tell us whether events are escalating or whether there is no more than a trickle of new cases, while elsewhere Israeli products are selling more widely than before. Overall trading figures of Israel with Europe, for example, have continued to rise despite occasional highly publicized incidents.
27. #22 - MORE gross ignorance of Asian culture and
spyguy ,   seattle usa   (06.04.15)
international trade. (1) Asians mostly want to buy from their own nationalities or if they have to import stuff, they want to buy from other Asian partners, therefore Israel is way down the list of potential partners. (2) Asian countries have zero problem with putting up huge trade barriers to protect their own companies (3) Asian countries have no problem "borrowing" intellectual property for internal use in their own country [they understand that exporting "borrowed" IP can be problematic, but internal use is usually OK]. (4) Asian counties have much lower labor costs than Israel (5) Asian countries are currently inventing most of the stuff global humans want and Israel has little of value.The bottom line is while Asia is a huge market, as many American companies have already found out, that market is effectively closed to non-Asians.
28. @ 20
sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (06.04.15)
You idiot, It is all Bibi's fault for putting his head in the sand thinking the Palestinian problem will go away. Obama supports Israel more than any country in the world, however he understands that the world will not accept the status quo. The US continues to VETO every UN resolution even though it is pissing in the wind of world opinion. It is not easy being the US that stands by Israel when 75 percent of it;s allies will sanctioned it in a heart beat. Give the US some credit for what it has done so far , even though it has to wipe piss off of it's face every few months.
29. right-wing Jews are like kids playing with matches... they
Rafi ,   US   (06.04.15)
... irresponsibly start fires in a room (opening ever more settlements), and then cry for help when the entire house is burning down (int'l boycott of all Israeli products). Wise individuals will ask how Israel got into this predicament. Start by asking the demagogue political opportunist Bibi. The predictable answer will be to never take any responsibility - but to instead blame outside forces of "anti-Semitism..., the media" , etc.
30. I would like to boycott Palastinian
MadDad ,   Johannesburg RSA   (06.04.15)
goods, services and inventions but I am unable to do so cause they make NOTHING.
