Israeli gov't to launch anti-BDS site and app
The Ministry of Strategic Affairs prepares to launch an app and website allowing users to flag companies or sites for anti-Israel measures; support march to be held on Fifth Avenue in NYC attended by US and Israeli officials.
The Ministry of Strategic Affairs, which is headed by Minister Gilad Erdan and is leading the fight against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, is planning to launch a webpage and mobile app designed to help aid in the fight against boycott attempts.

 

 

The site, 4IL, will offer videos, cartoons and content for distribution to pro-Israel activists around the world. Simultaneously, activists from the Israeli American Council (IAC) and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya will launch the app version called Act.il, which will allow users to flag companies or websites that make anti-Israel decisions.

Minister Erdan, Governor of the State of New York Andrew Cuomo, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, Knesset members, senators and congressmen are all expected to participate in the march.
