This whole thing confuses me. What does Israel even export that could be boycotted? The majority of Israeli exports are diamonds, pearls, and raw precious metals. None of that stuff is stamped "made in Israel". I couldn't boycott Israel if I tried.

Banking and technology. A LOT of computer chips are made there.

Shit what about HP in Ireland? HP is definitely on the BDS list. I wonder if they'll end HP subsidies or cut ties somehow.

I'm just glad someone had the balls to stand up to them.

Sabra hummus is a big export. But aside from exports, BDS also boycotts companies who do business with Israeli settlement programs, like HP Computer and Caterpillar tractors https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2d/CAT_D9R-4.jpg

That's a humanitarian bulldozer.

It's for bulldozing human rights.
