The BDS movement claims that boycott, divestment, and sanctions are necessary to pressure Israel to comply with international law, but international law does not support the claims of the BDS movement. On the contrary, both the BDS movement and the actions of states under the influence of the BDS movement violate the fundamental rights of Israel and the Jewish people under international law.Andrew Tucker
