    Descripton:


    "I think that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign will greatly intensify. It will be incredibly even more difficult for defenders of Israel's apartheid regime to defend Israel in this new era. (Prime Minister) Netanyahu's election makes our job advocating for these campaigns much more easy."


    – Josh Ruebner, policy director with the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, on the outcome of the March 17 Israeli election.
