Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction: Lacking a Consensus 

 

The "apartheid" charge against Israel is wrong, is unjust, and will not advance the cause of peace in the Middle East.

PFMEP Fact Check

Much of the material presented on Israel/Palestine comes from advocates of either Palestinian or Israeli narratives. “PFMEP Fact Check” is a new web page dedicated to addressing the accuracy and completeness of facts presented, and assertions made by, various parties to the debate.  

The first paper we’ve developed for this section is called “The Four Maps”, and it addresses a set of maps that are widely used by advocates of the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement. Click on the icon below to read the paper.

The Caterpillar Tractor Company is the number one target of the global Boycott, Divest, Sanction (BDS) movement. The company is targeted for divestment because it provides bulldozers to the United States government that are then re-sold to the government of Israel and utilized by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). BDS literature is filled with accusations that Caterpillar bulldozers are tools of a large scale, systematic campaign to destroy the homes and property of Palestinian families. Investigating these accusations, we think the facts tell a quite different story.
