Using Lawfare To Peel Back The Face Of The BDS Movement: A Fireside Chat With Ron Machol, Chief Operating Officer Of The Zachor Institute

February 15, 2023

While the BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) movement portrays itself as a grassroots campaign using legal means to combat alleged Israeli crimes, at its core, the movement is radically different.

In addition to spreading anti-Israel disinformation, BDS campaigners also frequently use tools of discrimination in their attempt to demonize the Jewish State. While these efforts can take place anywhere, college and university campuses, as well as inside the halls of government, are frequent targets for this battleground aimed at delegitimizing Israel.

In the face of these campaigns, many pro-Israel efforts have been launched in response, including the use of legal means. In this week’s podcast, we sit down with Ron Machol, the Israel-based Chief Operating Officer of Zachor Legal Institute. Ron has a hi-tech background and is responsible for project development and outreach at the organization.
