Nowhere in the world outside of Silicon Valley can you find a greater source of innovation and technology than Israel. That is why every major tech company in the United States invests (here, here, here) massively in the Jewish state. American tech companies are greatly enhanced by their R&D operations in Israel. However, the sick and evil leaders of the BDS (Boycott the Jews) Movement are now lobbying tech companies to divest from Israel. The good news is that the leaders of the BDS Movement will suffer another humiliating defeat at the hands of the Israelis.

Activists In Tech Push Anti-Semitic BDS Campaign Inside Workplace After Israel Defended Self From Terror
By Daily Wire, June 1, 2021
Far-left activists working inside major U.S. tech companies are waging an anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel in response to Israel defending itself from Palestinian terrorist attacks last month.
The push for the anti-Semitic BDS campaign comes after Palestinian terrorist organizations — Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad — launched more than 4,300 rockets at Israel last month with approximately 680 falling inside of Gaza. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) responded by launching targeted strikes against the terror groups, resulting in the deaths of more than 200 terrorists, as well as the destruction of more than 60 miles of underground tunnels they were using.
The activist tech workers “are strategizing with outside activists over the best way to agitate against cloud contracts with the Israeli government,” Politico reported. “A May 21 webinar for activists interested in demilitarization in the Palestinian territories, which BDS organized, included a breakout room devoted entirely to tech worker activism on the issue.”
An employee at Google who was part of organizing the activist’s efforts said that what is happening is “a broader reckoning within the technology industry about its involvement in Israel.”
The report noted that Microsoft “divested” from an Israeli firm after activists within the company pressured them to do so last year. The report said that activists inside Google and Amazon were trying to pressure their companies into canceling major contracts with Israel’s government. Amazon is currently in talks to set up three data centers in Israel while Google is setting up a new Google Cloud region in Israel.
“A major target of pro-Palestinian activists’ ire is a $1.2 billion cloud contract called Project Nimbus, which the Israeli government awarded to Amazon and Google last month,” the report added. “Though public information about the contract is scarce, Israel has said the companies will help provide cloud services to government agencies and the Israeli Defense Force. Shahar Bracha, the acting CEO of a technology-focused unit within the Israeli prime minister’s office, lauded Amazon’s cloud-computing unit and Google as ‘the Rolls-Royce and the Maserati of the cloud world.’”
Maria Jeffrey Reynolds, a spokesperson for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), said in a statement that the activists inside the tech companies were “a bunch of privileged people in Silicon Valley” who were pushing their companies “to participate in the anti-Israel BDS movement.”
The U.S. government late last year recognized “the global anti-Israel BDS campaign as anti-Semitic,” then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. “We want to stand with all other nations that recognize that the BDS movement for the cancer that it is and we’re committed to combatting it.”
