On Friday, March 30, Israel’s enemies — including groups like the BDS movement and Hamas, and individuals like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Berkeley’s Prof. Judith Butler — are planning a Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ) to protest the “Judaization” of Jerusalem. Organizers boast that millions of anti-Zionists are expected to join in the march across all of Israel’s borders – threatening many of Israel’s towns and. GMJ’s goal: To provoke confrontations with Israel and pursue a strategy of delegitimizing Israel’s very right to exist.
Organizers are also calling for a boycott of Israeli goods on the same day. In response, American Friends for Israel (AFSI) has announced a “BIG” – Buy Israeli Goods – campaign. They’re urging Israel’s supporters everywhere to turn March 30th into a day to celebrate the Jewish state by stopping in at local shops to purchase products made in Israel.
