One of the primary tenets of physics, as set out by Sir Isaac Newton, is that for every action, there is a reaction. This law is applicable not only to physics, but to many additional circumstances, including our support for Israel.
For example, the agenda of the BDS movement (Boycott/Divest/Sanction) demands divestment from Israel, including Israel bonds. This is the action. The most appropriate reaction is this: every call for divestment should be met with an investment in Israel bonds.
In fact, a single investment in Israel bonds achieves these positive results:
- It is a clear rebuttal to BDS advocates
- It helps keep Israel’s economy resilient
- It strengthens personal investment portfolios
- And it solidifies our shared connection to the land, confirming our belief in Israel’s vast promise and limitless potential
This last point prompts a closer look at who actually wants Israel boycotted. Certainly not individuals around the world benefiting from Israel’s life-saving advances in science and medicine. Certainly not the millions of people utilizing made-in-Israel technology to make their daily lives more engaging and productive. And certainly not the distressed citizens of nations afflicted by natural disasters – Japan, the Philippines, Haiti and more – who rapidly receive vital supplies and essential medical care from Israeli response teams.
During this time of critical geopolitical events, hypocritical double-standards and calls for divestment and boycotts, an investment in Israel bonds is a definitive reaction to the actions of those who wish Israel harm.
Thank you for your support.
