"Committed to Boycotting Israel?"

The "Committed to Boycotting Israel?" ad appeared in dozens of student newspapers, and was also distributed as a poster along with brochures and flyers on campuses in the US, Canada, and abroad.


The response from embattled but proud pro-Israel students and faculty was overwhelming.

One student activist from a prestigious American university wrote, "It is comforting to see that the Simon Wiesenthal Center is active on a campus level." Another, from a Canadian student stated, "This is an amazing poster...[it] will speak well to the thousands of students who don't really know the facts, but might stop to think if they see something like this."

The Wiesenthal Center is committed to supporting our students on campus and to provide the innovative tools they desperately need to fight back against insidious campaigns to delegitimize Israel and demonize world Jewry.

We've been overwhelmed by requests for more ad placements as well as posters and flyers. (Click here to view and download the iCAN ad). We can't do it alone - we need your help.

In response, we are launching the "Who Says Terrorism Doesn't Pay?" poster and ad to coincide with the self-declared BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) Day. The virulently anti-Israel BDS Day will take place on campuses around the world, this Monday, March 30th.

In their own words, the BDS campaign: "...urge[s] the people and their organizations around the globe to mobilize in concrete and visible BDS actions to make this day a historic step in this new anti-apartheid movement. The time for the world to fully adopt and implement the Palestinian call for boycotts, divestment and sanctions is NOW" ... by "adopting widespread action against Israeli products, companies, academic and cultural institutions, sports groups, international corporations supporting Israeli policies of racism, ethnic cleansing and military occupation and pressuring governments for sanctions."

We need your immediate support to make sure our message exposing this hate and hypocrisy reaches the young people who need it most!

You are the key to the success of this timely and crucial effort. Please make a special contribution to the Simon Wiesenthal Center in support of our iACT Campus Outreach program's real-time campaign and all of the Center's strategic efforts to respond to these unprecedented challenges.

Together we can empower our students to proudly stand up for Israel, to combat anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial on their campuses and in their communities.
Thank you in advance for your timely support!
