The effort is non-militant, and rests on the belief that enough economic pressure on the state of Israel can force her to discontinue her murderous, inhumane and illegal treatment of the Palestinians. The Movement encourages international organizations to not conduct events in Israel; and it sanctions boycotts of private corporations doing business with Israel, particularly corporations whose products Israel purchases to make war on the Palestinians or deprive Palestinians of their natural resources in Palestine.


The BDS Movement rests, further, on its being analogous to the international boycott of the Boers in South Africa after Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990, largely because the Palestinians occupied Palestine for centuries before 1947, just as native South African blacks occupied South Africa for centuries before the Boer state of South Africa was founded in 1931. Both Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu are outspoken supporters of the Boycott, Divestments, and Sanctions Movement against Israel.
