| Divestment Watch was created by
Fred Taub, the
founder and President of Boycott Watch, who uncovered the long forgotten US
antiboycott laws and researched how the divest-from-Israel campaign is subject
to those laws. This research is now the basis of action to stop the campus
based divest-from-Israel campaign which is now being spread nationally beyond
universities. The divest-from-Israel campaign has even permeated the
Presbyterian Church which Boycott Watch has challenged to both the Presbyterian
Church and the US Department of Commerce.
Boycott Watch is a consumer
service that looks at boycotts and reports both sides of the story so consumers
can decide for themselves what the truth is. Boycott Watch stands on the side
of truth and is a patriotic organization that stands up for US laws, including
US labor laws regarding illegal boycotts as part of union strikes as well as
the Department of Commerce laws pertaining to illegal foreign boycotts.
The divest-from-Israel campaign has garnered much attention, and since
Boycott Watch leads the fight against illegal boycotts,
Fred Taub decided
to create this website that is dedicated to the fight against illegal foreign
boycotts, and specifically the Arab boycott of Israel and the
This is not a pro-Israel site as much as
it is a pro-US site. President Bush asked the question: "Who do you stand with
- us or the terrorists?" People who stand with terrorists are in fact part of
the scourge of terror. Some donate money, some are cheerleaders. Some go as far
as supporting the terrorists cause by hurting Israel and the US in any way they
can, which in this case is by harming Israel economically via the
Make no differentiation between those who
want to harm Israel and those who want to harm the USA. Americans we warned
many years prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that the USA was a target of
terrorists, and it has nothing to do supporting Israel. The attacks on the US
are part of a war of ideals - freedom verses radical extremist Islamic-fascism.
If we do not stop the divestment program against Israel, the USA will be the
next target internationally.
The divest-from-Israel campaign is more
than just a campaign to create a Palestinian state. It is part of a larger
campaign by the Arab League and the Palestinian Authority to isolate Israel
economically throughout the world that includes, for example, a concerted
effort in the Arab community to create an economic blockade of Israel in
Malaysia and Europe. The desired results of the campaign is not just to push
Israel into a political settlement with the Palestinians, but rather to build a
world that sees boycotting Israel as proper, and therefore leading to its
economic collapse and destruction.
That is why Divestment Watch was
created - to monitor and stop the illegal boycott campaign against Israel and
democracy in general that is masked as a good-will campaign. Divestment Watch
stands on the side of truth, peace, liberty, and justice. We will fight he
scourge of terrorists and those who support them in any way.
