Israeli technology and innovation are the most effective weapons against the BDS Movement. Frankly, they are the only weapons. Israel must never depend on America’s inept Jewish leaders to fight the BDS Movement.
Just like cyber security, digital health, AI, defense, and computer vision, Israel’s technological expertise has made it a major player in the development of autonomous vehicles.
Israel’s auto-tech companies are being acquired (here, here, here) for billions of dollars. The worlds largest car makers (here, here here, here, here, and here ) are flocking to Israel to open R&D centers. This past week was another eventful one for Israel’s auto-tech sector, and another bad week for the BDS Movement.
It is laughable for the mainstream (fake) media to say that Israel is isolated. In the not so distant future it is those who chose to boycott Israel who will be isolated.

General Motors, In Race to Auto 2.0, Leads In Snagging Israeli High-Tech Partnerships
Doron Levin, Forbes, June 13, 2019:
GM looking to hire another 100 engineers for Israel researcher center.
The global automotive industry’s migration to Israel in search of innovative ideas, start-up talent and high-tech partnerships is no longer a new trend: Almost every automaker or parts supplier of consequence has fielded at least a team of scouts based in the Tel Aviv area.
General Motors Co. is moving far beyond the scouting phase. GM leads Israel’s automotive pack, employing 350 and occupying impressive new digs in Herzliya, just north of Tel Aviv, in a high-tech district that is home to outposts for Google, Apple and many others seeking talent,

His company, he said, is working to develop a flying electric autonomous car that could ease road congestion at a fraction of the cost of private helicopter flights. His car, he added, could allow people to live away from city centers without having to spend hours on the road.
