The 506 Israeli companies with offices in New York pumped a whopping $18.6 billion into New York states economy in 2018. The number increase to $33.8 billion when factoring spending on goods and services. This accounts for 2.02 percent of New York states GDP. In addition, the 506 Israeli companies directly or indirectly account for the employment of 27,502 New Yorkers.
This is who the pro-Palestinian Left wants America to boycott. Has anyone ever asked supporters of the BDS Movement to explain how a state such as New York will get this money pumped back into their economy? Has anyone ever asked about the 27,000 plus New Yorkers who would lose their jobs should Israel ever be boycotted? Probably not.
