The sheep-like bleating of the BDS campaigners (Boycott, divestment and sanctions) suggesting that Israel is an Apartheid State, is so far from reality. If only these campaigners were prepared to listen to the facts. But, of course, this is too simple - "don't confuse me with facts" they say.
Perhaps BDS is better defined as "Blackmail, Deligitimisation and Slander", this seems to me rather more appropriate.
So if it is the intention to boycott Israeli products, let's stop being hypocritical, stop being choosey. Here are another two products that can be boycotted.
a) SpineAssist – an Israeli invention – is revolutionizing delicate spinal surgery.
Many patients scheduled for a major spinal operation naturally worry that they might find themselves in a wheelchair due to a surgical error, or simple bad luck. While this happens only rarely, it is a possibility.
The results of orthopedic surgery are as good as the specialist who performs it – but today, the risk is much reduced. Not only is there computer-assisted navigation for hip replacement, for example (introduced in the past decade), but now there is a robot that guides orthopedic surgeons in performing operations customized for each patient’s anatomy. The world’s first such robotic system, called SpineAssist, is Israeli – based on the work of a scientist at Haifa’s Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and marketed around the world by Mazor Robotics (http://www.mazorrobotics.com/) of Caesarea.
b) New non-invasive,radiation-free lung imaging system.
The FDA recently approved a groundbreaking system created by Deep Breeze, Ltd, an Israeli company in Or Akiva. It is viewed by some as the most important breakthrough innovation and another amazing Israeli innovation.Please watch video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FcseDRyepA
