The BDS movement is reportedly pressuring or cooperating with the United Nations Human Rights Council, as the latter is preparing a boycott list to include all Israeli companies operating over the so-called Green Line. The boycott list is expected to be published in the coming months and those on the list will be viewed as taboo.
Yisrael Hayom reports the list is the initiative of BDS activist Richard Falk, formerly a UN special reporter on Palestinian human rights. Falk has been pushing for the list since holding that office some six years ago.
