( Israel’s strategic affairs minister, Gilad Erdan, is due in the next few weeks to introduce an official Israeli government plan with a budget of $25.9 million to combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, Israel Hayom reported Sunday.

“The motive behind boycotts isn’t Israel’s policies in Judea and Samaria, but an unwillingness to accept our existence here as a Jewish state and our historic right [to the land],” Erdan said.
