UK diplomat: London opposes boycott calls against Israel

Deputy UK Ambassador to Israel Rob Dixon said that "the British government vehemently opposes calls to boycott Israel. We are deeply committed to promoting trade and business ties with Israel, as part of the prosperous partnership between the two countries.” Dixon added: "Britain will never let those who want to boycott Israel to impede a 60-year partnership that does so much to strengthen both countries." He was responding to a decision by the British National Union of Students (NUS) to join the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement against Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said the fact that the British NUS is willing to boycott Israel but refuses to ban ISIS says it all about the organization.
