UK: BDS supported by just 12% of Brits

But just 43% object to Israel being singled out.

Via Jewish News (h/t Watch: Antisemitism in Europe):
Only about one in nine Brits support a boycott of Israel, and up to half think it would be detrimental to Palestinians, according to a new poll released on Tuesday.

A survey of more than 2,000 people, commissioned by BICOM and carried out by Populus, also showed that up to a quarter of all respondents felt that a boycott would make Israel less likely to negotiate peace.

Nearly half of the respondents (47 percent) thought the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign would hurt both the Palestinians and Israelis, 43 percent objected to Israel being singled out and only 12 percent supported it. It also found that more than half considered Israel to be the UK’s main ally in the Middle East.   read more
