Today's BDS fail: Finland to buy Israeli drones

Finnish media are reporting that Finland is going to purchase Israeli Orbiter UAVs with a value of 23.6 million euros ($31 million.) They are part of a plan to put up a new line of defense to replace land mines banned in the Ottawa treaty.

This might be the same UAV tender that many Israel-haters fought tooth and nail against last year.

So this isn't just a BDS fail - but one where the BDSers spent months to try to derail. All for nought.
