Major US BDS group seems to have gone silent

The US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the major US BDS group, seems to have gone virtually silent.

Its last press release was from July 1, 2020. Its last news update on its website was a couple of weeks before that. 

It still has a Twitter account but it shows almost all of its posts are retweets.

In December, it created a new website for its annual report that seems to cover 2019-2020. There is very little there; it discusses some online lobbying initiatives.

It pays its executive director Yousef Munayyer about $95,000 a year on total donations of a million dollars. 

It will be interesting to see its 2020 tax forms to see where its money is going. 

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
