JERUSALEM (AP) A top American Jewish leader on Thursday called on Western governments to combat the growing international campaign to boycott Israel over its settlement activities, saying the phenomenon is one of the greatest challenges facing Israel.

Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told The Associated Press that the drive masks a politically correct form of anti-Semitism and urged zero tolerance of the boycott.

His comments came just days after warnings by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that Israel could find itself increasingly targeted by a boycott if it fails to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. Kerry is mediating Israeli-Palestinian talks and is to present his vision soon for a deal, at least in its outlines.

Wide gaps remain between the sides on all key issues, including the fate of some 550,000 Israeli settlers who live on war-won land in east Jerusalem and the West Bank, two territories the Palestinians seek for their state, along with the Gaza Strip.

In recent months, concerns about a widening boycott of Israel over its continued settlement activities have moved to center stage in the Israeli public discourse.

A small but growing number of European businesses and pension funds have dropped investments or limited trade recently with Israeli firms involved in West Bank settlements. At the same time, a Palestinian-led movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions knows by its acronym, BDS has scored some successes.

Israeli officials hold different views on the boycott issue, depending on their political position.

JERUSALEM (AP) – A top American Jewish leader on Thursday called on Western governments to combat the growing international campaign to boycott Israel over its settlement activities, saying the phenomenon is one of the greatest challenges facing Israel.

Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told The Associated Press that the drive masks a “politically correct” form of anti-Semitism and urged “zero tolerance” of the boycott.

His comments came just days after warnings by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that Israel could find itself increasingly targeted by a boycott if it fails to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. Kerry is mediating Israeli-Palestinian talks and is to present his vision soon for a deal, at least in its outlines.

Israeli officials hold different views on the boycott issue, depending on their political position.

Finance Minister Yair Lapid, a centrist who supports reaching a deal with the Palestinians, has warned that a failure of the talks could further isolate Israel and hurt every Israeli financially. Hard-liners have played down the threat or said boycott supporters apply a double standard, targeting only Israel.

The BDS movement includes a range of views, with some activists calling for a bi-national state in all of the Holy Land and others supporting a two-state solution. The latter argue that Israel will only withdraw from war-won lands if it pays a price for continued occupation.

Netanyahu views trade boycott as strategic threat to Israel

The international campaign to boycott Israel is gaining strength and already is affecting the Jewish state.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has deemed the initiative a strategic threat and summoned his senior officials for an emergency meeting Wednesday to try to determine how to deal with it.

Video: Kerry cites progress in Mideast diplomacy

His Finance Minister, Yair Lapid, recently warned that Israel is particularly vulnerable to a boycott from the European Union, Israels biggest trading partner.

If there is even a partial boycott, he told Israels Institute for National Security Studies last week, Israel is likely to experience a drop of 20 per cent in exports to the EU, a reduction of $5.7-billion (U.S.) in annual earnings and a loss of 9,800 jobs.

Mr. Lapid added that should the EU just cancel its association agreement with Israel, that alone would cost Israel $1-billion in annual exports and 1,400 jobs.

Products such as Teva pharmaceuticals, Jaffa oranges, and Naot sandals would be among the most visible targets.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is expected to present a proposed framework for a Palestinian-Israeli peace accord next month, pointedly mentioned boycotts and divestment at a security conference in Munich on the weekend. For Israel theres an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up, he said. There [is] talk of boycotts and other kinds of things. Are we all going to be better with all of that?

Some in Israel took his statement of fact as a kind of threat. Israels Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz, a close ally of Mr. Netanyahu, called Mr. Kerrys remarks offensive, unfair and intolerable.

Israel, he said, cannot be expected to negotiate with a gun to its head.
