US fundraising site blocks BDS account after Israel advocacy group’s complaints

A US software company has blocked the fundraising account of the Palestinian-led boycott movement following a complaint by a pro-Israel advocacy group, reported the Associated Press.

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement denounced the move as “McCarthyite”.

According to the report, Donorbox, “which makes fundraising management software”, confirmed that the BDS campaign’s account was temporarily blocked while it investigates allegations made by Shurat HaDin, an organisation that specialises in legal attacks on Palestine solidarity campaigning.

AP said that the complaint was “submitted in coordination with Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry”.
