Danish 'Courage Award' to Anti-Israel Movement Raises Eyebrows

Three members of the BDS movement, which is attempting to undermine the state of Israel financially and opposes its politics, have been decorated with the Copenhagen Courage Award for "having worked tirelessly to reveal the apartheid-like nature of the Israeli regime and its systematic violation of international law".

Copenhagen Mayor for Technology and Environment Ninna Hedeager Olsen has triggered mixed reactions by proudly awarding a prize for courage to three activists from the anti-Israel movement BDS at Copenhagen City Hall, the Danish newspaper Berlingske reported.

BDS (which stands for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) is billed as a "Palestinian-led global movement for freedom, justice, and equality". Much of its work is to encourage boycott of Israeli goods and companies. The movement is also working against Israeli settlements it deems illegal.
