I recently visted the Jerusalem headquarters of Shurat HaDin, the civil rights organization that uses the legal system to fight terrorism against Israel.
"Money is the oxygen for the terror organizations," says Shurat HaDin director Nitsana Darshan, "and if we can stop the flow of the money we can stop the flow of terrorism."
They've filed successful lawsuits against the PLO, Hamas and other terror groups with settlements totaling $2 billion, of which $200 million has been awarded to victims.
They also target banks to discourage them from doing business with terrorists.
Shurat HaDin also advocates against the BDS movement and its comparison of Israel to apartheid South Africa.
Darshan says that while the anti-Israel boycotts have little financial impact, the movement's anti-Israel propaganda is warping the minds of many impressionable university students.
