JNS.org – WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum’s comment on a Facebook post revealed his stance against the a anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The pro-Israel advocacy group StandWithUs posted a photograph of an Apple laptop covered with pro-Palestinian and “Boycott Israeli Goods” stickers. A hand-written note laying on top of the computer read, “Hi there! Just thought you should know the flash-storage inside this computer was designed and built by Anobit, an Israeli technology company! If you don’t want it any more, please pass it to the desk behind you.”

StandWithUs captioned the photo with, “From University of Oxford: Boycott Israel stickers on Israeli made technology—only a BDS supporter would be so foolish.”

Koum’s comment on the post said “priceless,” offering simple-yet-clear public opposition to BDS.
