Thriv­ing

tu­ral pro­duce — this week pro­test­ers tar­geted its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing.

But the re­al­ity is that, while it is en­cour­ag­ing to see Is­rael pro­duce on sale in su­per­mar­kets, the coun­try has moved a long way from the days when it was de­pen­dent on fresh pro­duce for ex­port in­come.

Is­raeli firms pro­vide some of the cy­ber-se­cu­rity used by Bri­tish banks and have been at the fore­front of the gam­ing revo­lu­tion that has trans­formed Bri­tain’s bet­ting in­dus­try. From the con­trol­ling cards in Sky boxes to med­i­cal de­vices and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals Is­raeli prod­ucts are part of the Is­raeli-Bri­tish trade land­scape.

BDS may feel it has won a vic­tory. But it has been fought in the sym­pa­thetic ter­ri­tory of Brighton and on a very nar­row front. Its im­por­tance should not be ex­ag­ger­ated. Alex Brummer is City Edi­tor of the Daily Mail
