Comptroller raps Foreign Ministry’s ‘failings’ against BDS

The Foreign Ministry lacks funding and overall strategic planning and failing to achieve its operational goals, particularly concerning international boycotts against Israel, a state comptroller report charges.

Shapira’s annual report criticizes a range of “failings” in the ministry, noting an inability to present any significant achievements in the battle against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

“Foreign Ministry projects intended to improve Israel’s image in target communities around the world are lacking in their planning, management and implementation and are failing to achieve their designated goals,” the report says.
