The Jerusalem Post is excited by the potential impact of the Giro d’Italia, which will commence in Jerusalem on Friday – the first time any of cycling’s three Grand Tour races is being held outside Europe, and states: “This event is also a spit in the eye to the BDS movement, a force that some try to marginalize but which does pose a concrete economic threat to Israel.”  Concerned that if BDS sanctions remain unchecked Israel’s political standing could be severely damaged, the editor declares: “In the face of those ongoing threats, the Giro glides in like a whoosh of welcome fresh air to counter the BS of the BDS. Holding the event in Israel is not just significant for Israel as a mega sporting event being held here, it is another defeat for the nefarious boycott movement.”
