The move employed by this movement is one where certain regions are being declared as Israeli free zones, meaning that they do not allow any good and services from Jews to be sold in the region. This is an act of economic sabotage aimed at weakening the Jewish State by first affecting it economically and secondly alienating it from other countries.
