What happens when Irish store owners are faced with a choice between engaging in commerce with Israel or doing business with regimes like North Korea, Iran, and Sudan?

Ami Horowitz, an American Jewish satirist, released a video on Tuesday of a report from Ireland, “ground zero” of the BDS movement, in which the locals are adamant about not carrying Israeli products but are perfectly agreeable to help the economies of despotic regimes.

“The boycotting of Israel is an insidious, noxious movement that needs to be fully exposed to the public,” Horowitz told Fox News commentator Sean Hannity. “BDS supporters are less human rights advocates and more anti-Israel bigots. I wanted to give them an opportunity to showcase that bigotry on a global platform.”
