Using the law against BDS

Here's an interesting idea I heard today. Remember the BDS actions at Carrefour, TESCO and others? What if the people who took those actions found themselves with lawsuits and criminal charges confronting them afterward?

I have been saying this for literally years - but I have no understanding of the laws or what would be required. What we really need is a international coalition of Jewish lawyers who will actively seek cases relating to BDS and offer to a) advise companies on how to deal with BDS from a legal perspective. b) encourage them to not give in to these tactics, and to do whatever is in their power under the law. c) offer to take up cases on behalf of any company that needs it without charging them.

It's already been tried in England and it didn't work. An antisemitic judge acquitted the saboteurs because their anti-Israel acts were deemed justifiable in his eyes.

It might work in the US though. It's certainly worth a try anyway, and the British judge is having his decision appealed.
