Anyone else not get boycotting brands or even countries trend?

Like people boycotting Coke and McDonalds right now.

What’s that meant to so exactly, are Mcdonalds not meant to provide food to Israeli soldiers or something?

I mean as a general point not just in the Palestine/Israel conflict sense.

What am I missing here.

Mcdonalds is supplying meals to the israeli army so they are openly supporting the army and helping them commit genocide by supplying them with food etc. The intention of boycotting is to affect companies' sales for their open support of Israel. Many companies also have shares in companies which build and manufacture arms and weaponry for israel so by boycotting these companies for their complicit support for the genocide, as they own shares, this will most likely cause some of them to remove their shares, or remove factories which they have built on stolen palestenian land(illegal israeli settlements) Apps such as the No Thanks app help you to boycott the right companies for example by scanning a barcode which will tell you if this product is on the boycott list or not. Remember, people in Palestine are suffering and were breaking their fast on cooked grass. Surely we can avoid drinking pepsi or coca cola.
It's the BDS campaign.
Mostly undertaken by the hardcore class war agenda trade unionists, anti-Israeli psc grassroots activists, jew hating "terrorists in suits", stwc, anti-zionist fringe elements of judaism, revolutionary socialists & trots, theocratic racist jew hating antisemites and all of the general useful idiot allies connected with the above.

The medium to long term aims are to delegitimize, economically isolate and ultimately destroy the jewish state of Israel.
The short term aim is seeking to socially and financially pressure companies outside of Israel not to do business.
Primarily with those companies that seek to cultivate or retain positive relationships with either: the Israeli government, Israeli military forces, Israeli businesses owned by civilian jewish Israelis, Israeli universities and international businesses with ties to any Israeli businesses owned by jews that have premises or have entered into supply chain partnerships with any commerical entities that are based within disputed territories & West Bank regions.

Actually, it's mostly undertaken by people who object to, you know... cutting off food and water to civilian populations, murdering over 14,000 children in less than a year, airstrikes on aid workers and refugee camps... people who, to put it bluntly, object to genocide.

Claiming it's antisemitic to object to the 'Jewish state' while lambasting 'theocrats' is Olympic-level mental gymnastics. Is it Islamophobic to decry Iran's femicide epidemic? Is it anti-Catholic to highlight the Church's history of child abuse? It's sickeningly disingenuous to correlate Israel with Judaism as a whole. It's not some nebulous manifestation of Jewish culture; it's a country built on a foundation of ethnic cleansing, police brutality and constant violence against the native population. I'd much rather be a 'hardcore class agenda trade unionist' (whatever that's supposed to mean) than turn a blind eye to the IDF's atrocities.

What's even more silly about your essay is that there are Jews supporting the palestenian movement and the BDS campaign. I'm assuming they're antisemitic too? Most of these companies aren't owned by Jews anyways 🤣
