The Billionaire Bill Gates throws Israel Under The Bus because of Arab Pressure!

Yup, He is afraid that a bunch of towel wearing Arabs will stop investing with him, so he divests from an Israeli Company!
Time to buy Apple, folks!
Amid an international boycott against the company over alleged human rights violations, billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has sold a portion of his shares in G4S, the international British security firm that has current contracts with the Israel Prison Service. ( reports that Palestinian NGO, Addameer, in conjunction with multiple other international organizations, called on Gates in April to divest in G4S over its treatment of Palestinian political prisoners currently being detained at Israeli detention centers in Ofer, Ketziot, and Megiddo.
Calls for Gates to divest stemmed from Addameer’s contention that Gates’ Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a philanthropic entity, should not be affiliated with a company accused of human rights violations.
A spokesman for the Addameer Palestinian Prisoner and Human Rights Association praised Gates’ move, saying, “we have been arguing that it is completely unacceptable for a charitable foundation to be investing in a company, like G4S, which participates in gross human rights violations against Palestinian political prisoners, including child prisoners. We welcome this step in the right direction
