What is BDS?

Prompted by this post on the DP, I was moved to do a little research on the boycotts of Israel. Netanyahu says those who boycott Israel are anti-Semites, and apparently Ted Cruz agrees.

The second article mentioned BDS. A quick Google search turned up this website, bdsmovement.net, with this info:

WHAT IS BDS?
In 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights. A truly global movement against Israeli Apartheid is rapidly emerging in response to this call.
