With a schedule that involves two kids, summer camps, deadlines and a wife out of town, I didn’t have time to look at the video I posted about a few days back or find out about its origins.
As it turns out, the video was produced by StandWithUs (as a courtesy to my friends at Olympia: boggah, Boggah, BOOGAH!!!!!!).
Watching it through with nothing else going on in the background, I found that the video focuses on an area of BDS I’ve gotten short shrift to in all my writings on the subject: the emphasis “the movement” places on targeting those who truly seek and are working for reconciliation between Arabs and Jews.
The video highlights several stories of such peace-seeking individuals and organizations who’ve been threatened by BDSers in the one location where they have the ability to enforce their will: the Palestinian controlled territories.
In due course, I’m hoping to explore this area more thoroughly, especially since the targeting of those who truly seek peace for retribution is a pretty good indicator of the distance between the BDS-brigades “peacy-y” rhetoric and reality.
