As some of you may know, the big US BDS event for the year will be taking place at the University of Pennsylvania, February 4th and 5th (mostly during Shabbat, of course).
I’ve been batting around some ideas for addressing this stunning gathering of BDSholes from around the nation, but despite the occasional accusation that this blog is secretly funded by AIPAC, the Israeli government or the Elders of Zion (take your pick), I seem to lack the funds needed to fly speakers in from around the globe (just as I was unable to charter a flotilla of ships to sail across the Mediterranean).
But even with the meager sums I have to play with (most of my income being derived from editing coloring and connect-the-dots books, with a small supplementary allowance from my Mom), I have decided to do what I can for the Israeli (I mean the NazionistapartheidyNeoCon cause) by spending the month of January writing blog entries inspired by the program of talks and workshops that will be taking place at U Penn in February.
And because the blog format (which organizes information in reverse chronological order) is a bit cumbersome for an endeavor of this type, I have created a landing page (financed with Ben Gurion’s secret cache of gold coins) which I humbly entitle PennBDS – Oy!
Actual postings will appear on this site as usual, but if you my humble reader wants to direct people to a place where they can hear a rejoinder to the nonsense being peddled in Pennsylvania, feel free to direct them to the PB-Oy! site which will receive a live link whenever I complete a new essay taking apart one of the BDSers treasured talking points.
Oh, and as usual, this site shall remain open to comments throughout this project so PennBDSers, Jewish Voice for Peace-ians, Young Jewish and Proudniks, Adalahans and anyone else who wants to play the role of interlocutor and actually advocate for and defend (rather than just bellow and snarl) the BDS agenda is more than welcome to take part in an actual conversation.
Lock and load!
