Wile E Coyote

BDS, Fail, Repeat

It recently dawned on me that those behind the aptly named BDS “movement” must have gotten their hands on that computer Wile E Coyote used in To Hare is Human. Fellow Bugs Bunny fans will remember that episode as the one in which the aforementioned villain decides to supplement his “super genius” with a build-it-yourself, […]

Sign the Petition for an Open Jewish Voice for Peace!

While Elder of Ziyon beat me to this particular gag, I realized that the whole Open Hillel tactic provided me the means to accomplish something I’ve been tempted to do for a while: continue my anti-BDS work as a member of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). When I originally looked into what this might involve, […]

Ballad of the BDSbyterians

This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series Presbyterian Church 2014

Sorry for the delay, for those of you who can’t get enough of manic song lyrics regarding obscure situations.  (Actually, it took some time to tone down what I started to write.) Anyway, in the spirit of the new BDSbyterian label I mentioned last time, I present a humble little ballad, sung to the tune (for the […]

Max Brenner – Supremely Epic BDS Fail

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series More Silliness

Hey guys.  I’m thinking of auditioning for The Onion.  What do you think? A group from Northeastern University’s Self-Righteous Asshole community made their presence known last night as they marched in front of Max Brenner’s restaurant and chocolate shop in downtown Boston for close to two hours, demanding that people not buy chocolate on Valentine’s […]

Sweet and Sour: BDS Visits Max Brenner

It’s not often the forces of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) decide to put their sour souls on display on the sweetest day of the year. Apparently, someone got it into their head that it would be a brilliant idea to picket Boston’s Max Brenner restaurant and gourmet chocolate shop on Valentine’s Day (i.e., tomorrow) […]

The Peoples Poet

They can try to hoodwink the public with press releases declaring their latest fake victory. They can interrupt ballet performances by shouting and blowing bullhorns (and turn the entire audience into Zionists in the process). They can even show up in the comments section of this blog demanding answers to irrelevant questions and never respond when we […]

JVP Hagaddah – Oy!

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series More Silliness

Well it took some doing, but my faithful team of dumpster divers managed to unearth an early draft of Jewish Voice for Peace’s most-remarkable Hagaddah. It’s clearly a markup version, but it provides keen insight into the true soul of BDS. Enjoy!

One of the few good things about the Web savviness of Israel’s opponents is that you sometimes get to see all of the hypocrisy and clownishness of the BDS “movement” by simply visiting a single Web site.  And nowhere is this efficiency more on display than at the site of my West Coast friends’ favorite […]

Thanks for Nothin’ Norman

Boy, when you start sounding like Norman Finkelstein (or, more specifically, when Norman Finkelstein starts sounding like you), it’s clearly time to retire. By now, my regular reader will have heard that Finkelstein, the bad boy of the Israel-hating network, has lashed out against BDS, condemning it as a “cult” (more specifically, a dishonest, marginal […]

PennBDS: Hamsphire Conference Planning Transcript

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series More Silliness

I’ve been attempting to generate all new material in this month’s series of postings paralleling the PennBDS conference agenda, rather than fall back on a “clip show” of previous postings.  But the next item up on their program (entitled “BDS On Campus I: Divestment Workshop”) didn’t really provide an issue to which I could hook a […]
