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, […]
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 […]
This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series More SillinessHey 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 […]
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) […]
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 […]
This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series More SillinessWell 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 […]
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 […]
Well it’s a sprint to the finish line to have something to say for every item on the PennBDS agenda before the conference starts. Fortunately, this morning’s entry will be brief since, for the life of me, I don’t have the slightest idea what a talk on “BDS and Literacy Expression” (the next item on the […]
This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series More SillinessI’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”) […]
The Internet (or, at least the 4/1,000,000,000th of it controlled by the self-proclaimed “Jewish Voice for Peace”) is in a tizzy over the latest slight to their Dear Leader. Backstory: The Jewish Federations of North America recently began an online project called Jewish Community Heroes.While I was only aware of it in the context of […]
Well now they’ve gone and done it. In their excesses and their deception, in their over-reach and harassment, in their hectoring and their lies, the forces of BDS have summoned from the pages of history and the scrolls of our heritage, the one, the only… Captain Israel! May the diety have mercy on them.
