Stream of Consciousness

Well even if actual BDS battles (or even minor skirmishes) have not been in the news recently, there does seem to be a fair amount of talk on the subject of late. The highest profile of these debates took place on the pages of The Huffington Post where French philosopher Bernard-Henry Levi (or “BHL” as […]

Deutsche Bank Hoax Confirmed…

It looks like one of the pieces I linked to yesterday actually confirmed that the Deutsche Bank divestment story was another hoax, a la TIAA CREF and Blackrock from last year. With this many data points, I do hope that news outlets (especially Jewish and Israeli ones) can start treating future press releases about alleged […]

Blame Canada

I’m hoping to get to the hundred-post mark sometime in February (which is why you may see some shorter pieces here than usual over the next couple of weeks 😉 ). Word has it that Carleton University is the next target for the BDS “juggernaut.” “For the past four and a half years, BDS has […]

Hampshire and The Brain – Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Hampshire and the Brain

This latest piece was done on a dare from my reader. In one of the final pieces I wrote on the Hampshire BDS conference, I made reference to the Hampshire Students for Justice in Palestine’s “Pinky-and-the-Brain” type schemes to get Hampshire on board the BDS “bandwagon.” This is a reference to a 10+ year old […]

Clip Show 5: Et tu J-Street

This one appeared the day before the Hampshire meeting when J-Street came out condemning BDS in general, and the Hampshire event in particular. Now there’s a lot […]

Hampshire BDS Conference Transcript

I’ve been having a little fun over at my friend Sol’s blog (www.solomonia.com) regard next weekend’s divestment conference at Hampshire. I’ll try to post thoughts on that event here, but in the meantime you can find stuff on a blog which, unlike this one, has the advantage of actually being read by thousands… http://www.solomonia.com/blog/archive/2009/11/hampshire-bds-planning-meeting—exclusi/index.shtml http://www.solomonia.com/blog/archive/2009/11/hampshire-sjp-planning-meeting—continu/index.shtml […]

UTLA – Take 2

Before analyzing the significance of the UTLA’s success in avoiding the BDS infection, I hope you’ll indulge a quick personal observation. Like most bloggers, I blog about an issue I’m passionate about: the fight against divest-from-Israel campaigns. And that passion is no less (possibly greater – ask my wife) than that of BDS advocates. Yet […]

The BDS Double Standard

One of the most common challenges to the Divest-nista crowd is why they don’t call and march for divestment against Sudan, China, Libya or any of the totalitarian dictatorships whose daily human rights abuses dwarf anything Israel could have possibly done over the course of 60 years. Generally, their first response is to ignore the […]
