Gaza: Here We Go Again

It’s time like these, when the missiles are flying in from Gaza (virtually guaranteeing an escalation in violence), that the true nature of BDS and associated “peace movements” stands revealed. For according to every source and interpretation, one of the things holding the Israeli’s back from immediately retaliating against an enemy opening fire at its […]

New Facebook Page

Well that project I mentioned would be eating up a lot of my time until Election Day is winding down, which means I’ll be getting back to more regular blogging over the next few weeks, as well as introducing some long-overdue updates to this site between now and the end of the year. As a […]

Burden of Proof

As some of you know, I’ve become interested in the philosophy of argumentation over the last few years, with a particular interest in the fallacies people use to try to “prove” points that can’t be demonstrated using standard techniques (such as providing accurate and relevant evidence organized into proper and logical arguments). I suppose interacting […]

Statements

Last week, I talked about what a genuine BDS victory might look like, and how we would know when it had come about. This has become an important issue since, in most instances when the BDSers sent out a press release announcing their most recent “triumph” (certainly any one that involved boycott or divestment decisions with a […]

Prove It!

Well things seem to be a bit quiet on Planet BDS land these days. The last big announcement I can see on the BDS Central web site has to do with the Quakers, and (as noted here), we have yet to hear from any of those crowing boycotters as to why – if their victory is so absolute […]

Ask Herzl

I’ve sometimes been critical of “our side” with regard to leveraging the Internet and Web 2.0 communications to get the word out. I definitely include myself in that part of “our side” that needs to do a better job communicating the truth as effectively (if not more effectively) than the BDSers spread their lies.  But an excellent […]

Quaker Quotes

  Sorry about the graphic (I couldn’t resist). Anyway, one of those friendly BDSers who regularly visits the comment section showed up last week to announce, yet again, a new stunning victory which I and everyone else is in complete denial over (since said victory means BDS is just inches from bringing the Zionist entity […]

Veolia – Ain’t the truth pretty?

Every now and then, someone steps up and does the legwork regarding debunking BDS claims so well that one can only stare at their work in silent admiration. But having gotten that silent moment out of the way, it’s time to praise this remarkable piece of research by the UK groups Lawyers for Israel and Christian Middle East Watch which helps […]

UCSA BDS OYVAY

I frequently find myself flabbergasted by the way the forces of BDS, while trying to seize the reputation of someone else for their own purposes, repeatedly shred their own reputation in the process. And no divestment story I’ve ever encountered illustrates this phenomena better than this week’s hijacking of the University of California Student Association (UCSA). If […]

UCSA UGH

What is it about Israel haters and the Jewish holidays? Any number of you out there can probably list the times anti-Israel events, conferences, programs and activities were scheduled to begin, oh, around sundown on Friday and continue until right around sundown Saturday. But last weekend, we seemed to have entered new territory in which […]

Time on Their Hands

My current semi-hiatus from Divest This blogging (i.e., not a leave of absence, but a temporary lowering of posting frequency during a period when I’ve been involved with a particularly engaging work project) has gotten me thinking about another advantage enjoyed by the BDSers vs. their opponents. For while I have been expending creative energy in other […]

A response to Mike

As I mentioned a couple of weeks back, some obligations in the second half of the year have left me with limited time to, among other thing, post or respond as frequently to comments as I would like. But one of our visitors (Mike who runs the excellent site Israel Thrives) was taken enough with the […]
