Given the pretention and shrillness of the self-declared Jewish Voice for Peace organization, sometimes the easiest approach to such a group is mockery and ridicule. But given their most recent pronouncementregarding escalating clashes between Israel and Gaza, paired with the group’s escalating demands that it be granted immediate and unconditional entrance to any “Big Tent” […]

I’ve decided to start my own branch of the organization Jewish Voice for Peace here in the Boston area. The mission of my new branch, which will be called JVP-DT for the time being, will be to communicate the Divest This message that all attempts to target Israel with Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions are not […]

Tactics – Surprise, Surprise, Surprise

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Tactics

Muzzlewatch Gets Miffed

Sorry, but I’m going to have to take a day off from exposing the Hampshire divestniks for what they are in order to respond to this hilarious posting from my old friends at Muzzlwatch.
