We have written dozens of times about Jewish Voice for Peace, which is a leader of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

From Winthrop, with the subject line White House vs. Big House:
This Veteran has made the call. Taken just now in Greenwich, “People’s Republic of Connecticut.”
“MCB-ONE” on the license plate must stand for Naval Mobile Construction Battalion One, which is part of the Seabees:
On Friday morning, September 18, 2015, the third grade classes at the Beverly J. Martin School in Ithaca, NY, heard a presentation on “human rights” by Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi and local anti-Israel activists, including
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the U.N. today.
As usual, it was an excellent speech.
The headline is that Netanyahu offered to have Palestinian President speak at the Israeli Knesset (parliament) and for Netanhahu to speak at the parliament in Ramallah.
President Abbas, I invite you to come...
Twitter suspends Instapundit for suggesting people not become victims of racist thug rioters (Update)
The rioting in Charlotte turned even uglier overnight, after the apparently false claim that a black man was shot dead by police for pointing a book.
All evidence so far shows that the “victim” was a career criminal who had a gun and turned towards police.
This appears to be another...
We all know that David Brock is a vicious attack dog for the Clintons. His Media Matters group is just one group that relentlessly attacks those who disagree with the Clintons, and anyone else deemed too “right wing” for Democrats’ liking.
But is there something improper going on with the various...

Inequality is bad, right?
A new survey documents that some people own lots of guns, while others own only a few.
That’s not fair!
Funny, I don’t hear liberals suggesting the government give out free guns to help balance gun ownership inequality.

Remember when millennial voters were going to help propel Hillary Clinton to near certain victory?
I was skeptical long ago. In early April 2015 (that’s 15 not 16, mind you), I wrote, Job One: Teach millennials about the real Hillary:
Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem long has been a source of incitement.
It’s not just the claims of Israeli designs to destroy the Mosque (built on top of Jewish Temples as a victory monument) which have been used at least since the time of the Grand Mufti in the...
This story was published a week ago, but I can’t find any follow-up as to whether they round the suspect. So apparently your help still is needed.

Sadly, as we have demonstrated so many times, some Palestinians children have been used in terror attacks, including as suicide bombers.
It is a culture cultivated by people like Bassem Tamimi and others in Palestinian media who deliberately send children to confront Israeli soldiers or Border Police in the hope of a...
I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.
Elizabeth Warren, as you know, is the self-righteous crusader for the least among us who appropriated the culture of the least among us, Native Americans, to try to advance her law professor career in the 1980s and 1990s. When she achieved a tenured...
An informative approach to the anti-Israel Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement is to understand the nature of the BDS movement, and how it infiltrates, exploits and ultimately subjugates other Peoples and causes to the anti-Israel purpose.
I have explored the numerous examples of such subjugation in my post, BDS is a Settler...
