“BDS isn’t about taking Israel out of business,” said Lisa Daftari from Foreign Desk News. “It’s about taking Israel off the map.”

Leftists sure are getting comfortable with openly calling for violence against others lately.

You would think this student’s message would be reprehensible to most people but he’s getting support.

You may recall the incident in the summer of 2015 involving Jewish American musician Matisyahu.

His appearance at the Spanish Rototom Reggae festival was cancelled after threats from local Spanish activists from the Boycott, Divestment and Movement (BDS) movement.

On Monday Jan. 30, Israel’s parliament (the Knesset) was set to pass into law a bill that bars BDS (boycotts, divestments and sanctions) advocates from the country.

The bill would extend the ban to those who back the anti-Israel BDS movement as well as those who support the boycott of settlement goods...

Despite its name, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) isn’t Jewish or for peace. It’s a radical group that provides cover to the anti-Israel movement, particularly on campuses, by legitimizing and mainstreaming its assault on Jewish identity.
