Supporters of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) scored a big win many years ago when they managed to pass a boycott of Israeli products at the Olympia Food Coop in Olympia, Washington.

It was the first such successful coop boycott, and I believe either the only one or one of...

The anti-Semitism deeply embedded in the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been apparent for years, but particularly since the 2014 Gaza War.

Rallies against Israel regularly devolved into Jew-baiting throughout Europe, and even in some places in the U.S.,

This would be funny were it not for the fact that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is such a sad sack of haters.

Activists from Ithaca Jewish Voice for Peace were behind the recent failed effort to get GreenStar Food Coop in Ithaca, NY (home of Cornell University) to boycott Israel....

Activists from Ithaca Jewish Voice for Peace brought a referendum to the GreenStar Food Coop in Ithaca calling for a boycott of Israeli products.  The effort was national, with big names such as Angela Davis (radical anti-Israel prof.) and Medea Benjamin (Code Pink) lending their support (see Featured Image).

The effort was...

We have written several times before about the effort by Jewish Voice for Peace activists in Ithaca, NY, where Cornell is located, to advance a referendum at the GreenStar Food Coop to boycott Israeli products.

The Greenstar Council is considering whether, under its bylaws, there are grounds to reject the referendum petition,...

On Sunday, March 1, 2015, we provided on-scene coverage of Code Pink’s “Shut Down AIPAC” protest. The most notable feature of the protest was the waving of Hezbollah flags.

Code Pink managed to get some press coverage even though it didn’t shut down AIPAC, or even an itsy, bitsy part of AIPAC, because five...

We are in the midst of “Israel Apartheid Week.”  In the U.S. it lasts from February 26-March 12 — which is more than one week, but anti-Israel groups always take liberties with terminology and numbers.

On campuses we will see mock “Apartheid Walls” (referring to the Israeli security barrier); but we will not...

Today, I braved an ice storm to video protests at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC.

The nasty weather didn’t stop a group of around 60 anti-Israel activists from storming the steps of the Washington Convention Center and blocking at least one entrance to the conference grounds....

We are dealing with some really sick minds when it comes to the proponents of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement propaganda machine.

The latest is from a group with over 91,000 Facebook fans, called “I Acknowledge Apartheid Exists.”

That phrase is an integral part of the BDS movement, which falsely seeks...
