The President wasn’t at all friendly in the interview, warning (in Goldberg’s words) that “time is running out.” Roughly four weeks later, Mahmoud...

There were many great speakers on March 25, 2014, in opposition to the University of Michigan anti-Israel divestment resolution, but hers stood out to me. The resolution ultimately was defeated 25-9.

Michigan Student Assembly Divest

The University of Michigan student assembly rejected the anti-Israel divestment resolution pushed by a coalition of student groups.

The greatest contrast during the night was that while the pro-divestment speakers lashed out at Israel with great vitriol, the anti-divestment speakers — many of whom were critical of some Israeli policies — were...

Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd, endorsed the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement in 2011.

Since then, his rhetoric has gotten more and more extreme, including comparing Israelis to Nazis. He uses a giant balloon of a pig at his concerts, featuring a Jewish Star of David on its side.

It’s not a political video.

It’s about how Israel is helping rehabilitate Palestinian Fatah members who have been knee-capped by Hamas in Gaza.

It’s also about how Fatah did similar things to Hamas members.

The brutality visited upon each other is nothing compared to what would be visited on Israeli Jews if Fatah and...
