Anti-Israel activists, usually acting under the banner of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, repeatedly try to hijack unrelated causes to turn them against Israel.

We have documented such actions many times, including with regard to Ferguson (Michael Brown) and Baltimore (Freddie Gray) riots, Eric Garner protests, the Standing Rock Sioux pipeline protest, domestic ...

Disrupting Israeli, pro-Israel or even not sufficiently anti-Israel events and speakers has become the tactic of choice for anti-Israel students on campuses.

We have documented dozens of such disruptions. The goal is not only to disrupt the speech of others, but to keep campus speakers away by sending a message that they...

The academic boycott movement against Israel has achieved very little so far, though it has poisoned the campus atmosphere with its anti-academic freedom message.

There is no university or college in that United State that I’m aware of even considering the academic boycott of Israel. The academic boycott resolutions at faculty organizations...

The rallying cry is to blacklist those acting on behalf of Israeli academic institutions or participating in “normalization” events, such as musical and cultural events.

David Horowitz doesn’t pull punches in defense of Israel and western civilization.

One of the most common questions I get when I give speeches about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has to do with its funding.
