The hijacking of progressive causes by the anti-Israel boycott movement is a frequent focus of mine, as I laid out (for the umpteenth time) recently, BDS is a Settler Colonial Ideology:

BDS itself has become a settler colonial ideology, which imposes itself on other peoples and other struggles, conquers, and subjugates the...

One of the mysteries of the anti-Israel “non-governmental organization” (NGO) movement is the sources of funding.

NGO Monitor has done a great job tracking some of the funding particularly for Israeli NGOs, and groups involved in the BDS movement, such as Jewish Voice for Peace.

In 2013, NGO Monitor also explored (pdf.) the role...

If you think the Black Lives Matter movement is just or even primarily about “Black Lives,” then you don’t understand the movement.

A new research report, based on detailed interviews with those active in the movement, demonstrates that the organized movement is a vehicle for a radical leftist anti-Capitalist agenda, using “Black...

A war has been declared on Israel on campus by faculty and students supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

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.

On the faculty academic front, we have seen...

I have documented how some Palestinians, such as Bassem Tamimi, have created an industry of exploiting children for the cameras in a very dangerous way.

They have the children confront soldiers with the cameras rolling, hoping for a reaction and viral video or image. The video and images are crucial in the...

In an unexpected move, the United Methodists decided on Tuesday to call on the church’s mission agency to withdraw its membership in the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (USCEIO).

Based in Washington, D.C. the USCEIO is a vehemently anti-Israel umbrella organization for the boycott, sanctions, and divestment (BDS) movement. Its...

I know a cover-up happened at Brown/RISD Hillel over an anti-Israel “Nakba Day” event held on the premises organized by a small group of leftist Jews and anti-Israel campus allies.

How do I know? I was there.

Such an event arguably violated Hillel International’s Israel Guidelines (aka Standards of Partnership), but it is not...

You may recall the name Janna Jihad.

Janna is a member of the Tamimi clan from Nabi Saleh. Among the more infamous Tamimi members is Ahlam Tamimi, the woman who organized the Sbarro Pizza restaurant suicide bombing in 2001, and then broke out with a huge smile when she learned that more...

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.

BDS, including in the U.S., has plenty of money to organize, fly people around, and coordinate efforts across dozens of campuses and multiple countries. Yet BDS...
