The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, recently rebranded as the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian rights, is one of the most virulently anti-Israel activist groups. Legal Insurrection recently covered how the US Campaign’s plan to hold a seminar on Capitol Hill was canceled when it became known just how extremist...

Omar Barghouti is the co-founder of the BDS movement. He lives in Israel because he married an Israeli woman and is a Ph.D. student at Tel Aviv University. [*] Yet he supports the academic boycott of Israel.

Contrary to Barghouti’s narrative, the BDS movement was founded at the anti-Semitic 2001 Durban Conference,...

We wrote recently how BDS is a settler-colonial ideology, in that it invades, conquers, and subjugates other movements to advance anti-Israel actvism.

There are few instances where this is more apparent than Dream Defenders, one of the key groups in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Dream Defenders was initially formed to protest ‘Stand Your...

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...

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...
