It’s hard being a principled member of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement.

With Israel being a leader in computer, medical and other technologies, one would have to enter a time machine back to the 1950s to truly boycott Israeli products.

The Cornell Students For Justice In Palestine is a typical anti-Israel...

We have written so many times about the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement.

The BDS movement is particularly strong on campuses in part because of the support from anti-Israel faculty and outside groups that target campuses:

The Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel movement is a Potemkin movement which has the façade of merely opposing the “occupation,” but which in reality seeks the destruction of Israel, and willingly joins with the worst Islamists and anti-Semites in that goal.

Groups like the American Friends Service Committee and

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement, as our readers know, is a vile combination of leftists and Islamists joined together by hatred of Israel who hide behind false and exaggerated claims regarding the “occupation,” when the real goal is the destruction of Israel.

The BDS movement, which includes many academics, singles...

Earlier this summer the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and Jewish Voices for Peace (JVP) held a BDS camp. The BDS (Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions) movement, which we have covered extensively, targets Israel.

Arab armies could not defeat Israel.

Nor could Palestinians turning their young adults into walking guided missiles.

Nor could Hamas rockets, nor will Hezbollah missiles. Iranian nukes pose a unique future threat, which will need to be dealt with at some point.

But there is a war Israel is losing, badly. The lawfare war,...
