The bigoted, terrorist-loving, pro-war BDS 'movement' (which is frankly no different than the countless other Jew-boycotting movements which preceded this current one), will be getting together for a little rendezvous, shamefully under the auspices of a Quaker group, in New York next month.
Though this is surely nothing new for the Quakers.
This 'Friendly' (tm) hate-filled hoedown will follow the usual pattern - it will feature all the rather unfriendly, historically deadly antisemitic tropes BDS is so fond of; nobody outside of a few folks like us will notice it, and it will then slouch off toward its well-deserved insignificance until the next time those failures show up somewhere to proudly preach their hate speech.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center report said the BDS program meets Natan Sharansky’s “3D Test" for anti-Semitism: It follows “double-standards” by criticizing Israel while overlooking human rights abuses across the Arab world; “demonizes” Israel by comparing its actions to those of Apartheid regimes; and attempts to “delegitimize” the Jewish state by targeting its existence.
Why I think we should take notice, and what we should try to counteract, is the apparent mainstreaming of modern day bund camps like this. Their ideological predecessors were shut down by our government the last time around, because we just so happened to enter a major war against their patrons not long after.
Such a thing is unlikely this time around, though, and to be honest I wouldn't even support a government crackdown in that same manner myself, but what does need to be done is exposure of who these people are and exactly what they stand for. And making sure their atrocious ideas remain far out of the mainstream, and stay there forever.
