BDS

River to sea BDSBoycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) are tactics of political warfare used against Israel, intended to isolate it economically, culturally, and politically.

The BDS Movement (BDSM) claims it supports a two-state solution, and non-violent resistance. As many of my links below will show, this is absolutely false.

On this page, I am documenting many instance of the BDS Movement’s:

  • Antisemitism
  • Calling for violence/destruction of Israel and support of terrorism
  • Criminal activities
  • Suppression of free speech, bullying & nasty behavior
  • Lying and ignorance
  • Indifference to palestinians
  • Hypocrisy and stupidity

I have also documented high-profile opposition to BDS
