Israel haters and Electronic Intifadumbasses Ali Abunimah and Rania Khalek have been targeted by their own for a while now, because of their stance on the slaughter in Syria, which many see as apathy at best and pro-Assad at worst. Khalek, in particular, has been widely condemned, for accepting an invitation to speak at an Assad-affiliated conference.
And the stench of that decision just won’t go away for Khalek, with UNC Students for Justice in Palestine just cancelling a talk featuring her after some pressure was brought to bear.

Naturally, Khalek is not happy.
People smeared me as an anti-Muslim Assadist to get my talk on Palestine canceled. And they won. pic.twitter.com/qSMXPQYphk

But here’s the best part:
I don't think ppl understand the economic terrorism these ppl inflict. First I lost my job bc of them. Now I can't even speak on a campus.

This coming from Khalek, a proponent of BDS against Israel (which involves stopping Israelis from speaking on campus and losing money among other things).
Will he support BDS, the only course of action to end this grievous injustice? https://t.co/BCvPcbzYC5

Why boycott Israeli academic institution? Because: Israeli universities lend support to Gaza massacre http://t.co/h3xjLoAEmV

Boycott, divest, sanction.
