#RabbiSacks: How the #BDS Movement Plans to Destroy Israel

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement says it’s fighting for Palestinian rights, but it’s really just trying to destroy Israel. Jonathan Sacks, author and former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom, explains how.

The hostility towards Jewish students on campus is just part of a larger change within academia. HATE SPACES illustrates how anti-Semitism is being made fashionable at many American universities through on-going academic de-legitimization of Israel and the normalization of hatred in the name of social justice.

Invest in BDS — Boycotted Companies Make Lots of Money
by Elder of Ziyon
April 26, 2017

Yesterday, Caterpillar announced much better financial results than were anticipated, and its stock price rose by nearly 8%. half-jokingly tweeted that a smart investor should look carefully at any company that BDSers want to boycott, because it might be a great investment. So I decided to test my theory. Here are all of the publicly traded companies that I could find on the BDSList.org website. I’ve also listed their stock prices from a year ago and today, with the percentage gained or lost. (Some companies are only listed on the Tel Aviv Exchange.)  If you would have invested equal amounts in all of these companies a year ago, you would have made an astounding 50% profit. (The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 16% in that time period. The top funds rated by Kiplinger for the past year made about 30%.) READ MORE

AG: I can personally confirm the accuracy of this posting. I bought SodaStream June 2016 at $21. It’s now trading at $55. And I’m an architect, not a stock guy.

#WashPost: “Settler construction is seemingly the primary focus of the paper’s Jerusalem bureau and numerous editorials”

The Washington Post’s Jewish home fixation
by Sean Durns
April 26, 2017

Washington Post reporting on the Arab-Israeli conflict has become increasingly lopsided. The Post, with seemingly greater frequency, omits Palestinian rejection of Israel’s legitimacy and fails to report on internal Palestinian affairs. Instead — and to the detriment of its readers — the paper inordinately focuses on Jewish houses in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Readers of The Post could be forgiven for mistakenly assuming that Jewish home construction in the West Bank is the cause of a conflict and that it predates Israel’s acquisition of those territories in the 1967 Six-Day War.  READ MORE

Netanyahu to German Foreign Minister: “You either meet with me or Breaking The Silence”

Israeli-German spat brings to fore Europe’s funding of BDS and terror
by Adam Abrams
April 27, 2017

A diplomatic spat between Israel and Germany has provided a prominent platform for research that documents the European Union’s funding of the BDS movement and terrorism. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a meeting with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel in Jerusalem April 25, due to the latter’s insistence on meeting with nonprofit organizations that campaign against the IDF and alleged Israeli human rights violations. Netanyahu’s move came after he issued Gabriel an ultimatum to terminate his scheduled meetings with representatives from B’Tselem and Breaking the Silence. READ MORE

CUNY Defends Decision to Host Anti-Israel Activist as Commencement Honoree
by Adam Kredo
April 26, 2017

The City University of New York (CUNY), a taxpayer-funded institution, is doubling down on its decision to host a leading anti-Israel activist who has been accused of anti-Semitism as its honored commencement speaker next month, a move that has generated calls for New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to step in and cancel the address. CUNY is set to host Linda Sarsour, a leading voice in the anti-Israel movement who has been condemned by human rights groups for her rhetoric and promotion of terrorism against the Jewish state.
