About Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) was initiated in 2004 to contribute to the struggle for Palestinian freedom, justice and equality. PACBI advocates for the boycott of Israeli academic and cultural institutions, given their deep and persistent complicity in Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights as stipulated in international law.

    Curious about a double feature. There is a soon to be made documentary about waters obsession with Israel and Jews and evidently calls for a boycott of waters himself. The director is not an unknown and has done some good work.

      Said director/film maker is on public record, quoted in The Observer as saying, “To me, an attack on Israel is an attack against the Jewish people.” More hasbara.

        Roger Waters’ Jewish Problem Catches Eye of Award-Winning Filmmaker

        Mr. Halperin couldn’t be a more hateful and immoral Jewish supremacist (a.k.a. Zionist) if he tried.

        || Steve Grover: And Waters couldn’t be a more of a hateful and immoral anti-Jewish supremacist. ||

        His beef is with colonialist, (war) criminal and religion-supremacist Israel, not with the religion-based identity of Jewish. So, yes, he could be more of a hateful and immoral anti-Jewish supremacist.

        As could you. But I know that you’re doing your most bestest to anti-Semitically conflate all Jews with Israel and Israel with all Jews.

        Steve Grover: “And Waters couldn’t be a more of a hateful and immoral anti-Jewish supremacist.”

        Really? Is Waters in this universe a member of a group that supports keeping a majority of Jews expelled to maintain a regime dominated by Nonjews ? Or this is just one of your endless delusions and compulsory ,elf lies from your Kahane continuum and your reality is as upside down as usual?

        Maybe it is but waters is one of the top Palestinian hasbara specialists arounD so maybe the film maker has met his match.

        Exactly “Dabakr” you understand it perfectly. Halperin will end up looking stupid and exposing himself to legal action if he tries to slander Roger Waters.

      The classic Dersh attack….accuse those critical of Israel of being “obsessed” with Israel and Jews. This from a guy whose raison d’etre is defending the indefensible actions of the colonial, apartheid, settler state (and world’s number one welfare queen). I guess Dersh and his puppets can’t see the irony.

      Sure, he may be the pig; but oppressive, colonialist, (war) criminal and religion-supremacist “Jewish State” is the dog:

      And when you lose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown
      And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
      And it’s too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
      So have a good drown as you go down all alone
      Dragged down by the stone

      Also, Roger looks like he is in pain. He should quit sitting on his unicorn.
      Lazing in the foggy dew
      Sitting on a unicorn.
      No fair, you can’t hear me

        After skating for so many years on thin ice
        Zionists will be surprised when a crack in the ice
        Appears under their feet
        And they slip out of their depth and out of their minds
        With their fear flowing out behind them
        As they claw the thin ice

        Oh no..no… I read the Grover trilogy, oh no how sad, three times the self defeating same message…oh no, why play if thats all you’ve got, you get how this works…

        “And Waters ….” oh no…it may have to be the Hasbara Hannibal option, I wouldn’t open the door for the next hour or two….oh no…no, not that way Grover, hone man, you need to hone big time.

      If Roger is allready a pig then what do you call someone who keeps people under martial law for half a century in the post Nazi era or supports this? That’s right, a Zionist. That’s even worse.

    You can gauge the effectiveness of someone like Waters or something like BDS by seeing the mouth-foaming responses of our regular hasbarats. Quite effective apparently. You can also gauge the silliness of their arguments when they do things like make fun of Waters because he appears unshaven in a photograph. Is there anyone in the world who would read what Grover wrote and say to themselves, “Hey that’s a great argument. I’m persuaded!”?

      It’s not Mondo’s job to put a bottom on the Zionist barrel.

      And they’re dumb enough to think that is some kind of victory!

        Cunning, Mooser, but I caught you. Implying that your sock-puppet is an actual human, somewhere at the bottom of the Zionist barrel. You didn’t think I was paying attention.

      • Mooser
        July 13, 2017, 8:47 pm

        ” You didn’t think I was paying attention.”

        I hoped you weren’t. But sock-puppeting is a banning offense, so there is a high level of vigilance regarding this abdominal practice.

        I will be, in a way, sorry to see ol’ “Grover” go, but rules are rules.

      Welcome back ABC , you were missed. The old crew is still here, but we have an infestation of some hasbara types, who seem to be pushing Russia’s agenda, like the Trump WH. You will see for yourself, soon. Annie makes an appearance sometimes, we miss her too.

        Crouch under the desk, the Яussians Я here!

        If only heavens would make it so! Even with all their return to jungle capitalism and ruthless exploitation, a takeover by the Russian administration of the demolicanorepucrat-screwed US of A looks like our only chance of survival (and the only chance of ever conforming to international law.)

    • Kay24

      As I said the comments will show you exactly who pushes the Russian agenda, and praises the pariah nation, and the corrupting of our our political system, and hacking of American websites. It seems Putinski’s pests are infesting many websites.

        Well, as a child of the Cold War I can forego the use of “enemy” since we’ve succeeded in not throwing nuclear bombs at each other so far.

        But a certain amount of caution and coordination (within the US Gov) in dealing with Russia would not be amiss.

      • DaBakr
        July 14, 2017, 5:30 pm

        Confused, do you all hate Putin now or love him? Can’t keep track of left wing infatuations.

        Kay,

        Outbursts of hysteria could happen to the best of us but they would be based upon some at least microscopic kernel of fact. When one loses all control of oneself, though, not only without a shadow of evidence but even without imaginable cause to suspect, what is so shamelessly exposed is the insanity.

        What shocked me most in your rant was the part about the “corrupting of our our political system”. Hadn’t heard that one since Alice in Wonderland. That anyone could still say those words with a straight face in AD 2017 may be a reason for optimism: after all, innocence still lives on.

        KAY24- “As I said the comments will show you exactly who pushes the Russian agenda, and praises the pariah nation, and the corrupting of our our political system, and hacking of American websites.”

        So sayeth “tailgunner Kay.” Do you have any idea how out of touch with reality you are? Are you aware that the economies of France and California are 50% larger than Russia? Corrupting our political system? Compared to Wall Street, the MIC and AIPAC? You sound like a Democrat fundamentalist. Do you realize that, in comparison, you make some of these Zionists sound rational? A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

        Kay, what is this Russian agenda?

        So far, the the “pariah nation” has been accused of releasing e-mails that showed how the Clinton gang corrupted the US political system. What is next on the list of horrors to be inflicted on the poor American people?

        Geography lessons?
        Enforcing the correct use of commas?

        Or maybe [pause for dramatic effect]

        A national health service!
