  • Israel gets away with it because it is a global arms supplier -- Halper
    • You forgot one small thing - Saudi Arabia does not constantly call for the extermination of Israel like Iran does.

  • Chomsky supports portions of BDS agenda, but faults others, citing realism and int'l consensus
    • Bottom line: Beinart's Zionist BDS is progressing, anti-Israel BDS is failing.

      EU is sanctioning settlements , that church in the US is divesting from companies which profit from the occupation and at the same time supports Israel's right to exist and the 2SS. Signs of progressing Zionist BDS.

      Best indicator for failing anti-israel BDS - the list of performing international artists in Israel had never been larger than of this year: Rolling Stones, lady gaga, Neil young, beyonce are just few of the names.
      Other indicators: no Israeli companies within the green line have suffered from BDS till now, the Israeli economy is actually growing (although the majority of citizens' personal income remain the same but that's a worldwide capitalist malady)

      That is because the good people of the world know that the occupation of the West Bank is very immoral but at the same time the Palestinians' demands for the entire land of Israel/Palestine (by right of return and other means) are unreasonable and immoral because they will lead to a counteracting injustice to the Israeli people. No nation in the world would have sustained following a huge immigration/repatriation wave of a rival ethnicity.

  • The case for a BDS coalition
    • Good article.

      Sometimes it feels like BDS activists hate progressive Zionists more than they hate right wing zionists
