Thank you Rabbi Michael Davis, I also listened to the whole sermon by Rabbi Stern ! Nothing could be more ‘odious ‘ than invasion , war and dispossession !
Of course BDS is not antisemitic , as the real meaning of semitic has noting to do with bloodline, or ethnicity ! The people who speak the semitic languages : Arabic, Aramaic , Hebrew, et al !
I happen to be as semitic, also even more semitic that most Israelis who are not the original Arabic/Hebrew speakers of HISTORIC Palestine from centuries ago who lived together peacefully and unperturbed till the 20th century and its malicious wars and in/ ter/ in/ ventions ! They were called Palestinians , arab and /or jewish !
Thank you annie for your input, always passionate and empathic towards Palestinians as I am , ‘shaken’ since age 12 , born in Jerusalem and unceremoniously given the cruel boot of exile in May ’48 with most of my people !
