    What BDS is really about



    This is one is a little long, for videos I post, anyway - just under 9 minutes - but Dershowitz presents a very different approach to BDS than is commonly thought. I think he may have hit the nail on the head - that it does not matter whether the boycotts, divestments or sanctions work, or even are enacted; rather, BDS seeks to mis-educate an entire generation in order to support the eradication of Israel as the world's lone Jewish state.

    And what happens to them in Revelations? They all get sent to hell, right? Except for a handful?

    Only those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. They have a choice.

    Did it ever occur to you that some of people objections to Israel is about something other than it's being Jewish?

    That country does some really shady shit and being a Jewish state isn't even on the radar. For me it's the spying, the assassinations, the goading of the US into war by Netanyahu and what was this about:


    According to the report, the Israeli specialist, Joel Zamel, “extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign,” and his firm “had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump.”

    And this:

    Black Cube: Inside the shadowy Israeli firm accused of trying to undermine the Iran deal

    I'm offended that you think anyone who dislikes the tactics of the country of Israel must be anti-Semitic. Israel does plenty of shit for people to get pissed about and it has nothing to do with being a Jewish state. It's because they butt into the politics of the US and never in a good way.

    Is Israel a Jewish state or theocracy.......or is it a democracy with no specific religious influence?

    Is it possible to criticize what Israel does objectively, based on its actions, not the religion of its people, without being accused of being anti-Semitic?


    Who wrote the following, and why?

    "The Arab, like all the Semites, is sharp minded and shrewd. All the townships of Syria and Eretz Yisrael are full of Arab merchants who know how to exploit the masses and keep track of everyone with whom they deal – the same as in Europe. The Arabs, especially the urban elite, see and understand what we are doing and what we wish to do on the land, but they keep quiet and pretend not to notice anything. For now, they do not consider our actions as presenting a future danger to them. … But, if the time comes that our people's life in Eretz Yisrael will develop to a point where we are taking their place, either slightly or significantly, the natives are not going to just step aside so easily."[12]

    "In his book "Wrestling with Zion," he urged the Jews "not to provoke the anger of the native people by doing them wrong...we should be cautious in our dealings with a foreign people among whom we returned to live, to handle these people with love and respect and, needless to say, with justice and good judgment. And what do our brothers do? Exactly the opposite! They were slaves in their Diasporas, and suddenly they find themselves with unlimited freedom, wild freedom that only a country like Turkey [the Ottoman Empire] can offer. This sudden change has planted despotic tendencies in their hearts, as always happens to former slaves ['eved ki yimlokh – when a slave becomes king – Proverbs 30:22]. They deal with the Arabs with hostility and cruelty, trespass unjustly, beat them shamefully for no sufficient reason, and even boast about their actions. There is no one to stop the flood and put an end to this despicable and dangerous tendency. Our brothers indeed were right when they said that the Arab only respects he who exhibits bravery and courage. But when these people feel that the law is on their rival's side and, even more so, if they are right to think their rival's actions are unjust and oppressive, then, even if they are silent and endlessly reserved, they keep their anger in their hearts. And these people will be revengeful like no other."[13]

    I know they're sitting in the middle of a nest of people who hate them for religious reasons, but duping the US into systematically using our military to conquer each and every country that hates them is expensive and bloody for our troops.

    Fucking religion. All of 'em. It never ends with the war and the suffering in the name of God.
