The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS activists have created a local map in Massachusetts to target Jews for being Jews. CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.
Israel’s adversaries have always charged the country with misdeeds, but only relatively recently have these alleged evils coalesced into the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), modeled after the campaign against apartheid South Africa. As a detailed examination shows, the apartheid charges are utterly false. The activists who level these charges deserve no credibility.
Roth’s reaction to his rejection from Harvard's Kennedy School is simply the latest iteration of his penchant for blaming the Jews first, and asking questions later.
UPDATE: After publishing a 'Palestine' map erasing Israel, Haaretz editors amend the caption to appropriately attribute the false designation wiping Israel off the map to Sarendib, an organization which draws inspiration from a Hamas mass murderer.
Axios not only misleads on the cause of Airbnb's reversal of its boycott decision, but also omits an important component of the story: the overt discrimination involved.
We agree that facts must be central to any discussion of the BDS resolution and the conflict in general. This is why we’re disappointed at the student newspaper's silence over the basic factual errors and egregious omissions in the USG resolution itself. To apply the editorial board’s own words, the resolution “did not even pretend to acknowledge both sides of what, in the end, is a very nuanced situation.”
"Breaking Travel News" loses its compass, searching for the Jewish state's capital, but turning up in Tel Aviv. The early takeoff of the travel publication's World FIFA coverage crashes and burns with anti-Israel invective demonizing the "occupation" or "apartheid" state.
Colonialism, the Washington Post told readers in 2016, “isn’t something to celebrate.” Yet the Post fully embraces colonialism when it is in the service of an anti-Israel narrative. The newspaper’s recent reporting and commentary provide ample proof.
At Oberlin, the Jewish Studies department appears to be part of the problem, not part of the solution. But readers would never know this from the CJN's effusive coverage.
For all their high-minded rhetoric about free speech and expression, some “human rights” activists and lawyers seem zealously opposed to allowing debate. As a recent conference panel demonstrated, this is particularly true among those who seek to besmirch the Jewish state with substantively empty accusations of “apartheid” and “racism.” However, after efforts by CAMERA and others to counteract this behavior, purveyors of the libel – and their sponsors – now know they will not be left unchallenged.
Waters claims that he’s “absolutely not” antisemitic, yet he uses euphemistic language to argue against the existence of one tiny state in which Jews control their own destiny and can find refuge from persecution.
Associated Press immediately covered Booking.com's decision Friday to warn customers against Israeli settlements as being located in "occupied territory" and therefore posing "high risks to safety and human rights." Yet, two days after Booking.com's decision Saturday to apply warnings to all West Bank properties — Israeli and and Palestinian alike — AP's story on that critical reversal is still stuck at the gate.
