"One state is enough," a March 4 commentary by an organizer of the discredited Harvard University anti-Israel conference, exemplifies a chronic problem on The Washington Post's Op-Ed page -- hospitality to unrebutted anti-Israel offerings by outside contributors.
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.

High-ranking officials in the Presbyterian Church (USA) ignored repeated private warnings about the anti-Semitism broadcast by one of its “peacemaking” groups. The result is ongoing controversy and demonization of Jews and Israel.

Two BDS activists in California are digging themselves into an ever deeper hole. Emily Alma kills off a living Palestinian girl in her effort to cover for her compatriot, who lied that "trigger-happy watchtower guards" killed two Palestinian children.
Sandra O'Neill, an activist in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign who manufactures grotesque falsehoods about Israel, has managed to peddle her fabrications, including the shooting deaths of small Palestinian children, to a Chico newspaper.
