This is so concerning! @mstein81 details how a student government hearing on #BDS at @swarthmore quickly devolved into an #antisemitic hate fest. algemeiner.com/2019/03/12/bds…
The student government at @swarthmore conflated #Zionism with #Nazism, harked on old #antisemitic tropes, used inflammatory rhetoric reminiscent of #IlhanOmar and #DavidDuke.
Instead of condemning this bigotry, @swarthmore student government encouraged it. They sent an email proudly stating that the meeting should be a “precedent” for future meetings, and “an example of what SGO should strive to be.”

This seems like a good time to talk about what was in Marco Rubio's S1 bill - the first bill introduced in the new Congress, despite the govt shutdown. S1 was introduced in the Senate on January 3, 2019, and passed in the Senate on February 5th, 2019, with a vote of 77-23 #BDS
Within the bill are four titles, and all of them are controversial, though, of course, Title IV is the most controversial bc it supports amending the 1st Amendment to dictate which political boycotts are ok, and which are not.
Title I (Israel): #BDS
Title II (Jordan):

#USA politicians support #Israel not out of allegiance or the power of lobbyists. Aspects of this support include:

1. Annual >$3b aid packages, with regular supplements & fewer restrictions than aid to other nations
2. Support of governments #Israel likes, such as #Jordan #KSA
#Egypt, regardless of #humanrights abuses
3. Undermining/attacking governments, groups & nations it dislikes: #Iraq #Iran #Lebanon
4. Ignoring obligations to #Palestinians under intl law
5. Allowing "charities" to receive tax-deductible donations used to further #ethniccleansing
in #Palestine.
6. Various state & federal government agencies with preferences to #Israel, such as #police exchanges & subsidized trade delegations.
7. Voting for legislation punishing people who support #BDS, a non-violent advocacy tactic.

Whatever it is that causes #USA

@julie4nw @Rob_Bulll @NickyAACampbell @TrumpkinOut @TheMJAP @TheTrashiesUK @hopenothate @uaf @AntiRacismDay I support campaigning against anti-Semites like Nick Griffin. However, @julie4nw you appear to incite discrimination,hatred against Jews,Israelis & the Jewish State of #Israel by advocating & campaigning for antisemitic #BDS,like the NAZI boycott against Jewish businesses.

Former @SyracuseU faculty member Julia Ganson thinks we should teach our kids about the "good work of #Hamas."
At the same event, @AvaCarmeli suggests violence against innocent people could be a legitimate response to #Zionism.
Pat Carmeli, member of @SyracuseU's Peace Council, quotes terrorist apologist @normfinkelstein -- "Palestinians have the right to use violence... #Israel has no right to use violence."

@RachelRileyRR promotes the smears and lies that a black #Jewish person Jackie Walker is #Antisemitic Maajid Nawaz perpetuates the lie about the slave trade comments. Walker made a crude personal reply to an individual on FB about the slave trade.
Jackie Walker does not deny the comment but clarifies what she intended to say. It is historically correct! As for the rest of @MaajidNawaz comments. Israel is an apartheid state created by its govt which has allowed and witnessed atrocities against #Palestinians
This does not deny that Israel has been the subject of attacks. It raises questions as to why people were provoked to do so, and concerns about the disproportionate military retaliation. @MaajidNawaz peddles half truths and smears

There are four reasons to support the #BDS movement
You are a radical Islamist.
You support radical Islamic goals
You are an antisemite
Your are really, really stupid

A thread:
Asking if you support the boycott of Israel is *exactly* like asking if you support the destruction of Israel, only it is deliberately worded differently.

BDS talks about 'occupation' and 'settlements' but ONLY 1 of the 3 BDS aims has anything to do with the West Bank / Gaza.
One of the BDS aims even tries to impose on Israel's own democracy - talking about Israeli citizens, not 'occupied Palestinians'. It's the one they talk about the least because it is the most insidious.

#Roseanne also addressed the thousands of years war against the Jewish people that rises again every 70 years. She said BDS is the current incarnation of that war. (2) #AntiSemitism #Genocide #DestructionofJewishPeople #DestructionofJewishState #Holocaust #70YearCycle #BDS

Just heard @NickFerrariLBC on @LBC talking about the #BDS attempt to ask @BBC to boycott @Eurovision

The artists know that the BBC will never boycott the Eurovision in Israel - that's not the point of their letter.

A thread -
#BDS works by distorting the conversation. The artists wrote the letter so people will talk about it. Nick Ferrari - a solid guy - holds a discussion on whether or not the BBC should be politicised. To boycott or not boycott? BDS gets its airtime on a key radio station.
BDS is not a trial - it is a punishment. So the question becomes should the BBC punish Israel. Yes or no? A long list of other nations are mentioned - all deserving of punishment. Qatar, China, Russia. If we don't punish them - why punish Israel - see where this is going wrong?

I served my country. I saw the horrors war and I was scarred. I saw hate and fear in equal measure. I find it harder since my service to maintain my anger. I react inappropriately at times to the mildest of criticism. I have sought counselling but keep reliving the past.
I never judged someone by their religion, ethnicity, colour or gender. When someone was dying, injured or in distress I reached out to help. It was what I had signed up for it was what I trained for. I thought it would make a difference.
It did make a difference. It changed me it left me damaged because I could not being the suffering to an end. Today the UK feels like the War Zone I left behind. Division, distrust and hate seep from every sinew of our society.

1. And now I'm going to tell a story. Another false flag. This time is to force @POTUS not to take the US army out of #Syria.
They already have a lot of experience (8 years) to make chemical attacks to accuse the Syrian government.
OH, and they even have a manual.🧐😲🤨
@RandPaul
2. ISIS terrorist? 😲Seriously?🤨 Have they investigated? 🤓And they already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

Preliminary reports say at least six people were killed & 19 injured by the explosion. US official: 4 US army Killed & 3 US army wounded.

3. ISIS took responsability?😲Seriously?🤨Have they investigated?🤓They already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) took responsibility for the attack that reportedly targeted the US-led coalition’s patrol.

And ALSO, you can't make laws to support one side - Especially FOREIGN Countries.

OUTRAGEOUS: Golders Green mosque set to hold an 'interfaith' event with #Zionists in London.

What about Palestine?

#FreePalestine #London
Pro-Israel press - which defends Israeli regime crimes against Palestinians, Muslim and Christian Arabs - are promoting the event with great enthusiasm.

#GoldersGreen #Zionsm #freepalestine
The #GoldersGreen mosque has a history of cooperation with anti-Palestine #Zionist groups.

Pictured is Zionist, Joseph Cohen, the founder of the Israel Advocacy Movement standing next to Mustafa Field, a Muslim interfaith activist, during a visit to the Mosque in 2017.

THREAD 👉🏻 Things not addressed in Al Jazeera’s piece on Zionists, which itself reeks of antisemitism as I explain👇🏽:
1. Why #Qatar funded Al Jazeera is spying on US Jews on US soil.
2. Why AJ spent 1000s of $$$ throwing parties to get Jewish students drunk in order to smear them
3. Why pro-#BDS students are so obsessed with #Israel enough to run for student office just to demonize it.
4. Why Al Jazeera is so obsessed with Jews and actively promotes antisemitic conspiracy theories such as that Jews control the press and US government in this special.
5. Why they didn’t investigate the heavy foreign influence in BDS and the coordinated campaign against Israel.
6. Why SJP is whitewashed 4 their support for and associations w/ terrorism...as well as their well documented efforts to shut down free speech & harass Jewish students

There is an incredible amount of fake news being spread regarding Israel's fight against the anti-Semitic #BDS campaign and the case of #LaraAlqasem. It's time to set the record straight. Here are the facts: 1/5
Israel, like every democracy, has the right to prevent the entry of foreign nationals, especially those working to harm the country. Therefore we work to prevent the entry of those who promote the anti-Semitic BDS campaign, which calls for Israel's destruction #LaraAlqasem 2/5
#LaraAlqasem was President of a chapter of one of the most extreme and hate-filled BDS groups in the US- the SJP. SJP chapters have repeatedly engaged in anti-Semitic and violent activity with the goal of bullying and silencing students simply for their support of Israel. 3/5

Anyone who thinks BDS is not antisemitic should pay attention to what is happening in @uklabour
It starts with boycotting companies investing in Israel. They attacked Israeli produce in supermarkets
Then they attack Jewish run businesses and intimidate Jewish students on campus.
They moved on to bullying artists, hounding them online and scaring them into cancelling gigs in Israel
Now look - they sanction British MPs like @RosieDuffield1 just for supporting British Jews.
The aim is clear - they seek to alienate and isolate Jews wherever they are.
The deselection operation in Labour is a #BDS action
They want people to pay a price for supporting Jewish people.
You think it isn't BDS? It is EXACTLY BDS. Boycott Divestment SANCTION.
These are the same faces, carrying the same message. It's the same antisemitism
