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?
Half the callers (because #LBC must play fair) all get to use words like 'illegal' and 'Apartheid'. Listeners are left with a choice. Should the BBC be politicised and punish Israel or not. It is a win-win for the BDS campaign. Israel as guilty seeking clemency
NOBODY talks about the two underlying problems.

1. What if Israel isn't guilty? Because it isn't

There is no Apartheid in Israel. The UK, France and other European nations are far more guilty of 'bad stuff', than Israel ever will be. Should we boycott ourselves?
2. What is the end goal of those seeking punishment?

The end goal of BDS is the end of Israel. No ifs no buts. To implement all three of the BDS demands would bring about a very bloody end to Israel. Many key anti-Israel activists openly admit this.
So the question Nick really asked is 'should the BBC support the destruction of Israel?'

Once it is voiced, you realise how absurd & offensive it is. That question should never be given airtime anywhere.
Israel is a functioning democracy living within a sea of hostile despotic nations.
END. A beacon of freedom in the darkness. Big surprise - they have enemies!

We should celebrate in Israel, with the Israelis because they won last year and have a nation worth celebrating.
