Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (#BDS) has zero economic impact on Israel. Israel's doing just fine. What it does, is target Jews on campus and Jewish businesses with harassment, vandalism, and worse. The only thing BDS does is give "legitimate" cover to anti-Jewish campaigns.
But let me ask this: if #BDS advocates can refrain from anti-Semitic attacks, tell me what the end game of BDS is? What would have to happen for a boycott to end? A withdrawal to pre-'67 borders? An end to Israel? Only #BDS advocates contribute to this thread please. I'm curious.
When I was in college in the '80s, I participated in anti-apartheid rallies. Because, you know, there really was apartheid in S. Africa. The end game to sanctions was an end to apartheid. It worked. Seeing as there is no actual apartheid in Israel, what is the #BDS end game?
I'm going to sign off. It's past my bedtime. I'll look at the results in the morning. RIP my mentions.
