Go to any Israeli newspaper’s site or to any zionist Website and you will surely find something about the growing BDS Movement in the headlines. It has become zion’s greatest dilemma since the creation of their state in 1948.

The latest appeared yesterday …. but the ‘war’ continues today with THIS from Ynet News.

The wring is on the wall!

The writing is on the wall!

The biggest problem with the BDS movement is that it isn’t an armed conflict but a conflict of the consciousness, an asymmetric war for public opinion, on the base of legitimacy and perceived support. The weapons are claims of human rights abuses – mostly construed, sometimes altogether fictional; the battleground is in the west – in the liberal states to which Israel belongs.


BDS is an asymmetric

war for world  opinion

On June 2, 1964, in one of the most beautiful places in Jerusalem- the seven arches hotel on the Mount of Olives – the PLO was established by Ahmed Shukri and the Arab nations.

This date is critical when dealing with the emergent threat of the global BDS movement. It was three years before the occupation of Judea and Samaria, three years before the State of Israel, in hindsight, turned into a cause of instability in the Middle East. Three years before the Palestinians (according to the anti-Israel narrative) became the nation being oppressed by Israel.

The purpose of the PLO was – among other things – to carry out an armed struggle against Israel. The aim this struggle was not to establish their own independent Palestinian state, but to eradicate the independent Jewish state that had survived the war of 1948, against all odds.

This story is the basis of the current battle against BDS. Anyone who thinks that this is a movement against the State of Israel is missing the point; this battle is against the Israeli phenomenon as a whole.

The biggest problem with the BDS movement is that it isn’t an armed conflict but a conflict of the consciousness, an asymmetric war for public opinion, on the base of legitimacy and perceived support. The weapons are claims of human rights abuses – mostly construed, sometimes altogether fictional; the battleground is in the west – in the liberal states to which Israel belongs.

The term asymmetric warfare was meant to explain what happens when a large military fights guerilla movements and terror organizations. The average Israeli knows the limits of strength; Hamas uses civilians and children as human shields – everything to keep the IDF from being able to shoot.

Terror organizations don’t have rules and moral boundaries in warm and we are seeing the same characteristics in the fight against BDS. In this battle there are no rules, no moral boundaries, no truths and no lies.

In May 2002, exactly 13 years ago, an IDF drone inadvertently captured a staged funeral procession in Jenin. On the stretcher lay a young Palestinian boy wrapped in a flag, surrounded by wailing women. It was another indictment against the IDF after Operation Defensive Shield, while Israel was undergoing a slurry of condemnation from around the world for a different massacre that never happened. At least this was the case until the stretcher fell and the young man tumbled off, jumped up and disappeared behind a corner – powered by his dead legs.

After this sad occasion came Jenin, Jenin, the duplicitous movie by Mohammed Bochri that claimed to tell the story of the massacre in the eponymous refugee camp, and which quickly became a hit with the organizations active within the BDS campaign. This popularity was akin to that for claims that Israel committed genocide against the Bedouins in the Negev in 2013, in reference to the resettlement plan. The same regard was held for Yasser Arafat’s claims that Israel was poisoning the water, or his wife’s claims that Israel had poisoned him. There are always claims that turn into facts when it comes to BDS supporters.

A sovereign, democratic state cannot lie, nor invent or claim facts without real proof. There are times when officials do make mistakes, there are times when we don’t talk about it, but Israel has boundaries – and you can’t play dirty in a battle for the conscience.

It’s a paradox but the vanguard of this battle against Israel is run by educated people, liberals with the theoretical ability to be self-critical.

Every year, more than 160 campuses worldwide mark Israeli apartheid week, targeting the horrendous Israelis, sometimes including comparisons to the Nazis, or pamphlets on invented genocides.

In the spring of 2010, Berkley became the first university in which the student senate tried to declare a boycott against companies trading with Israel. A year earlier, a Norwegian holding company became the first to pull investments from Israeli company Elbit systems; additionally a retirement fund pulled its money from shares in Africa Israel as part of the boycott.

A group of artists worried by the pull from Roger Waters decided to cancel shows in Israel. The success of the BDS movement is marginal in economic terms, however carries weight in that it creates a virtual world in which good is bad and bad is good.

Some of the members of the Palestinian organizations are Jews and even Israelis who want a different leadership – not seeing that the motivation behind BDS is to create a different state.

Israel is not perfect – there is room for improvement – but the distance between the delegitimizing claims and reality is the distance between a lie and the truth. We fight it primarily by being educated on what is really happening, and what really happened in the past.

    “The weapons are claims of human rights abuses – mostly construed, sometimes altogether fictional”

    I am sure the 1.8 Million Palestinians that have been forced out of their homes and off their lands at gun point and imprisoned in the Gaza strip would beg to differ. The thousands of dead women and children and the 10’s of thousands of wounded after repeated bombardment of the Gaza strip by Israel beg to differ. The hundreds of thousands of DEAD Palestinians, victims of “fictional” Jewish bullets, bombs, starvation and deprivation since 1945 would beg to differ as well. The half a Million plus refugees forced out of the Palestine completely would beg to differ. And of course the fact that the “state of Israel” has doubled in size while Palestine has disappeared since its “creation” is just a fiction as well. The horrors of apartheid in Palestine (what now suddenly Israel is calling their own) and Jerusalem are obviously construed or fictitious according to this author. As for practicing deception and betrayal, no country in the world does it better than Israel.

    This article is a grotesque, twisted, delusional, in fact almost pathological attempt at defending war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid. Ironically articles such as these actually serve as further indictment of the crimes of Israel. These are the actions of a desperate, evil, criminal, rogue terrorist State. This is not just my opinion, it is the conclusion of multiple international courts, the UN and virtually every government on the planet outside of Israel and the US. The bds movement is such a threat because it does the one thing that Israel cannot allow to happen; it brings the truth about Israel’s crimes out into the open for the whole world to see. It creates a world that suddenly is conscious of the evils and dangers of Israel. And Israel knows that in the end you cannot defend the indefensible if everyone knows you are doing it.

    And for the record; Hamas was and is the democratically elected representatives of the people of Palestine. The elections were conducted under international supervision. Within 6 months Israel had either killed or imprisoned many of the legally elected officials. Why? not because they wanted to destroy Israel, but because they wanted a free and independent Palestinian State. Israel also blackmailed the US into declaring Hamas a “terrorist” organization. In the ensuing years Israel placed spies and agents in Hamas further crippling its efforts.

    In short, what the Israeli government has done, and is doing to the Palestinian people IS PERPETRATING A HOLOCAUST.

    @Danny not sure what you mean, but DDearborn is correct; the article is full of holes and lies. Searching the record, I can corroborate all the info DDearborn says, yet I have real troubles corroborating much of the info from the article.

    This from the leader of the Israeli Natzi Party that has nuclear weapons, refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, refuses IAEA inspections, was caught trying to sell a clandestine nuclear weapon to the former government of South Africa, and a history of constant belligerence to neighboring nations. Bibi demands the world get a better deal from Iran, which HAS signed the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, DOES allow IAEA inspections, and has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years!

    These narcissistic idiots will never see that the BDS movement is in direct response to their criminal activity.

    World Opinion:
    About the Jewish people of the world
    About the people of Israel
    About the criminal element that
    a) pretends to be an Israeli
    b) pretends to be a Jew
    c) or both
    When in reality it is the banking sector that is hiding behind both identities & holding on for dear life because the money is free & abubdant & the power trip is thrilling.
