OPRAH JUMPS ON THE ANTI BDS BANDWAGON

After a BDS attempt to ban Jewish-American reggae singer Matisyahu from the Rototom Sunsplash festival, it has become known that media mogul Oprah Winfrey also turned away a BDS request earlier this month.

Executives at the Oprah Winfrey magazine refused to receive activists who wanted her to reject Israeli diamonds.

Denying the Israel-basher — kudos to Oprah and other principled stars

For years, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has worked to make Israel an international pariah. Happily, it’s started seeing some serious pushback.

In Spain, Jewish-American reggae singer Matisyahu did indeed perform Saturday at the Rototom Sunsplash festival. The organizers re-invited him after they’d canceled — a disinvitation pushed by the BDS crew, which had insisted he endorse Palestinian statehood.

An international uproar forced the festival’s hand — after all, organizers (and BDSers) hadn’t insisted on a litmus test for any non-Jewish performers.

No less than Oprah Winfrey stood up to the thugs, too. A BDS “delegation” showed up at her magazine’s New York offices this month, carrying a letter urging Oprah to publicly reject Israeli jeweler Lev Leviev’s products.

The star had worn Leviev diamonds on the cover of O magazine’s May issue, the 15th anniversary edition. But the BDSniks smear Leviev with charges of stealing Palestinian land and committing human-rights abuses in Angola.

Neither Oprah nor her executives would even meet with the agitators. They even refused to accept the letter.

In October, New Jersey’s second-favorite native sons, Bon Jovi, will end their current tour in Tel Aviv — rejecting BDS pressure to cancel the concerts after the dates were announced in the spring.

Support for Israel even popped up in Paris this month. Mayor Anne Hidalgo dedicated an artificial beach to Tel Aviv — despite intense opposition from the BDS movement and its sympathizers in the French media.

Across the globe, too many in media, the arts and politics are happy to go with the flow and pile on Israel. It’s refreshing to see stars — especially American ones — standing up to the bullies by taking truly principled stands.

Bottom line is ….. BOYCOTT OPRAH!

    Dr. King would be so ashamed of her. She is nothing but a fake, phony hypocrite. She’s all about civil rights for African American people but turns a blind eye to Palestinian people’s rights. Even helps the oppressor of the Palestinian people commit their every day crimes.

    Oprah can keep getting face lifts till her ears meet in the back of her head. But it won’t ever cover up that sell out fake soul of hers.

    Every time I see her face on TV from now on I’ll have to turn the channel or risk loosing my most recent meal.

    Someone needs to explain Israel’s alliance with Apartheid South Africa to her. Then they might explain how Israel’s feel about negro immigrants.

    In America billionaires have certain obligations if they wish to retain their billions.

    o Don’t say a single word about the theft of Palestine
    o Don’t say a word against our continuously criminal “government”
    o Refuse to see the evil of :vaccination”
    o Pretend they are not witnessing the destruction of our beloved country by our Political Class; BOTH Parties.

    Oprah lives for, works for, is for Bilderberg, CFR, Bohemian Grove-ites, etc. She could care less about human rights…it’s not how she ‘ticks’.
