Israel and BDS Movement

Recommended Posts

  No other country in the world is singled out like this, just a tad different.  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34786607

We regret that the EU has chosen, for political reasons, to take such an exceptional and discriminatory step, inspired by the boycott movement, particularly at this time, when Israel is confronting a wave of terrorism targeting any and all of its citizens," Israel's foreign ministry said, referring to a recent wave of stabbings of Israelis by Palestinians.

"It is puzzling and even irritating that the EU chooses to apply a double standard concerning Israel, while ignoring that there are over 200 other territorial disputes worldwide."

Interesting that the French gov’t had already implemented this but had to suspend it due  to a lawsuit.  France adopted this In 2016,  along with other countries, but the EU had no way to punish countries that refused to add the labels.   https://www.timesofisrael.com/french-government-suspends-demand-for-west-bank-product-labeling/

Ironic, considering European Countries and the UN looked the other way when Arab Countries ethnically cleansed nearly 1,000,000 Sephardi Jews from North Africa and the Middle East in the aftermath of the 1948 War Of Independence.

Shady's comparison was fair, and historically accurate.  

What is historically accurate about a projection/assumption?

But you’re cool with products/services produced on what some consider native land but exported as Canadian.

You do not see the parallels between Jews returning to Israel and overtaking Palestinian land, and Europeans arriving in Canada, an overtaking First Nations land?

Instead of boycotting Israel, perhaps you should look in the mirror, and clean your own back yard.  Considering most countries are or have been guilty of the exact same thing that Israel is guilty of, maybe boycott buying any good, and move to Northern BC, and live in a remote cabin with no electricity.

The whole Palestinian Cause relies on the hope that Westerners simply do not remember the history of the region.

Mufti? What Mufti? What's a Mufti??

Alright, reading comprehension is not your strong point. It's not about the parallels, it's about Shady assumption/projection.

....For many Western supporters of Islam, freedom of speech must take a backseat to Muslims feeling offended.  I don't think they have fully thought this through to its logical end.  Freedom of speech has allowed religion to be criticized - rightly so.  Sharia law insists that Islam is not to be criticized and to do so means death.  A lot of mainstream media is towing the Islamic line.

It's interesting to watch how every time there's a major terrorist act, the media is quick to call in the "backlash ploy." - innocent Western Muslims suddenly fear a "backlash" - neatly  shifting focus away from real acts of violence against non-Muslims by Muslims, to imaginary acts of violence, again making Muslims the victims in even the terrorism they themselves commit.  Victimhood is huge in Islam.

This is what the Palestinians are doing.

Right on.    It's the suppression of speech which favours Islam and that people do perceive what is happening as towing the Islamic line.  They see double standards regularly where any other religion can be attacked with impunity with no reprisals.

Attributing something to someone which was not said by that person is also weakness. That's what Shady did, and that is what you failed to comprehend.

From the Babylonbee

https://babylonbee.com/news/ilhan-omar-withdraws-support-from-bill-to-save-the-earth-after-learning-thats-where-israel-is

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal hit a snag when it lost the support of another freshman representative, Ilhan Omar. Omar had been an enthusiastic supporter of the Green New Deal and wanted to save the earth, but then she noticed something very disturbing when looking at a map of the earth: Earth is the planet on which Israel resides.

“You’ve been hypnotized by the Jews!” Omar accused a surprised Ocasio-Cortez. Omar then ripped up a copy of the Green New Deal. “This is just a plot to help Israel keep existing! Did AIPAC pay you off?”

What is The Babylon Bee?

The Babylon Bee is the world’s best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims. We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life.

The Babylon Bee was created ex nihilo on the eighth day of the creation week, exactly 6,000 years ago. We have been the premier news source through every major world event, from the Tower of Babel and the Exodus to the Reformation and the War of 1812. We focus on just the facts, leaving spin and bias to other news sites like CNN and Fox News.

If you would like to complain about something on our site, take it up with God.

Unlike other satire sites, everything we post is 100% verified by Snopes.com.

Things BDS supporters like...

#1 Hitler...he was a good man...keen on killing the Jews and bringing about the Judenfrei state run by the al-Husseini Clan in British Palestine.

I mean...what's not to like? The Third Reich and BDS...hand in hand through history.

So what was the point of using a satire piece without indicating it is a satire piece?

Just forgot or missed it, so what...   it's easily identifiable as satire, no one would believe it really.
