Sometimes things are so perfectly timed, you know that they were meant to be. Such is the case with three things that crossed my radar yesterday when I finally got a chance to spend a few hours at my computer. The first is a wonderful image from Michal:
The second is an article about legislators who have finally had enough of the BDS movement, at least insofar as it seeks to make Israel an academic pariah. The goal is to boycott the boycotters — that is, to put such pressure on those who would boycott Israel that the boycotters themselves must back off.
And the third thing is Evelyn Gordon’s observation that, while the BDS movement is full of sound it fury, it may actually be signifying a whole lot less than anyone realized:
One of the BDS movement’s greatest assets is the fact that its every success gets massive media coverage while its failures (ScarJo excepted) are largely ignored. That’s why anyone following the news in recent weeks would probably conclude that boycott, divestment, and sanctions were rapidly gaining ground. Yet in reality, BDS has suffered several major failures lately–and some of these failures bode ill for its future.
Read the rest here.
These two reports about BDS failures are not grounds for complacency. As we know, the Left has the tenacity of a pit bull. It never lets go. Ever. If you’d like to help de-fang the movement, StandWithUs is as good an organization as one can find for that purpose.
