    Another German Court rules in favor of supporters of BDS Movement

    On Friday 13 September 2019, the Administrative Court of Cologne (Verwaltungsgericht Köln) instructed the City of Bonn to admit the German-Palestinian Women’s Association to the annual Bonn Culture and Encounter Festival (“Vielfalt!–Bonner Kultur -und Begegnungsfest”). The City had excluded the association because of its support for the BDS Movement for Palestinian rights. According to the Court, the City of Bonn has “not even remotely” demonstrated that any justification for this exclusion exists.

    so....these 'hood' refugee camps.

    how come, ptjinxmore -- for the sake of the children -- that no one, like abbas, hamass, etc palestinian government - doesn't plead with the world to help fix up these deplorable refugee camps? [​IMG]

    ..in this day and age...they should call the crew from this old house. with all the builders and painters around the world AND WHAT THEY CAN DO - why ? no money in the budget ? but [hamasS] has plenty of $$ for weaponry, and shovels and kites.... and abbas, has plenty of petty cash on hand for his lavish lifestyle........................

    In the war against BDS, the most recent development in academia was the Department of Education censure of Duke University and the University of North Carolina for the misuse of Federal Title VI funds, prompted by complaints over a BDS related event in the spring. Title VI of the Higher Education Act is intended to support foreign language instruction and US national security needs, but has become a slush fund for tendentious Middle East Studies education and programming aimed at college students and K-12.

    The Education Department’s letter to the Duke-UNC Center for Middle East Studies complained that fewer than 1,000 students were taking Middle East language courses, while almost 7,000 were enrolled in Middle East Studies courses with “little or no relevance to Title VI.” The complaint also criticized the lack of focus on religious minorities in the Middle East and the near exclusive emphasis on Islam, particularly for K-12 teachers.

    VOICED BY ACADEMICS REGARDING THE ALLEGED “CHILLING EFFECT ON ACADEMIC FREEDOM” AND BY BDS ADVOCATES, WHO CHARACTERIZED THE MOVE AS “ANTI-PALESTINIAN.”

    THE INVESTIGATION COMES AFTER A RECENT STUDY DEMONSTRATED THAT ARAB AND MUSLIM COUNTRIES HAD DONATED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO AMERICAN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN THE PAST DECADE, WITH OVER $1.5 BILLION FROM QATAR ALONE. THE IMPACT OF THESE DONATIONS IS DIFFICULT TO MEASURE, BUT THE DEFERENCE AND OBSEQUIOUSNESS SHOWN BY UNIVERSITIES AND ACADEMICS TO DONORS GENERALLY IS WELL KNOWN.

    She's very sorry she appeared to fraternize with the Joos. Lesson learned. https://twitter.com/AmandaPresto/status/1179768610551746562 …

    Demi Lovato apologizing for her recent trip to Israel. The singer has also disabled the comments on her Instagram pics from Israel.

    [​IMG]


    Just fyi, one pic she posted I saw yesterday was her meeting with special-needs kids.

    This is what she's feeling made to apologize for. Bringing smiles to the faces of Jewish children with special needs.

    BDS is a genuinely cruel way to express hatred of Jews.

    Palestinian rights groups accused the Education Department of intimidation and infringing on academic freedom.

    “They really want to send the message that if you want to criticize Israel, then the federal government is going to look very closely at your entire program and micromanage it to death,” said Zoha Khalili, a staff lawyer at Palestine Legal, one such group. The department’s intervention, she added, “sends a message to Middle Eastern studies programs that their continued existence depends on their willingness to toe the government line on Israel.”​
