‘Jews are our dogs’: Anti-Semitic chant at Mississauga rally being investigated by police

What BDS is all about...

Palestinians are called names all the time. Do I detect a double standard?
Let's see, are there protests in Ontario
where people are shouting something similar,
like "Blacks are our dogs" or "Muslims are our dogs" - which are not investigated?

Show me.
Deflection.

Israel/Palestine is not a religious conflict. The opposition or resolution of the conflict has nothing to do with religion. BDS has nothing to do with religion.

Typical, you just make up claims and refuse to prove.

What kind of jerk looks for excuses to shout "Jews are Our Dogs"??!

Incredible, and you post a video contradicting what you claim.
And Antisemitism is clearly not reserved to only religious persecution,

It's interesting why would someone try to sweep such a large aspect under the carpet,
with these repetitive none sense slogans the go against most basic common sense and knowledge regarding the conflict. Doe it mean that if it had much to with religion, the cause is illegitimate?

But lets test the claim -
  • If BDS narrows Antisemitism to narrowly religious hatred, and Jews a religious sect, then by definition their opposition is religious.

  • If the conflict has "nothing to do with religion" as BDS like to say,how come they deny Jews religious rights in their most sacred sites,and the 2nd most prevalent slogan in their protests being "Allahu Akbar"?

So much for "nothing to do with religion"...

Why do BDS-holes have to lie about their organization?

Anti-Israel activists are upset that the Democratic platform does not include anti-Israel language. They point to a poll last year that, they claim, says that a plurality of Americans and 2/3 of Democrats support cutting aid to Israel.

A look at the poll shows how pollsters can easily manipulate the people to say what they want.

Data for Progress (whose very name shows that they intend to manipulate data for their political purposes) asked two questions:

Detention of BDS coordinator in Israel is a “violation,” EU says

The European Union has broken its silence about Israel’s arbitrary detention of the general coordinator of the BDS – boycott, divestment and sanctions – movement.

Mahmoud Nawajaa was seized from his home near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank during a night raid by Israeli soldiers on 30 July.

“We are following this case very closely through our channels and contacts on the ground,” the EU said in a statement emailed to The Electronic Intifada on Friday.

“The reasons for the arrest and the charges brought against Mr. Nawajaa are not yet known,” the EU added. It acknowledged that “no formal charges have been issued and he continues to be prevented from seeing his lawyer.”

Israel lobby loses latest appeal against American Studies Association



An incessant Israel lobby-backed attempt to censor and punish the American Studies Association over its support of an academic boycott of Israel has once again failed in court.

On 19 June, a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, unanimously affirmed an earlier dismissal of a lawsuit brought against the ASA, its executive director and eight members of faculty by other current and former members of the ASA.

Israel advocates filed the initial lawsuit in 2016 after the ASA endorsed the academic boycott of Israeli institutions three years prior.

Missouri passes anti-BDS bill, expected to become law


The Missouri state legislature passed a bill SB 739, the "Anti-Discrimination Against Israel Act.".

The state’s House of Representatives passed the measure, 95-40, while the state Senate did so, 28-1, on April 30. Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, is expected to sign it into law, which would make Missouri the 28th state to enact such a measure to combat the anti-Israel BDS movement.

In litigation challenging a Texas law blocking state agencies from hiring companies boycotting Israel, the Fifth Circuit ordered dismissal of the case Monday but declined to decide if the law is constitutional.

Bahia Amawi, a Palestinian U.S. citizen, had worked for the Pflugerville Independent School District for nearly a decade as a speech therapist for kindergarteners when the school district offered to renew her contract for the 2018-2019 school year.

She refused due to a new clause in the contract requiring her to certify that she does not boycott Israel nor would she do so while working for the school district.

Texas joined 25 other states with similar legislation when lawmakers passed House Bill 89 and Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed it in 2017

The challenge was thrown out because Texas changed the law to not apply to them any more.

führer Omar is a laughable joke.

Too bad, really. Omar could lead by example. Contracting Wuhan virus leading to death would make him a martyr.

Come on, Omar. Take one for the cause.

BDS Leader Widely Mocked for Saying It’d Be Ok to Take Israeli-Developed Coronavirus Vaccine



Top BDS activist Omar Barghouti has been widely mocked on social media after he said that it would be permissible for boycotters of Israel to use an Israeli-developed vaccine for the coronavirus.

“If you use medical equipment from Israel — it’s not a problem. Cooperating with Israel against the virus — to begin with, we do not consider it normalization,” he said in an Arabic-language Facebook live broadcast.
