Brazen Support for BDS: A Troubling First in the New Congress

Last week, new members of the US Congress were sworn in. While there were a few “firsts” to be celebrated, there was one that should not be: the first time that a member of Congress has proudly and openly endorsed the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.

Both Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar now brazenly support the BDS movement, although they equivocated on the issue during their campaigns.

The founders of the BDS movement sometimes try to claim that they support a “two-state solution,” but in reality, they seek the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state. Why? Because the boycott movement calls for all Palestinian refugees to be absorbed into Israel, which would mean the end of the Jewish state.

I have no problem with refugees returning to a future Palestinian state. However, the return of the Palestinian refugees to Israel, now numbering in the millions (because the UN has uniquely assigned refugee status to descendants of Palestinians), would mean an end to the Jewish majority, and thus Jewish self-determination in Israel.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
