CAMERA Op-Ed "A Conference Of Falsehoods"


CAMERA's International Letter-Writing Director's Op-Ed "A Conference Of Falsehoods" in The Philadelphia Inquirer:

Starting Friday, PennBDS, a university-recognized group, will sponsor the 2012 National Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Conference on campus. The BDS movement attempts to delegitimize the state of Israel through false accusations and dishonest scholarship masquerading as human rights advocacy.

PennBDS and the BDS movement claim to be interested in promoting, "the growing global campaign to boycott, divest from and sanction (BDS) the State of Israel until it complies with its obligations under international and human rights law." That's what it says on the PennBDS website.

However, if PennBDS is truly concerned with such violations, it is notable that it does not focus on blatant human rights abusers and oppressors such as North Korea, China, Sudan, or Iran.

....but only on the Jewish State.

Why not point out that this international law argument is stated very generally, in very general terms?? If they claim "illegal occupation," then they are wrong on several grounds. Anyhow, all of the international bodies, such as the UN, are corrupt, run by the large, compact Arab & Muslim minorities, which --because of their cohesiveness, at least at the UN-- can dominate all decision-making [through log-rolling].

What are PennBDS' actions towards the human rights abuses and slaughter of Syrian citizens that is currently underway? Five thousand people have been murdered under the Assad regime. Where is PennBDS?

For PennBDS, only Israel should be boycotted for human rights abuses. Apparently they consider Syria, Iran, Sudan, Egypt and a few other nations can abuse human rights all they want but don't boycott them. Right?
Wrong. PennBDS needs some remedial classes.

Note that on both black/white posters there is the notorios Hezbollah propagandist - the "Green Helmet". Read about him in the excellent write-up by EU Referendum guy -
