 Today is the 85 anniversary of the BDS movement

In 1933, Nazi Germany staged a daylong national boycott of Jewish-owned businesses

Who knew today is the 85 anniversary of the BDS movement? I wonder if there is some sort of ceremony on American university campuses to commemorate the event?

Walking in the footsteps of monsters! (they could call it)

It is really not that difficult to trace this toxic ideology right back to Haj Amin al-Husseini and the Nazi's. American campuses celebrate the same Nazi tactics used since the 1930s to target the Jewish community. Why is this? This is open source intelligence, common knowledge!!

With the f--ing "nazi" hysteria sweeping the nation this epistemological realism is strangely ignored.

Things that make ya go Hmmmmm . (C.C. music factory)

On the contrary, Haj Amin al-Husseini was Palestinian nationalism’s fiercest opponent. In his day, the word “Palestinian” referred exclusively to Zionist Jews

His jihad was to destroy their movement and with that goal in mind murdered hundreds in the Arab Revolt (1936-39).

Under the Turks for four centuries prior to WWI (1914-18), there had been no administrative district called “Palestine” and no Arab/Muslim called himself a “Palestinian.”

The post-war Paris Peace Conference that opened in January 1919 led to the creation of the League of Nations that in turn drafted its Mandate for Palestine in language making clear that “Palestine” at that time did not exist. It had to be created and was explicitly defined as “a Jewish homeland.”

This, of course, did not sit well with Husseini, not yet the Grand Mufti but still a Muslim priest. In October 1919, he established a newspaper in Jerusalem called Al-Suria Al-Janubia (Southern Syria) whose title was its raison d’etre: to combat the creation of Palestine because, while the name meant something to Jews and Christians as a synonym from their shared Bible’s Promised Land, it never meant anything to Muslims. It is never mentioned in the Koran and Muslims never governed such a territory with that name.

The Arabs had always called the region Bilad al-Sham (Damascus territory), and on March 8, 1920, Husseini even attended in Damascus the coronation of prince Faisal of the Hedjaz (Alec Guinness in the Hollywood epic Lawrence of Arabia) as king of Syria. That same day in Jerusalem, an agent of Husseini’s delivered a note to British military governor Ronald Storrs demanding that the new British-French dividing line separating Palestine from traditional Syria be erased. Simultaneously, Haj Amin’s cousin Musa Kazim, mayor of Jerusalem, started a riot in the Holy City in support of that desire.

And this was Husseini’s crusade for the next 40 years, into the 1960s. His resistance to Zionism was always exclusively religious in content and tone. What is called today “Palestinian nationalism” had nothing to do with it.

In this his politics were no different from those of the Muslim Brotherhood established in Egypt in 1928 in reaction to the radical de-Islamization of Turkey under Ataturk. Serious Muslims experience nationalism as a threat to Islam.

What devout Muslims want is a one-world caliphate, not another secular, Western- style nation-state, as Ataturk did.

Contrary to Paldiel, today’s “Palestinian national movement” dates to an Arab League meeting in Cairo on March 29, 1959, when Gamal Abdel Nasser suggested that the generic term “Arab refugees” be replaced. It had been in use since 1949 because so many of them had been migrant workers from all over the Arab world working in Eretz Yisrael at the time of Israel’s War of Independence and there was nothing “Palestinian” about them.

Nasser thus wanted to replace “Arab refugees” with kiyan falastini (a Palestinian entity) in imitation of Algeria’s FLN, at the moment conducting terrorist bombings against European civilians in Algeria in order to expel the French colonial regime (as France had five years earlier been driven from Vietnam).

Nasser’s idea was to rebrand the Muslim resistance to Israel in language different from Husseini’s religious idiom. The new lexicon would be the propaganda of yet another Third World “war of national liberation.”

No more terrorist atrocities committed by fedayeen and mujahideen, religious terms; they would be transformed into “anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist freedom fighters.”

In sum, Husseini was not the “father of the Palestinian national movement.” He resisted Zionism for exclusively Muslim reasons. Today’s Palestinian nationalism began as verbal camouflage in order to cover up classical Islam’s hostility to Jewish freedom that is as old as that religion.

Over the past decade, as the prospects of peace between Israelis and Palestinians became ever slimmer, there has been a growing attention to—and, in some quarters, acceptance of—the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement targeting Israel, or BDS. Those drawn to the cause have likely come across the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a Virginia-based non-profit organization that serves as the American umbrella group of the BDS movement and is arguably the most prominent promoter of BDS in the United States. The US Campaign, which is officially called Education for Just Peace in the Middle East, coordinates the efforts of 329 different pro-BDS organizations “working to advocate for Palestinian rights and a shift in US policy… bound by commonly shared principles on Palestine solidarity as well as our anti-racism principles,” according to the group’s website .

But as   Tablet confirmed , the group also helps facilitate tax-exempt donations to a Palestinian coalition that includes Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and other groups the US State Department designates as terror organizations.

The US Campaign, Tablet has learned, is the fiscal sponsor of a group called the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), the main West Bank and Gaza-based cohort advocating for sanctions against Israel. The BNC was created in 2007 in Ramallah with the intention of serving as the Palestinian arm of the international BDS campaign.  According to the BNC’s website, one of the group’s members is the Council of National and Islamic Forces in Palestine, commonly known as PNIF. Among PNIF’s members are five different groups designated by the US as terrorist organizations, including Hamas , the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) , the Popular Front – General Command (PFLP-GC), the Palestine Liberation Front, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Since its founding, the BNC has frequently and openly collaborated with known leaders of these terror organizations: In 2015, for example, the BNC held a press conference to pressure the Palestinian government not to import gas from Israel, featuring a speech by Khalida Jarrar, then a member of the Palestinian parliament for the PFLP and still an active official in the terror group. A video of the BNC-hosted press conference features Jarrar seated alongside BNC secretariat member Omar Barghouti .

Founded in 1967, the PFLP is responsible for numerous bloody attacks, including the 1976 hijacking of an Air France plane to Uganda and the 1980 assault on Kibbutz Misgav Am in northern Israel, during which PFLP terrorists took over the Kibbutz’s nursery and murdered two-and-a-half-year-old Eyal Gluska. More recently, the PFLP took responsibility for the 2014 massacre of four Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue, and has emerged as a major supporter of Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime in Syria. Last month, the group’s combatants were filmed entering the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, where they supported Assad’s murder of scores of Palestinians

I live in a mixed up, muddled up, shock up, world or Commonwealth to be precise..

Where The Jewish voice for peace and the American Civil liberty union opposed an anti-BDS Bill in the state legislature against anti-discrimination laws based upon race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

The bill, filed in January by state Senator Cynthia Creem (D-Newton) and state representatives Paul McMurtry (D-Dedham) and Steven Howitt (R-Seekonk), faced strong opposition from a coalition of Palestinian rights groups and clergy led by the Jewish Voice for Peace Boston and the Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine. The Massachusetts chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union submitted a letter against the bill , cautioning it would prevent constitutionally protected boycotts.

While the proposed bill does not specifically refer to Israel, the law would require a person seeking a contract for $10,000 or more with any state agency to certify compliance with the state’s anti-discrimination laws based upon race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

The bill has often been referred to as anti-BDS legislation, the acronym for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement aimed to force Israel into accepting Palestinian demands

When Alexander the Great passed through "Palestine", he is said to have met the Jewish Priests of the Temple. Sourced by Gutenberg E project of the Classics  Project Gutenberg's " The Antiquities of the Jews", by Flavius Josephus ( book 11 chapter 8)

Now Alexander, when he had taken Gaza, made haste to go up to Jerusalem; and Jaddua the high priest, when he heard that, was in an agony, and under terror, as not knowing how he should meet the Macedonians, since the king was displeased at his foregoing disobedience. He therefore ordained that the people should make supplications, and should join with him in offering sacrifice to God, whom he besought to protect that nation, and to deliver them from the perils that were coming upon them; whereupon God warned him in a dream, which came upon him after he had offered sacrifice, that he should take courage, and adorn the city, and open the gates; that the rest should appear in white garments, but that he and the priests should meet the king in the habits proper to their order, without the dread of any ill consequences, which the providence of God would prevent . Upon which, when he rose from his sleep, he greatly rejoiced, and declared to all the warning he had received from God. According to which dream he acted entirely, and so waited for the coming of the king.

5. And when he understood that he was not far from the city, he went out in procession, with the priests and the multitude of the citizens. The procession was venerable, and the manner of it different from that of other nations. It reached to a place called Sapha, which name, translated into Greek, signifies a prospect, for you have thence a prospect both of Jerusalem and of the temple. And when the Phoenicians and the Chaldeans that followed him thought they should have liberty to plunder the city, and torment the high priest to death, which the king's displeasure fairly promised them, the very reverse of it happened; for Alexander, when he saw the multitudeat a distance, in white garments, while the priests stood clothed with fine linen, and the high priest in purple and scarlet clothing, with his mitreon his head, having the golden plate whereon the name of God was engraved, he approached by himself, and adored that name, and first saluted the high priest. The Jews also did all together, with one voice, salute Alexander, and encompass him about; whereupon the kings of Syria and the rest were surprised at what Alexander had done, and supposed him disordered in his mind. However, Parmenio alone went up to him, and asked him how it came to pass that, when all others adored him, he should adore the high priest of the Jews? To whom he replied, " I did not adore him, but that God who hath honored him with his high priesthood; for I saw this very person in a dream, in this very habit, when I was at Dios in Macedonia, who, when I was considering with myself how I might obtain the dominion of Asia , exhorted me to make no delay, but boldly to pass over the sea thither, for that he would conduct my army, and would give me the dominion over the Persians; whence it is that, having seen no other in that habit, and now seeing this person in it, and remembering that vision, and the exhortation which I had in my dream, I believe that I bring this army under the Divine conduct, and shall therewith conquer Darius, and destroy the power of the Persians, and that all things will succeed according to what is in my own mind." And when he had said this to Parmenio, and had given the high priest his right hand, the priests ran along by him, and he came into the city. And when he went up into the temple, he offered sacrifice to God, according to the high priest's direction, and magnificently treated both the high priest and the priests.

"Nothing new under the sun".

And yet we endure. We abide.

Our enemies, sooner or later wind up on the ash heap of history.

Good article.

Lest we forget.

Ironically, and historically not by Jewish armies, they have unexpectedly found themselves hoisted by their own Petard. (LOL) See Rome, Babylon, Assyrians, Dynastic Egypt.

"Our enemies, sooner or later wind up on the ash heap of history."

And, I dare say, will continue to do so.  "Am Yisroel chai"  (which is applicable not just to Israel, but the Jewish people as a whole).  A lesson too late for the learning.

Have you read about the resent situation in Jordan?

The worst since the Arab spring= (Islamist winter) They have been flooded with refugees from Syria, what percentage are ISIS? Will they team up with the indigenous Muslum brotherhood? I'm sure the king is as nervous as he has ever been. With very good reason.

"World leaders including France's President Emmanuel Macron and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May were among those who quickly voiced their objections, saying the move could stymie the Middle East peace process."

After DECADES of trying to achieve a peaceful solution through "Chamberlain-style" diplomacy, it's about time there was a realization that the Arabs only respect strength and force, and it was bloody well time that anyone forced the issue.

The Arabs (or anyone) only care about the Deaths of "Palestinians" if Israel can be blamed.

Israel most always act with the utmost of "Christian" charity, and "turn the other cheek", and "love thy neighbor". I have always been mystified at that. Cause Christian armies have not historically acted in that way themselves.

In September 1970 - often referred to as “ Black September ” - Jordan was in upheaval as the PLO essentially tried to take over Jordan. King Hussein responded by killing thousands of Palestinians .

Remember the UN investigations, the international uproar? No, me neither.

Why don't the Palestinians march on Iran, Syria, Egypt and Jordan?

In Syria, 23 Palestinians were killed in March alone, for a total of 3,685 Palestinian Arabs who have died since the start of the civil war in Syria seven years ago, including 467 women.

"Why doesn't the UN pass resolutions against them, only against Israel?  Why doesn't the maintream media criticize those countries, but will only demonize Israel?  Why don't certain NT members treat Israel as a victim rather than as a perpetrator?"

I know why, and so do you.
