As "Israel Apartheid Week" kicked off Monday on college campuses, in support of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, the one and only democracy in the Middle East, the group NGO Monitor has announced the "BDS Sewer System," which provides detailed information on the sources of funding behind the delegitimization campaigns against Israel (more here).
Sewer system is right. As for the contents of that sewer seeping into and being absorbed on our college campuses (i.e., our so-called institutions of higher learning), note that what we are witnessing today is ignorance in action. And as Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
[p.s. As I read about this BS, er BDS, I couldn't help but remember that music video by LATMA, which is a great parody of these human rights/peace activist types. Watch video below.]

"Let me be very clear: The policy of strategic patience has ended. ... All options are on the table. If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action, that option is on the table."
