Star Parker: The BDS Movement is Very Anti-Israel

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Star Parker wrote a great column on the anti-Israel BDS movement that is making waves on college campuses:

According to AMCHA, a nonprofit devoted to combating anti-Semitism, of 19 directors of these programs, eight (42 percent) have expressed anti-Israel bias through public support of BDS. Of 111 speakers who have appeared on programs sponsored by these centers, 45 (41 percent) have endorsed BDS.

Efforts are underway in congress for more oversight of these programs. If taxpayer funds are directed to universities, they should fund education, not propaganda.

Legislation has been introduced in the House and Senate to fight this destructive movement. The Combatting BDS Act of 2016 has been introduced in the House by Rep. Robert Dold and in the Senate by Senator Mark Kirk. And Rep. Doug Lamborn has introduced the “Boycott Our Enemies, Not Israel Act.”
