In a sign of growing desperation among anti-Palestinian groups, a New York Times ad published [last week] likens the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement to the Holocaust.
“The Holocaust began with boycotts of Jewish stores and ended with death camps,” begins the ad, placed by notorious anti-African American and Islamophobic agitator David Horowitz.
Citing the murder of three Jewish children and a rabbi in Toulouse, France earlier this year, the ad says, “it is time for supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) to ask themselves what they did to contribute to the atmosphere of hate that spawned these and other murders of Jews.”
Something tells me that Dave sang a different tune – or none at all – when the pro-Bush-junta media machine engaged in its open and notorious boycott (and divestment from the airwaves) of the Dixie Chicks for their opposition to the false-pretense war against Iraq (and we won’t mention Bill O-Lie-ly’s pathetic boycott of France.)
As for the Times?
One hundred and forty-eight US college professors signed a letter objecting to an advertisement in The New York Times by notorious racist David Horowitz naming indvidual faculty members at several US colleges and accusing them of inciting murder of Jewish children, and likening the movement to boycott Israel (BDS) to Nazism.
The Times, however, failed to print it.
