“NUI Galway Students’ Union actively supports the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the State of Israel.”

[ Editor’s Note: Each week we continue getting closer and closer to moving past the limitations of the BDS boycott strategy.
It has been a good starting point because it was an easy one, but it is not a killer for Israel. Important businesses can be moved back over into Israel proper and pick up where they left off, albeit with lower profit margins.
None of the BDS organizers, who have been infiltrated to make sure their efforts remain on the limited West Bank issue, understand that this is not the wooden stake that needs to be driven into the heart of militant Zionism, the unfairness to the Palestinians on the West Bank.
It is that militant Zionism is a national security threat to all of the rest of us. It is not a ‘social, cultural, or political issue…but that the Hebrew Klansmen are on the attack everywhere they can be with a list of internationally recognized crimes, including terrorism, crimes against humanity, and nuclear proliferation.
The historical ‘remedies’ for that activity have been quite harsh, and we have past examples. On the hard end has been attacking and destroying an enemy’s ability to launch attacks. Another is confiscation of all assets that resulted from illegal activity. So for example, that means all Palestinians lands held by the Israeli government are seizeable reparations assets.
Now you know why BDS people never go near this stuff with a ten foot pole.
And all those who have supported the Zios knowing of their ongoing crimes, they also have aided and abetted exposure. Sure, the governments have some immunity, but entities like the phony 501(c)3’s and the Christian Zionists technically do not.
Until we put these cards on the table we will be only skirmishing with the devil. In any deal that governments make, the Zios are going to have immunity for past infractions built into an eventual settlement.
That is why we need to get these irons in the fire now so their Congressional lackeys will not pass legislation to protect them from taking the major hits that are needed. So let us start today…by at least talking about raising the stakes… Jim W. Dean ]

The student body’s decision makes it the first Irish academics union to support BDS.
A motion supporting a blanket boycott of Israel was passed by students of the National University of Ireland on Thursday .
The referendum results at the NUI Galway Students Union make it the first student body in Ireland to endorse the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, or BDS, campaign against Israel, according to the local news site galwaybayfm.ie.
A number of student societies submitted the motion, which is nonbinding on the university.
Out of 3,013 valid votes of students who participated in the referendum on Israel, 1,954 — or 64 percent — voted in favor of boycotting Israel, the voting committee announced Friday.
Students were asked to answer with “yes” or “no” to express their support or disapproval of the assertion that, “NUI Galway Students’ Union actively supports the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against the State of Israel.”
In April, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland became the first educational trade union in Europe to adopt a boycott of Israeli academia. Last month, the Young Men and Women’s Christian Association in Norway aligned itself with the BDS movement.
