Jon, the brilliant, lucid voice behind "Divest this" has come up with a new weapon in the war against BDS. Jon's new handbook is "Divest this: How to Stop the Global Boycott Sanctions and Divestment (BDS) Movement Attack on Israel and ensure its Second Decade of Defeat".
The Handbook is a must read for any community, school or commercial institution dealing with the specter of BDS, drawing upon Jon's years of experience as a voice of light and reason in the BDS battleground
Jon's Top Ten Reasons to Defeat BDS:
1. BDS represents an attempt by narrow-interest partisans to stuff
their propaganda into the mouth of a third party.
2. BDS tries to make every civic organization a new battlefront in
the Middle East conflict.
3. BDS poisons and divides any community it enters.
4. BDS is based on falsehoods, such as the “Israel=apartheid” propaganda accusation.
5. BDS warps debate over the Middle East, making the quest for peace more difficult
6. BDS seeks to unfairly punish just one side in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
7. BDS activists frequently use manipulation or fraud to get their way with an organization.
8. BDS has been rejected by every organization where it’s been tried, including some of thenation’s most progressive communities.
9. Defeating BDS helps discredit the discreditable endeavor to de-legitimize Israel.
10. BDS is a loser.
When BDS invades a civic organization, divisiveness, hostility and chaos ensue. This new handbook gives supporters of Israel the tools we need to fight back.
Yascher Koach, Jon. May you go from strength to strength.
