BDS fails of the Week

 In BDS fail news of the week:

According to the International monetary fund, the Israeli economy is expected to grow by 3.8 percent in 2013 and 3.3% in 2014. Israel's economy may very well outpace other Western economies.  IMF economists indicate that Israel's economy was strong, stable and diverse. 

Thats after 12 years of Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions. 

And in other recent BDS fails:

Since March, anti-Israel activists have been collecting signatures on a petition to ban Sabra hummus from the George Mason University Dining Services. In 7 months, this crusade against healthy eating has reached the milestone of 445 supporters, the vast majority of who are not GMU students, and have no affiliation with GMU.

Glancing at the petition, some signators may not be real human beings, either.

BDS fail, GMU.

This week also brought us two sold out Tel Aviv appearances by Tom Jones.   Check out his version of My Yiddishe Mama.

Paula Adbdul is loving Israel, and is letting the 2 million who follow her twitter feed know all about it.

Cultural boycott, fail.

Rather makes me think that organizers of last weekends Students for Justice in Palestine conference should have brought in grief counselors as they collectively mourned their 12 years of abject failure.
