The BDS cru saw blood.
Via social media, an organized campaign began to bully KQEd into capitulating to their demands. While the pro Israel community were busy at their day jobs, the "Don't they have a life?" contingent began the process of pressuring the station.
Here's the quick and dirty anatomy of the attack.
Anti-Israel agitprop site Electronic Intifada issued a call to arms.
Dr Hatem Bazian, who infamously called for an intifada in America encouraged people to call KQED.
Soon, others were spamming the KQED Twitter feed,
as well as their facebook page
Interestingly, according to the Electronic Intifada the station had been "unaware" of the controversy surrounding Sodastream until this incident. What does that say about the alleged "momentum" of this "movement"? After years of letter writing, emailing, "twitter storms", "thunderclaps" "culture jamming", protests and flash mobs, the BDS 'holes had not yet succeeded in propagandizing a Bay Area progressive radio station
If only KQED had taken the time to really examine this issue.
what a disappointment I used to be so fond of NPR.
Bazian is a bully and is beyond disgust. He is an embarrassment to the UC system.
I personally will never contribute to KQED again.
i just left them a message about this and how they've lost me as a listener. you can do the same at http://www.kqed.org/about/contact/
