Anti-Israel college students will trek to a scenic campsite in upstate New York this summer to learn how to launch campus boycotts against the Jewish state at a program subsidized and run by one of America’s largest Quaker faith groups.

The American Friends Service Committee “We Divest Campaign Student Leadership Team Summer Training Institute” describes itself as a “five (5) day intensive program for campus [Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions] organizers—those with campaigns already running and those hoping to get one launched in the 2013-2014 school year.

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign was officially launched by a network of pro-Palestinian groups in 2005 and seeks to use economic and cultural boycotts to isolate Israel, force the government’s hand on Palestinian negotiations, and evoke comparisons between the Jewish state and South Africa’s Apartheid regime.

Students attending the AFSC’s Summer Training Institute, which is also sponsored by the anti-Israel Jewish Voice for Peace, will participate in “anti-oppression analysis workshops,” “non-violent direct action planning,” and “strategy sessions with BDS movement leaders,” according to the AFSC website.

The program runs from July 28 to Aug. 1 and promises “fun in a summer camp-like environment!” The cost of room and board is subsidized by the AFSC and the JVP, according to the website.


The Simon Wiesenthal Center report said the BDS program meets Natan Sharansky’s “three D’s” test for anti-Semitism: It follows “double-standards” by criticizing Israel while overlooking human rights abuses across the Arab world; “demonizes” Israel by comparing its actions to those of Apartheid regimes; and attempts to “delegitimize” the Jewish state by targeting its existence.

Let me understand, promises fun for everyone. What’s next, an anti-Israel theme park. I bet they’re already working on that one.

Try that with Muslims and see how far it gets. These days, with all the attention on so-called “hate”, this comes off as pretty hypocritical, to put it mildly.

And they’re turning it into an educational program. Kids learn the fine art of name calling, protesting, and good old-fashioned anti-Semitism. You’ll be the hit of any event after you learn these simple techniques. Something the whole family can do together.

    Great post Bull. I’d not heard about this. What they call training I call brainwashing and indoctrination. Just another big red flag illustrating the current all out assault on Judeo-Christian societies. Pinko’s, Marxist and Dictators are taking over the entire world and their most common root hatred is their disdain for Jews and Christians.

    Wonder what our commie, lapdog media would report if someone opened up “training camps” on how to really deal with the butchering camel jockeys?? Do ya’ think the Sumbitch would let that slide?? The answer to those questions I believe is pretty obvious. Damn; am I ever going to wake up from this frigging nightmare????

      Dave, exactly. Well, now we know what is the popular thing on campuses, or soon will be,

      Dave, if these kids today can’t figure out they’ve been brainwashed and played, then God help this generation –they’re really going to need it.

      On the mark! Americans have been brainwashed by leftist media for decades. The new religion, which preaches that the state knows best, that Christianity is evil, the the USA was a racist nation. The media is owned primarily by Jews who have forged the new culture in USA. That culture is atheist, amoral and increasingly thoughtless. It is a media that will not report, for example, the epidemic of black on white flash mob hate crime. Read Yockey’s ‘Imperium
      USA is a defacto communist state. This is just the start. It will get real bad for white folks.

    I’ll bet CAIR endorses this, let’s call it what it REALLY is, hate camp.

    The Christian leaders’ letter acknowledged that both Israelis and Palestinians had suffered, and that both sides bore responsibility. But it called for an investigation into only Israel’s activities.

    “Where’s the letter to Congress about Syria, which is massacring its own people?” said Rabbi Steven Wernick, the chief executive of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. “When Israel is the only one that is called to account, that’s when it becomes problematic.”

    But that’s the way it always is, and is with the left. It’s a one-sided tilt-a-whirl they’re on. You’d think they’d be dizzy and suffering whiplash by now.
