So the CJC and BBC, are at it again, trying to shut down talk and actions against Israel's apartheid actions, as being anti-Semitic.
Hats off to the UCC for doing the correct thing.
A proposal being considered by the United Church of Canada that seeks peace in the Middle East through boycotts of Israeli institutions is an expression of "anti-Semitic behaviour" and an "obscene gesture from a religious group," major Jewish organizations say.
The resolutions, which will be brought before the Church's upcoming general council, call for a "comprehensive boycott of Israeli academic and cultural institutions at the national and international levels" and refer to the recent assault on Gaza as a "visible reminder of the ongoing Israeli regime of exclusion, violence and dehumanization directed against Palestinians."
They also say that Israel was "built mainly on land ethnically cleansed of its Palestinian owners," and make reference to the effectiveness of boycotts when dealing with state-sponsored racial discrimination and violence as was the case in South Africa.
