Divesting from Israel is antisemitism and a policy of discrimination. Why? Because we single out Israel among all the nations. We have yet to divest from China for their unlawful occupation of Tibet. We have yet to divest from corporations that do business with Syria. We have yet to condemn the government of Syria. We have yet to divest from countries that do business with Russia. When have we condemned their occupation of Chechnya? Have we ever said anything about Saudi Arabia and their treatment of women?
Whenever we pick on a country whose people have been the target of Genocide, Pogroms and discrimination for the last 2000 years, and let injustice go in many other countries, we engage in discrimination of the worst sort.
Lets divest from all countries that are guilty of Injustice at the same time. Lets not single out Israel. I suspect that the list of companies that we can invest in might be fairly short.
