NY Times Supports the “Right” to BDS - by Daniel Pomerantz

...The New York Times is entitled to its opinion, as is the BDS movement. Yet no newspaper or journalist is entitled to mislead the public.

BDS is not criticism

The editorial board repeats over and over that the BDS movement is about criticism – specifically criticism of Israeli settlements.

Omar Barghouti, founder, BDS:

As’ad AbuKhalil, California State University Professor of Political Science, BDS leader and activist:

The real aim of BDS is to bring down the State of Israel…this should be stated as an unambiguous goal.
