This morning I was referred to a very interesting website that is keeping track of the boycotts against Israel. As I've said before, one is free to boycott anything they wish. But when a large group attempts to boycott something, it's always fascinating to find out what the real underlying reasons are. These reasons are frequently not what is publicly stated.
A lifelong mission of mine is to find out why members of the Radical Left are almost always anti-Semitic (ie. they HATE Jews). The smarter ones know that the optics of this are not good and try to explain it away with comments like "I'm actually anti-Zionist" or "Just because I don't support Israel's actions doesn't mean that I have anything against Jews". But dig down a little deeper and you quickly learn that the Jew Hatred is very much the driving motivation ... in most cases. At least in my experience it is.
Update: I changed the original title of this posting after receiving the e-mail shown below. Mr. Taub is correct, especially considering that I had no idea about this organization! But I don't have the time or interest to fight a SLAPP suit
I was reading your blog today and I found a problem. Your page title “Israel Boycott Watch” violates my Trademark of the name Boycott Watch. I understand there was probably no intent to violate my trademark, but I would still appreciate the immediate removal of my federally registered and legally protected name.
