The BDS is part of the global agenda of the far-left. According to Wikipedia:
There is considerable debate about the scope, efficacy, and morality of the BDS movement. Critics argue that the BDS movement disincentivizes the Palestinian leadership from negotiating with Israel at present, is antisemitic, and that it is a form of anti-semitic anti-Zionism that promotes the delegitimization of Israel.
For me, it is shameful that the US education establishment is so biased and partisan. It is worth dwelling on US education which has the lowest numeracy levels in OECD countries. With powerful unions and a poor record of educational achievement, compared to international benchmarks, the US education establishment has been hijacked by the far-left with their shadowy and conspiratorial agenda, including support for the BDS.
Let me ask an open question:
Has President Obama demonstrated bias in favor of the far-left and given tacit support to the BDS.
