?  BDS has been controversial for awhile in Canada and I believe Rue posted about it on MLW.  I don't know how I feel about it.  I think criticism of Israel sometimes goes over into anti-Semitism but I don't think countries should be exempt from criticism either.

Most of those involved in the BDS movement appear to be fairly obvious anti-Semites. Why Israel? Why not target Russia over its support of Syria or China over its support of Sudan? Far, far, far more misery and bloodshed and human rights abuses coming out of that but there is no interest among the Left in Canada or the US or Europe who care so very, very deeply about human rights abuses in Palestine.
