Pro-BDS anti-Israel group uses Israeli software to build their website

It's so ironic it's delicious.

The Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Denver set up a new website to promote its cause... using free Israeli website builder Wix.

According to The Times of Israel, the group took to Facebook to try to defend their actions by linking to a longer statement by the group’s branch at Cornell University in New York State. That branch was slammed for the same reason.

“Let us be clear: BDS is not abstention, nor an absolute moral principle. It is not isolation or withdrawal, and it does not entail a rejection of everything Israeli. It is not anti-Semitic, and it has nothing to do with the merits of Israeli technology. BDS is not the attempt of beautiful souls to avoid contamination with oppression and keep their own hands clean: it is a tactic within a larger strategy, and it is beginning to work,” they wrote.

“Those who call us hypocritical for not adhering to a rigid logic of separation simplistically insinuate that if one believes in boycotting Israel one must do it absolutely and deprive oneself of all the innovative benefits of the ‘Start-up Nation’; since one is opposed to Israel, one must not be in contact with anything Israeli,” the statement added.

Really it sounds like they are too lazy to make a new website.

If you disagree with BDS in principle you can still make use of their website in good conscience.

Maybe stop using those Israel made processors in your computers as well,and any windows OS is reliant on Israeli tech , firewalls and anti virus software was pioneered in Israel as well, quit using those, the algorithm (code) that’s used today for sending e-mails, was made by an Israeli who worked at the Ben-Gurion University in Be’er-Sheva in 1980.
Discard all mobile phones, as this technology was developed in Israel, where the first mobile phones were manufactured. Mobile chip technology from a single Israeli company has now been installed in over 100 million devices. Only top-level staff may retain mobile phones for emergency situations. However the use of SMS (Texting) is expressly forbidden as this facility was developed in Israel. No 4G devices can be used, as the chipset is Israeli.
Turn off your voice-mail service and delete any recorded messages. Israeli companies invented the voice-mail system.

well at least we know BDS is too stupid to really get a worrisome foothold..

The so-called BDS movement is purposely ambiguous (according to their leaders)… this way it allows both mild and extreme bigots to participate…. the sentiments above are from the milder bigots and in no way is representative of the majority of BDS bigots.
