MinnPost – with the financial help of the Greater Twin Cities United Way – prints a call for the State of Minnesota to divest from Israel bonds by Sylvia Schwarz of the Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign. They are going to sue the State of Minnesota to divest from Israel Bonds. Here’s the actual press release.
MN Break the Bonds Campaign (MN BBC), a statewide campaign aimed at stopping Minnesota investment in Israel’s human rights and international law violations, along with several individuals and organizations, is serving a lawsuit on the Minnesota State Board of Investment (SBI) with a demand that it divest from sovereign Israel Bonds.
I commented at MinnPost:
Zionism is the belief that Jews have a right to live as an independent, self-governing people, free from oppression, in Israel, their homeland.
Islamist Arabs, supercessionist Christians, anti-Semites and leftists parade these Jews (ed. note: referring to anti-Zionist Jews) in front of the world in an attempt to justify their genocidal motives to destroy the only Jewish country on the planet. They will attempt to do so militarily, through political isolation, and though economic blackmail.
So far, it has been a failure. The BDS movement has gone no where, even with their rantings of libel and defamation. I know you guys miss us Jews as victims, as a source of taxation and property throughout history, our use as an outlet for violent mobs.
Those days are over. Jews are not going to be shoved into cattle cars; we are not going to be shot and thrown in ditches; gassed, burned, executed by the millions; forced to pay jizya; be at our peril day and night, our property, families and lives confiscated.
Israel is the home of the Jews, its been that for thousands of years, before the Muslim invasion, the Christian invasion, the Roman invasion. Israel is our home, it is ours – and the Islamists, jihadists, their left wing collaborators aren’t taking it from us. Let the Arabs go to East Palestine, Jordan. It’s not quite an even trade for the 850,000 Jews expelled from Arab lands since 1948. It’s good enough.
On one hand, it’s a disgrace that MinnPost saw fit to print and the Greater Twin Cities United Way sponsor printing this eliminationist filth. On the other hand, it’s good to know who these people are and what they are up to.
Targeting the Jews and not targeting other countries (including Hamas controlled Gaza) that have far worse human rights records is intellectually dishonest, a gross double standard. By attempting to destroy Israel, Sylvia Schwarz and her group engage in moral and material support for jihadists, Islamist supremacists and murderous anti-Semites.
