Alan Dershowitz Explains Why BDS is Bad – Prager University

Let’s educate America’s college students about what BDS really stands for.

We agree on the main point. Boycotting Israel is wrong.

The problem with this video is all the equivocation that Jewish liberals must constantly express to rationalize away their humanistic instincts.
Here, Harvard Law Professor, Allan Dershowitz, makes an impassioned and cerebral argument against the BDS – Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement against Israel.
However, throughout the video he defines his personal beliefs, which include two-state solution, easing of Palestinian suffering, etc…

Let us be clear that this boycott movement has nothing to do with a two state solution. It has everything to do with further distancing Israel as a Pariah State. Inasmuch as the movement to ban Israel from FIFA was not about Football (soccer), but also to the same goal of ostracizing the Jewish State.

We think that the video would have greater effect without hearing about the professor’s personal convictions. BDS is a rallying point for all Israelis and Jews around the world.
We needn’t inject our personal motivations or political agendas outside this singular point. Boycotting Israel will not help the Palestinians, and it will not be good for Israel.

BDS must be stopped.
