Disgraceful: British students to hand out 'Palestinian' flags

This one is simply beyond belief. Read and weep.
The Union of Jewish Students is to launch a "radical, progressive" campaign, encouraging students to speak up for the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians.

Jewish students arriving at universities in the next fortnight will be asked to pledge their support to "two states for two peoples", hand out Israeli and Palestinian flags, and support "freedom, justice and equality" for all.

There is a belief within UJS that standard advocacy efforts "do not cut it any more" because "students are not stupid". Students will be encouraged to back the "liberation" of Israelis from Palestinian terror, and Palestinians through the formation of a new state.

Campaigns director Dan Sheldon said UJS had decided on the new direction because "hasbara is not working". He said: "We have done our research. Old campaigns regarding Israel have not worked, so we are trying a bold approach."
Hasbara for Israel is not working. So they're going to do hasbara for the 'Palestinians' instead. Damned morons.

Hi Carl.
What part of "JUDENFREI" do these 'students' don't understand?

I'm a student on campus, campaigns activist of 5 years, and very familiar with UJS and the new policy as well as the state of play on campus currently.

The JC have misunderstood the new policy. There are no plans to "hand out Palestinian flags" to students. The policy is designed to look at the broader picture and gain widespread support for the 2 state solution based on self-determination for Israelis (ie the Jewish people) and Palestinians.

The consequence being that consensus can be reached rather than being bogged down in the minutiae that is not important ultimately to students hundreds of miles away, with no impact on any negotiations.

"D*mned morons." They're not the only moronic ones.

The equally dense Dem. Rep. Henry Waxman says of the Jewish American voters who are turning anti-Obama, anti-Democrat “There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.”

There we have it. There can't be a good reason for rejecting Obama, rejecting the Democratic Party. Either insufficient intellect to understand Obama's wisdom and statesmanship or grasping selfish greed.
