    Rahamim Alsheikh and Yosef Fink were not just "yeshiva students kidnapped by Hezbollah in 1986" as this article states They were, in fact, IDF soldiers serving in Lebanon during Israel's occupation. This article makes it sound like they were simple religious students minding their own business in their own country when Hezbollah swooped down and "kidnapped" them. They were soldiers in an army that was illegally (and brutally) occupying a foreign country after an unprovoked invasion masterminded by General Ariel Sharon. Perhaps a little more context next time?

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
