    Anti-semistism? please it is impossible to be anti anything today on a college campus, because they moment you are every jewish body in the US knows about it, maybe here and there you heard some anti semetic slurs, but let us not try and make it seem endemic when it really is not. As to the BDS movement, yes it is anti-Israeli(which is wrong nad distasteful). Being anti zionist has nothing to do with being anti jewish, a lot of jews are anti zionist(I also don't think it is relavant whether someone is a zionist or not). BDS is useless, and is a cult(Norman Finkelstein's words). Sanctioning Israel is hypocritical anyway, if you want to be moral and prinicipled you would sanction the US first, which is Israel's biggest sponsor, but we know that won't happen. As to Israel being a beacon of hope, stop spreading propaganda that is not true. Israel is involved in a violent and brutal occupation. It is only the beacon of hope for jingoist war fanatics and christian evangelicals. Democracy is dying in Israel with each high court decision, that doesn't call for Israel to end its occupation and colonisation of foreign land
