    For all those advocates of BDS, Israel division, (actually the only BDS division supported in the world it seems), it is obvious by what you don't do that is revealing. No one seems agitated enough to engage in , BDS Sudan, BDS Iran, BDS China or BDS any anti U.S./Western oriented society. Why is that? Why is it that, "Left"-leaning groups, with the exception of the one mentioned here and the Stop The Bomb people in Vienna, are seemingly the only ones that have the cahunas to call out hypocrisy amongst lefties or fascists, even if they are of the anti U.S./West variety? The silence is deafening to anyone who would bother to do the math.
