    it would turn is venom against Hamas. Derschowitz, for the record, is not a plagarist. The accusations against him were adjudged completely frivolous. He is also open to BDS presenting its (pathetic and skewed) views on Israel. His problem is departamental sponsorship, unless the department is prepared to sponsor anti-BDS speakers. In short, as is BDS's little habit, it has a demented view of the world or worse, it is simply a decpetive organization. It is BDS that is hypocritical. Why, if BDS has any integrity, has this organization not put Hamas in its sights. Afterall, that is a government that tortures, kills those with Gaza whom it doesn't like despite the fact thta it could put those people on triall and routinely sends rockets into civilian areas in Israel. All thw whilst openly admitting that its goal is the destruction of Israel. BDS is a pathetic, hypocritical organization that like Hamas is willing to leave completely innocent victims in its wake. In this case, its sights are set on Alan Dershowitz which it seeks to discredit simply because he is such a persuasive and informed advocate of Israel.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
