The commenters here are trying to normalize a situation in which people can be disqualified from a university’s student government simply because they oppose BDS (. support Israel). And they pretend that this is not only OK, but a positive thing. For example, “Jerky” below (well-named) believes that anti-BDSers are “on the WRONG SIDE of a moral and ethical issue.” Of course, that’s just his — rather dim — opinion. One could say — and I do — that it’s the BDSers who are on the wrong side of the issue; unlike them, however, I wouldn’t advocate kicking them out of student government just because of that — even if they are focusing on one country only and ignoring far greater “moral and ethical issues” going on in the world, including on Israel’s doorstep in Syria and Egypt, and nearby in Libya and Yemen, not to mention Iran etc. Even anti-Israel obsessives have the right to speak, but apparently, those who refuse to demonize Israel do not, according to these clowns.
