Israeli innovation will defeat BDS

The Anti-Semitic BDS Campaigns on Campus: What is Their Impact?

In the last 10 years (2005-2015):

  • A total of 70 votes have been taken on BDS measures – 45 were defeated (64%).
  • Those votes were limited to a total of 44 schools, just 2 percent of America’s four-year colleges. (I count the California Community College Association as one college and exclude the UC Student Association which has no power and represents no individual schools).
  • Of the 44 campuses, 9 are part of the University of California (20%); 24 resolutions were proposed on these campuses and 15 were defeated (63 percent).
  • Only 18 schools have approved a BDS resolution in the last 10 years (.009 percent of universities).
  • Only the University of Michigan Dearborn, UC San Diego, UC Irvine and UC Davis have passed BDS resolutions more than once.

What are we to make of these statistics?

The movement has grown, but it is not sweeping the nation, and it definitely is not winning. Even the handful of divestment resolutions that were adopted by students have no authority and administrators have repeatedly made clear they have no intention of divesting from Israel. In fact, many of the same schools (e.g., UCI) dramatically increased cooperation with Israel after the votes.

Many psychology studies fail reproducibility test

A large group of researchers set out to repeat 100 experiments published by leading psychology journals to see how often they would get the same results.

The answer: Less than half the time.

Scientology & Nation Of Islam

The relationship between the Nation of Islam and scientology is becoming stranger and stranger.

Whether anyone likes it or not, scientology membership is disproportionately white. Massively so. And Louis Farrakhan is militantly anti-white.

So, what the hell are they doing in bed with one another?

Report: Fears in Lebanon that Hezbollah trying to hijack social protests to overthrow government

Political sources in Lebanon claimed Monday that the “You Stink” protest movement, which originated on social media and has mobilized around the government’s failure to deal with collecting trash, has been hijacked by Hezbollah in an attempt to seize power in the country.

The sources told London-based newspaper Al-Arab that “Hezbollah is using the trash crisis to topple the government of [Prime Minister] Tammam Salam and to create a power vacuum amid the Parliament’s failure to choose a new president who is acceptable to everyone.”

In the Lebanese media as well, there are claims that the Shi’ite faction, Amal, which is identified in Parliament with Hezbollah, is acting to disturb the public order. The reports claim that these activists clashed with security forces that guard the prime minister’s headquarters in Beirut.
