Divestment as a tool of jihad

David Horowitz's FrontPage magazine has a very interesting article that describes the left's highly-organized attempt to weaken Israel by getting American and European institutions to get rid of their investments in the Israeli economy. All this is smokescreened with concern over supposedly cruel Israeli treatment of Palestinians, etc., etc.

As I see it, all Israel has done in its brief existence is to build a Western-style democracy in, as Golda Meir famously commented, the one plot of Middle Eastern geography that had absolutely no oil. Palestine was an unproductive backwater until they came; now, their bit of Palestine is a world leader in technology. For this, they've been attacked ruthlessly from the first hour of their existence to the present moment.

Western civilization has already allowed millions of God's chosen people to be murdered in the Holocaust. If it allows the rest to be murdered by militant Islam, I can't help but think that God's retribution on us will swift and hard.
