During the summer, more than a dozen performers backed out of Israel’s Meteor Festival after headliner Lana Del Rey canceled.
Scientists, academics and even fruit fans have backed BDS: Grape exports to Europe from the Jordan Valley in the West Bank have fallen by 80 percent since 2007 because of boycotts, according to the head of the regional council there.

ROBERT STEELE: Here is the killer quote from a Zionist official:
Oren said that the right of return is “code for the destruction of the state of Israel, flooding us with six million Palestinians who claim they are refugees.”
No shit. Zionist Israel has genocided the Palestinians and evicted roughly 70% of them from lands that Gandhi said are to Palestinians as France is to the French. Now Israel wants to call them refugees from somewhere else? The time to kick the Zionists out of Palestine — and especially out of Jerusalem — has come. Simultaneously Saudi control over Mecca should be on the table. The eight point Middle East peace plan is not yet being taken seriously by Putin and Trump and Xi, but it should eventually be considered.
