Re: “UC Berkeley Suspends Controversial Israel-Palestine Course Amid Complaints

The U.S. govt has committed approx. $5 billion in assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world's largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid. But, I suppose boycotting Terrorist backed groups/countries (Palestinian Hamas, or Iran) is not in the "interests" of the extremist wing of the Left.
Academia is basically being hijacked by those that wish to colonize thought and intimidate based on a pathological focus, and BDS is another outlet for rebelling against the big, bad authority figure - Israel, and/or the U.S. Those interested in “Settler colonialism” can look no further than their own property, which is occupied land of the American Indian. For that matter, why not focus on practically every other country that has, or is currently, experiencing a level of conflict, dispute, or occupation between tribes over land? Then again, the Left has a penchant for romanticizing the 'other' ethnicity, and Israel/U.S. is an easy target for the rebel's without a cause.
