Dear Daniel Pipes,

Your notion of an Israeli "Victory" also distracts us from the international Public Relations struggle against the world's "obsession" with Israel - the latter notion is used by Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations. For example, there is the international movement, known as BDS ("Boycott, Divest, Sanctions") against Israel. To show that this is in fact Racist and Anti-Semitic against Jews, it is only necessary to mention three countries that aren't its similar targets or victims, only because they aren't the World minority Jewish population of Israel. Here are three (3) countries in particular:

(1) China (Tibet) - no BDS. It is well known that China refuses to grant Tibet Autonomy and does everything possible to effect Ethnic Cleansing within Tibet's Nation Homeland in the "Empire" of China. But there is no such BDS similar movement against China.

(2) Russia Ukraine) - no BDS. Russia invade and conquered a portion of Ukraine. But there is no BDS against Russia. Why? Simply because noJews are involved.

(3) Turkey (Kurdistan) - no BDS. Turkey, since its independence in 1923, has engaged in the Ethic Cleansing of the Kurdish populations within its borders and outside, particularly in Syria. Turkey actively, militarily, and violently refuses to recognize or acknowledge the Right to Self Determination of the Kurdish people. Why? Only because the world is obsessed with Jews, and there are no Jews involved in these demographics!

Once again, I wish to point out that this struggle does not involve a Military Victory.

I remember that you once identified less than a dozen American university professors as expounders of Islamism (Political Islam). As a consequences you were accused of McCarthyism, and maybe a hundred or so "liberal" faculty from across the USA signed a petition wishing to be included in your listing.

I would like you to re-consider your prior abandoned project. Why don't you start a project whereby USA professors and other lecturing faculty are identified and listed as BDS supporters. That way prospective students will be able to decide if they wished to enroll in such their classes?

That would be another struggle (non-military) in which Israel would move closer to "Victory." You are aware, of course, that it was the Palestinian Omar Barghouti who implemented this non-military but strategic struggle, initially relatively successful:
