Dr. Pipes,

I read an article today that caught my eye about Roger Waters, the ex-Pink Floyd frontman and leader of the BDS movement, which bolsters my comment from last year that the anti-Israel far left can't wait to implement its delegitimization campaign to target Israel-proper and not just in regards to the disputed territories:

"...in a functioning theocracy it is almost inevitable that the symbol of the religion becomes confused with the symbol of the state, in this case the State of Israel, a state that operates Apartheid both within its own borders and also in the territories it has occupied and colonized since 1967."
