Divestiture From Israel.

As many have pointed out, it smacks of anti-Semitism when Israel is singled out for divestiture. In good things (rights, voting, etc.), Israel surpasses almost all countries in the world including every Arab and Muslim country. In terms of bad things (violation of rights, inequality, etc.) it is surpassed by almost all countries in the world including every Arab and Muslim country.

Besides fighting these biased proposals directly, I think another tact to take might be to start mirror divestiture drives replacing the word Israel with the word "undemocratic". We should start a drive to have the universities divest themselves of all investments in and in companies that do business with undemocratic countries - i.e., all Muslim and Arab countries.
