"And that is really what BDS is about - not relief for ordinary Palestinians but an ideological crusade against Israel that will stop at nothing short of the country's demise. After all, there are no NGOs like the pro-BDS International Solidarity Movement showing solidarity, international or otherwise, with the starving Syrians under brutal assault from their own government. Similarly, there are no flotillas sailing for Latakia, Syria, to break the siege and bring goods. It is an old story, to which Israelis have grown accustomed over the years. The self-appointed custodians of human rights will never judge Israel by anything other than utopian standards - and in the process, will always choose Palestinian misery over compromising on their Israel-free ideal world."
