This goes along perfectly well with Most Americans don't know about or don't support BDS - Pew poll even though she's Australian.

Worth sharing this too. The total number of passed resolutions this year is at the same level as it was in 2012 and anti-Israel activity already peaked in 2014-18. Just shows that even amongst youth on college campuses, BDS still appeals to the same narrow activist circles and isn't remotely mainstream.

BDS is a waste of our time and energy, generally. Not to say we shouldn’t be vigilant with their antics but there are much worse organizations out there that pose a threat at the moment.

I'm sure BDS tried to 'educate' her. I mean they can't even leave small artists alone, much less bigger ones.

Because I don’t know much, I’m happy to come and see things for myself,” she added.

Nice.

The remark I respect the absolute most, unironically, from my gentile American peers about Israel-Palestine is "I don't know much about it so I don't really have an opinion". Like fucking THANK YOU.

Pretty sure there's a lot of things she doesn't know about. She also had this to say

“Because I don’t know much, I’m happy to come and see things for myself,” she added.

We are looking forward to gay pride in Gaza... maybe nice hospitality by the Ayatollhas regime of Iran, Hamas supporters.

BDS is not peace movement, they don't say let's make a lasting peace agreement with the good old sovereign state of Israel... they only support violent Jehad against Israel... liberal person that supports the BDS, has an issue of cognitive dissonance.

I am pretty sure that she is making fun out of them because BDS tend to spam every artists who performs in Israel.

Further demonstrating that Israeli and Jewish institutions are far more effective at raising public awareness of the BDS movement than the BDS movement itself is.
