Columnist Cathy Young spouts traditional pro-Israel propaganda .

She is apparently attempting to throttle the proposed boycotts that segments of academia are proposing, to express their opposition to the continued and increasing subjugation of the Palestinian people by the Israeli government, with financial assistance from the United States.

I “single out” Israel because its government is using our tax money to pay for an illegal and brutal occupation of Palestinian territory. Young should be denouncing the feckless American politicians who give in to Israel’s financial demands and the legion of pro-Israel propagandists who infect American media.
