Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday criticized the largest student union in Britain for passing a motion to boycott Israel — less than a year after it refused to condemn the Islamic State group on the grounds that it would be “Islamophobic.”

“ISIS tramples human rights to the dust. It burns people alive in cages, and the national student groups in Britain refuse to boycott ISIS and have boycotted Israel,” Netanyahu said, using an acronym for the militant group that’s claimed large parts of Iraq and Syria…

    Because when you have a faulty education you tend to have no moral compass.

      They’re real SJWs… I glanced at their website. Pack of loons.

      I suspect they don’t see the hypocrisy of their logic.

        These types never do.

      I suggest when you receive marxist indoctrination in lieu of education you have no moral compass.

    • “Terroist”? Don’t they at least teach these dimwits how to spell?

      • eMan14

        It would be a hollow victory even if they did learn to spell.

        spelling is racist, it triggers them

    Israel may have to bring back the Irgun and the Stern Gang to deal with them since civility is weakness.

    If I had a dollar for every useful idiot alive today…. I’d have enough money to pay for a World Cup… 10 time over.

    ISIS = Israel.

    Right… Got it.

    The left is flailing. The good news is that no one is listening. If you say stupid things long enough people tune you out. These people have long since lost any influence at all. Only the media pays attention and the MSM is losing its audience just as fast.

    • WalterBannon

      unfortunately half of the west is listening, enough to keep electing these racist socialists

    All these low-brow mini-Hitlers do is to embarrass themselves. The dimwitted probably did not read the recent report condemning Hamas for murdering captive prisoners.

    By the end of the year at least one mainstream UK university will attempt to carry out an ethnic cleansing of all Jewish students and staff.

    • WalterBannon

      that is what BDS is

    Socialists have always been anti-Semites.

    If students actually learned history instead of being indoctrinated with bias, by the revisionist socialist teachers that we have today, they might have learned this.

    But they did not, so now they are just anti-Semitic useful idiots.
