Yes, Israel is not special

Phil Weiss, reporting this week from the AIPAC conference, notes a growing fear in the Zionist lobby that the global boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign is starting to bite.

Who thinks so? The head of AIPAC:

…Rather than attempting to simply de-legitimatize it with charges of anti-Semitism, he recognized its true motivation: “This is more than the simple spewing of hatred. This is a conscious campaign to shift policy, to transform the way Israel is treated by its friends to a state that deserves not our support, but our contempt; not our protection, but pressured to change its essential nature.” And even more, he knows the movement is building steam.
