Editorial Note

As already discussed, Dr. Kobi Snitz (Weizmann Institute) is touring abroad to promote BDS. Snitz, an anarchist who co-founded Boycott! Supporting the Palestinian BDS Call From Within, along with other radical faculty, is a leading BDS activist.  Though the Knesset passed anti-boycott legislation, Snitz apparently is not at all worried about breaking the law.
 
He has routinely protested against the separation barrier as part of the activist group Anarchists Against the Wall.  All these activities probably have left Snitz little time to do his job as a specialist of analysis and modeling at the Olfaction research group of the department of Neurobiology.  But, again, there is little to worry about.   Indeed, as long as taxpayers are willing to support his extracurricular activities, he can travel the world to promote BDS as well as the finer points of anarchist theory.
 


April 13: Kobi Snitz on Boycott from Within: Israeli Support for BDS

Posted on April 5, 2014 by 
“Support From Within: Israeli Participation in the Palestinian Struggle  - from demonstrations to BDS, from Matzpen to Anarchists Against the Wall  (AATW) – and the legacy of the Bund”   
 a talk by Kobi Snitz of Boycott from Within and AATW on Sunday, April 13, 7 pm at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, 949 49th Ave. W. (Oak and 49th).
tadamonkobiKobi will speak about support by Israelis for the Palestinian popular struggle, reviewing a decade of Israeli involvement in the Palestinian popular struggle and half a decade of support for BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) from Inside Israel (despite Israeli legislation making advocates of BDS subject to lawsuits by companies that anticipate possible future financial damage as a result).
As Kobi points out, “These efforts have historical roots which not coincidentally are largely unknown. As it isolates itself from a world increasingly critical of its destruction of Palestinian society, Israel also isolates itself from significant parts of Jewish history. ”
Donations will be accepted to help fund nonviolent activism in Beit Ummar, one of the villages where Kobi regularly participates in demonstrations.
Kobi’s talk is sponsored by: Independent Jewish Voices–Vancouver (www.ijvcanada.org ) and the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver.

Kobi Snitz of Anarchists Against the Wall and Boycott from Within

Apr 03, 2014 at 12:44 PM

On Sunday, April 13, 7 p.m. 
Unitarian Church of Vancouver

In his presentation, about support by Israelis for the Palestinian popular struggle, Kobi will review a decade of Israeli involvement in the Palestinian popular struggle (including nonviolent demonstrations side-by-side with villagers confronting the Wall and settlements) and half a decade of BDS support from Inside Israel (despite Israeli legislation making advocates of BDS subject to lawsuits by companies that anticipate possible future financial damage as a result). 
Kobi points out that, "These efforts have historical roots which not coincidentally are largely unknown. As it isolates itself from a world increasingly critical of its destruction of Palestinian society, Israel also isolates itself from significant parts of Jewish history. These historical movements, from the Bund to Matzpen, are worth keeping in mind for those who are reevaluating their position on Israel as well as for those who are committed to resisting it."

The hat will be passed, with funds collected going to a popular committee in Beit Ummar, one of the villages where Kobi regularly participates in demonstrations.

Cosponsored by Independent Jewish Voices-Vancouver and the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver.
