It [joining the BDS movement] will also make the PSFC a more welcoming place for all people who want justice realized in Palestine.
Setting aside what "justice in Palestine" might mean - that will have to be a separate post - I assume they are talking about themselves. Are they saying they don't feel welcome? So let's see:
- They have had over two and half years of letters printed in the Linewaiters' Gazette.
- They have had an entire General Meeting devoted to their topic.
- They have had hosted several education events in the Coop.
- They give out flyers in front of the Coop.
- They have 2 items sitting on the Agenda Committee list.
Just how much more welcome do they need to feel?
And since when is holding a political position akin to race or ethnicity or religion or sex or orientation? Since when are holders of a political positions a protected group? By definition, holding a position means excluding those who hold the opposite position. So, we have to be more welcoming to one group by endorsing a position that will make the people who disagree with them feel less welcome.
These are peace activists? This is the meaning of co-existence?
If your head hasn't exploded yet, can someone please explain to me the logic of "If you won't take a position on an issue, then your inaction means you support the people I disagree with."?
Once again, plain and simple, they don't know what they are talking about.
