Despite Airbnb decision, Israel did significant damage to the BDS movement over the weekend

4

Last week, the haters at the BDS movement were euphoric over Airbnb’s anti-Semitic decision to exclude Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria from their platform. Many in the fake news media bragged openly about this so-called “victory” against Israel. Mentally challenged and ill-informed celebrities such as Danny Glover expressed support on Twitter.

Here is the bad news for the BDS movement: the decision is likely a violation of the U.S anti-discrimination laws, and could be overturned in the future. However, even if this shameful decision by Airbnb is not overturned, it will not change the fact that Israel is crushing the bigoted and racist BDS movement. The events in Israel this weekend (which the mainstream media did not bother to report) is further evidence of that.

First, Israel finalized an $8 billion deal with Italy, Cyprus, and Greece to supply natural gas via an underwater pipeline to Europe. Once complete (within the next 5 years), billions of dollars in revenue will pour into Israel’s rapidly growing coffers. In addition, by supplying natural gas to Europe, Israel will obtain significantly more diplomatic clout with the pro-Palestinian European Union, since the EU is desperately trying to reduce its dependence on Russian natural gas.

Second, the President of Chad, Idriss Deby, became the first leader of the central African nation to visit Israel. Chad was blackmailed by the various Arab countries into cutting ties with Israel in 1972. However, after 46 years, Chad (a Muslim-majority country) has decided to renew diplomatic relations with Israel. African countries are developing ties with Israel rapidly because of the benefits that Israeli ingenuity and innovation bring to their respective countries. Israel’s invaluable expertise in field after field will eventually translate into support at the United Nations from African countries. Perhaps not overnight, but certainly with time. The terrorists in Ramallah and the thugs of the BDS movement should be very concerned about this trend, since African votes at the UN keep the “Palestinians” relevant.

Lastly, (and Airbnb should place close attention) Israel’s Ministry of Tourism announced that it broke 2017’s record for incoming tourists, which is expected to reach a 4 million tourism mark by the end of 2018. Not bad for a weekend’s work in Israel.

“Meeting Israeli leaders, Chad president says he wants to restore diplomatic ties,” b November 25, 2018:

In an unprecedented visit to Israel, Chadian President Idriss Déby on Sunday told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin that he wishes to restore diplomatic relations with the Jewish state, 46 years after ties between the two countries were severed.

Netanyahu, meanwhile, hinted that he intends to travel to additional Arab countries in the near future, following his surprise visit to Oman in October for the first trip to the country by an Israeli prime minister in over 20 years.

Netanyahu and the leader of the Muslim-majority African country met for a one-on-one meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon, after which they made comments to the press.

“The relations between our countries were cut in 1972 for specific historic reasons, but our special relations continued all the time,” said Déby. “The current visit to your beautiful country expresses our desire to take the relations that existed all the time and make them stronger.

“The resumption of diplomatic relations with your country, which I desire, does not make us ignore the Palestinian issue,” he continued. “My country is profoundly attached to the peace process and has shaped the Arab peace initiative, the Madrid principles and existing agreements.”…
