Open Letter to Codepink Activists Trixie Lamonte and Ariel Gold

Dear Trixie and Ariel,

You are actually somewhat fortunate.  An older, wiser, more experienced individual recently suggested I would do better with these letters if I was a little less vicious and a little more educational. Said individual’s logic was that if I jump all over someone I find to have expressed ignorant or distasteful viewpoints against Israel and or the Jewish people, the likelihood of the target of my attack paying any attention to my words is minimal at best.  So yes, since I received this advice from this individual who I highly respect, I will refrain from calling you the names I so wish to call you.

What I will do instead, and to be frank I will do so in only a few words, is attempt to wake you up to the misrepresentation of reality your stance as a pro BDS Jew displays.  I’ll throw you a bone and start from a place that says peace can be achieved and Israel’s occupation of the territories is the biggest obstacle, even though I know better.  The BDS movement is an organization whose ultimate purpose is to bring down the Jewish government in Israel.  It is not in place to protect Palestinians, to fight terrorism and violence, or to better the economic lives of the Palestinian people.  It exists for one purpose and one purpose only.  To destroy Israel as it exists today.

Don’t be fooled by the eloquent words of its leaders, the highest ranking of which was educated in Israel at a Jewish run University by Jewish people and Jewish professors.  Don’t be fooled by its claim to improve labor conditions of the Palestinian workforce.  Their attack on Sodastream caused the unemployment of countless Palestinians, Palestinians satisfied and comfortable working for what BDS calls “the Occupier”.

This is hypocrisy on the highest scale.  The BDS movement, supported by some misguided entertainers such as Roger Waters who lives off his millions upon millions while using the Palestinian people to either satisfy his hatred for Jews or at best make himself feel important, is a movement riddled in inconsistency.  It does nothing to better the lives of the Palestinian people.  It keeps quiet while Hamas uses the people as human shields, yet it attacks businesses that provide Palestinians with an income.

So when you make the choice to show your support for an organization whose sole purpose is to destroy Israel’s Jewish government, you are doing nothing remotely humanitarian.  Peace is a beautiful thing.  I often pray for it.  But know this.  All the BDS Movement is is an offshoot of the terrorist organizations that ultimately wish to see the death of all Jews, the two of you included. What I hope you will come to realize is that in putting your support behind BDS, and doing so in front of a holy Jewish site, all you are doing is feeding into their devious ways, and ironically making peace for everyone more of a long shot.

Sincerely,

David Groen
