Jewish institution hosts Judith Butler, who renews support of BDS movement; 700-strong audience cheers boycott call.
BERLIN - The internationally renowned Jewish Museum in Berlin hosted a podium discussion on Saturday with US academic Judith Butler, who renewed her calls to boycott Israel. It appears to be the first anti-Israel event held in the Jewish museum since its opening in 2001 with the aim of exhibiting the 2,000- year history of Germanys Jews. At least 700 people attended the event.
The German taxpayer-funded museums decision to showcase a speaker in the capital city, which during the Nazi period served as the launching pad for a boycott movement against German-Jewish businesses, has raised eyebrows about the managements direction of the museum.
n an email to The Jerusalem Post on Saturday, Professor Gerald Steinberg, who heads the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, termed the cultural institution the Berlin anti-Jewish Museum.
Butler, a professor in the rhetoric and comparative literature departments at the University of California, Berkeley, told a sold out audience in the courtyard of the museum that she accepts a version of a boycott against Israel, and stressed that the Boycott, Sanctions, and Divestment (BDS) movement is non-violent resistance against Israel. She claimed that 1,000 Jewish groups agree with her.

Whose side are they on?
“Never Again’’ is happening again.
Juden! Wehrt Euch! Kauft nicht bei Israel!
All liberals are insane, but liberals who are Jews are straight-jacket material.
Heartbreaking that they would let the anti-semitic hard-left get any voice in this museum :-(
BUNCH OF KAPO’S!
There is no reason for Muslim terrorists to stop their terror because it does work so well for them.
“Understanding Hamas/Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the Left, that are part of a global Left, is extremely important.”
She gets part of that right.
The Left is the world's primary source of Jew hatred, terrorism, and the suppression of individual liberties.
Yet, Jews in every democratic nation march to the polls and vote for the Left in overwhelming numbers.
In Florida, American Jews will give Barack Obama at least 65% of their vote...and quite possibly 4 more years in the White House.
Insane, completely insane.
Self loathing Jews. We got a lot of those types in this country as well.
If they don’t care, why should I?
Judith Butler (born February 24, 1956) is an American post-structuralist philosopher, who has contributed to the fields of feminist philosophy, queer theory, political philosophy, and ethics. She is a professor in the Rhetoric and Comparative Literature departments at the University of California, Berkeley.
Butler currently lives with her partner, the political scientist Wendy Brown. Butler identifies as an anti-Zionist Jew and is a critic of Israeli politics.
I hear they have a pretty good Funktionshäftling exhibition.

Uncritical Exuberance? Judith Butler’s take on Obama
“we finally have one of us in the White House”
The whole world is upside down
“Never again” has become “Play it again, Sam” for leftists
So in other words she’s a Communist first.
It's understandable why she's a self-hating Jew. She was probably raised at least somewhat traditionally Jewish, and when she decided she was a lesbian, she had all sorts of problems dealing with that, and probably felt deep down that she was doing wrong. So rather than learning to live with her personal choices, she needed to place the blame for her personal, emotional pain, which she blamed on her Jewish heritage. So what better way to "get even with that which causes her pain" than to try to destroy the Jewish homeland, and side with the people who want to exterminate the Jews.
The Nazis could not have run the Holocaust as efficiently as they did without the assistance of anti-Semitic Jews.
The left wing is a suicide cult. Especially for Jews.
Yeah, then there was “die Juden sind euer Verderben!” Time was, 1920’s liberal Berlin was the only place in Germany where Jews felt welcome. “Cabaret”, anyone?
Anyway, how ironic that self-haters are now teaming up with same-old same-old German hatred for Jews.
Check out “LATMA TV” on youtube. Worth it.
The Germans should beware an academic from Berkeley. This woman is a leftist weasel.
Really? I thought Hamas and Hezbollah were a bunch of cutthroats. I don’t see how calling them progressives and of the left is helpful. I can’t stand those people, either. I think they’re ignorant and generally naive.
Are you sure that is a picture of a female?
That’s about normal for the “butch” ones. I’ve had to spend a few years in such company. And yes, it’s even worse when you have to listen to them.
“”Germans! Defend yourselves! Don’t buy from Jews.” (”Deutsche! Wehrt Euch! Kauft nicht bei Juden!” ...
This would be the “people who say they are Jewish but actually are not practicing Jews of any congregation”. These should be known as JINOs. There were very many of them who could be found assisting the National Socialist German Workers Party, who later treated them so well they invited them for permanent camps in the countryside (along with Poles, Russians, gypsies, Catholics, Lutherans, Coptics..anyone who defied the new State).
Appalling these people advocate to boycott Israel. Because without Israel there IS no homeland for Jews in the world, period. For JINOs this is not a problem— because they only trot out their “religion” when they are “offended” by orthodoxy, and of course everything they identify as “Zionism”.
“Are you sure that is a picture of a female?”
?, I’m pretty sure it’s a boy named Judas from the picture.
