So the basic tenant of human rights (that 'we are all born free and equal') now applies ONLY to the American Jew who condemns BDS, a movement that criticizes the treatment of Palestinian determination as inferior? Whatever your opinion on the views of this movement, it is not a fundamental one as in 'I hate Jewish people'. This is what you get for voting in an uncultured boor to run your country; an oxymoron written in to a human rights policy. Has this president EVER commented on the rights of the Palestinians? Why does he ONLY ever speak to just one sector of Israel and why is a stance on foreign policy working it's way into American human rights? Regardless of whether this president pushes forth policy that one agrees with, I would never vote for a leader who is insincere and duplicitous.
