Anti-Israel divestment movement gaining traction at US colleges

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Jewish hatred on a global scale

End times bible prophecy revolves around the tiny nation of Israel and how the world reacts to the little Jewish State.  In fact we are told by several of the Old Testament Prophets that the world will ultimately try to destroy that which God has planted, (the Jews in their homeland).  So it should not come as a surprise to students of bible prophecy that the hatred the world holds towards Israel will grow more virulent as each day passes.

Among those nations you will find no repose, no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the LORD will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life. Deuteronomy 28:65-66 NIV

Anti-Israel divestment movement gaining traction at US colleges
The ritual has become increasingly commonplace on many American college campuses: A student government body takes up Israeli policy toward the Palestinians and decides whether to demand their school divest from companies that work with the Jewish state. In the United States, Israel's closest ally, the decade-old boycott-divestment-sanctions movement, or BDS, is making its strongest inroads on college campuses. No U.S. school has sold off stock and none is expected to do so anytime soon. Still, the current academic year is seeing an increasing number of divestment drives on campus. Since January, student governments at four universities have taken divestment votes.

European Affairs: BDS spreading like wildfire in Europe?
A lack of US-style resistance to the growing BDS movement in Europe has ignited a worrisome trend across the continent. It is now up to pro-Israel groups to extinguish the flames.

Why Anti-Israel Boycott Is a 'Mockery' of the South African Struggle
Decades after an international boycott movement helped end South Africa's apartheid system, Palestinians in the Middle East are gaining traction with a similar campaign against Israel – even calling Israel an apartheid state. But is that an accurate comparison? Many South Africans like Olga Meshoe say, "no." Meshoe is the daughter of a member of the South African Parliament, who grew up under the apartheid system. "When I hear that Israel is an apartheid state, when people make that accusation, depending on the mood I'm in I either break out laughing or I get really, really angry – because it's an absolute lie," she said in a recent video.
