BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The University of Toronto’s Graduate Student Union has voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution to endorse the global campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel.

Activists said that over 150 graduate students at their annual general meeting, on Dec. 10, voted on the initiative which passed by an overwhelming 97 percent.

The resolution stated that the Graduate Students Union "endorse Palestinian civil society’s 2005 call for boycotts, divestment and sanctions by calling on the University of Toronto to refrain from investing in all companies complicit in violations of international law," a statement from the activists said.

The tide is changing. Hopefully this is only the beginning and what happened to South Africa will happen to those war criminals. It will be a great day when the Palestinians receive the justice they deserve and are finally free from this brutal military occupation.

U. of Toronto has some 15,803 graduate students and if 150 vote for BDS that's less than one percent of that specific population. Where's the victory in that? Sounds to me like delusional hyperbole.

Self chosen group of leftists. They also would vote to nationalize the Canadian economy, disband the Canadian military and condemn the Anglo-Saxon settlers of Canada for about any crime you can think of (too afraid to condemn the French LOL).
