In a nutshell, this is another BDS so called victory that turns out to be a complete hoax.  It makes sense. The BDS campaign is not really about money- I don’t think any BDSer is as optimistic as to believe they can shatter israel’s economy.
BDS is about having the fattest, thickest letters in headlines  – The actual story does’nt really matter.
So what do we have here this week?
Last Friday I came across an allegedly epic BDS victory post saying:
BDS WIN: TIAA-CREF Removes Caterpillar from Social Choice Funds!
I got in and read that the anti-Israel campaign had convinced the major pension fund TIAA-CREF to drop Caterpillar (CAT) from its “Social Choice Portfolio” because of it’s business with Israel.
Ofcourse I did some more research…  and of course, and this is a complete fabrication, a bunch of cut-and-pasted half facts.
Here is the Victory announcement:
 And some tweets:
Here is a little explanation on what’s really happend:
 
Awesome’ isn’t it? calling for Boycott of a company that doesn’t sell to Israel (when Israel’s your target…) and calling it a success when some one does?
Oh, and they forgot this: Caterpillar had recently made business with Palestinian Tractor and Equipment Co. Ltd.! But hey, who cares?  if what gets you headlines- Not actual facts, and not even positive ones.
