Eric Swalwell vs barbara lee on anti BDS resolution 246 in the pages of The Castro Valley Forum

Castro Valley Forum Newspaper issue 30 July 31st 2019

This week's issue of The Castro Valley Forum printed my letter. It pretty much speaks for it's self. Just in case you didn't know yet the resolution passed by a very wide margin.



I'm going to pivot to another part of The West Coast when it comes to all thing BDS fail. I just recently got back from a trip to Seattle. I grabbed this visitor's guide for some lite reading for the flight back home but I wish I had taken a closer look at it while I was still in Seattle. I would have certainly made a point to stop at Aviv Hummus Bar while I was there so I guess I'll have to wait till next time. But it's nice to see the ad in the visitor's guide just the same as it was to see ZIM cargo containers at the port of Seattle.



BDS fails are all around us from the halls of Washington D.C. to The Great Pacific Northwest and down to The San Francisco Bay Area.

August 2nd Update: Red Sea Diving Resort staring Chris Evans who plays a Mossad agent instead of Captain America this time finally showed up on NetFlix in the past few days. The movie tells the story of Israel's operation to save Ethiopian Jews from genocide in war torn Sudan. I finished the movie last night and I enjoyed it despite the mediocre reviews it's gotten. It doesn't have the edge of your seat thrills and tension to the degree that Munich does or other Middle East dramas like The Kingdom or Argo. But it does have a clear cut story line and narrative with out getting bogged down in any convoluted mixed messaging as did 17 Days in Entebbe. Evans is compelling in his role and supported by a good cast. Not a great movie per se but over all still not bad either especially for a NetFlix original film check it out.

Clearly NetFlix does not support BDS. Can't wait for season 3 of Fauda to come out!

Israel is every where in The Bay


One would think a bus stop advertisement like this would only be seen in a city in Israel like Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. But not so, I took this photo in San Jose of all places. The most peculiar thing about this is that it's all completely in Hebrew, not a single word in English.


And meanwhile back in The East Bay ZIM keeps on trucking.

A good weekend for Israel and a bad weekend for BDS in San Francisco

Israel friendly congressman Eric Swalwell and j Weekly reporter Dan Pine
I have to admit I get a bit nervous whenever Israel becomes the topic of any sort of forum dominated by democrats thanks to the far left leaning elements that are all but certain to be there like a parasitic infection. This weekend however during the democratic convention in San Francisco we saw BDS get hit with yet another fail as 6 anti-Israel resolutions got decidedly dealt with by the moderate and other wise more rational members of the democratic party.

Read on for more details https://www.jweekly.com/2019/06/01/at-state-convention-california-dems-reject-anti-israel-language-in-resolutions/

Also this weekend, congratulations to Eric Swalwell for a well done town hall discussion as he tackled hard hitting questions on everything from gun violence to anti-semitism.

On the Trevor Noah show Monday night
This is something that came out of The Castro Valley Forum Newspaper earlier this year. I think it's worth sharing here because it speaks well to Eric Swalwell's character but it's unfortunately also not the sort of thing that's likely to make mainstream news headlines.

Bay Area public El Al airline advertisements

This freeway billboard might as well just say BDS Fail.
San Francisco International

El Al is flying in the Bay Area skies, ZIM is trucking through Bay Area roads and BDS just keeps on failing. All is well : )

El Cerrito
March 25th Update: Went to a Burgerim for the first time today. Awesome sliders you can customize and I loved their potato chip style fries. The one I went to today was in El Cerrito but there's already a few others in The Bay Area with even more coming later this year thank you Tel Aviv.

From San Francisco to Tel Aviv in style meet the new Haifa dreamliner


Despite my love/hate relationship with San Francisco I still think this is pretty cool. Even a small "BDS fail" tag line some where on that fuselage art might have been a nice touch though.... to https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/El-Al-plane-decorated-for-new-flight-to-San-Francisco-Las-Vegas-588057


On a side note, Avengers fans in Israel came up with a great way to entertain the audience waiting for the movie start time. The movie was nothing less then epic by the way go see it now!

Meanwhile, ZIM keeps on truckin as BDS keeps on failing.


With locations in Palo Alto and San Francisco, Oren's Hummus is a great Israeli owned restaurant for both take out and dining.

Eric Swalwell presidential campaign kick off in Dublin California today




I don't care what people have to say about his chances given the crowded democratic field right now. A crowded field with other moderate contenders who I also like by the way such as Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar. And I don't even care what any polls or the talking heads on TV have to say. At this point and time this is who I want to see as the next president of the United States so I'm all in for Eric Swalwell for 2020. . . .

Res. 246 go to . . .

Amen to that!

Update April 9th: Well look what just showed up in the mail today. I'd be more happy about this if the democratic field wasn't so damn crowded already but that won't stop me from going to Dublin this Sunday afternoon.
