On September 6, Canadian author, commentator, and broadcaster Michael Coren wrote the following absurd tweet to his 12,500 followers which prompted HonestReporting Canada’s response, also below:
@michaelcoren: Drawing a moral equivalence b/w #Israel supporters confronting #BDS and BDSers committed to #Israel‘s destruction is absurd.

Coren’s tweet also drew rebuke from several others in the twitterverse:
Coren’s only response back to date was to state:
No one is denying the suffering that Palestinians have endured, but if the goal is to be honest and to have a constructive debate about this issue, drawing a moral equivalence between Israel supporters and BDS advocates is beyond the pale.
