The fact that a person advocates BDS in no way implies that they are 
antisemitic. I am a member of the Bicycology collective and we have 
donated money to Aktivix (we use the wiki) - I don't think we would have 
done so if we had known of this policy. What next, a ban on Tibetan 
support groups for being anti-Chinese? This disturbs me.
