There is only one metric by which BDS is a success: inciting anti-Semitic hatred on campus. The presence of “anti-Israel” activity virtually guarantees anti-Semitic incidents.
There is no “ultra-Orthodox offensive” — rather, the American liberal movements seek to change Israel to distract our attention from their collapse in America. The response is neither “ultra-” nor even Haredi; it merely seeks to preserve the unity of the Jewish People in the Jewish State.

They are inflating their importance on both sides of the Atlantic, and placing naked self-interest ahead of the unity of the Jewish People.
