Earlier this month I reported how the BDS movement said that pension fund giant TIAA-CREF had sold their holdings in Israeli company Sodastream, and how the Israel-haters claimed this was a victory for their cause - even if they didn’t know the reasons for the sale of the stock.
I noted that it was clear from TIAA-CREF’s own statements that any Israeli stock they sell was not because of the BDS movement.
My mistake was that I assumed that the BDSers weren’t lying about the sale to begin with!
I just received two PDF documents, showing TIAA-CREF’s holdings in their CREF Stock Account and in the TIAA-CREF Growth and Income Fund as of June 30, 2013. They detail their holdings in these funds in full detail, and the documents were generated on July 23.
Why does anyone still give these guys any validity?
