Modernising Engage?

I just checked out the Engage website, you know, the one which describes itself as the "anti-racist campaign against antisemitism" and it appears that there is a bit of an antisemitism shortage.  The post before the last one is dated 6th September 2012 and it is the transcript of a conversation between Engage supremo, David Hirsh, and "a US-based investigative journalist and expert on the far right and conspiracy theories" called Chip Berlet.

Looking at the intro to the posting of the interview it turns out that,
This conversation happened on Monday, June 29th, 2009 but was not published until September 2012
2009? Why wasn't it published until this year? Never mind. That was just one post and there has been another post, by a Richard Gold, since then. It was posted on 18th October 2012 and it is, in total, as follows:

BDS does mean the end of the Jewish state.

At least i agree on one thing with Ahmed Moor when he says,

Ok fine. So BDS does mean the end of the Jewish state

So it’s not a campaign to end the occupation after all. Who’d have thought it.
It's the not very shattering news that BDS seeks the abolition of specifically Jewish statehood.  Let's follow that link.  It's Mondoweiss and a post dated, 22nd April 2010.  Wow, last month they posted an interview from 2009 and this month they have a not very informative link to a post from early 2010.

On the current monthly projection Engage's modernisation programme should all be over by Christmas.
