It is urgent to forsake old formulas for “peace” and start looking for just and viable alternatives.
“Kids Court in Conflict,” sponsored by UK Zionist group Yachad, claims to support Palestinian children but actually backs their oppressors.
Moves to “recognize Palestine” and co-opt the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement aim to guarantee Israel’s survival as a racist state.
For the second time in recent months, a post espousing extraordinarily racist views, this time comparing Black people and Palestinians, has been removed from the Israeli publication.
The author effectively dismisses the Palestinian right of return as a fundamental human right central to their struggle and to a just peace.
Anti-BDS liberals have taken racism a step further than Reagan and Thatcher dared to go with South Africa.
BDS should not be seen as a threat but as an invitation to free oneself from the painful contradiction of advocating democracy while defending and supporting oppression.
Israel’s attack on Gaza in 2008 and 2009 prompted Rabbi Brant Rosen to reject Zionism.
