Leading international voices argue for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel.

The assault on Gaza continues; last November the world’s fourth largest military power killed at least 130 Palestinians in air strikes. Whilst a tenuous ceasefire is theoretically holding, Palestinians remain virtual prisoners and continue to be subject to Israeli military might. A revival in the call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) grows increasingly relevant.

In July 2011, Israel passed legislation outlawing the public support of boycott activities against the state, corporations, and settlements, adding a crackdown on free speech to its continuing blockade of Gaza and the expansion of illegal settlements. Nonetheless, the campaign for boycott, divestment, and sanctions continues to grow in strength within Israel and Palestine, as well as in Europe and the US.

This essential intervention considers all sides of the movement—including detailed comparisons with the South African experience—and contains contributions from both sides of the separation wall, along with a stellar list of international commentators.

-----------------------------------

“Provides clear arguments for international sanctions against Israel because of its treatment of the Palestinians. This excellent collection of essays is an essential text for anyone interested in why they should support the movement to boycott Israel. The essays are not just good reading; they are also an eloquent call to the world to give a damn.” – Ron Jacobs, COUNTERPUNCH
