There has been plenty of heat this Palestinian winter in the campaign for
Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

There have been some important victories, helped by the increased scrutiny
of Israeli state violence since October. And equally, the hysteria from
Israeli and Western political establishments over the “threat” posed by the
BDS campaign has reached new levels.
