"A very important component of Palestinian resistance to Israel’s regime
are Palestinians in exile, who represent half the Palestinian people. We
are not just talking about refugee communities, who are clearly the most
important to consider..."
Sounds good to me.
Add to that his explicit call for right of return.
As to whether Omar has, as Amith believes, junked national liberation - or
whether in fact his emphasis on rights is purely tactical - we can't really
know without knowing more about Omar's overall political vision. What we
CAN say is that BDS momentum and victories is one of several factors
leading to informal discussions among young Palestinians about the need for
new political ideas and organizations outside of ALL existing factions.
