Continuing the discussion from Execution of Palestinian Exposes Israel’s Military Culture:
Our most effective way to fight the brutal regime in Israel is to join the B.D.S. movement. It was highly effective in overthrowing the racist regime in South Africa and the parallels in Israel/Palestine are very close.
That Israel is getting very nervous about the growing power of the B.D.S. movement is clear: they are targeting campuses around the world with demands to shut-down student organizers who wish to promote B.D.S. Unhappily they are succeeding at some. Israel is also using its enormous influence in governments and media to get laws passed out-lawing B.D.S. against Israel. Here in Canada, our federal government just passed a motion by overwhelming numbers to "condemn" individuals and organizations that participate in B.D.S. Yes, a toothless exercise so far but the pressure to make B.D.S. illegal is rising.
We must be ever-vigilant about our right to free speech and free association by resisting mightily these Israeli-lobby sponsored infringements of freedoms in our own countries.
Let's not forget that there are many Jews in Israel and around the world who fully support the B.D.S. movement against Israel. Their mantra is "Not in My Name!" These people are our brothers and sisters and we welcome them to the struggle to end the brutal tyranny in Israel / Palestine.
