Bargouthi is the driving force behind the BDS movement which I believe to be the last best hope to force Israel into good-faith peace negotiations leading to a just and final peace based on equality for all. His voice is one that should be encouraged and supported. If you care about stopping the bloodshed on both sides then you should read this book.

Omar Barghouti can fairly be described as the main figurehead of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement and anyone reading this book will understand why. Barghouti argues the case for BDS with intelligence, passion, and compelling moral force. After briefly reminding us of the sad state of affairs whereby the US consistently provides Israel with complete impunity from consequences for its on-going oppression and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians, Barghouti introduces boycott as a tactic whereby citizens of conscience throughout the world can seek to put pressure upon Israel to respect the legal and human rights of the indigenous people of that land.

Barghouti then goes on to discuss the concern already generated within Israel by the call for boycott, and the fear evidenced by politicians and commentators of Israel becoming a pariah state. Israel, it seems wants the best of both worlds (in its own terms) - permission to oppress and dispossess the Palestinians and still be held up as a bastion of culture and civilisation! Therein lies its 'weakness' (or perhaps its saving grace) as the possibility exists, through boycott and divestment, to persuade the Israeli politicians and the Israeli public who vote for them that continuing along the path of oppression and discrimination just isn't worth it.

This is no more oppressive than the actions of a caring parent who withholds a privilege from a young child who has hit another child. The aim is not to punish them for its own sake, but to educate them that violence towards other children is not acceptable. Similarly the aim of BDS is simply to teach Israeli politicians and the public who support them that they must start to treat the indigenous population of the land they are occupying with respect and dignity.

Format: Paperback
This a propaganda manifesto of the largest political organization financed and supported by anti Israel organizations be it radical Left, Muslim, radical Right anti Semitic organizations. As you read the book you are looking for a possible solution to the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. The narrative has no such direction. Barghuoti clearly confesses as in many of his declarations that no concessions of Israel really matter and Israel must be destroyed, replaced by a Palestinian Shariah. For him all of Israel, even Tel-Aviv, are "occupation". BDS thus is a weapon to undermine Israel economy, culture and science, to demonize de legitimize a UN country member. One would search for education of BDS to coexistence and peace. But it is not there. Make no mistake: No treaty, deal, understanding has value unless the public understands the benefit of such deal. To this effect readers may want to review the teachings of Palestinians that is on going presently in the West Bank. The Arabic is translated https://youtu.be/54L__2vHQLQ .

It's a great disclosure of injustice experience by Palestinian, which all the western world try to hide it.
Double standard of human right by western in defense of zionist racism and inhuman treatment to Palestinian

I thought BDS was going to be a self-help book about IBS (Irritable Bowel Sydrome), whoops. But this guy's diarrhea of the mouth is a comparable condition. Yet in the end (pun intended) you're just left feeling sick and nauseous in both ends.
