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.

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.

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

This book reads like a collection of editorials instead of a fluid operational text of how to start a BDS movement. He says all the "right" things for his readers, South Africa this, peace that, but misses many fundamentals. He ignores the American involvement in the debate completely. If you are interested for a critique of the BDS movement, here it is

Mr Barghouti falls under the same problems as are mentioned here, just spanned over 300pgs.
