This is a comment I submitted to an article in Inside Higher Ed reviewing a book criticizing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement to end USA support of Israeli apartheid in Palestine.
Assuming this review is accurate, it amazes me that Zionist critics of BDS never acknowledge US support for the Zionist movement. So they act like BDS activists convincing a grocery store not to carry Strauss Group hummus is a direct threat to world Jewry and ignore the actual damage that $3 billion annually of military aid to Israel does to Palestinians. Or when BDS activists object to a relationship between a U.S. university and an Israeli university which furthers the Zionist colonization project in Palestine is a “threatening ideas” while the Zionists prevent Palestinian scholars from traveling all the time. The object of BDS in the United States is not 1-state or 2-state: it’s ending our complicity in Zionist war crimes.
