Felson offers a further comment on the controversy he started on this site about nonviolent resistance:
Jimmy Carter writes briefly about this in his new book, recounting his visit with Hamas leaders in '08:
"We pursued the concept of nonviolent resistance with Hamas leaders and gave them documents and video presentations on the successful experiences of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others. However, they do not believe that the Israeli occupation can be ended through such means, because of the lack of positive response byduring the relatively nonviolent early days of the first intifada."
I wonder: Would the experience of nonviolent resistance (and how it would be portrayed in the media) be different for Arabs living in Israel, as opposed to those in the occupied lands? And would it even matter?
