Here’s a remarkable index of the surge in popularity of Palestinian solidarity activism on the part of the lib-left intelligentsia. The Atlantic is conducting a poll of readers on the nonfiction book to read this March and Ali Abunimah’s The Battle for Justice in Palestine is in second place, with nearly a quarter of the votes (Susan Cain’s book Quiet is leading the field right now).
The voting ends Friday, and readers can hop in.
Quite a moment. You can read an excerpt of the book here: Does Israel Have A Right to Exist as a Jewish state? You can buy the book here. You can read an interview with Abunimah here. And here is Abunimah speaking about the power of BDS in highlighting a simple fact, that millions of Palestinians have no rights under Israeli governance.
