What are you saying? Anything?
And why is it worth all those words to problematize something you believe in? Why on earth should the BDS movement — at this moment — have a focus on a mission of self-examination, instead of a focus on effective action?

You say that like it is a bad thing.
The goal is simple: end the occupation. The “depth” and “discussion of Jewish particularity” are wonderful goals — except people are dying and land is being stolen and water sources are being destroyed. Now is the time for action, not nuance.
College professors are the death of activism. Always critiquing instead of acting.
