This article is reminding me of a time when I was skeptical of all "Israeli Activism" or in this case people benefiting from the Israeli-given Privileges practicing activism whether in the west-bank or inside the "Israeli" territories. I thought of it sometimes as something needed at this time of fast communication and PR/Marketing..etc, it is needed to show that even Israelis (including those who voice anti-Zionist ideas and so on), who are after all a result of this post-European Colonialism, do have the differences in thoughts and actions required to assign "democratic" or "progressive" to this entity.
There's a sad fact in this world (in the West especially), that anything being said by a Palestinian or a non-Israeli or non-Jewish against the apartheid Israel most likely will be dismissed by a lot of people, the same people will pause if you backup your statement with a "a Jewish person said this" or a Jewish-Israeli person (this one is more effective). This adds a lot to the complexity of the Palestine question, it echoes what Edward Said included in his Orientalism book, quoting "thinkers" from History that the (subject "races" cannot talk for themselves, cannot represent themselves and thus the superior ones have to do it for them.)
I'm very confused to be honest, at some days I feel hope when I read Gideon Levy, or watch a youtube video documenting one Conference of him in the U.S talking about the Israeli society enabling Zionism and thus enabling Racism ..etc Other days the skepticism gets to me and overshadows the whole thing.
