Question: does BDS single out Israel unfairly?
The answer to this one is simple: there is no denying BDS singles out Israel – but not unfairly. Israel is a singular case and deserves singular attention not because its a Jewish regime but because its a colonialist regime, one that dominates by force of arms, an area of the middle east it has chosen to occupy. This occupation has led to an unspeakably grotesque persecution of the people of Palestine which gets worse and worse as the months go by. For decades the regime has consistantly ignored all diplomatic initiatives aimed at seeking an end to the conflict and justice for the people of Palestine. Sanctions are therefore the only peaceful way to bring pressure for change – and is perfectly legitimate.
