Edwards spent 575 words and provided seven on-line links in presenting the case for boycotting Israel. He devoted 1758 words with 18 links to the Zionist, pro-Israel argument. The case for boycotting Israel is simple but the Zionists desperately need to obscure the truth.
BDS is the Palestinian answer to the failure of the United Nations to bring Israel to account. Not to support BDS would amount to nothing other than silent complicity in Israel’s violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention. Driven by its founding ideology, Israel’s war crimes are integral to the advance of the Zionist enterprise. The ideology’s narrow world view detaches it from the rest of humanity, including anti-Zionist Jews who abhor Israel’s human rights abuses and say firmly “not in my name”.
The restoration of justice in the Holy Land requires not only a repudiation of political Zionism but also its disempowerment. There is no place for either nuclear weapons or apartheid in the Holy Land. The Fourth Geneva Convention came into being as a counter to the harm caused by insane ideology. Let us now work for a renewal of respect for international humanitarian law and, with it, an end to Zionism.
