Malcolm
In July 2005 a group of around 700 Palestinian civil society groups issued a call for boycotts, disinvestment and sanctions against Israel as part of an ongoing campaign for civil and political rights. At the core of their call were three criticisms of Israel:
1. its occupation and colonisation of Palestinian lands and construction of a segregation wall across the West Bank;

V roku 2005 sa palestínski aktivisti a aktivistky obrátili k svetovej občianskej spoločnosti s výzvou o zahájenie bojkotu Izraela. Podľa nich totižto palestínska spoločnosť vyčerpala všetky možnosti nenásilného odporu proti okupácií – pokojné demonštrácie sú násilne rozháňané, mierové rokovania slúžia ako pláštik pod ktorým Izrael naďalej kolonizuje Západný breh a rezolúcie OSN sú Izraelom ignorované.

Excellent intro to the BDS movement. It covers a number of the debates both within the movement and with those outside its ranks written as short essays from leading spokespeople of the campaign.

This was excellent! The case for BDS is made through a series of short essays looking at it from a variety of view points, making the case for BDS and answering some of the common arguments against it. A few of the essays repeated information and some were more informative than others but as a collection the case for BDS, as viewing Israel as an apartheid state and Israel's attempts rebrand using culture was well made.
"The strategic aim of the Palestinian struggle...must be to make the costs of
