Antony Loewenstein on the boycott, divestment and sanction of Israel (Discussant 2 of 5)

December 13, 2011 4

Antony Loewenstein responds to This Blog Harms' NAJ Taylor, who asks: "To what extent is the BDS effective at balancing competing "harms" - the use of "non-violent" harm to injure Israel economically, politically, reputationally and militarily and the relief of the "violent harm" endured by Palestinians under Israeli occupation? How useful is a campaign that "balances competing harms" for the Israeli and Palestinian, as well as Jewish and Muslim, diaspora - and wider Middle Eastern community - in Australia?"
