Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I have been to Palestine where Ive witnessed the racially segregated housing and the humiliation of Palestinians at military roadblocks. I cant help but remember the conditions we experienced in South Africa under apartheid. We could not have achieved our freedom without the help of people around the world using the nonviolent means of boycotts and divestment to compel governments and institutions to withdraw their support for the apartheid regime. Omar Barghoutis lucid and morally compelling book is perfectly timed to make a major contribution to this urgently needed global campaign for justice, freedom and peace.”

—Archbishop Desmond Tutu

THIRTY YEARS ago, an international movement utilizing boycott, divestment, and sanction (BDS) tactics rose in solidarity with those suffering under the brutal apartheid regime of South Africa. The historic acts of BDS activists from around the world isolated South Africa as a pariah state and heralded the end of apartheid.

Now, as awareness of the apartheid nature of the State of Israel continues to grow, Omar Barghouti, founding member of the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, presents a renewed call to action. Aimed at forcing the State of Israel to uphold international law and universal human rights for the Palestinian people, here is a manifesto for change.

“No one has done more to build the intellectual, legal and moral case for BDS than Omar Barghouti. The global Palestinian solidarity movement has been transformed and is on the cusp of major new breakthroughs.”

—Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo

"There is no more comprehensive and persuasive case than his for boycott, divestment, and sanctions to end the Israeli occupation and establish the ethical claim of Palestinian rights.”

—Judith Butler, University of California at Berkeley

Book News Annotation:

Barghouti (a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel and the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign) lays out the case for adopting similar tactics against Israeli injustice towards the Palestinians that successfully ended South African apartheid--namely, constructing an international boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign, led by Palestinian civil society groups, to isolate Israel until it fully complies with its obligation under international law. Specifically, Barghouti (and his colleagues) demand an end to the occupation and colonization of all lands occupied in 1967 and a dismantling of the "apartheid wall" in the West Bank; recognition of the right of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and respecting, protecting, and promoting the right of return for Palestinian refugees. He reflects on the reasons why such a campaign is needed (i.e., Israeli intransigence and American international hegemony), explores lessons from the anti-apartheid boycott movement, and considers issues of tactics and strategy.

Synopsis:

As international awareness of the apartheid nature of Israel grows, Omar Barghouti offers a manifesto for winning Palestinian civil rights.

Synopsis:

"Barghouti is the future. He is intelligent, empowered, and non-violent. He is completely impressive. It would help Americans to see such a picture of Palestinian political engagement, when they have such a distorted image of who Palestinians are. Some day they will know him."—Phillip Weiss, author ofMondoweiss: The War of Ideas in the Middle East

—Naomi Klein, author ofThe Shock Doctrine and No Logo

“I commend this excellent book by Omar Barghouti…BDS is a call to refuse to be silent in the face of military occupation of the Palestinian people by the Israeli regime, apartheid, and colonialism. BDS is a nonviolent way in which each of us and our governments can follow our conscience and rightful moral and legal responsibility and act now to save Palestinian lives by demanding that the Israeli apartheid regime give justice and equality to all."

—Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate (1976)

Some day they will know him.--Phillip Weiss, author of Mondoweiss: The War of Ideas in the Middle East

From Operation Cast Lead to the recent assault on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, both the severity and the notoriety of Israel's many human rights abuses have begun to seep into the public consciousness and convince growing numbers of the apartheid nature of the Jewish State.

Boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) efforts helped topple South Africa's brutal apartheid regime. In this timely collection, Palestinian writer Omar Barghouti makes the case for a renewed campaign to force the state of Israel to uphold international law and universal human rights for the Palestinian people via a global academic, cultural, and economic BDS movement.

Omar Barghouti is an independent Palestinian commentator and human rights activist. He is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. He holds bachelor and master's degrees in electrical engineering from Columbia University, NY, and a master's degree in philosophy (ethics) from Tel Aviv University.
