An interesting debate regarding the future and effectiveness of the BDS movement. Omar Baddar carrries the BDS party line and emphasises cohesion of the Palestinian struggle, yet they seek paradoxically to disavow Gilad Atzmon for being critical of Jewish Power and culture that they say they wish to change. Puzzling indeed.
What goals has the BDS movement achieved so far? Does it aim for a constructive solution to the conflict? How should Israel react to it? Norman Finkelstein and Noam Chomsky agree that the goal of the movement is to destroy Israel – how valid is this judgment? Can the movement reinvent itself and win support from those who criticize it today? CrossTalking with Gilad Atzmon, Eric Walberg and Omar Baddar.
