Judith Bulter

I disagree with Judith Butler. The BDS movement is meaningless if it is only confined to "occupation"--and it is clear that she is only talking about the occupation of 24% of Palestine. BDS movement SHOULD be against Zionism and should be aimed at boycotting all facets of Israeli occupation of Palestine, and the 1967 marking point is--or should be--irrelevant. I mean, I can't imagine that we would be debating whether the boycott of Apartheid South Africa should be directed at one district in South Africa. It was a movement against the entire state and the entire project. We need to do the same against Zionism, in all of its forms. (thanks Ali)
