The Guardian’s Comment is Free has just published a new piece I wrote about the burgeoning movement demanding accountability for Israeli war crimes during the Gaza war. I address the question of whether the international effort this time will be more successful than past stalled efforts that followed Israeli atrocities like the 2006 Lebanon war. While I don’t have a definitive answer, I note that momentum is greater and specific efforts by human rights campaigners more organized than in the past. I note increased interest in the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions movement even among American Jews.
There’s a pretty lively debate in the comment section to which I invite you.
