US government support for Israel has never been stronger.  But now a consumer boycott of Israel is gaining steam, and Israeli government officials are being openly confronted and denounced wherever they travel.

Author and activist Ali Abunimah says that this is evidence of a global movement against Israeli government policy breaking through. On this edition, Ali Abunimah explains why he thinks Israel has ‘lost the argument’ over who’s right and wrong…and where he thinks the movement to free Palestine is headed next.

  2. If you would spend some of your money developing what is you call Palestine or at least what Fatah and Hamas control in West Bank and Gaza, including infrastructure, hospitals, roads, electrical energy supply, community centres and particularly work places and businesses, while cooperating with your neighbours in Israel, who have lots of experience and would be very helpful, you could gain more recognition and advantage, while finally gaining independence.

    But, all what you want is to take from Jews what they created from nothing with hard work and ingenuity.

    This is why you will fail in no avail.
