Against Apartheid: The Case for Boycotting Israeli Universities
By Ali Abunimah. Voices resound throughout this book with the reasoned argument that Israeli apartheid must be ended—and the way for intellectuals and artists and free thinkers to participate in this struggle is to boycott Israeli institutions that participate in and benefit from the occupation of Palestinian lands. This rich collection of essays is a handbook for scholars and activists who would like to participate in the growing Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Focusing on the complicity of Israeli universities in maintaining the occupation of Palestine, and on the repression of academic and political freedom for Palestinians, Against Apartheid powerfully explains why scholars and students throughout the world should stand against the apartheid state of Israel now.
Against Apartheid is a tour de force—a must read that belongs on the nightstand of every decent human being concerned with peace and justice. Superbly edited, it brings together the most powerful and cogent cases ever made for BDS: the now widely global, non-violent civil disobedience that Palestinians and their supporters have launched against the viciously monstrous Zionist theft of the Holy Land.
BDS is the civilized people’s response to the barbarity of the Israeli colonial occupation of Palestine. Finally, a relentlessly persuasive body of brilliant scholarship helps prove the point.
