Israel’s Willful Blindness to the Growing Settler Violence Shlomi Eldar - Portside - For years, however, we’ve been turning a blind eye to the uprooting of Palestinian olive trees and the perpetrators of the violent and vandalistic “price tag” attacks.

Why I Support the BDS Movement Against IsraelChris Hedges - Nation of Change "Justice for Palestine will never come from the traditional governmental institutions or political parties that administer power. These institutions have surrendered to moneyed interests. Justice will come only from us.
