Why a Children’s Book has Zionists Losing Their Minds

Steven Salaita Mondoweiss
In this moment of nuclear proliferation, police brutality, resurgent Nazism, and stunning inequality, the real enemy: is a children’s book. The offending title, P is for Palestine, was recently published by Golbarg Bashi and Golrokh Nafisi after a long crowdfunding campaign. Supporters of Israeli settlements and Zionist organizations have reacted as if it’s the Hamas charter.

Political Thought and Action to be Outlawed - U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel

Glenn Greenwald and Ryan Grim The Intercept
The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech. 43 senators — 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats — want to pass a law that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, which was launched in protest of the decades-old occupation of Palestine. The punishment: a minimum civil penalty of $250,000; a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.

LA Times Editorial Calls BDS 'Classic Tool of Political Expression'; BDS - 12 Years and Growing Strong

Los Angeles Times; Philip Weiss; Palestinian BDS Natl Comm
Truly free countries tolerate peaceful dissent. The 50-year occupation of the Palestinian territories seized during the Six-Day War has gone on for too long and must eventually be brought to an end. For Israeli authorities to demonize — or exclude — those who publicly oppose it is a terrible mistake. - Los Angeles Times Editorial.

Israeli Minster Calls for "Civil Targeted Killings" of BDS Leaders

Richard Silverstein Tikun Olam
The Israeli mainstream newspaper Yediot Ahronoth held its first conference targeting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The Yediot Achronot conference attacking BDS has become a veritable carnival of hate. Everyone from delusional Hollywood celebrities (Roseanne Barr) to cabinet ministers, to the leader of the Opposition have pledged fealty to the cause. Two of the speakers are under criminal investigation for corrupt political or financial dealings.
