Boycotting Israel is Wrong: The Progressive Path to Peace Between Palestinians and Israelis

Paperback
This is the first progressive book to argue that the BDS movement (boycott, divestment and sanctions) is the wrong way to broker peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The BDS movement against Israel has gained traction and publicity worldwide. Yet here, Philip Mendes and Nick Dyrenfurth - politically progressive commentators - argue that BDS is too blunt an instrument to use in a such a complex situation. Instead, they propose a solution that supports Israel's existence and Palestinian rights to a homeland, urging mutual compromise and concessions from both sides.
