I think that well meaning American and European liberals make a mistake in failing to recognize that Israeli liberals, (despite our lack of cohesion and failure to remove the Israeli right-wing from power), are on the front line. When the BDS movement targets the universities and other liberal organizations it strengthens the ability of the Right to muzzle and demonize the Left. BDS, if used at all, shout be directed like a snipers rifle and not as a scatter gun. In reference to Dr. Hawking's refusal to attend a conference in Israel, I think that as long as Israel's right-wing is unfettered the phenomenon will continue to grow and Israelis will suffer from it perhaps more than Palestinians with benefit thereby.
