Paradoxically,Burston's article illustrates the reason why the BDS movement is most critical. The "peace movement" in Israel has not had a major street protest or any significant resistance to Israeli occupation policies for years. The mainstream Israeli electorate has "surrendered" Israel into the hands of the Israeli military/right-wing. The BDS movement in the US has two objectives: one, to mobilize grassroots political resistance to the US Congress' total abdication to Israel policy and two: to force Israeli voters to come to grips with the fact that their every-day lives are going to be significantly impacted if Israel, much like South Africa in the past, finds itself a boycotted pariah State.
