Neve Gordon: Still On the Fringes

Last year, Israeli professor Neve Gordon called for an international boycott of Israel.

He's back with another boycott-divestment-sanctions bromide -- this time on page 13 among the more receptive op-eds of The Observer.

BDS is not about a particular solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but the demand that Israel abide by international law and UN resolutions.

It is, accordingly, something that you can support if you are for a two-state solution or a one-state solution. You can even support it as a Zionist.

I'm not going to tell Gordon he can't express himself.

But as I pointed out last year -- when the LA Times published the Ben-Gurion U. professor's more well-known commentary -- Gordon represents nobody but himself and small handful of people like David Landau. So why would any op-ed editor elevate a fringe view like this?

very low level people like this Gordon, dont know how to atract attension, but unfortunetly I must say that he is succeeding to make a jock from Israel, as Israel even dont reply (many ambaseis all over the world, include Israel that DO NOTHING), i already know about some Belgiums activist that came to Israel to watch closely, this stupidity, and after they came back, no one mention to them the great help that Israel gave to th beduins all over the years, maybe he should come to Gaza and invite some international freinds, to see what happend with uhman rights there?? ha , maybe it is not so interesting, or not posible, so more easy on the Israeliens???!!!! what one stupid person can do, million intelegent can not corect.

Neve Godon: SHAME!
