Interview With Omar Bargouti


"The global movement for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights was initiated by Palestinian civil society in 2005. BDS is a strategy that allows people of conscience to play an effective role in the Palestinian struggle for justice."

The Palestinian resistance is becoming more sophisticated, they are coming out with different ideas and ideologies, different methods and weapons. Where before it was mostly violent militaristic resistance it's not political, strategic and peaceful as well.

Omar Bargouti is one such peaceful resistance fighter. He co founded a number of initiatives such as PACBI (Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israe) and now BDS. He states clearly and succinctly the forms of oppression and criminality practiced by Israel. His method is peaceful, logical and so far fool proof. Which is why you find most of the attacks against him and the BDS so to be hogwashy. Yes. hogwashy.

I was able to speak to Omar Yesterday via skype. The interview was between Sydney Australia and Al Qurds (Jerusalem) Palestine.

The interview is in Arabic:
