BDS: Is Anti-Israel Boycott Good News for Palestinians? – Christa Case Bryant
Palestinians engaging with Israelis – in business, sports, culture, and dialogue to address the conflict – are increasingly being pressured to quit. They are branded negatively as “normalizers” or even traitors, and some have received death threats. Leslie Ordeman, press attache for the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, says, “The anti-normalization movement feels almost Orwellian. It effectively cuts off any type of interaction between average Palestinians and average Israelis….There is no room to engage with anyone who might actually need to be convinced.”  (Christian Science Monitor)

A group of Palestinian activists on Friday stopped a conference organized by the “Creativity for Peace” group in east Jerusalem from going ahead after accusing it of contributing to “normalization” with Israel. Creativity for Peace is a non-profit organization that works with young Israeli and Palestinian women on “collaborative leadership and peacemaking.”  (Ma’an News-PA)
