Israel Denial is the first book to offer detailed analyses of the work faculty members have published—individually and collectively--in support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement; it contrasts their claims with options for promoting peace. The faculty discussed here have devoted a significant part of their professional lives to delegitimizing the Jewish state. While there are beliefs they hold in common—including the conviction that there is nothing good to say about Israel—they also develop distinctive arguments designed to recruit converts to their cause in novel ways. They do so both as writers and as teachers; Israel Denial is the first to give substantial attention to anti-Zionist pedagogy. No effort to understand the BDS movement’s impact on the academy and public policy can be complete without the kind of understanding this book offers.

"Barghouti is the future. He is intelligent, empowered, and non-violent. He is completely impressive. It would help Americans to see such a picture of Palestinian political engagement, when they have such a distorted image of who Palestinians are. Some day they will know him."—Phillip Weiss, author of Mondoweiss: The War of Ideas in the Middle East THIRTY YEARS ago, an international movement utilizing boycott, divestment, and sanction (BDS) tactics rose in solidarity with those suffering under the brutal apartheid regime of South Africa. The historic acts of BDS activists from around the world isolated South Africa as a pariah state and heralded the end of apartheid. Now, as awareness of the apartheid nature of the State of Israel continues to grow, Omar Barghouti, founding member of the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, presents a renewed call to action. Aimed at forcing the State of Israel to uphold international law and universal human rights for the Palestinian people, here is a manifesto for change. “No one has done more to build the intellectual, legal and moral case for BDS than Omar Barghouti. The global Palestinian solidarity movement has been transformed and is on the cusp of major new breakthroughs.” —Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo “I commend this excellent book by Omar Barghouti…BDS is a call to refuse to be silent in the face of military occupation of the Palestinian people by the Israeli regime, apartheid, and colonialism. BDS is a nonviolent way in which each of us and our governments can follow our conscience and rightful moral and legal responsibility and act now to save Palestinian lives by demanding that the Israeli apartheid regime give justice and equality to all." —Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate (1976)

India s Israel Policy

India's foreign policy toward Israel is a subject of deep dispute. Throughout the twentieth century arguments have raged over the Palestinian problem and the future of bilateral relations. Yet no text comprehensively looks at the attitudes and policies of India toward Israel, especially their development in conjunction with history. P. R. Kumaraswamy is the first to account for India's Israel policy, revealing surprising inconsistencies in positions taken by the country's leaders, such as Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, and tracing the crackling tensions between its professed values and realpolitik. Kumaraswamy's findings debunk the belief that India possesses a homogenous policy toward the Middle East. In fact, since the early days of independence, many within India have supported and pursued relations with Israel. Using material derived from archives in both India and Israel, Kumaraswamy investigates the factors that have hindered relations between these two countries despite their numerous commonalities. He also considers how India destabilized relations, the actions that were necessary for normalization to occur, and the directions bilateral relations may take in the future. In his most provocative argument, Kumaraswamy underscores the disproportionate affect of anticolonial sentiments and the Muslim minority on shaping Indian policy.

The Banality of Denial

The Banality of Denial examines the attitudes of the State of Israel and its leading institutions toward the Armenian Genocide. Israel's view of this issue has special significance and deserves an attentive study, as it is a country composed of a people who were victims of the Holocaust. The Banality of Denial seeks both to examine the passive, indifferent Israeli attitude towards the Armenian Genocide, and to explore active Israeli measures to undermine attempts at safeguarding the memory of the Armenian victims of the Turkish persecution. Such an inquiry into attempts at denial by Israeli institutions and leading figures of Israel's political, security, academic, and Holocaust "memory-preservation" elite has not merely an academic significance. It has considerable political relevance, both symbolic and tangible. In The Banality of Denial--as in Auron's previous work--moral, philosophical, and theoretical questions are of paramount importance. Because no previous studies have dealt with these issues or similar ones, an original methodology is employed to analyze the subject with regard to four domains: political, educational, media, and academic.

A brilliant demolition of the standard pretence that anti-Zionism is about frustration with Israel's treatment of the Palestinians rather than an obsessive fixation with the Jewish state. Efraim Karsh - Director, Middle East Forum & Research Professor of Middle East and Mediterranean Studies, King's College London I recommend Hadrian's Echo to anyone who wants to understand the phenomenon of Israel-bashing - Professor Gerald M. Steinberg, Bar Ilan University and Executive Director of NGO Monitor Guidance from the Bench You of all people, jury members, may not blindly assume that a law professor who forsakes varsity gown and corridors and decamps to Palestine packs his scholarly habits. You may not assume that he will, by force of habit, act objectively, impartially and with integrity. Yes, he was appointed for those qualities. But so was Richard Falk, who lately issued an apology for smearing Jews and dogs. Permit me to remind you of the weight of evidence before the recess. The Rapporteur's job title is a mine of disinformation: historically false, legally full of holes, explicitly anti-Israel.Worse than that, by pre-supposing Israel's guilt, the professor tramples the most important of legal principles: innocent until proven guilty. Turning their own words on renowned lawyers and journalists, the author hoists Israel's critics by their own petard. A man of wide experience, STEVE APFEL was born in Johannesburg, attended school in Pietersburg, did his national service as a naval cadet, studied politics and economics at the University of Witwatersrand, and has a master of economics from the University of SA. He was a District Officer in the former Rhodesia, an analyst for an international mining house, research manager for an electrical group, import agent in Britain, and since 1997, has been Director of the School of Management Accounting, Johannesburg. His travels and work have taken him through Western and Eastern Europe, Turkey, South America and the Middle East. His novel The Paymaster was published in 1997, and a second novel is in the pipeline. In 2002 he turned to activism and writer against the anti-Israel movement, and over a decade has upset apple carts aplenty.Books on the Arab-Israeli conflict are almost a genre, but Hadrian's Echo is a different book entirely. There is more than one conflict, and unless we know which one we mean we are doomed to move round Israel's detractors and not through them, and be left with understanding but no insight. (From Hadrian's Echo) The author proceeds with penetrating analysis to give that insight as he sweeps the reader through the fascinating contest of words, images and law. Questions, perhaps never before addressed, are tackled: What is the difference between a critic of Israel and an activist against Israel? Why do some Israelis toil to make their country an outcast among nations? How do people manage to deny the Holocaust without denying it? By what methods are our perceptions of the conflict manipulated by the media? Why do activists hold Israel to seemingly absurd standards? Why do critics of Israel accuse their opponents of trying to gag them when the opponents are doing no such thing? But the reader will find Hadrian's Echo much more than a scholarly work. It has a creative force that flows like a passion.And notwithstanding the grave issues handled, a sardonic humour runs through the book. We encounter species like the 'Uniquely Jewish bomb, ' the 'Cauliflower man, ' the 'Juggernaut Jew, ' and the 'Dinner-jacket denier.' Parts of the book have an interactive form that gets the reader involved. Other parts recreate a tribunal with the reader in the jury box. Hadrian's Echo is a book that entertains while it enlightens. All in all, it is both an essential work of reference and a wonderfully good read.

How can "Speaking Rights to Power" construct political will to respond to human rights abuse worldwide? Examining dozens of cases of human rights campaigns and using an innovative analysis of the politics of persuasion, this book shows how communication politics build recognition, solidarity, and social change. Building on twenty years of research on five continents, this comprehensive study ranges from Aung San Suu Kyi to Anna Hazare, from Congo to Colombia, and from the Arab Spring to Pussy Riot. Speaking Rights to Power addresses cutting edge debates on human rights and the ethic of care, cosmopolitanism, charismatic leadership, communicative action and political theater, and the role of social media. It draws on constructivist literature from social movement and international relations theory, and analyzes human rights as a form of global social imagination. Combining a normative contribution with judicious critique, this book shows how human rights rhetoric matters-and how to make it matter more.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

"As the crucifixes drenched with Jewish blood drop from our hands, we stand impotent and wordless before this tragedy of Israel and Palestine . . . In the name of the crucified Messiah, we must struggle against the conditions which make history a trail of crucifixions. Only then, in solidarity with Jews and Palestinians, can we dream of Messianic times, of a shalom without victims." With these words, theologian Rosemary Radford Reuther laid out the pitfalls for Christians entering the arena of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Nevertheless, in 1995, a small cohort of pacifist Christians decided to paddle against the currents of history, against the crusades, pogroms, and colonial enterprises of their co-religionists, toward that goal of "a shalom without victims." Setting up a project in the West Bank city of Hebron, over the next ten years Christian Peacemaker Teams forged relationships with Palestinians, Israelis, and internationals who were resisting the Israeli military occupation of Palestine. As "resident aliens" (See Exodus 23:9) they have sojourned in the Holy Land to support Palestinians and Israelis who reject violence as a means of solving the conflict, who think that one nation has no right to subjugate and exploit another, and who believe all the residents of the region are entitled to the same, exactly the same, human rights. This book charts the growth of CPT in Palestine, how it adapted to changing political conditions, spread to locations outside of Hebron, and developed networks with activists throughout Palestine and Israel.
