Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions? Pendle Hill Pamphlet 445
Longtime Quaker Zionist Steve Chase wonders if a just and peaceful future for Palestinians depends on nonviolent international pressure directed at the State of Israel through boycotts, divestment, and sanctions seeking full compliance with international law and universal human rights. This pamphlet briefly describes Palestinian and Zionist/Israeli history since the late nineteenth century, the development of the BDS movement and Quaker response to it, and what led Steve Chase’s perspective to shift over time. Discussion questions included.
