A British court decision earlier this week marks an important advance for those who fight for justice, Palestinian rights and a peaceful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict.In the case of boycotts or sanctions against Israel's occupation, colonization, exploitation and widespread subjugation of Palestinians, the Israeli government and pro-Israeli zealots around the world are trying frantically to equate such political protests against Israeli criminal actions with anti-Semitism and delegitimization of the state of Israel.The truth is that BDS and other peaceful political actions critique Israel's political actions – its mistreatment, discrimination, occupation, colonization and exploitation of Palestinians in Israel, in the occupied territories and in refugee exile – and seek to pressure it politically to respect existing legal provisions that assert the rights of Palestinians and existing restrictions on the actions of occupying powers.This British legal decision is significant because it both supports the free speech-based aspects of the right to protest politically against Israeli criminal policies and rejects the increasingly feeble Israeli attempt to label any critics of Israeli policies as anti-Semites.
