How will BDS help resolve the Israel/Palestine conflict?

A:

It is clear from the drastically deteriorating conditions in Israel/Palestine that the “peace process” initiated late last century has not helped resolve this issue. While BDS alone cannot resolve the conflict, the history of similar movements in South Africa, the U.S. and elsewhere tells us that these tactics can effect real change. A non-violent, grassroots movement such as this brings the necessary pressure and incentives needed to alter oppressive policies, and creates the conditions for meaningful negotiations based on principles of international law and respect for human rights. Indeed, the major successes of the Palestinian BDS movement  have forced governments, businesses, academic institutions, and civil society organizations worldwide to consider the harm Israeli policies cause both  Palestinians and Israelis -- something that decades of the “peace process” and UN resolutions never achieved.
