(Non?)Violent Civil Disobedience
Last week I wrote a post on my other site about how the Palestinians should organize a massive non-violent civil disobedience campaign against Israel, which I think is the only way for them to get a state. The argument being that non-violent resistance forces Israel to either violently respond and lose face or give up some ground. Well, I’m not sure that this macabre flotilla episode was what I had in mind, but the post seems extra relevant now. It should be noted there are real questions about how “peaceful” the humanitarian ship was. That being said, I’m opposed to blockades against civilians and stopping ships trying to break through said blockades.
