BDS Gets a Hearing on Chicago Public Radio

Check out this piece on Chicago Public Radio's "Worldview" program, featuring US Campaign National Conference speaker Omar Barghouti and Naomi Klein, both of whom present eloquent defenses of the movement for boycott, divestment, and sanctions to put pressure on Israel to comply with universal standards of international law and human rights. Alon Pinkas, Ambassador-at-Large for the State of Israel, is also featured on the program. It's interesting to note how few of the central points of either Barghouti or Klein's arguments that Pinkas responds to. Listen to the program by clicking here.
