Protesters gathered outside the German Representative Offices in Ramallah on Wednesday, following the decision of the German parliament to adopt a resolution declaring the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic.
Protesters holding signs and banners rallied outside the offices in Ramallah, while they chanted slogans against the German resolution.
“We have handed [in] a memorandum for the reconsideration of the resolution on BDS because it is a part of the Palestinian people’s struggle,” said a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation at the protest.
According to Omar Al-Bargooti, a member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, “this protest represents the first step in confronting the German resolution which is against our Arab nation and against the Palestinian cause.”
On Friday, the Bundestag adopted a resolution condemning as anti-Semitic the BDS movement, a group that fights for the liberation of the Palestinian people through a boycott of Israeli products.

Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-semitism and the Abuse of History
By Norman Finkelstein
In this long-awaited sequel to Norman Finkelstein’s bestselling “The Holocaust Industry” – Finkelstein lays into the human rights record of Israel and attacks Alan Dershowitz for poor scholarship. In “Beyond Chutzpah”, Norman Finkelstein moves from an iconoclastic interrogation of the new anti-Semitism to a meticulously researched expose of the corruption of scholarship on the Israel-Palestine conflict. Pointing to a consensus among historians and human rights organizations on the factual record, Finkelstein argues that so much controversy continues to swirl around the conflict because apologists for Israel contrive it. Examining the spread of distortions masquerading as history, Finkelstein scrutinizes the most recent addition to this genre, Alan Dershowitz’s “The Case for Israel” and, setting Dershowitz’s assertions on Israel’s human rights record against the findings of the mainstream human rights community, finds that Dershowitz has systematically misrepresented the facts. Thoroughly researched and tightly argued, “Beyond Chutzpah” lifts the veil of contrived controversy shrouding the Israel-Palestine conflict, enabling readers in search of a just and lasting peace to act on the basis of truth.
