Omar Barghouti on the BDS movement and Israeli apartheid

Omar Barghouti, the co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment Sanctions movement for Palestinian rights, discusses the aims of the BDS movement, U.S. support for Israeli apartheid and the double standard evident in the West’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Israel’s violations of international law.  While Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine merits boycotts, divestment and sanctions just as Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land does, Barghouti says the provocative actions taken by the West before the Russian invasion and the indiscriminate sanctions that have been put in place following it highlight Western hypocrisy, racism and cruelty. This program is a repeat of the program aired April 1, 2022.
