9 40 BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, SANCTIONS In a report tellingly titled Rain of Fire: Israel’s Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza, Human Rights Watch confirms Israel’s deliberate targeting of civilians with devastating results. ”10 Corroborating such findings by international human rights organizations and UN agencies on the impact of Israel’s attacks on Gaza, on December 20, 2009, Al Dameer Association for Human Rights in Gaza published a position paper on the health and environmental problems caused by Israel’s extensive use of proscribed radioactive and toxic materials throughout its assault on Gaza.

All such explanations have one thing in common: they betray the same symptoms of selective amnesia displayed by those on the right. They ignore the fact that Israel’s very establishment was a result of massive ethnic cleansing, massacres, rape, wanton destruction of hundreds of villages, and total denial of the most basic rights to the indigenous Palestinians who were dispossessed and exiled and those who remained despite all the attempts to annihilate their existence as a people with a distinct identity.

You do not want to appear too political; you are afraid of seeming controversial; you need the approval of a boss or an authority figure; you want to keep a reputation for being balanced, objective, moderate; your hope is to be asked back, to consult, to be on a board or prestigious committee, and so to remain within the responsible mainstream; someday you hope to get an honorary degree, a big prize, perhaps even an ambassadorship. For an intellectual these habits of mind are corrupting par excellence.
