“Why are we using the word Palestinian? There’s no such thing as a Palestinian person,” Brooke Goldstein declared to enthusiastic applause at a meeting of key Israel lobby operatives in New York in June. [A video of her statement can found on The Eletronic Intifada website.]
Goldstein is the director of the Lawfare Project, a legal group that aims, in her words, to “make the enemy pay”—that “enemy” being mainly comprised of Palestine solidarity activists and students. The Lawfare Project was founded with the support of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, an important forum for anti-Palestinian organizing in the US.
At the event, she and other Israel lobby leaders revealed their latest strategies to defeat the growing boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.
