When more or less democratic states, like the US, UK, Germany, and France, provide Israel with unconditional military funding or weaponry, or shield it from sanctions and accountability under international law, they are complicit in Israel’s crimes against Palestinians. When corporations profit from providing goods or services that enable Israel to maintain its regime of occupation and apartheid, they are complicit. When sovereign funds or church or university investment funds hold shares in such corporations, they are complicit. When artists, athletes or academics cross the Palestinian BDS picket line and participate in events in or sponsored by Israel, they are complicit. All this complicity generates an ethical responsibility for citizens to act, to prevent their tax money and those who speak in their name from being a partner in Israel’s relentless attempts to turn Gaza and other Palestinian ghettos into “zones of nonbeing,” as Frantz Fanon would call them.
