|A Black Day for the American Green Party: Why BDS is a Bad Move|
By Dr. Daniel Orenstein
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Dec. 4, 2005) — For most of my professional career, I have researched environmental issues in Israel. While issues of water scarcity and loss of open spaces loom large among the country’s problems, the more I study the more I’ve become convinced that many of its environmental problems are rooted in underlying socio-political problems. This could be direct — as when the inequitable distribution of land resources favoring Jews over Arabs leads to wasteful use of land resources — or this could be indirect, as when the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, and between Israel and Arab states deflects resources away from pressing social needs like the environment and education, in favor of military expenditures.
Dr. Daniel Orenstein is an advisory-board member of the Green Zionist Alliance.

"We wish to give the Jews a homeland - not by dragging them ruthlessly out of their sustaining soil, but rather by removing them carefully, roots and all, to better terrain."
