"Why are we using the word Palestinian? Theres no such thing as a Palestinian person," Brooke Goldstein declared to enthusiastic applause at a meeting of key Israel lobby operatives in New York earlier this month. 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.
