As I have long believed and advocated, the Palestinians would be much more effective against the Israeli injustice of occupation if they engaged in a relentless mass movement of nonviolent civil disobedience (including marching into and around Jerusalem/al-Quds in the hundreds of thousands, among other powerful nonviolent activities) — with or without mirrors. The entire might of the Israeli military, with all its massive U.S. funding and high-tech weaponry, would eventually be virtually powerless against this most potent, peaceful weapon. U.S. and world public opinion, the “second superpower” according to the , would be more firmly in the Palestinian camp, as would many more Israelis and Diaspora Jews. Furthermore, this would help build Palestinian civil society alongside the fight for a Palestinian state, instead of damaging the successful prospects for both.
