Morally Consistent

Omar Barghouti could not travel.  His life has been threatened.  But he spoke to us nonetheless.  His appearance, by video link, was a highlight of last weekend's "Justice for Palestine" conference.  Again and again, he returns to international law.  Again and again, he returns to human rights.  "BDS is not just a morally consistent volunteer-based movement that is anchored in international law, it is seriously effective."  One can respond to Omar's passion, to his argument, in a number of ways; but this seems clear.  He is morally consistent.
