As the war on Gaza intensified and the images of killed children made the rounds, people all over the world asked a simple question: What can be done to stop this carnage?
The answer is: make the occupation costly and strengthen the resilience of the Palestinians.
It is clear that the impunity Israel enjoys plays a large role in its continued occupation and belligerence. Making the Israelis pay a price for continuing to rule another people by force and the siege on Gaza would have a positive result.
Many worry that as individuals they are helpless, but that is not true. While Israel relies on support from international powers, mostly Western countries, there is much that can be made to influence political leaders to act differently when it comes to this unprecedented blind support for a country that kills babies at ease and yet continues to claim to be a democracy.
