This chapter presents a conversation between Judith Butler and Udi Aloni about queerness, precariousness, binationalism, and the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Butler and Aloni first talk about the film Examined Life, the cast of which includes Butler, before turning to the issue of feminism by focusing on Butler's book Gender Trouble. They also discuss cultural boycott, the conflict between Israel and Palestine, the questions of Jewishness and Zionism, the relationship between Diaspora and emancipation, binationalism as a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and the relationship between the lesbian and gay community and the Muslim immigrants.

Keywords:   queerness, binationalism, Judith Butler, Udi Aloni, Israel, Examined Life, Gender Trouble, cultural boycott, Palestine, Israeli-Palestinian conflict
