bobad, nice quote. Brilliant attempt to brush away the facts on the ground with empty, loaded words.
these are the worries of Israeli business.
"Mr Lapid, who favours a two-state solution, reels out figures to show how sanctions could hit every Israeli pocket. "If negotiations with the Palestinians stall or blow up and we enter the reality of a European boycott, even a very partial one," he warned, 10,000 Israelis would "immediately" lose their jobs. Trade with the European Union, a third of Israel's total, would slump—he calculates—by $5.7 billion."
