Subject: RE: BS: BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'

"FYI, about the mandate and UN declarations etc. I don't recognize the power of Britain or the UN to give away land that doesn't belong to them or indeed to meddle in the affairs of other states through the use of "declarations." History for the past 65 years, shows that Israelis do not put much store in UN declarations as well."

Once the ARABS refused to acknowledge the UN declaration of the state of Israel, AND THE UN STOOD BY WHEN THE ARAB LEAGUE ATTACKED, Israel had no reason to recognize later UN resolutions

"I do recognize the right and the power of people and countries to buy goods and services from whoever they please. Our carbonator is Primo, not soda stream."

I agree- but the selection to boycott ONLY the "Jewish" state, when other nations have done as bad or worse appears to reasonable people to be… anti-Jewish.

"I will never again rent a movie because Scarlett Johanson is the star as long as she supports the Palestinian aparthied. Small things I know, but more effective than mere talk."

Your choice.

"I also recognize that Zionists, Christian or otherwise also have a right to vote wither their own pocketbooks."


But to be consistent, BDS needs to be willing to boycott nations persecuting Jews, Christians, and Ba'hais. So far I have seen no indication of any targets other than Jews.
