My friend still wants to go back to Jaffa!
author: Blimey


I already knew that the UK and US are implicated in nasty behaviour. I will be involved in protests against DSEi, the largest Arms fair in Europe, as I was 2 years ago.

And if countries decide that they want to boycott the UK and US, I understand why.

I'm not sure that I can see why you think it is Okay to boycott Israeli goods yourself, but that it is not okay for me to support an economic and cultural boycott.

Either your line is, "we are all doing bad things, so it is irrelevant to single anyone out", or it is not.

My feeling is that there is a danger that people end up doing nothing.

The Occupation is no longer sustainable and now is the time for its critics to unite and push it over the edge.

I intend to be part of that push.

As one part of my struggle against the unjust, incompromising injustices committed under capitalism.

I hope you can learn to live with that.
