dana's openong statement about the how this feeds the boycott fire should be a given. but the point she's making lies in the rest of her post; which is the complacency of most israelis to what goes on in the territories. you concede it and then brush it off with the standard finger pointing ploy. and you're right: the american public IS raising their voices towards the iraq war. but you're wrong about the affect. politicians are responding to the public outcry. it's just a matter of time. do you know this quote, tzfonit?: "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me." "they" DID come for him; hence these thoughts on the failure to denounce persecution and injustice towards anyone; whether it directly affects you or not.
