I find a few things bizarre. Firstly, the article said that there are only 40,000 members yet the vote was 66 to 54. Where are the other people? This is hardly representative. Secondly, i do find it odd that we are currently going through a process of engaging with Arab neighbours who we would never have considered talking to in the past, and there is potentially great hope across our region. Why impose a boycott now? Thirdly, and I know this argument is often used, but is it just Israel who is being boycotted or have they boycotted other nations too? There's a thought for you all. And finally, whilst the world and Israel ponders over the Israel - Lebanon conflict, all political analysts everywhere around the world, including Nasrallah himself, acknowledge the fact that Hizbullah started that situation. Yes, we can all question Israel's response, but let's not forget our historical perspectives.
