Boycott: : to engage in a concerted refusal to have dealings with (as a person, store, or organization) usually to express disapproval or to force acceptance of certain conditions Blockade: the isolation by a warring nation of an enemy area (as a harbor) by troops or warships to prevent passage of persons or supplies; broadly : a restrictive measure designed to obstruct the commerce and communications of an unfriendly nation Mr. Levy doesn't seem to know the difference. What you have in Gaza is a blockade and not a boycott. Whether or not Levy wants to admit it there is a war going on and a blockade is a legitimate action during war. And where is there a boycott of the scale Mr. Levy claims is going on in the West Bank ? Military ? - if I remember correctly, the Israelis gave the Palestinian police weapons. Academic ? - wasn't it Bir Zeit University that refused to allow Ilan Pappe to speak because he was Israeli ? But then again Mr. Levy has never been known not to twist the English language to fit his own agenda.
