Israel's occupation is justified. In its origin it was as a defensive occupation of a violent and implaccable enemy who sought to destroy Isreal. Its prolongation is a product of a refusal to come to a reasonable accomodation. For 30 years or so there was a complete refusal to deal with Israel, let alone renounce violence or even the goal of destroying Israel. Israel is "occupying" lands that were historically Jewish. Pals never had a national government and are comprised of Arab peoples from neighbouring Arab states, one of which has a strong majority of Palestinians. The Pals have engaged in terror activities and engaged in this conduct well before the occupation. Pals deserve to have their political aspirations to be compromised for bad, atrocious, inhumane behaviour. Who should be boycotted are the Pals, who have made it clear that any state they will have will be Judenrein! Boycotting those that behave and think like Hitler, that began a fight that have made their children and Israeli children miserable, should be a completely uncontroversial matter.
