    A boycott is a means of forcing someone to do what you want. It is financial blackmail. They can have a legitimate place but it is rare. Those using BDS on Israel don't want to apply it to other far worse cases & that is the problem. The BDS is a hypocrites weapon. Were the BDS's when the Egyptian Copts were attacked, the Turks in Cyprus, the Turks against the Kurds, the Iraqis killing the Christians, etc., etc. The BDS in this case is a weapon of war & a way to deligitamise Israel as such it can & should be countered..
