One could also call it the "Shimon Peres disease": Always prepared to say all the right ("nice") words, as long as it doesn't cost anything. But as soon as things are getting a bit tough, they will rather stick with the right wingers in Israel than with human rights organisations from all over the world. Is it fair to guess that Bradley Burston doesn't only have a problem with the "Toronto boycott" against Tel Aviv (which can indeed be open for discussion), but against any kind of sanctions against the state of Israel, even specific ones against the West Bank settlers..?? I'm afraid that is exactly what differentiates a truly moderate Israeli/Diaspora from a "pseudo-moderate one".....
