We know that you're against the occupation. That's good. Then why can't you see that boycotting Israel is the next logical step - that Israel needs strong pressure from outside to withdraw from the Territories and create a Palestinian state? Think of it: It's been 40 years now, and people like you have been talking on and on about "land for peace". The whole world wants two states to come about. "Peace processes". "Roadmaps". US presidents have appeared on the stage, one after the other, with bold proposals. But nothing has happened. Why? Well, it's because the Israeli ruling elites actually have invested a lot of prestige and interest in the Occupation, and therefore don't have any incitaments to end it. The only way to end it is to apply STRONG pressure from the outside. Not because we hate Israel or something (achi, ani beemet ohev et ha-aretz!). But because we really want this occupation to end, and because we believe a boycott is the only thing we haven't tried.
