    Excellent move that's well in line with the EU policy of maintaining the world court's view of the illegality of all settlements. It's nice that Ariel allows in some arab israelis (how many? 5%). Do they allow any palestinians from the west bank? if not, then it is a settlement built on land conquered by force, and is therefore viewed as illegitimate. Israel is, of course, welcome to boycott Spain. But here is one difference between the basque situation and the palestinian one. Spain only wants the basques to be full citizens of spain. They never asked to expel them or kick them to france. Israel, OTOH, has no interest in making the palestinians full israeli citizens. In fact, that's the last thing they want. So one is a secession movement. The other will some day become an ascention, since palestinians will ask for full rights as full fledged israeli citizens, one day, not too long from now (even the PA is making noises in that direction). And then what?
