Personally I;m not at the stage of boycotting Israel yet. However, I do boycott the settlers. I would not knowingly buy anything made in the settlements. The trouble now, is the Israel itself has a settler government, a bunch of extremists and oppotunists whose heart is with the settlers. And settlers increasingly fill the IDF. I do have a certain admiration for the way Israel proper has allwoed Arabs legal equality, but no admiration for the ghastly apartheid settler system it has erected in the West Bank. Oh and by the way, Bernard, if you take into account the West Bank mess, then Turkey and Lebanon and now Tunisia are societies at least as free as Israel. And I would tend to avoid buying products from North Korea and the north of Susan, if there were any to buy, As to China and Tibet, I leave that to our governments. China is so big in the world today, owning half of America by debt, for instance, that it's impossible to boycott.
