    The latest draft law for Israeli citizens who want peace more than land makes promoting the boycott of firms based in the occupied West Bank punishable. Boycott used to be thought of as a non-violent way of protesting injustice - it is still considered thus in democratic countries. Basically it's left to each individual to decide whether he or she wants to boycott something. But you're not going to be allowed to admit it or encourage it and your fine money, 30,000 shekels if I understood correctly, will go to the firms you are boycotting (well.... no doubt only part of it, but who's worried about where the rest will go?). In other words, the excuse during the violence was Palestinian violence, to which our violence was said to be merely self-defence. Now that peaceful resistance is the weapon, and now that Palestinians and Israelis who prefer peaceful coexistence to perpetual strife are working and protesting together non-violently, non-violent protest will be punishable. Reminds you of that Pastor Niemoeller poem? Not a very original thought these days; it seems to remind everyone of it.
