Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 4 comments
ML: "and only while the state of war still is in place with the Palestinians," Since 1945 the concept of "a state of war" has been as much a dead-letter as is "a declaration of war" i.e. all that matters is wether or not there is an "armed conflict" going on, and there simply isn't an armed conflict going on here. ML: "the one that started in 1967." Wrong times two i.e. even if I accept that there is an ongoing "state of war" (which I do not) then that statement of yours is nonsensical, since the 1967 war was between Israel and Egypt/Jordan, and not between Israel/Palestine.
