    About Peter Beinart article in the NY Times, I doubt Beinart would have posted Amb. Oren's article on Beinart's blog ZionSquare. I too used to believe he would not want to intentionally put Israel in harm's way, yet he seems evermore frustrated that no one in Israel listens to him and takes him anymore seriously than Israeli's (even in her own party) take Tzipi Livini, his heroine. Peter has crossed the line however calling for a boycott of anything produced by or entertains over the green line. Peter is adding legitimacy to those who would harm Israel, and will use his name as another protagonist in the fight against her existence; they make no fine distinctions where products are produced. His is now guilt not by association but by collaboration, and Beinart MUST retract his statement immediately or be put in "charem" for wanting to harm Jews. His is not fatherly advice, but abuse. Dr. Goldmeier is a consultant on business and economic development, and writes on public and social policy matters.
