    I am also against the cultural boycott, it is like the total punishment of people instead of state but we have a problem here. There was a long term apathy towards the atrocities, violations in this part of the middle-east. What did we get? Further violence! Israel lost its self judgement capacity to change its direction to prevent future mistakes. Turkel fiasco is a clear example. Finally, any philosopher even the greatest ones can not justify the total sanction on 1,5 million people in Gaza . Levy accuses Hamas for Israeli impositions on Gazans but he does not accuse Israeli government for worldwide boycott efforts against Israel. It seems a dichotomy. Even Beshir declared he will respect the will of the people for self determination in Sudan while Israel is trying to impose Lieberman's handmade drawings to others or evading the real agreements to move on remorseless status quo. Let's stand against Israel's delegitimization but not by sweeping its fatal mistakes under the rug. Manipulation is not a branch of Philosophy but Ethics is a major branch of it since Antique Greek.
