I like a lot of the sentiment in this article, but I guess I don't really understand the end of it. Why thank these boycotters when they are doing exactly what you don't like? Namely, singling out Israel for a boycott (even if it is in a more sensitive way). There are plenty of other countries who are equally "deserving" of a boycott, including the US (how many civilians died in Iraq?). So, why single out Israel and why are we thanking them?
