    The more Israel cajoles the US to get the rest of us to boycott Hamas and the PA, the more Israel plays right into the extremists' hands by doing so. As this article sensibly points out, the harder you get 'Israel's friends' to come down on the elected Government of Fateh/Hamas, the more reason you give to young teenagers to join the ranks of the terrorists rather than the ranks of dialogue. Or does Yesha/Zionism actively want to ramp up terrorist attacks on Israel by deliberately being hard on Hamas/Fateh to provoke more terrorist attacks so the IDF can come down harder on the Pals to stop terrorism, who react with more terror? If Israel is really interested in peace then let it show it. Badgering the rest of the world to keep funds from the PA and to maintain a militarily oppressive line on 'the terrorists' will breed more terrorists, not weaken or crush them. What kind of land does Israel really want for its children and their children?
