    the stance takened by the actors is natural consquence of their world view. morality (as analyzed by prof johnathan haidt) consists of 5 principles: harm/care,mutual responsibility,family loyalty,respect for authority,sanctity/purity. the right and left only share belief in the first two. the latter three are only endorsed by the right and rejected by the left. this is the heart of the issue. the right sees morality as demanding loyal to the family including the greater family -one's nation. the left rejects this principle. when fellow jews boycott another,it hurts. its a violation of family loyalty. worst,it seems an act of support for the enemy and its all done in the name of morality. to paraphrase fdr: we have nothing to fear but 'in fighting' of jews. we would do well to reconcile our differences and show love for one another.when we stand shoulder to shoulder then nothing can get in between us. disunity makes us vunerable.
