(1) The partitioning of Mandate Palestine into "a Jewish state" and "an Arab state" was perfectly legal, even if I consider it monumentally unwise: therefore I can not - and do not - dispute Israel's legitimacy. (2) I accept that the Israelis can define their state in any way that they wish, including "the state for the Jewish people". It is one of the perks of sovereignty. (3) I object to the PLO being compelled to recognize Israel as "the state for the Jewish people" i.e. the PLO need only recognize Israel's sovereign right to define itself in any way that it wants. (4) Boycott Israeli goods? Hell, yeah. It certainly beats SHOOTING at each other, and if Israel has the better narrative then the campaign will fail. So go ahead... after all, what's so scary about fighting it out in the arena of public opinion, rather than on the battlefield?
