You said: "If Israel shows that it is truly an independent state, then others will realize that it`s futile to try to "pressure" Israel." Mow change "Israel" to "Iran" and say that to all your friends. "If Iran shows that it is truly an independent state, then others will realize that it`s futile to try to "pressure" Iran." Go on. Fairs fair. Unless you are a hypocrite that is. See how silly it sounds. All countries have to live with international neighbors friends and foes. If we disagree with what a country does, then we can say so. Would you have said that it is alright for the Rewanda genocide to proceed as we shouldn't be pressuring them? We disagree with your treatment of Palestinians and the indescriminate killing undertaken by the IDF of Palestinian women and children. We will work to try to convince you to change your ways. And if that includes boycotts, then so be it.
