Mr Loach is inconsistent. He says: "....We must also oppose the terrorist activities of the British and U.S. governments in pursuing their illegal wars and occupations". In which case he should boycott British and US institutions and festivals. But it is only Israel he chooses to boycott. This is typical of many on the European left and many in the Arab world: focus on the Zionist Satan you love to hate and disregard other places because it doesn't fit into their ideology (for instance who talks about the Congo and its millions of victims over the years?). "SELECTIVE INDIGNATION", once more.
