I think that those who feed from the government trough shouldn't bite the hand that feeds them. Do Ahmad Tibi, Haneen Zoabi, State-sponsored university professors or NGOs have the right to call for a boycott while they're on the clock? I believe such behavior lowers their credibility. If they want to make such statements, they should make it clear that they are making the statements as private individuals, not from their position as government officials or employees. I have no great love for the settlements myself (other than Gush Etzion, which is a separate case), but anyone who believes that "the settlements" are the main obstacle to peace is living in a dreamworld. The main obstacle to peace is the fact that the Arabs don't want anyone other than Muslims controlling land they deem to be "theirs". The entire "Palestinian-Israeli conflict" is a manufactured publicity gambit to divert attention away from the Arab-Israeli conflict and make Israel seem like the big, bad Goliath oppressing the poor, downtrodden "Palestinians", instead of the truth. Go ahead and censor this, Ha'Aretz. I know it doesn't fit in with your views... your talkback sections have become worse than this law ever can be.
