    Peter...I think its your own bigotry you are referring to there; given the manner in which you have so casually disparaged your colleagues, making crass, unfounded generalisiations. It amazes me that somebody with resposnibility for opening minds can be so utterly narrow minded. There are many people in Ireland who have difficulty with the actions of the Israeli state - and indeed throughout the world, are you so blind as to not understand why this is so? I salute those Israeli's and other observors of whatever creed who have the intelligence and humanity to see these types of decisions in a rational light. Ultimately, the world wants Israel to listen to it and moderate its behaviour, which runs counter to accepted international norms on many levels ands clearly prolongs the conflict. Something which endangers us all directly or indirectly. If Israel thumbs its nose continously at the world then more and more boycotts like this are going to happen. Its a shame but its not about hate, its actually about being cruel to be kind.
