    Arthur. You obviously haven't visited the number of Arab countries I've been to. There are McDonalds, Starbucks, Timberland, etc. (the list is endless) products everywhere. These companies are owned or managed by ardent Zionists who donate millions of dollars to Israel every year. If the Arab and Muslim nations wanted to cut off te flow of money going to Israel, they'd stop such companies trading in their countries, but they don't. The Gazans didn't vote for war. Netanyahu and the US didn't want to deal with Arafat so they insisted the PLO held elections to create a Palestinian Authority. In 2003, Hamas was democratically elected but you and the US chose not to accept the result. If you want to talk about terror organisations, then please enlighten me about the Irgun and Stern Gang, the leaders (Menachim Begin and Yitzak Shamir) of which went on to become Prime Ministers of Israel. I agree with you about one thing though. The Egyptian government are nothing but a bunch of Israeli prostitutes but they have their own concerns. Their President is a despot who doesn't want to see Hamas in power because of this organisation's close relationship with the banned Muslim Brotherhood. Oh, and while we're talking about boycotts and terrorists. Have you ever heard of South Africa and Nelson Mandela. Boycotts worked very well for the former and the latter was referred to as a terrorist. He too became President. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. I can't say that for the Irgun or Stern Gang since they weren't fighting for freedom. They were fighting to steal.
