... among them are also the Independent, the BBC and the London Review of Books that have singled Israel out for chriticism neither deserved nor in proportion to any other country on the clobe. One may argue about their motives for doing so, but there is no doubt that this anti-Israeli attitude, when expressed day in and day out by some of the most important media in Britain has an affect. What it has done is to develop an anti-Israeli and by extention, anti-Jewish (Isrel is the most important symbol of Jewish peoplehood of the 20th and 21st centruty!) among the general public in Britain and among its academics and journalists. This boycott is one of the results. For the editor of the Guardian to come out against this boycott is much, much less than an expression of intellectual honesty. What this man should do is demonstrate to the British and Israeli public, with his deeds, that he and his paper are not anti-Israeli, and by extention an anti-Jewish, but only by deeds!!!
