Those who favor boycotting Israel out of a sense of outraged humanity should, in the name of humanity, show equal outrage at all mistreatment of one people by another. Would you suggest that Kurds are any less deserving of a boycott of the Turks? Or of the entire Arab nation who looked on silently, if not approvingly, when Saddam ejected them from Kirkuk and brought in Arab settlers to take over their land? Are the Darfuris less deserving of a boycott of Sudan? Kashmiris less deserving of a boycott of India? Tamils less deserving of a boycott of Sri Lanka? Tibetians less deserving of a boycott of China? If you answer no to any of these questions, are you saying that these people are less human or less deserving than the Palestinians? It's an important question, because the countries on the boycott list encompass half or more of the population of the world. Or is there something especially enjoyable about putting Israel at the business end of your pointy little stick?
