"boycotting the state in which you live is boycotting yourself" I am amazed that a person like yourself who lives in a democratic societry DOES NOT understand what freedom of choice means! As an American, I have the right to vote BUT no one can force me to vote!!! True democracies don't force people to line-up the streets everytime the president drove by. Dictatorships, like naazzi Germany, made people do just that! As a German (I assume) you probably would've expected those poor Jewish musicians to show more party spirit as they played their violens while fellow Jews were dumped into those mass graves! How can anyone expect a victim to WILLINGLY participate in the celebrations of his oppressor? Do you think these violinists had any choice but to play?
