To Palestine Solidarity Campaign:
Your call to boycott Israeli supermarket products does not seem very well thought out. Not only will it not hurt the Israeli economy by any measurable degree, but it will also make Palestine Solidarity Campaign look extremely foolish. Does Palestine Solidarity Campaign really believe that the manufacturers of boxes of couscous hold any sway over the Israeli government or military? Will a small loss in profits in Israel’s feta cheese industry make life in the Palestinian territories more bearable? I think not. If you would like to show solidarity with the Palestinians, I would suggest thinking of ways of strengthening the Palestinian economy in measurable ways rather than diminishing the Israeli economy in unintelligible ways.
