Ultra-left (Jew hating) Israeli paper Haaretz now urges boycott, collective punishment of…ISRAELIS

Not satisfied with a boycott of Judea and Samaria, Ha’aretz op-ed writer Roy Isacowitz wants the world to boycott all of Israel.
Not satisfied with demanding that the world boycott goods from Judea and Samaria, Ha’aretz op-ed writer Roy Isacowitz is now asking the world to boycott Israeli goods – all of them – as well as companies that do business here.

In an op-ed piece titled “Target me with your boycott, please,” Isacowitz bemoans the fact that the “limited” boycott of goods for Judea and Samaria is not working. Instead, he writes, more aggressive action is needed – and that would include a boycott of all Israeli products.

Borrowing a simile from the world of billiards, Isacowitz posits that “it’s not always possible” to try and influence the government directly to change policy – in this case, to withdraw from Judea and Samaria and render hundreds of thousands of Jews homeless.

“When a grassroots boycott campaign has no direct influence over either the government or the public of the target country, it must motivate those who do have influence – such as corporations, academic, cultural and sports institutions and, of course, their own governments and their agencies – to implement their own boycott campaigns,” writes Isacowitz. Just like in South Africa in the 1990s, individuals boycotted IBM in order to force it to stop doing business there – a policy that eventually succeeded – so Israel needs to be boycotted, in order to economically hurt Israelis, and motivate them to pressure the government to withdraw from Judea and Samaria.

“After almost 50 years of Israeli defiance and evasion, there is little prospect of diplomatic change. The prime goal of the boycott against Israel, therefore, is to persuade the bulk of Israelis that the occupation is not in their interests,” writes Isacowitz. “And the way to do that is by focusing their attention sharply on what those interests are and how much they have to lose.
