Israeli goods Boycott calls anti-Semetic

THE calls to boycott Israel and Israeli products are growing louder by the day. I find this boycott movement to be very hypocritical.

They claim they stand for justice and humanitarianism. But do they really? Many countries are guilty of violating human rights, yet where are the calls to boycott these countries?

The singling out and demonising of Israel goes above and beyond any normal call to action.

These are manifestations of a deeper hatred for the State of Israel as a whole, regardless of what conflict she is or is not fighting.
