I see a discussion broke broke out yesterday in these here parts on the subject of boycotting Israel. I’m generally not in favour of these things. Voluntary trade is the height of civilised human behaviour, and harming individuals isn’t the same thing at all as campaigning against a state.
Nevertheless, Israel should welcome some boycotts
Last week the (British) National Union of Students, as puffed up on its own self importance as ever, voted to boycott Israel. Fine, it’s their grouping, they’re free to do that. This must put Israel in the same category as UKIP, which the NUS has also voted to oppose.
But ask them to deplore and condemn the headchopping lunatics of ISIS? Oh no, the NUS will not do that. It would be “islamophobic”, you see.
Netanyahu has criticised the NUS for the boycott decision. Goodness knows why. He should be proud to be hated by these student lunatics.
