Yes, before you boycott, think twice! This is one of the best video of explaning why human being should always support Israel and not boycott. Israelis makes our lives much easier, and healthier! Thank you very much for sharing this video.

Smart and to the pint
40% of Norwegians want to boycott israeli products after the navy raid on the pseudohumanitarian ship on its way to Gaza Strip.
When sb WANTS to boycott israeli products, they need to understand that they can't use almost anything, because everywhere there is some jew who designed/invented sth.
In this case for most of ppl jews=israel, because jews support israel.

Only an idiots
Only an idiot of dark sol. Can spend his time trying to organize such a boycott.
While you're locked on anti-Israel steadily. Turning back of your enlightenment
Any wrongs that makes the Arab world,
Hundreds of Muslims are slaughtered every day by Muslims
Others. Specify the hundreds of thousands of Christian Darfur. Where refugees in the Balkans if they returned
Their homes? Waipo all the hundreds of thousands of Czech Chechens who lost their lives and homes?
What do you boycott them. You nasty leftist hypocrite!!

Jews = Israel?
It's a big mistake to include all-things-Jewish in a fictitious Israel boycott. One of the things that aggravate the participants of real boycotts the most is the insistence to see their criticism of Israel as rejection of Jews or Judaism. I don't think they're right to boycott Israel of all things, and in the countries that they should be boycotting, there are ridiculously transparent mixtures of anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism and Israel bashing, but as thinkers of the democratic world, on this particular matter - they're right.
