Abstract or Description

I can see how it is tempting for an Israeli opponent of the occupation, who spends his life fighting the exclusive nationalism of Israeli governments, to seize a rhetorical opportunity to score some hits against an Israeli government. But Uri Ram should widen his horizons and should understand that the boycott campaign threatened British Jews – students, activists, lecturers – and it threatened leftist and liberal political culture in Britain - before it came anywhere near to hurting Israelis.
