    Meanwhile in the US, repression of pro-Palestinian activists like Students for Justice in Palestine continues, including condemnations from the University of California, police-intimidation and prosecutions for interrupting Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech there. It has to be asked: who is pulling the strings behind the scenes to create this repression.

    They shouldn't have interfered in his speech. They have many ways to protest. They don't have to interrupt speeches.

    You might want to turn off your computer and stop posting rubbish on the internet as it more than likely contains chips made in Israel.

    What is it with the Zionist control-freaks. It is their country so Israel should mind its own business. Anyway they have something unimaginable in the US - the Fifth Amendment. The right to freedom of speech.

    Which is why I said "as far as practicable". I think this is an argument for greater investment by the EU in nano-technology in order to fight US/Israeli domination of the trade.

    Protest is itself as form of free speech. What do you want yanshuf? To take over the world or something?

Anyway, the Ebay entry stated "California, USA." "Grand", says I, and made payment, except when the goods arrived they were marked "Product of Israel." Now, I was rightly cheesed off with this deception, but seeing as how I had now broken my taboo, it got me thinking in a way I hadn't before.

    By boycotting Israeli goods, was I simply punishing ordinary people who, like myself, are just trying to turn a few honest bob? Isn't boycotting Israeli goods really pointless unless it goes hand-in-hand with a similar boycott of USA goods, seeing as they underpin the regime? As an Irish Republican, should I also not be boycotting British goods because of their human rights abuses here and elsewhere? I mean, why just Israel?

    All in all, is boycotting Israeli goods just a pointless, feel-good, "right-on", Ranelagh coffee morning-type activity for Westerners who just want to feel better about themselves?
    Yes, it's just a feel-good thing. Do you think what's been happening in Tibet or Chechnya is equally bad? If so, do you also boycott Chinese or Russian goods? You're clearly not boycotting American goods while they occupy Afghanistan!

    Afghanistan was self-defence becaus of 911. It's not comparable to 3 Israelis being killed over Gaza. Also unlike China, America has leverage over Israel (China is America's largest creditor nation). And unlike Russia, Israel is not a large oil-producer. So the West has more potential leverage over Israel, and hence why the case for using it is greater/ Having said that I would like more pressure on those other regimes too. It's less likely to be effective than pressure on Israel though. Also the fact that within 1967 borders, there is still some democracy in Israel - unlike Russia or China - makes the possibility of peaceful regime change there greater, in terms of a more dovish govt being elected because of pressure on Israel. After all pressure on SA ended Apartheid. So maybe it can also end Israeli Apartheid.

    Intel have a big factory in Israel, another in Ireland, another in China, and I assume they have plants in the US too.
    I make sure that my computers don't have an Intel chip specifically because of their support for Israel, i.e. their plant in Israel.

    I know that their main competitor, AMD, also has some sort of a facility in Israel, but at the moment it's the better bet of the two, as it is not in such a huge symbiosis with Israel. So forthe moment, I buy computers with an AMD chip.
