    Because people see the BDS campaign for what it is namely a nasty anti-Semitic campaign pretending to be interested in the human rights of Palestinians. If you really care about the Palestinians then protest against Hamas and their corrupt rulers who are driving them into the ground. Instead they blame Israel. The attempted boycott of Soda stream is a case in point of their warped thinking. Remind me again about Barghouti and where he got his education?

    The purpose of BDS is to force Israel to the negotiating table and to end the Occupation and settlements. When these demands have been met, BDS will cease.

    Meanwhile Israel has cut approvals for Gazans to travel abroad for cancer to 42%, down from 78% in 2009. There are persistant reports Israel has used depleted uranium in Gaza.

    Bargouti is only one leader of the movement. There are many others all around the world and most aim at the aims I mentioned earlier.

    Israel withdrew from Gaza and forcibly removed the settlers, and what did hamas do? Build schools, hospitals and houses, no they built rocket launchers, so why should Israel withdraw from the west bank?

    The casualties caused by Hamas are negligible and have been since the Iron Dome was introduced. Even when Hamas was actually killing people the death toll was far lower than killed in NI by the IRA, yet the UK did not resort (post-partition) to settlements, flattening towns or air strikes (despite shootings like Bloody Sunday). Again Israel needs to learn the lessons of the NI Peace Process.

    Maybe hamas need to stop firing rockets at Israel , Perhaps that's the lesson that needs to be learned

    A lot of us would fire rockets if a foreign army was demolishing our homes.

    But Israel left, and hamas could have tried to improve the lot of the inhabitants of Gaza, but that's kind of hard , much easier to blame Israel and fire rockets at them.

    But Israel then ramped up house demolitions in the West Bank and continues to do so.
