    Because Palestinians aren't allowed into Israel for a holiday. They aren't even allowed to use Tel Aviv airport. There is also a ban on Palestinians marrying Israelis afaik.

    Israel needs to learn a tough lesson to be honest, it's about time we stopped treating them with kid gloves.

    There are even settler-only roads that Palestinians aren't allowed to use.

    He did say it'd get blood boiling. (I haven't watched it yet, since I'm at work).

    I think you'll find I accompanied it with a sentence of explanation implying that it was the kind of video that angers people.

    Look, I know you've got a passion for ignoring the facts and imagining motives but the post is only one page back so you do yourself a real disservice by simply ignoring it and blundering on.

    Diamond you are posting Israeli propaganda. Fine if you want to do that but you should label it as such.

    I did.

    This is bloody stupid, I'm off.

    :D Dylans, you need to wind in on this one. He was quite clear. He said it was an insight into Israeli opinion, and that it was likely to raise ones blood pressure. I think that was clear enough, personally. I know I've posted things in those kind of circumstances.

    Propaganda . Hasbara produced and distributed by the Israeli Government.

    Now be clear. I have no problem with people posting Israeli government propaganda. It's interesting and gives an insight to the mindset of Israeli propaganda machine but to do so without clearly labelling it ISRAELI GOVERNMENT PRODUCED PROPAGANDA is dishonest. (and no merely saying it might raise blood pressure and it was an insight into Israeli public opinion did not make that clear at all) . In fact it gave the impression that it was produced and distributed by ordinary Israeli's not Israeli intelligence.

    Because Palestinians are not allowed into Israel and Palestinian spouses of Israelis are not allowed to live with them in Israel.

    It's called apartheid.

    Well, it didn't seem dishonest to me, dylans.

    We will have to agree to disagree. Either way there is no harm in pointing out that the link he posted was produced and distributed by Israeli intelligence. That's all.

    No harm in that at all, no.

    Profoundly daft. How on earth would they determine if a non-Israeli citizen had supported a boycott?

    They've passed the tipping point and lunged into the ravine, haven't they? It's Kafka-esque. :(

    I would quite happily write to them and tell them. In fact, I think that -- if this bill becomes law -- millions of people around the world should hand themselves in for this offence. Individually. In writing. At the same time.

    They'd call the police if the shopping trolley didn't have at least one settlement product in it.

    "Help! Police!"
    "What's wrong?"
    "This person hasn't brought any products from the west bank! We think he's participating in the boycott!"
    "OK, we'll be round right away!"

    It prevents people from promoting the boycott, and pre-deports anyone promoting it abroad.

    The US have had a law preventing companies from boycotting Israel for some time, IIRC.
