1. It takes two to dance!!!!!
Robert ,   Farmingon,wv   (01.20.14)
It takes two , Even if Israel would to agree to a Peace deal , its only a matter of tie before the rockets starts to fly again. a boycott would be bad for the economy but would save many Israeli lives in the future. either way the Jews get the shaft on this deal , and like the deals in the past. the Arabs have to show they want peace to , which they have not shown yet , and a 100% chance never will. heck the most easy thing for them to do is to recognize a Jewish state and they can't do that. May God forever bless the State of Israel and her Children.
2. capitalists without honor fear just about their money !
Frederic   (01.20.14)
3. They are not a bunch of idiots!
I can't believe it ,   What mentality ?   (01.20.14)
They are simply S-T-U-P-I-D ! If not, how do you understand such a mentality? Someone is trying to bully into self-destruction and your reaction is to give in? And these are the so called Israel's captains of industry? May the Lord have mercy on us.
4. the problem is NOT Israel, the problem is the Anti-semitism
5. Shame!!!
Abraham Nachmias ,   Petach Tikva IL   (01.20.14)
Greedy people in love with money!
6. childish!
Charles   (01.20.14)
as if they are the only ones who want peace. give me a break.
7. Foolish cowardly words
Jay Abouaf ,   Jaffa Israel   (01.20.14)
8. Fear based decisions are ALWAYS wrong.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.20.14)
Those pathetic creatures who want Israel to surrender to our mortal "Palestinian" foes have only one message. Low down contemptible cowardly fear mongering. Their despicable tactics are those of extortionists and other criminals. There is NO sane case for Israeli retreat. Let the vast sane majority demand Israel act with courage. No more Oslos. No more Disengagements. No more infallibly wrong leftist lunacy.
9. The EU has never threatened to boycott Israel
Scott ,   Ramat Gan   (01.20.14)
only companies operating in the territories - which the left should be happy about since they want to kick Jews out of there anyway.
10. Just like German industry magnats,Jewish inclusive,wanted a
ab   (01.20.14)
"strong man,AH" If they really,really "wanted to warn" they could have done it at home.As it is they are just angling for brownies ,"It's not us,have mercy on me,I want the same as you!" from the hateful pals&Co
11. stupid guys , fight againt boycott , not submit
dmostrel001@cegetel. ,   paris france   (01.20.14)
just a minority active on BDS , most people don't follow these actions , so just fight everytime againt BDS , in most countries it is illegal , be proud no submit
12. economy
Yerucham T. ,   Yerucham Israel   (01.20.14)
Europe is dead and the US is dying. China is the future for Israel. They are building an industriasl park in Nanxun just for Israeli -Chinese cooperation. A block-buster deal was just concluded and they are lining up to follow. The Israeli monopolies are choking on their own selfishness. Hashem is fighting for us. Just like at krias yam suf, he said, "besheket, just watch me and rejoice. Yidden, zein freilach, befreiheit. Today is MLK day: "Free at last, free at last, we ARE free at last."
13. boycott & other risks
SK ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (01.20.14)
While not to downplay the damage that a boycott could do, I don't see how rockets falling on Ben Gurion airport are good for business. 40km south of the Tel Aviv bubble the kids are home from school today. Is this what you want for your kids?
14. Close the doors of the worn out West
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (01.20.14)
countries . Open new doors to the dynamic East countries Israelis have the potential to conquer the world,should exploit that and stick out their tongue to the boycotters [being endangered of extinction]. It is well known that who curse the Jews will be cursed, who bless the Jews will be blessed. South Korea is a good example
15. Ofra Strauss and tony blair
JoeMiller ,   London,UK   (01.20.14)
Ofra Strauss the mistress of tony blair
16. Israeli blood securing the current
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (01.20.14)
defendable borders must not have been spilt in vain. If we give in to this coercion we may continue to get "rich"..but at what price? Terror and rockets into our midst? This will send us into the abyss no less than the runaway capitalism now destroying our earth. Think melting ice caps, decimated jungles, 40% less phytoplankton in the oceans since 1970.Time to go Hamish, if it's not to late Feel with your guts and act accordingly. Do you really trust our 'peace partners"? Wallah, I don't
17. 100 Chicken Littles
Yishai Kohen ,   YeShA, Israel   (01.20.14)
The sooner we liberate the country from the leftist fear-mongers, the better.
18. Jewish History filled with elite sellouts
ShameOnThem ,   Jerusalem Israel   (01.20.14)
Throughout the long history of the Jewish people we can see the elite assimilationist Jews too often sell out the nation for personal material gain the Hellenists are back again as they were in Greek and Roman days
19. Israel's economy fastest growing in OECD
what boycott?   (01.20.14)
Israel's economy was the fastest growing economy in the OECD in 2013. New trade deals are signed with Canada (this week), India (next month), and Latin America countries (later this year). Israel's dominance in the global High Tech industry is steady.
20. The palastinians aren't even talking to each other….
Brett L ,   JHB RSA   (01.20.14)
How does the world expect a final settlement to be made given this!! The boycotts are a way of hiding the true reason, hate for the JEWS!! Simple as that!!
21. The real resin for the boycott is the hate for the Jews!!
Brett L ,   JHB RSA   (01.20.14)
22. Peace requires a win-win for Arabs, Jews, to profit, grow
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.20.14)
23. #4
Harold ,   USA   (01.20.14)
Explain why Anti-semitism has spread all over the world. If you know the cause FIX IT...........
24. #12
Harold ,   USA   (01.20.14)
Your words are exactly the same as what Ariel Sharon said during the Reagan Administration "IF YOU DON'T GIVE US THE PLANES ODERED WE WILL GO TO THE SOVIET UNION".
25. See Today's Artical on Norway
Ron ,   oc us   (01.20.14)
A strong Israel will be more effective than a week one. Any, boycott will have its basis on price and delivery not politics. Norway is changing course because Norway changed, not Israel. I also feel that they have had enough of Arab immigration and the misplaced sympathy for the general cause of the Arabs and or Iran.
26. Israel don't sell high tech gadgets
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (01.20.14)
to them ,nor none of your great inventions.
27. #23 the reason is jealousy
to fix it you need to stop hating and start doing something useful.. at least for yourself
28. Who is behind the boycott?
Alexander Scheiner ,   Israel   (01.20.14)
Primarily its Omar Barghouti, a scholar at the TAU. He developed the BDS-Movement with the support of Israeli and Jewish NGOs. These NGOs are: Btselem, NIF, Jews for Peace, Rabies for human rights and the mother of all antiisraeli jewish NGOs, the swiss JVJP.CH! rememberamalek
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (01.21.14)
Arabs don't buy from traders that deal with Israel.
30. Israel leads global photo apps market
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (01.21.14)
They don't seem to suffer from the boycott.
