    I expect China has a worse human rights record than Israel.

    And how is that relevant to whether items are made in Israel or not?

    there are two main alternative reasons why the OP wish to boycott products from Israel

    1. He is anti Jew
    2. He does not want Israel to bomb the Palestinians.

    We shouldn't boycott Israel. We should acknowledge their right to defend themselves. Hamas are a terrorist organisation and thus should be boycotted.

    Considering 99.99% of the United Kingdom's products don't come from the Israel, it's more probable the OP is trying to let his realpolitik emotions out.

    I mean most young people and students will back Palestine. But for me I've always supported Israel. I blame Hamas/people in the Gaza Strip for 90% of the problems. But I acknowledge your views.

    Why do Hamas get the label 'terrorists'? When they are also defending their themselves?

    But the Hamas charter calls for the destruction of the state of Israel?

    I'm sure the 0.0000000000000001% hit they'll take from OP boycotting them will be the ultimate push that really ends Israel :rolleyes:
