It sounds like the whole trick of tying an apartheid regime to an entire religion and the past atrocities they’ve suffered, is working.Germany is run by people who actually remember what happened the last time they tried Jewish boycotts.
I really hate the actions of the right wing Israeli government, but I have never been comfortable with BDS as a form of protest. I grew up in a part of Sydney with a high Jewish population, and I don't think it's my business to ask them for their views on political Zionism before I purchase things from them.
The feelings of past wounds should not be a shield for future oppression and shouldn’t be manipulated to suppress resistance to war criminals.
The problem is that it works.
