UK journalists call for boycott of Israel

In another example of over the top out of whack critique of Israel, a group of UK journalists have called for a boycott of Israeli goods. While I do not usually blog on Middle East matters, this action is so over the top and out of whack that to me it smacks of a hatred of Israel that has at its core a latent -- or not so latent -- antisemitism.

For example it calls for end to Israeli slaughter of civilians in Gaza. Have they noticed that Israel withdrew from Gaza a while back and Palestinians have been lobbing missiles into Israel from Gaza?

This is, without doubt, a legacy in part of Jimmy Carter's novel. [With so many historical mistakes it cannot be considered anything but a novel.]
