Mr Pat Geaney (Boycotting of Israeli goods penalised in UK — Irish Examiner March 25, 2016) would be well-advised to sit-up and take heed of the fact that we live in a sovereign state, separate from that overseen by the British government.
Furthermore, he should note that it is highly unlikely that God would be engaged in setting out the boundaries of countries but would rather be more concerned with the dehumanising processes being used in that regard: Ethnic cleansing; violence; and murder.
Such are the actions being employed by the Israeli state against Palestinians.
With that in mind, it seems clear that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is a just and ethical response to an unjust and unethical state.
