Iain Banks on Boycotting Israel.

The original Guardian article almost speaks for itself.  His premise is Apartheid in South Africa fell, partly, because because of sports boycotts.  The Afrikaners according to Banks, were very sports oriented and sportsmen resented not being able to participate in International events.

Banks says Israelis are not heavily into sports, but culture of all types so boycott the culture.  OK, that is their right in Democratic societies.  Is there a danger of substituting Israeli for Jew?  Just asking.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
