Why the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions campaign may be the only way to help Gaza

While I've consistently opposed the "boycott Israel" strategy in the past, recent events in Gaza have now made it abundantly clear that the vast majority all Israelis, including those Israelis we had until recently believed to be desirous of a comprehensive peace accord with the Palestinians, need to be handed a "reality check" in the form of a total boycott until such time as they can prevail upon their Netanyahu government to rein in his coalition's disingenuous "smash Hamas" campaign, which has cost so many hundreds of innocent Palestinian lives. It is impossible not to be repelled by the sheer audacity of the Israeli assertion of a "self-defense" right, for clearly the .
world consensus view is that Israel has aggressively and illegally stolen, and indeed is now in the process of aggressively and illegally stealing, Palestinian lands, a crime today being supported under the guise of "self-defense" by the broad majority of Israelis, so the previous arguments against a "boycott Israel" approach -- that you'd only be doing collateral damage to sympathetic persons and their political parties within Israel -- is now revealed to have been a a misplaced concern, for no such enlightened Israeli constituency within their electorate appears to exist. It is most definitely the proper time to employ comprehensive economic sanctions against the outlaw state of Israel.
