As I walked through Edinburgh during the festival, I came across a group of uneducated morons exposing these signs. I had to stop and confront. In order to “free Palestine” one must boycott Israel. Quite ridiculous. How do you have apartheid against enemies, I asked. No reply; just a puzzled expression, and the typical “ignore and walk away from the mean Zionist.” The good news is that very few people were showing any interest or stopping to inquire.
I’m terribly sorry that I did not have time to interview and to ask more questions that would leave them stripped of any rational replies, but unfortunately I was pressed for time. Perhaps I’ll see them again and do a proper interview.
