I refuse to use my money to knowingly support the exploitation, colonization and oppression of any fellow human being. My sense of morality instilled by my faith leads me to feel that to inflict suffering, injustice and dehumanization on another person is wrong. To partake in the spoils of that injustice makes me complicit. To stay silent makes me complicit. I can’t stay quiet, nor can I sit back in complicity.
There was a time when those were ideals that were hallowed and meritorious.
As of last night, those ideals make me a criminal in the eyes of the State of Israel.
Why? Because I support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.
