I am going to boycott Israeli products and companies supporting the zionist entity. Will you join me?

Quote:
Below are products and brands of corporations and businesses that are helping Ariel Sharon and Zionist Israel to continue their racist apartheid policies and illegal occupation of Palestinian lands. We are asking you to boycott these products. The products and brands have been well researched. Each of the companies have ties to Israel and support their policies against the Palestinian people. As an example, Estée Lauder's chairman, Ronald Lauder, served as the Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and is the current President of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) - a quasi-governmental agency whose main function is to legitimize Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. Ronald Lauder is a hardcore Zionist and his views are often more extreme then those of the Israeli government.

No, I won't boycott Israel, not blankly anyway. I don't think it will change anything there because you're only going to force all Israelis to stick together, and the problem is the settlers - those are the people you should be against, and the settlers are holding their entire country hostage by making it seem that if you're against them, then you're against all Jews. The settlers are as bad as the Hamas, but the rest of Israel has earned its right to be there. We should be trying to focus on helping peace-minded people on both sides of the conflict. Anything produced on occupied territory for example, I'd happily boycott that. But it's really important that Israelis see we're not against their country itself. The same goes for Palestinians.

My two cents.

No thanks. If anything, I'd boycott the Arabs but too bad we need their oil.

Cool, I'm with you, but don't just boycott products, boycott ideas that led to what Israel is today.
Statism. Power centralization. Religion.

We really need a Manhattan Project for new energy sources. Hydrogen looks promising, and solar will be a lot more viable soon given the current pace of advance, but no matter what we do we'll need some massive infrastructure investments to get ourselves off of foreign oil.

Hydrogen is not an energy source, it is merely a method of energy transfer.

Technically true, but the same is true of fossil fuels. The energy source is the sun for essentially everything on Earth.

Unless you fusion it 8)

Except fission, fusion and geothermal energy.

Thus I said "essentially everything." Geothermal is an energy source for some archaea in remote areas. Nothing that we've observed on Earth uses fusion, and fission is still not used very broadly, and is only used by humans.

Unless you extract hydrogen with less energy than it yields it is not an energy source. Natural gas is the closest possibility at the moment. Fusion is still in such an experimental state it will be several decades at best before the problems are solved and nobody envisions running a car directly on fusion power unless it is electricity derived from a fusion reactor.
