IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY June 14th 2017: “Every Kind of Boycott Of The Israeli Government Is Absolutely Understandable”

The occupation, of course, is catastrophic for Palestine — everybody knows that — but it is very negative for Israel too,” Mr Barenboim told reporters. “It has eroded all sense of decency and humanity and morality from people like me [Jews], who had been persecuted for over 20 centuries.”
.
…While he said he did not want to make an “equation” between the historic oppression of Jews and that faced by Palestinians under Israeli occupation, he added that it was “something along the same lines”….
.
Asked about the “normalisation” debate, Mr Barenboim expressed sympathy for Palestinians who were “forced to fight” Israeli policies that affected them.
.
“I think every kind of boycott of the Israeli government is absolutely understandable,” he said. “Anything that makes life easier for Israel is, at this moment, not on.”
