More on the UCC boycott

Haskell Nussbaum writes about the failed UCC boycott of Israel in the Jerusalem Post, concluding:

Ultimately, it is a failure of our education, both secular and Jewish, that so many Jews and Christians believe that it is permissible or even mandatory to boycott Israel. And it is a failure of profound proportions that a church committee representing the largest Canadian Protestant community, in a city with Canada’s largest Jewish community, could be so unaware of that community’s normative values that it could believe that it was acting morally, and with Jewish support, by targeting the world’s only Jewish State.
