3. Why just South Africa?
I'm sure the same type of argument against boycotts was used back during the days of Apartheid...

I've seen some very cohesive arguments as to why there should be a boycott of Israel, though to have a chance of being effective I think it needs to be done at the international level in the form of sanctions and has to be specific in its goals...

I'm not knowledgable enough about those who are promoting the idea of boycotts to know whether or not they do give attention to promoting Palestinian culture. If they don't, they should, but I don't think the promotion of those two things must be mutually exclusive...
