'Electronic Intifada' Article recognizes that divestment is boycott
December 27, 2004
One of the arguments presented to the Office of Antiboycott Compliance in the pursuit of prosecution was the establishment that divestment is by definition a form of boycott. That argument was accepted, and now the Palestinian website 'Electronic Intifada' recognizes that fact, establishing that both sides of the issue recognize the fact that divestment is a form of boycott.

While this may appear to be a minor issue, it is an important link in the establishment that the divest-from-Israel campaign is in fact a form if illegal boycott. It also shows a direct link between the divestment campaign and a concerted boycott effort.

In an article on their website at http://electronicintifada.net/bytopic/173.shtml, 'Electronic Intifada' published:

Divestment and Boycott
Through divestment, stopping capital investment in companies that do business in Israel, and boycott, not buying Israeli products, people can bring justice to the Israelis and Palestinians as well. Some investments have very direct links to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the oppression of the Palestinian people.
