Observation: Keep It Simple: It's Cost Of Boycott Vs. Terror

Observation: Keep It Simple: It's Cost Of Boycott Vs. Terror

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date:3 February 2014

Let's not be sidelined over the question of the propriety of raising the
boycott threat.

The operative issue is clear and it is one that is intuitive to the Israeli
street: is the economic damage we may suffer from the deteriorated security
situation that would result from the creation of a sovereign Palestinian
state in a bad deal greater than the damage we may suffer from economic
sanctions if we reject a bad deal?

Those who warn about the deteriorated security situation aren't the
"ideologues". It's the "ideologues" who blindly insist that only the
absolute best case scenario will play out after the creation of sovereign
Palestinian state.

Yes, we should do everything in our power to minimize the threat and
potential damage of sanctions.

But the sound bite should be simple: "the cost of sanctions are nothing
compared to the cost to the economy of a bad deal that plunges us into a
security hell."
