I too am glad to see coverage of the Olympia Co-op’s decision to boycott Israeli products (“Principled and Courageous,” Letters, Aug. 6). It goes to show how narrow-minded some supposedly intelligent people can be. You talk about Israeli crimes against the Palestinians. Where were you, where was the co-op, when the Palestinians were bombing civilians on the streets, buses, public eating places in Israel? Where are you today re: the indiscriminate sending of rockets into Israel?
As a Jew you may not consider yourself as being represented by Israel or Zionism. There were many in Germany during the 1930s who thought the same way.
