You mentioned something you saw the other night, the ReWalk device that helps paraplegics stand and move. It looks like a miraculous device, and I bet a lot of paraplegics would like to have access to it. The ReWalk is made in Israel, so does this mean that the boycott-Israel movement would prevent paraplegics from getting this device?

Why, yes it would, it seems, based on my reading of boycott movement material (some boycotters insist they are only boycotting products made in settlements, but most of the so-called Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement seeks to shun anything produced by Jewish Israelis. A boycott is a boycott, after all. I'm sure paraplegics would understand.
