making the comfortable uncomfortable

At the blog 972, Max Blumenthal and Joseph Dana have written a piece called Who's Afraid of BDS? that was prompted by a conversation they had in a Tel Aviv restaurant with a waitress on the subject of the occupation. It has to do with the ability to be deliberately uninvolved with the righting of injustice, the ability to look away and be comfortable when bad things are happening just a few miles away, the ability to put something out of mind and get along fine while someone else has terrible problems for which one is responsible.

We in America are guilty of this. I look upon this blog as an effort to make the comfortable uncomfortable. Please read Who's Afraid of BDS?
