  • Ahh yes, the brutal, murderous Israeli leaders comin' to call. Can you spell "D-i-v-e-s-t," Mr. Cook?!
  • Disappointing Cook would choose to meet such a violent, racist, and deeply unpleasant man. Israel should be treated as South Africa was during the apharteit era.
  • So when Apple buys an Israeli tech company or adopts Israeli-made technology, you're going to toss your iPhone away?... C'mon.
  • Moroboshi....shut the **** up!!! Stop accusing if u have no idea what are u talking about!! I can tell the media washed ur brain!! Its Cook's problem who is choosing to meet..not ur problem Sent from the iMore App
  • He is absolutely right so, you shut the fuck up
  • With such eloquent language, perfect spelling, and a logical argument, I declare you the winner of this debate.
  • Israel gives its arab citizens more rights and privliges than any arab country gives its own arab citizens! Thats why they all want to live in Israel
  • +1 The BDS movement is the is nothing more than thinly veiled antisemitism.
  • Anti-semitism and anti-israel sentiments are totally unrelated viewpoints.
  • False. Are you also for a BDS movement against every other nation in the middle east?
  • I've never heard the term BDS, but I boycott goods from every nation with poor human rights records, so obviously that includes the entire Middle East.
  • The BDS Movement refers to Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.
  • You also seem to have a very poor grasp of English. To oppose someone based upon their race, sex, or sexuality is illogical. To oppose ideology and policy is entirely sensible.
  • ???
  • I dare say life was just peachy for the white minority in apartheid South Africa too, but that doesn't make their behavior morally justifiable. Israel is a rogue state, in breach of many UN resolutions and guilty of countless murders in its illegal pursuit of further territorial expansion. Cook likes to talk big of Apple's environmental responsibility, and yet trades with Israel and uses near slave labour in China. He's a hypocrite, to say the least. Sadly I doubt other tech companies are any less guilty.
  • Your comments are ridiculous. It did not take long for you to show your true colors.
  • Well done, guilty as charged. I'm against the illegal annexation of land, the seizure and /or destruction of farmland, running an oppressive terroristic state where civilians are regularly murdered, and where UN resolutions are routinely ignited. I'm funny that way.
  • Have the Palestinians violated any UN resolutions? Have the Palestinians murdered civilians? Are you also for a BDS movement against every other nation in the middle east?
  • It's very easy to sit in judgement of others trying to do big things. I'm sure you've got a lot on your plate so get busy. Oh wait, make sure you don't associate with anyone. They might be a racist. Make sure you don't take their money. They might be an anti-semite. Make sure you're not photographed with them. They might be oppressive to others. And that leaves no one left that I can think of. How about you? Let's see your unbiased list of amazing people who only do good deeds all while changing the world for the better.
  • How am I sitting in judgement of others trying to do big things?
  • True colors? He is saying his opinion. Shame on the US for voting against the recognition of Palestine as UN member against overwhelming worldwide support.
  • @moroboshi Agreed! Posted via the Android iMore App!
  • I think you should make sure you have a better view/idea of what such a large number of people really want before you make this statement.. I live in Algeria and the last place i want to live in is Israel.
    I have free health care. free education from the 1st grade till high education. equal chances of getting a job, the right to have a house, and everyone has a monthly payment from the petrol income of the country even if you don't have a job, I my self am currently studding to get my masters degree in Architecture and Project management and i didn't pay 1 penny.
    I'm Arabic, and i DO NOT want to live in Israel.
