@fabionatali @kawaiipunk I think this is not really helpful and I see no arguments besides "Israel is evil". How does the boycott of help any Palestiniens? Wouldn't it be one of the only possibilities for palestinien Techies to take part in such a conference? Couldn't the conference be a opportunity to give the palestinien tech-community a plattform?

@hng @fabionatali @kawaiipunk Boycott is sometimes strange.. but when the idea is to put pression on a government, FULL boycott is necessary. Culture, art, open-source convention, etc, are used today to serve the idea that Israel is a normal democratic state... but it’s not. We will go in Israel, buy Israel products, when this state will be respectful of the Palestinians.
