I've heard this already a couple times on my book tour: "Hey, we shouldn't boycott settlement goods. It'll hurt job prospects for Palestinians!"
To me this sounds exactly like a white Afrikaaner saying, "Hey, if you try to end Apartheid, it'll hurt the black people we're kind enough to allow to leave their Bantustans occasionally and work for us at whatever wages we deem appropriate! (It's not like they have any other prospects... for some strange reason...)"
