Another BDS fail. Gaza loves Caterpillar

At its core, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) movement is awash in hypocrisy.

Since the very beginning, Caterpillar has been in the BDS'ers crosshairs.

But boycotts should begin at home.  There are Caterpillar dealerships in both Ramallah and in Gaza

Its' been claimed that "Palestinian civil society " is behind the movement to boycott the region's only democracy. Yet clearly the Palestinians have rejected a boycott of Caterpillar.

Caterpillar in Gaza
If Palestinians in the West bank and Gaza have already  rejected a boycott of Caterpillar, why should the Americans and Europeans be pressured to ignore their wishes ? 

If the Palestinians do not boycott Caterpillar, why should anyone?
