One has to wonder why Sir Bob Russell limits his wish for labelling of Israeli goods to drugs. Why not mobile phones? Why not computers? Why not any of the other scientific breakthroughs that have come from Israel? We challenge Sir Bob to spend a week without using any invention tainted (as he would see it) by Israelis. We do not wish him ill, but we do wonder how he would cope in a hospital bed, poring over his drugs to check that none had resulted from an Israeli scientist’s discovery.
