Israeli fear boycott if peace talks fail

Some Israelis warn pro-Palestinian boycott of its economy could gain momentum if peace talks fail.

    An international campaign to boycott Israel is gaining momentum in Europe.

    Eight years ago, pro-Palestinian activists started a boycott targeting Israel's economy in an effort to end the occupation.

    The impact has so far been minimal.

    But if US-led peace talks fail, some Israelis fear the movement will accelerate, especially with growing pressure from the European Union, a major trading partner.
