Boycott Israeli goods ad on Palestinian TV sponsored by Spanish government

I think this is about as blatant as interference with another country's affairs can get short of outright war. The Spanish government(!) sponsored an advertisement on official 'Palestinian Authority' television last week, calling for a boycott of all Israeli products.

The ad is sponsored by the Spanish government, the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and AECID - the Spanish governmental humanitarian aid development.

Just like buying blue and white in Israel, or red, white and blue in the US, no? Except that this ad has some violence in it (note the gunfire) and this ad is sponsored by a foreign government.

Anyone up for a boycott of Spain?
