Best to keep the decisions distinct. Afaics from this article (not attempting to draw in any other sources, here), Airbnb was perfectly willing to do business in Israel; they only took the conservative step of not participating in an activity by Israel deemed illegal under international law. This is clearly altogether different from the "boycott Israel" movement; the boycotters would not be satisfied with Airbnb's decision, because it doesn't actively penalize Israel for violating international law. Israel in response proposed to penalize itself by refusing to do business with Airbnb: if you want to do business with us, you must participate in our internationally illegal activities.
