BIG – Boycott Israeli Goods



Well I have decided that I shall boycott all Israeli Goods. This dosent affect my new job, though we do only stock 1 line of Israeli products and I would never use it anyway. There is a handy list of Israeli products on this website

Why Boycott Israel?

The Palestinian people are experiencing their fortieth year of military occupation. The siege by the Israeli army and the economic blockade have devastated their daily lives so that ‘normal’ life is impossible.

Israel operates an entrenched system of racial Apartheid against its own non-Jewish inhabitants and has been illegally occupying Palestinian land in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights since 1967. It has sought to further annex these lands and has systematically transferred its own civilian population into these occupied territories in contravention of international law. Israel continues to build the illegal Apartheid wall, annexing vast swathes of Palestinian land in the West Bank and creating Palestinian ghettos, despite the ruling of the International Court of Justice that it is illegal

180 Palestinian organisations and unions, in response to Israeli onslaught, have called for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel.

  1. I assume you already boycott Saudi and Iranian oil, Chinese-made electronics, Zimbabwean fruit and vegetables, Russian natural gas, and any other products coming from countries with less-than-savoury governments?

    No? Then why have you singled out the Jewish state for boycott?

  2. So non-Western states have a free hand? You’re willing to turn a blind eye to the murder and repression of innocent people simply because they happen not to be “Western”? Or is it that you believe that non-Westerners are incapable of acting morally and so shouldn’t be penalised if they do not?

    Incidentally, I assume the fact that you aren’t boycotting American and British products means that you condone their actions in Iraq?

  3. I think you need to take a serious look at the way you view the situation in Israel. Read more, you don’t sound you have thought this through.

    Take a look at my blog, there is a response to this.
    Couple of things you may want to consider.

    Boycott Israel Response

  4. I’ve decided to boycott Ireland until they stop their violent repression of the British. Ireland is an aparteid state which has created an economic blockade which has devasted the daily lives of many innocent British citizens. These British civilians are enduring unconscionable oppression at the hands of the morally repugnant Irish Empire.

    The western Irish use their position of power as the puppet masters of the one world government to illegally annex British lands. The British people are suffering at the hands of this oppressive apartheid state. Join me in my boycott of the mighty Irish Empire until the poor, defenseless Brits are allowed to rule again.

    Funny, people buy into it when people twist the truth about Israel but lies written about Ireland have yet to illicit a boycott. You may want to check your facts because the Israeli people are under incredible duress from a constant barage of attacks.

    The vast majority of “palestinian freedom fighters” come from wealthy Saudi Arabian backgrounds. They use suicide attacks in crowded marketplaces to target victims which will illicit the greatest response from Israeli politicians. Innocent women and children are dying daily at the hands of Saudi terrorists who make life difficult for Jews and Arabs alike.

    Use some common sense before you take the bully’s side. Typical Tory nonsense.

  5. Just to let you know Ahmed, I have Palestinian friends, who are not rich, I am not a Tory memeber in fact a Fine Gael and Lib Dem supporter. If you read my blog you’d know that.
