John Pilger has made two films with the title Palestine is Still the Issue, twenty-five years apart. He may not live long enough to make a third, but many of us may be around to think about it, in 2027. What a sad thought for the Palestinians.

If you do nothing else, you can (a) boycott any products with zionist connections, (b) let the outlets know of your boycott and (c) buy Palestinian products.

You might even collect the murderers' products in a supermarket, leave them at the tills and give your reasons for not buying them.

Here's a list to get you going.

Starbucks
River Island
Timberland
Victorias Secret
Bath & Body Works
The Limited Stores
The Home Depot
Disney
AOL/Time Warner
Coca Cola
Este Lauder
Sarah Lee (Hanes, Playtex, Leggs, Champion)
Fox News & Entertainment
Any Murdoch News Corporation product
Nestl
Overseas Adventure Travel (Massachusetts)
IBM
Kimberly-Clark (Huggies, Kotex, Kleenex)
Nokia
Desert Eagle
Caterpillar (machinery and clothing)

plus:
Tivall vegetarian foods
Lots of herbs are Israeli in origin, potatoes and carrots at certain times of the year
some Dead Sea cosmetics products, such as Ahava, Dead Sea Magik, GADI21, -417, VivO, Nevo and Sea Spa Skincare. YesTo, even Morrocan Oil is an Israeli company
Amav
Carmel Agrexco
Mehadrin
Jaffa
Tesco
Check where dates originate
Keter (plastics, many diy hangars have their products)
Stanley/Black & Decker
Sodastream
Lees Carpets
Jordan River
Veolia
Teva generic drugs
Believe it or not, the diamond trade is worth a fortune to Israel

Israeli consumer barcodes start with 729 but double check products.

Make sure you also buycott Palestinian products (e.g. Zaytoun)

If you have any to add here, feel free, I'd be grateful to hear of stuff.

Here's a very useful website to help you explain why certain companies should be shunned and another one here.

Visit whoprofits.org to find out who makes money from the illegal occupation of Palestinian lands and, of course, keep an eye on the BDS website.

It's an easy list to avoid!

However, I don't think Nokia should be on that list. The part of Nokia with strong connections to Israel has been sold off - and in any case, much of Nokia is now owned by Microsoft.

Disney also no longer have their "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel" exhibition.

Just stop buying everything. That'll sort all sorts of problems.

Err, starting from the future.

Quote:
UK supermarket giant Tesco has SUSPENDED sale of products originating from the conflict zone of West Bank starting from September, The Jewish Chronicle reported.


They still buy other Israeli stuff. It's in a Tesco near here which is currently being targeted.

That store had potatoes from Israel recently, which - the murderous foreign regime occupying Gaza aside - is bonkers. I live in the emerald isle, the land of potatoes. Rolling Eyes

Well, it looks like Israel did a great job.

Read this from Noam Chomsky.

Quote:
Support hasnt been this high for Hamas since 2006, when it won a fair and square democratic election. If a presidential vote were held today, the pollsters of PSR discovered, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh would beat Fatahs Mahmoud Abbas hands down.

Is it me, or do you notice a strange symmetry between Israel in say, 1948 and ISIS today?

Terrorist in not a new word.

The Strangler Fig

Quote:
Israel oversees the careers of politicians throughout the US from the city and county level up to state and national races to make sure that no one hostile to Israel achieves significant political office


Quote:
It maintains control of news, cinema, television, publishing and other media, so that its narrative will dominate public portrayal of Middle East issues. It even implants both volunteers and paid staff to populate web comment lists.


No surprises there.

Quote:
although Iran has no nuclear weapons program, never had one and never proposed to have one, and although the US has repeatedly found no evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program and only evidence to the contrary, the US continues to impose sanctions against Iran for the sole reason that Israel wants to do as much damage as possible to Iran


And so it goes.

Getting a 404 on that right now, but (if this is the same piece) it's also on counterpunch.

More evidence (though how much more can you stomach?) that Israel is vying for the "An-Even-More-Evil-Regime-Than-The-American-Version" award.

Quote:
Israel has banned Human Right Watch investigators from entering Gaza since 2006; Amnesty International has been refused access since 2012. Dr. Mads Gilbert is the latest esteemed persona non grata to be added to this growing list.

Quote:
Every year over half of the oil produced in Palestine is lost due to the lack of access to international markets. Each farmer* must apply for a yearly license from Israel to harvest their own olives. Many of these families have lost their sons in the conflict or they are in jail so they simply do not have the man-power to harvest. Typically, the Israeli authority grants a one day license to a farmer that may have 300 trees. Harvesting is a near impossible task for a lone farmer.


*Don't forget, they're talking about an olive-grower having to apply to a different country for permission to harvest.

Source

Do one good thing.



Further into the article:

Quote:
Currently the Israeli Occupation Forces use stun grenades, tear gas grenades and metal canisters, steel bullets coated with a thin layer of black rubber (which they insist on calling rubber bullets), live ammunition and skunk water. Skunk water is a sort of mist fired out of water cannons which has the smell of raw sewage. It is almost impossible to get rid of and can linger for up to five years. According to the Israeli authority, The recipe is based entirely on natural organic ingredients, including yeast and baking powder. It does not include any harmful materials, and may even be ingested without causing harm.


That last sentence shows the Zionist regime has learnt from their US funders how to PR-speak extremely well.

Seems the Guardian didn't like the idea that Israel wanted Palestinian gas.

Good bloke, Nafeezz Ahmed
