Boycott Israel products


The list of the companies which support/relate to Israel can be viewed here

Tesco and Sainsbury are too included.

"We think of the common potato as being part of Irish history. We may imagine that all potatoes sold in Irish shops are grown in Ireland. However, many Irish shops and supermarkets, including Dunnes Stores, Tesco and Marks & Spencer sell Israeli Potatoes, rather than Irish spuds. The profits from, and taxes imposed on, these goods help Israel to maintain and expand its 40-year old illegal occupation of Palestine. For example, the largest exporter of fruit and veg, Carmel-Agrexco, is half owned by the Israeli State."

Like our Tun Dr. Mahathir urged

"Incidentally we should also realise that we are, in a small way, helping Israel. Israeli persimmons (pisang kaki) are sold in supermarkets in Kuala Lumpur. We propose that the peoples of the world boycott Israeli products and stop all trade with Israel"

It's the least we muslims can do to help our brothers and sisters  in Palestine. Much more effective than just lashing out on the streets.

Salam Azyyati,

Di dunia Islam, ramai manusia yang bercakap dan menggesa tetapi tindakan tidak dilakukan sebenarnya.

Di negara kita sendiri, berapa keratkah rakyat Islamnya yang bercakap dan bertindak?

Uncle cukup sedih dengan apa yang berlaku di palestin dan uncle cukup marah dengan sikap dunia Islam. Terutama Arab yang berpeluk tubuh.

Ya betul tu, takde motif bercakap kalau tiada tindakan seterusnya. Saya pun tak tau nak cakap ape dah. Yang penting kita kena tolong mereka walaupun sekecil zarah, boikot barang Israel ni sebenarnya sangat berkesan kalau dibuat secara besar-besaran.

Kalau la saya ni PM Malaysia, confirm saya akan haramkan semua produk yang berkepentingan Israel. Bukan setakat tampal label 'BOIKOT BARANG ISRAEL' tapi diri sendiri pejam mata ambil Johnson&Johnson dan bayar di kaunter.
