Israeli Left Boycotts Jewish Goods from Settlements

From: Leiah and Jason Elbaum <elbaum@dircon.co.uk>

Dear IRIS Subscriber,

The following list has recently been distributed by Gush Shalom ("Peace Bloc"), a left-wing Israeli group calling for Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria ("the West Bank"), Gaza and the Golan Heights. Gush Shalom has recently called for a boycott of all products manufactured by Jewish businesses in these disputed areas and are calling for all such products to be clearly labelled as such. This echoes a recent Arab-sponsored resolution by the United Nations General Assembly calling for such a boycott internationally.

Others on the Israeli right have thanked Gush Shalom for their efforts, noting that this is apparently the first list to be compiled demonstrating the vast and diverse contribution of the Jewish communities in these areas to Israel's economy. Pro-settlement groups have called for supporters to favor goods produced in the Jewish settlements.

We provide this list for information only; whether or not IRIS subscribers wish to act on it and how they do so is, of course, up to them.

We would note that the list includes companies in Atarot Industrial Zone in northern Jerusalem. It is unclear to us why these companies were listed, while the many other Israeli companies in disputed parts of Jerusalem were omitted.

Gush Shalom plans to update the list periodically on the World Wide Web, where it is available at the following addresses:

<http://www.actcom.co.il/~pi/> <http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/9136/boycott.html> <http://www.ariga.com/boycottlist.htm>

Gush Shalom can be reached by e-mail at <pi@actcom.co.il> or by post at P.O. Box 3322, Tel Aviv 61033 Israel. Telephone: 03-5221732 (from abroad: 972-3-5221732). IRIS has no connection with the organisation.

List of Products from Settlements in the Occupied Territories

Please print this list and distribute it to your friends and relatives. Hang it on billboards next to your homes, in supermarkets and in your place of work. More importantly, browse the list when you are buying a product or looking for a service.

A penny to the settlements is a penny against peace

Note:

Agricultural products (Vegetables, Fruit and Flowers), constitute a major part of settlement production. They are usually mixed with products made in Israel, so currently, locating the exact origin of such products is nearly impossible.

We want the Israeli authorities to make this distinction possible by stating clearly whether a certain product is imported from in Israel or from a settlement.

You can help a lot by writing to your local store's management, demanding this marking and by constantly asking the storekeeper for the exact origin of such products.
