The Big Campaign - Boycott Israeli Goods from "The Big Campaign Boycott Israeli Goods" on Causes
The Palestine Solidarity Campaign launched the Boycott Israeli Goods Campaign
in the House of Commons on the 4th July 2001.
There had been calls for a boycott from within Israel itself as well as in the Occupied Territories.
The decision to launch the BIG Campaign followed decades of Israel 's refusal to abide by UN Resolutions,
International Humanitarian law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.
On 9th June 2005, after the International Court of Justice's ruling against Israel's apartheid wall,
a coalition of Palestinian Civil Society Organisations issued a 'Call for Boycott,
Divestment and Sanctions against apartheid Israel until it complies with International Law'.
A-Z list of products.
All major supermarkets stock Israeli goods,
with many also offering items made in illegal settlements.
The aim is to highlight this, calling on shoppers
to boycott these products and on retailers to refuse to stock them.

Don't buy products made to fund the terror campaign against palestinians.
You'll be surprised as to how many products we buy daily without giving
a single thought contribute to this genocide.
729 Barcode(Israeli Bar Code Association - EAN Israel )
A barcode starting with "729"indicates that this product is produced in Israël.
Although it is not a perfect way of telling when a product is from Israel, but it is a good rule of thumb.
Same is true about barcode "500".
Here lies the catch , its not so simple.
Upon investigating the barcodes of know Israeli goods people
found the barcodes weren't always correct.
So all israeli products dont carry 729 barcode esp several food items from Israel
which could be from the occupied territories eg Barcodes
So we recommend that you not go by the barcode number,
or that you check both the number and the country of origin, where listed.
If in doubt, try to buy products that are clearly labeled.
This is, in any case, good shopping practice!
Israel destroys Palestinian lives, livelihoods and homes daily, refuses to stop building
its illegal settlements and apartheid wall on stolen land , denies Palestinian refugees
their right to return, grows produce and sets up industrial zones on stolen Palestinian land.
Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem are all under an illegal occupation by Israel,
which profits from exporting goods, including fruit and vegetables and herbs, grown in illegally occupied land.
By flogging the Palestinian resources to corporations across the world,
they are able to attain large profits, which will contribute towards the state-supported war against occupied Palestine .
see this event isnt against people of the Jewish faith; this is against the people of the inhumane Zionist ideological belief
Did your jaw drop when you heard about this?
Further the Zionist Ideological Belief is about a homeland for the Jewish people, and in no way is inhumane. In fact, the Israeli military holds itself to the highest standards out of any military in the world. It does not call for the destruction of another people. Oh wait, that's Hamas! Why don't you call for a boycott of Hamas?? Oh yeah because they've never contributed anything to this world apart from human shields - that's what I call inhumane.
I never say boycott any thing, your Christians and orthodox Jews are saying that, it is there in the media. We Muslims are the affected one any thing is expected from the suppressed one, but if they are wrong why the other religions and countries are following that. Any way I do not say for boycott, we should thing only on humanitarian grounds. Any where any country doing genocide is wrong. Muslims were killed in Burma, Philippines, Czechoslovakia, Kashmir, India. And any Muslim group killing in the name of Islam is doing wrong, it is against the Islam. Muslims are only allowed to fight when non-Muslim take weapon and kill them. The word of killing non-Muslims in Quran was only for Arab Pagans and that was for that particular time, No other religion people were killed till they took the weapon and fought.
Any way I am picking a single brick and trying to show you the whole building, which is not possible. But it is your basic right to find out the exact truth and facts and figures. but please do not follow the later followers of a religion, you may find out bad image of that religion which may not be true.
Allah(the God Almighty) has revealed his final revelation, please do read and understand it, your many queries will be solved, but learn it from authentic source. An enemy of a religion will always try to fabricate and put wrong things to misguide.
The decision is yours. May Allah show you the right path(Amen)
About 19% of the Quran is devoted to the violent conquest and subjugation of non-Muslims:
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides, whom ye may not know (8:60)
Muslims are to expect a reward in this life as well as the next (4:134), so it makes sense that unbelievers should be punished in this life as well:
…He whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide. For them is a penalty in the life of this world, but harder, truly, is the penalty of the Hereafter… (13:33-34)

Let me make one thing clear about Quran, it is a whole constitution given by Allah(GOD) to human being to live their life including politics, how to do business, how to deal with people, and what so ever is necessary for human being to live their life. It is not just a book of good and fancy words, but a whole constitution to even run a state.
Keeping in mind this, if any country has an army to defend her existence, is that bad?, or if your country has police to fight bad people, is that bad? Criminal will never say that he is doing wrong, he will always say that this world is unjust for him. Every stat/country has a constitution and Quran is a constitution for Muslims.
You take any religion scripture it always speak for fighting bad people.
In Quran word JIHAD means "to strive or struggle", it is rarely used for killing people, in Arabic for fighting and killing, word used is QITTAL, or UQTALLO, which is used only for pagons, who denied the scripture, it is never used for other non-Muslims. and even that was made clear that if the pagon throw away his weapon, or enter a place of worship or he/she is old, child or women, do not raise weapon against them. Do not cut trees when you enter any country or even damage property of that country. These rules are there, but if a Muslim does not follow it , that is not the fault of Islam, thing are set and thus he will definitely be punished in the life hereafter for the bad deeds even if he is a Muslim. Being a Muslim does not certify that he will always be rewarded in the life hereafter, he should strive hard to be a good Muslim, means good to other people.
Any statement given in Quran has its context and the whole topic of discussion should be read instead of just a single verse that will always mislead a person.
Please no offense, this is my way of explaining things in detail, so I again apologize if i hurt any one's feelings, light is an obvious and prominent thing in darkness, people come to it by choice not by force, only needs the power of vision, blind folded person will never come to light, that blind fold has to be removed to judge the facts. To clarify is the right of Muslims, specially regarding their own religion
Any way the other thing regarding history, it is clearly written under the topic, Visits Jerusalem in 637 CE of Umar (Umar ibn Al-Khattāb, Umar Son of Al-Khattab, born 579 CE – died 3 November 644 CE), was one of the most powerful and influential Muslim caliphs(guardians) in history) on Wikipedia the free encyclopedia. You can refer to it by a click of a button.
Recently on the Facebook uploaded, a speech given within the British parliament by a British parliamentarian clearly said that it the British government to be blamed for what is happening in Gaza.
You know that India was also under British rule, if suppose, instead of Palestine British government had handed over India to the Jews, what do you think would have been the reaction of Indian people against the new settlers, I think not different from the Palestinian.
I personally think that boycotting Israeli products is not the answer for this problem. All our decisions and deeds should be on humanitarian basis. Killing thousands of innocent women and children is by no law or religion acceptable.
By the way don't comment on some ones knowledge, you don't know my education status and who I am, it may take three or four pages to write down my degrees name just and I am a student of comparative religion, I know the history of all major religions. My request would be please do not comment on personalities and do not get personal, just take a deep breath and do a positive discussion with nice words.
For example, Disney shouldn't be on here anymore. GAP is fine, just don't buy their underwear (which is made in Israel, by Delta Galil). Johnson&Johnson is also fine, only the medical supplies are not.
No one likes this war. No one. Both sides, I guarantee you, are sick of it. People, from what I've noticed, are complaining about it and even leaving these places to avoid having to fight. The problem? Both sides want the same patch of ground as it is the most important little patch in our cultures. There is fighting now. There will probably be fighting later on, even after an agreement is reached, and I doubt it will ever fully stop.
As for saying we're leaches who need to be wiped out? (And I've seen this a few times.) We don't deserve to be wiped out anymore than the idiots who waste their money and time feeding into something they don't know or really understand. Sure you understand the story behind it, but you don't understand the level of faith these people, myself included, have towards it. Personally though I don't agree with the fighting. (We were told to love and directed not to kill. At least not like this I'm sure.) Personally I think nothing should be on that spot until we can agree on something. No one should get special privileges. No one. The Muslims can't tell us we can't be there, at any point, and we can't tell them to leave either. We can all just pray on dirt in peace for now. If you don't like the war that's going on you should probably boycott your own country and tell them to get their backsides out of the way. Send medical help and relief instead of troops.
That's my two cents. Take it or leave it.
Israel will keep on terrorize Gaza because US government shielding them, no condemnation, no sanctions, nothing.
I pray for Palestinian and also for US. If only Obama has a little bit of gut to stop Israel from terrorize Palestine land.
American tax payers are parasites. Many Americans originate from Europe and took the land from Native Americans. Some others are illegally living in America. They are living in land taken by force from the Native Americans.
These are not the only cases of people being 'parasites' in lands that did not belong to them, but the few that come up in my head of the moment. And what about the human race? We destroy habitats that animals have peacefully lived in longer than we have been on Earth. We hunt them for reasons other than our need to survive. At what point do we reason that the whole human population consists solely of parasites and we should all get wiped out?
Parasite: obtains by force.
