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'.
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)
