This is the last time I buy Israeli nerve gas or cluster bombs
In God's name, why? When all 27 EU Foreign Ministers recently condemned Israel's demolition of Palestinian homes, its continued expansion of the illegal settlements and the impunity with which the "settler" terrorists attack - and frequently murder - Palestinian residents (violence which has grown by 150% over the past year); when Israel is no nearer to complying with international law than at any time during the 45-year illegal occupation; and when it already abuses EU tax breaks by passing off Palestinian goods as "Israeli" to defraud the EU of tax revenue? The EU is going to reward all this with more opportunities for tax fraud, and more bunches of flowers for the nice murderers? WTF?
Up to now I've taken the view that an out and out boycott of Israeli goods was probably over the top, concentrating my fire on the stuff from the Occupied Territories being fraudulently passed off as "Israeli". But if the EU's money men continue to ignore not only the reality of the world's biggest serial human rights abuser, but the clear foreign policy of the organisation they work for, then maybe the time has come for ordinary people to take action.
So from here onwards I shall be looking even more carefully at the labels in the supermarket. As British supermarkets don't sell rifles, machine guns, or computer malware (among Israel's principal exports), I don't expect to find too much to boycott, but you never know.
Beyond supermarkets, here is a list of companies supposedly "supporting" Israel, though what that involves I'm not sure. There are maybe half a dozen on the list that I patronise, and I shall be checking them out.
