Israel Boycott Progress

The Boycott of Israel continues to grow. While it may be unfortunate that athletes or other seemingly unrelated persons are being singled out, I can understand the value in doing so. Those boycotted will assail the government of Israel and change their behavior.

Chocolate Boycott:
"Palestine solidarity activists in Sydney have launched a campaign targeting Max Brenner Chocolates, a 100% Israeli-owned company belonging to the Strauss Group, as part of the growing international boycott Israel movement."

Hampshire College becomes first college in U.S. to divest from Israeli Occupation!
Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, has become the first of any college or university in the U.S. to divest from companies on the grounds of their involvement in the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Church Warns Companies:
The Presbyterian Church on Friday warned four US companies to stop providing military equipment and technology to Israel for use in the occupation of the Palestinian territories, or else face a vote by the Church to divest its stock in them.

Here is a nice, long list of Israeli-related companies.
Hopefully, you will join in the boycott of these companies and it will help to end Israeli Apartheid and Israeli Genocide.
