Boycott Israel to stop the carnage!


Boycott Israel to stop the carnage!
by Niloufar Parsi

many people do not know this, but african organisations involved in resisting South African racism and apartheid were labelled as 'terrorists' by the American administrations in the 80s. Reagan referred to people like Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko as terrorists. Western governments, corporations and financial institutions all supported and had a stake in Apartheid in South Africa. Yet they were all defeated. How? Simple: international boycott of South African products by ordinary citizens worldwide

Now we have another apartheid state in our region, based on a racist premise, and engaged in ethnic cleansing with impunity and supported by another world power that regularly engages in mass murder, namely, the US. As recently as in 2007, many would have laughed at the idea of any effective sanctions against the US. But that mythical time is long gone. The US is Highly vulnerable. Israel too is highly vulnerable.

So what would this entail? A simple change in shopping habits by ordinary people. despite the pretence to the contrary, Everything that we buy has a 'nationality'. It is easy to find out. Let us do that, and those goods that are clearly of Israeli origin or linked to companies that provide financial support to the state of Israel, boycott them! organise petitions. write letters, spread the word. make a list of known israeli products and brands and circulate it to everyone who cares.

Yes we can.

It has been done before. We can do it again.

This kind of collective civil society action against genocide is what makes a true 'international community' and helps us revive hope in the human spirit.

an interesting piece of history

by Niloufar Parsi on

Check out this article on how the US has blocked calls for a boycott of israel before:

The United States has threatened to fine US companies that take part in an Arab lead economic boycott of Israel. 

Luckily, the US is no longer in a position to make such impositions.

Thank you for the information Niloufar jaan.
As a mother of 2 kids -2 and 5- I will do all I can to support the boycott of the merchandise you've mentioned.

There are plenty of other brands to use -- who don't support the murder of innocent children.

It is amazing to see that

It is amazing to see that with $15M/day aid from US taxpayers pocket and so much from businesses, Israel Government is at their knees and paralyzed to deal with some 1.5M people striken by poverty.

Given the lack of experience here, it seems I have to put Mehdi's video one more time back up:


WOW Niloufar!

by IRANdokht on

What an impressive list! I was actually reading this one.


It has the answers to all those questions you hear from the "concerned" people.

I have to admit at first I didn't think it was practical, but it seems like when people realize their voices are not heard by their reps, they take matters into their own hands. Now I am hearing about this action from everyone and I have more faith in its effectiveness.

Thank you so much for your effortsand best of luck to the good people of the world

I can see how it appears to be a wasted effort upon them, however I don't want to give Niloufar or IRANdokht the satisfaction of thinking that everyone is so stupid as to follow them or see right through them.

People like that are in fact extremely dangerous, and epitomize the concept of "a wolf in sheep's clothing".

Just as they have their zero tolerance policy for those who don't offer complete capitulation to their ideology, I have zero tolerance for their, well, zero tolerance.

Dutch boycott on Israeli products

by capt_ayhab on


A Dutch web site has been set up to explain people how to boycott
Israeli products, to protest against it's behavior. For participants,
it's a simple way of making one's voice heard, through one's wallet.

As all products in grocery stores are labeled with a bar code, it's
quite easy to recognize goods from countries one wants to boycott. For
instance, Israel has code 729xxxxxxxx.


Please click on the link to see the products, at least some that are not posted by the lady of the thread.

Feels good?

by Zion on

Enjoying the power? Here is something you can daydream about. What would you do to those darned Zionists if you had your fingers on rockets that would blow the f**s up instead of just delete their comments. You would feel almost orgasmic judging by you and your track record here and all that.
(of course you'd be only doing it for the sake of Gaza children... Of course!)



by Anonymous fish (not verified) on

you couldnt have said it better but i'm afraid it's just wasted effort. there is simply zero tolerance for any discussion which does not involved casting jews as the villian. THEIR agenda has less to do with boycotting israel in support for palestine as it is an opportunity to voice their vicious sentiments against the jewish people. there is no question that everyone deplores what's going on in Gaza, even AND especially the jewish people. but this has gone WAY past a simple declaration of support. this is nothing more than simply racism and it's finally getting a platform.

any intelligent person knows that boycotts are futile. it's been proven time and time again. it's these very same people who speak out AGAINST sanctions in iran because it affects the PEOPLE, not the regime holding them hostage. the hypocrisy is in thinking that this is any different.

if and when the US does impose more sanctions against iran, i will be looking for these same individuals to start castigating the US. please don't try to explain the difference between the two, i AM fully aware. what YOU are ignoring is the sentiment behind them and now your true intention is very clear.

You continue to constantly strive to project yourself as forward-thinking, open-minded, progressive, fair and just, yet you will criticize with gusto anyone and everyone with whom you disagree without so much as blinking. I honestly have never encountered anyone as intoxicated by such an overwhelming sense of superiority and pure ego.

I would really like to know what is this "hidden agenda" that you speak of, and what is it that leads you to believe that either Niloufar or yourself are so influential and powerful as to have the ability to evoke in me feelings of anger and/or frustration?

My position from the beginning has been that the basis of this boycott is pure bigotry, and my position remains so. In addition, there are so many degrees of separation between many of these companies and Israel, that the reasoning being used is sheer nonsense. Many of these companies are publicly owned with publicly traded stock.

Some happen to have CEOs and/or senior execs who happen to be Jewish. Whether or not they donate their own money to Jewish causes or causes that are of interest to the Israeli government is their business, not mine, yours or anyone else's.

These companies employ countless people either directly or through their various vendors and suppliers, in countries throughout Central and South America, and the Far East, with monthly wages that still are not adequate enough to fill the gas tank on your car, even at today's lower pump prices.

These are the people who would be directly affected first and foremost, Poor, indigent, sweatshop laborers who have nothing to do with Israel, and likely couldn't locate it on a map.

But maybe that's OK with you, so long as you successfully send your message and prove your point to the big, bad evil Jew, right?

You and Niloufar either cannot understand that or you both refuse to see that, as well as the fact that if you already have an adequate supply of products from these companies in your home, the desired effect of the boycott is muted.

It's like when a drug addict or alcoholic says he or she will quit and go into rehab, vowing they will never use again......... just as soon as they finish their stash or empty this one final liquor bottle.

So, whatever my hidden agenda happens to be, do tell.

P.S. Do you have Time Warner as your current cable provider? Do you have your Prius financed with Toyota Motor Credit/Toyota Financial Services? If you do, that presents quite the conundrum.

Also, Johnny Rocket's, the 1950's style diner, is not owned by Apex. It's owned by Red Zone Capital, and has multiple locations in Kuwait, Bahrain, Dubai, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. And in all of those locations, the meat is halal.

No locations in Israel.

I know what you must be thinking. The Jews tricked you again.


Niloufar aziz

by IRANdokht on

You're absolutely right. The personal attacks and insults are the obvious sign of a hidden agenda that is not going too well and causing frustration. Luckily this type of behavior backfires and causes more people to pay attention to the message which in turn makes them even angrier and produces more insulting objections. Being on the positive end of that cycle is the reward for your patience.

keep up the good work!

Glad to help

by Kaveh Nouraee on

I truly hope that you receive maximum exposure, in order to ensure that all of the hypocrisy, phoniness, shallowness and empty self-righteousness that you wannabe activists project reaches as wide an audience as possible.

Besides, to keep something as laugh inducing as this all to myself would be very greedy and selfish of me, and I was raised to share.

by NiloufarParsi (not verified) on

Thanks so much for that. You are very kind and i always enjoy reading your comments.

My 'patience' comes from knowing that this is not about me, and those who try to throw personal insults at us also are not really addressing us, rather they have other motives.

I am very much indebted to kaveh and others in fact for helping to push this campaign up on the 'most discussed' list. we are now on every page of this site with much greater visibility. And he could not stop 'laughing at me' throughout while doing that...



Niloufar jan

by IRANdokht on

I had already boycotted most of these anyway... all is left to do is boycott Estee Lauder! since I have not had Coca cola or Nestlee in over two weeks either anyway, won't be missing much...

Thank you for doing such great analysis, bringing the news and ideas, and being so good at debates, I admire your patience.  I'll also make sure to spread the word.


Niloufar Parsi


by Niloufar Parsi on

That was so funny! I had seen the website but hadn't taken notice of the rediculous picture until you highlighted it. Thanks for the laugh. Really needed it...

doostan, if are interested but have not had a chance yet, pls start an email campaign of the product list. it's time consuming, but it has real impact. we can pass this list to a huge number of people between us.

i gotta sleep. am in the european time zone.


i am saddened that you can describe the situation of gazans as 'playing the victim'. dunno what else to say about that.' wish you could reconsider your heartless position on that.



Niloufar, a funny point

by Khadij (not verified) on


I'm surprise crap like this wasn't already boycotted!

There is no accounting for taste!

Kaveh Nouraee

I'm not laughing one bit at what Palestinian civilians have been subjected to. It's both heartbreaking and angering at the same time.

But despite what you may want to believe, it is not a war on civilians. I am not going to try and BS you and say civilians are not dying and otherwise suffering. They are dying, they are suffering, and to put it mildly, it sucks. But it's Hamas that's the problem here. They are nothing but a cancer to the Mideast. They're so hell-bent on going after Israel, they don't give a crap that Palestinian babies are getting blown up.

I'm sorry, but despite what Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, the IRI or anyone else thinks, there's not a single child on the face of this earth that wants to become a martyr before they enter kindergarten.

What I am finding to be very funny is the way some people believe their own hype. But it's also as sad as it is laughable.

The ties these products and companies have to Israel in many cases are tenuous at best.

Israeli companies manufacture agricultural and military equipment, firearms for civilian use, some textiles and some food products. The companies that are listed in this boycott are publicly owned and traded companies that are based in either North America or Europe, with manufacturing facilities in their home countries, but more likely in countries in Central or South America, or in the Far East, where labor is dirt cheap.

Many of these companies have CEOs or senior execs who are Jewish and who may be donating their own money to Jewish causes.

Before a boycott such as this would affect the Israeli economy even in the slightest, these companies would have to be deeply impacted financially. In order to do that, vendors, suppliers, laborers and everyone else would have to be sacrificed first. And none of these are found in Israel.

Laborers in South America or Africa who pick coffee beans that end up at Starbucks for example, earning pennies a day, who probably have never even seen an ocean, let alone know the conflicts that occur on the other side of it, would suffer, not the Israeli economy.

One of the reasons to enact a boycott is to send the message of "we don't need you, you need us, so take your products or services and shove it" to the ones from which you are trying to affect change.

Lastly, when you cherry-pick certain elements of the boycott, in this case, saying "don't buy anything from these companies", when you might have a supply of these everyday household name products throughout the house that you won't dispose of in protest, it lends nothing in the way of credibility. It becomes nothing but a show.
