Boycott Israel << click here.

"On Wednesday, more than 2,000 Muslim restaurants in Malaysia said they would remove Coca-Cola from their menus as part of a boycott of American products in protest of U.S. support for Israel."

"A boycott is the best way for us to protest Zionist cruelty against the Palestinian people as consumers can weaken the economy of countries like Israel and its ally, the US,"
Dr Maamor (from the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Assoc).

Remember, every little thing COUNTS.

nameless: the decision of taking action from the arab countries has been made clear from their silence. And apparently, we can't influence that decision. What we can do is donate, pray and try to influence Israel's economy (supported by the states). I'm not sure if the boycott will infact affect the US economy, but what i do know is that they are in the middle of an economical crisis, and are holding onto everything right now.. I also undestand that local franchisers will get affected..

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir had earlier said:

"If you stop accepting US currency, the US can't trade and can't make any money, it will become very poor and it will have to stop the production of more and more weapons in order to kill people," << Again, the logic behind this is questionable.. but what else is there for us to do?

and by us, i mean citicenz, consumers, people who have no say when it comes to the BIG decisions.

I gotta agree with 'nameless' on this one, this is a very optimistic and I'm sorry to say it but sad excuse to make yourself feel better about doing nothing (my opinion)

You think that if everyone in the world stopped drinking Starbucks Israel would give up and leave Gaza alone?

Granted, what's going on over there is completely fucked up. And fucked up from both ends. When you fight fire with fire all hell breaks loose. I can't imagine what people are going through over there, so I won't judge their actions. Still, people who support reckless killing from either side that harms innocents are just wrong. And don't give me bullshit about all Israeli's being evil. A child is always innocent.

I don't want to keep ranting because it won't stop. But I just wanted to say that I agree in that thee pointless boycotts are fantasies. If you want to get involved go and seriously involve yourself. Otherwise, live your life happily knowing that you're lucky to be where you are. Talk is cheap.

sadia: i feel the same way too :)

Anon: The US is the number one ally to Israel (they even refrained from voting on the UN's ceasefire proposal today), right now they have a financial crisis, and (some analysts say) that one reason for the economical crisis was the boycotts which started after the Iraq war. So yes, if by any chance fucking up with their economy can make them stop supplying Israel.. then i am all for it.

Secondly.. Over 20 years the number of causalities from Hamas's bombs are nothing in comparison to ONE day of bombing in Gaza.. So it is disproportionate (not just fire for fire!).. and it is not just.. and if boycotting American products is going to make us feel any better about it, then so be it.

Okay wow this is getting intense. First of all I never got the "Boycott" idea and I tried it but failed miserably. BUT I think it makes a big different it is true that boycotting may not make Israel or America stop whatever they're doing but it will spread awareness. First it may shake the economy of both Israel and America and as we know we are in an economic crisis and everyone, especially America would love to have a stable economy. Second with the boycotting it shows that people are not silent idiots and that they have an opinion and boycotting shows that they are against the massacre in Gaza. Like for example law sama7 allah a country terrorized my own home I will certainly hate if muslim and arab countries improve the economy of the enemy who is killing innocent people on my land. I will also like to point out that we are donating but we feel that it isn't enough we are trying to do everything we can! At least we are showing that we are supporting Gaza. And about the protests! They shouldn't STOP and I think that it is amazing that a lot of people are protesting! I think it shows how WRONG Israel is and it will soon make all the WORLD stop sleeping and see what Israel is doing! Protests makes palestinians feel that they are not alone! That everyone in the world is trying their best to spread awareness and support them by all means! Plus the protests will make the American government ashamed and embarrassed why would people protest? Of course because something is going terribly wrong!!

Oh and a lot of people do not watch the news or read the newspapers they might've not found out what happened in Gaza without the boycotting and protests.

Ok so I think I'm done hhehe Fastidious Babe please read my newest post it is an easy way to donate for the people in Gaza!

Those who belittle acts of solidarity like protests or boycotts: take your opinions to the government and let them hear you. Don't beat your chest and roar at bloggers or citizens who are as helpless as you are.
Where's your so-called sense of reason: we're civilians ourselves, not combatants.
Protests are not meaningless as long as they're followed by donations(money and blood) and our prayers.
It's the least we can do, but it doesn't make us simply all talk.
If you got the energy to rant, I say its more fruitful spent on gathering more donations.

Fastidious Babe said...

F: will do :)

eshda3wa: sure does..

Unruhe: my point exactly.
