Boycott Israel? You Should Be Ashamed

Since its inception, the State of Israel has been a valued friend to the United States. Israel is the one genuine democracy in the Middle East—a tiny country that shares American values yet is surrounded on all sides by enemies. Why single out Israel? Why not suggest boycotting products from Iran, from Syria? Are Chinese products boycotted because of China’s Tibet policies? This proposed boycott by a few members of the Park Slope Food Co-Op against products produced by innocent Israelis is a thinly veiled anti-Semitic attack. The message is ‘Don't Buy from Jews.’”
