Israel Exports Surge 33%. Is the BDS movement responsible?

TEL AVIV, Feb 16 - Israel's economy grew at an annualised 4.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2009, its fastest pace in nearly two years and helped by a surge in exports...

Exports -- which account for nearly half of Israel's economic activity -- surged 33 percent in the fourth quarter while consumer spending rose 4.4 percent, according to the government's prior estimate of fourth-quarter data.

I can't help but wonder about the role the BDS movement has played in this. Did the BDS movement help fuel this growth by calling attention to the wide variety of Israeli consumer goods available in America?

Trader Joes Couscous was reported to "fly off the shelves" in some locations, as a direct result of the boycott publicity.

And in Toronto over 500 cases of Israeli wine were sold out in half an hour to the dismay of boycott organizer, who slunked away in embarrassment.

When we fight back, we win.
Support Democracy, buy Israeli.

And don't forget to shop at Victoria's Secret! That, too, supports the frilly occupying power!

Frills, lace, and all the little whisps of cloth, oh my!

And apparently Sabra hummus, from that settlement of Queens is on the boycott list.

So don't try Sabra supremely spicy hummus on a baguette, with slices of provolone and alfala sprouts.

No. No. No.
