Kiss my BDS. Israeli Agricultural exports rise 10.5% in 2010

Kiss My BDS
Hows that boycott going, btw?

Israel's fresh agricultural exports rose 10.5% in 2010 compared to 2009, totaling $1.359 billion, reports.
Citrus exports were up 24.7% to $173 million; animal product exports were up 16.8%; and exports of non-citrus fruits were up by 13.4% at a total value of $222 million.
Exports of cotton and other field crops totaled $88 million, an increase of 29.9%. Vegetable, potato, and melon exports saw a more modest increase of 6.4% compared to 2009 for a total of $537 million.

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Orit Noked said that the agricultural export figures were proof of the "strength and stability of Israeli agriculture," despite the problems of drought and rising water costs.
Yeah, that BDS movement is just going gangbusters.

I'm sure you're aware of this but I wanted to highlight the PACBI campaign against the Israel Philharmonic Symphony. They plan to disrupt the Davies Hall concert on Feb. 27-28th. Time to mobilize your troops.

Thanks, Bella. This is part of a nationwide campaign, orchestrated by the PACBI (nothing grassroots about it at all)
