Boycott gathers steam

A friend in Belgium forwards a list of companies and products that the European pro-Palestinian movement intends to boycott, because they are either owned by Jews or do business with Israel.

It is a rather extensive list. Boycotting these companies and their products might have been an extreme hardship, but fortunately, my very good friend Imam Abdullah Shazzbutt has helpfully suggested satisfactory substitutions. Anyone wishing to support the Palestinians should feel free to boycott EVERYTHING on this list, and must use the suggested substitutions instead.

It is recommended that you print out this list to keep with you at all times, then turn off your computers (and cell-phones) for the last time and switch over to the recommended 'rock with string' for any future technological needs.
If you are the type that believes in boycotting Israel, you will no doubt find the substitutes more than adequate. Good luck.

Shocking video: the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival - Exposed
This two-part short film about the 2009 SF Jewish Film Festival speaks more eloquently than a 100 blog posts about what is wrong with the Film Festival and how important it is that organized Jewish community act to ensure that something like this never happens again under Federation auspices.


...perhaps the most obscene is the treatment of the sole pro-Israel questioner, who was jeered, manhandled and bullied as he tried to, as some are fond of saying, speak truth to power.
