American pro-Israel activists are planning a massive national “Buy Israel Goods” campaign next Tuesday, Nov. 30th, and hope it will continue every day.
INN– The www.BuyIsraelGoods.org website includes a locator for finding stores in different areas of the country that carry Israeli products. Or just look at the logos on this page to know which products, stores, and services to patronize. These are the ones the Muslims are all over the media and YouTube telling you to boycott.
Previous “buy-cotts” in the United States and Canada have been highly successful, leaving many stores with empty shelves after buyers cleaned them out, purchasing wine, snacks, cosmetics and hundreds of other Israeli-made products.
One store that will get special attention is Ricky’s, which sells cosmetics manufactured by the Dead Sea-area Ahava firm, a favorite target of anti-Israel boycotters. This week, protesters blocked a store in London that sells Ahava products, which are produced at a Judean Desert kibbutz located in an area alongside the Dead Sea coast that was restored to Israel in the 1967 Six Day War. The campaign also will counter boycotts of other stores across the country, from local co-ops to Costco and Trader Joe’s.
Some of the stores that carry Israeli goods are: Walmart, Walgreens, Safeway, Sephora, TJ Mazz, Macy’s Bon Marche, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Brooks Brothers, JC Penney, Marshall’s, Lowe’s Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Sears, Target, Victoria’s Secret.
“Whenever a boycott is called, respond by purchasing the very Israeli goods that are being targeted and let store managers know they should keep them well stocked on the shelves,” they said in a statement. “We must defeat the boycotters who advocate destructive instead of constructive measures, who undermine hopes for peaceful co-existence, and whose only goal is to defame, cripple and damage Israel.”
They noted that the date of the campaign is one day after the 53rd anniversary of the United Nations Partition Resolution, “when the effort, against all odds, to restore the Jewish State was endorsed and recognized by the international community.”
