10 Brands You’ll Have to Give Up If You’re Boycotting Israel


pampersSince 2005, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) has called on the international community to pressure Israel economically as “a form of civil resistance to Israeli occupation, colonialism, and apartheid.”

That would mean significant lifestyle changes for some consumers.

The ten brands that BDS supporters have urged others to boycott: Pampers, Victoria’s Secret, Volvo, Intel, Israeli hummus, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, Starbucks, McDonald’s, and SodaStream.

There are thousands of other products that contain or use Israeli-developed technology, including iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Skype, computer firewalls, and Microsoft XP.

Good luck to the boycotters! Read more.

  1. Yeah, let’s see if these folks would really inconvenience themselves for their warped “beliefs.” And maybe they should boycott Syria, Sudan and other countries while they’re at it. Oh, they don’t produce anything so there’s nothing to boycott. What a shame!

  2. There was talk some while ago ,among charedi european ba’ale batim ,to launch a charedi boycott

    1.to disprove the resho’im ym”sh,and show the public
    the impressive charedi clout
    2.to unify and fortify the (authentic) religious world

  3. If you boycott Israel these people will be living in a tent in the desert burning camel puck to keep warm. Oh but wait maybe the fabric that the tent was made up or the parts were also made up in Israel. Oh well at least the camel puck might have not been made in Israel????
