New Delhi, 16 July-2014(Indilens Web Team): This is the only best way to defeat Israel. Hit them in the soft corner via their economy. Denouncing the Israeli attacks on Palestinian people in Gaza, the business community in Kashmir and other parts of the nation have decided to boycott sale and purchase of all Israeli products and appealed people not to consume these goods.
The decision of business community has come after the wanton killings of Palestinian people including women and children by Israeli forces by dropping deadly bombs in the residential localities of Gaza. Chairman, Kashmir Economic Alliance, Muhammad Yaseen Khan told Greater Kashmir that the alliance has already conveyed the decision to all of its constituent members.
General Secretary, Kashmir Trader and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF), Bashir Ahmad echoed similar views:” Our hearts have been bruised by the killing of innocent people in Palestine. But the only tool to condemn such atrocious killings in our hands is to boycott all Israeli products,” he said, adding that the members of the federation have already been asked to stop dealing in Israeli products.
President, Kashmir Traders Federation (KTF), Jan Muhammad Koul said for the cause of humanity business community and traders in Kashmir have decided to boycott trade of products manufactured in Israel.
“Muslim community round the globe should wake up from the slumber and register strong protests against Israel. They are killing innocent people in Gaza, every day we come across the heart-rending pictures of innocent children being killed by Israeli soldiers,” he said.
Koul said that the message has already been conveyed to the traders in the Valley to shun business of products manufactured in Israel.
He said: “We have come up with a list of products/brands being supplied by Israel.”
On the other hand , Since 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. Here are 10 brands that BDS supporters have urged others to boycott, not to mention thousands of other products that contain or use Israeli-developed technology.
