Boycott Israel Campaign

Posted in Religion at 12:53 am by egalitaria

An interesting site that has ramifications on marketers, brand and product development, international relations around the world:

Boycott Israel Campaign, that calls on the boycotting on hundreds of brands, amongst the list are included the following:

  • Banana Republic
  • Biotherm
  • Disney
  • Calvin Klein
  • Schweppes
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Kotex

And the list goes on! Imagine the impact when the forces get together and truly decide to abandon these products. Islamisation and globalisation: when the two meet, it gets ugly.

    wah my beloved Maggi Mee and Nescafe included!!!

    slightly off another tangen…. I was troubled (but not surprised) when I was informed of many Christians (even leaders) who unthinkingly give unqualified support to Israel because they believe Israel is God’s chosen nation and therefore untouchable and above critique.

    Perhaps we need to sit and pause … read the Old testament passages in context, clarify what a Christ-centred theology means in relation to Israel (lots of we are neither Jew or Gentile passages right? to start with), … again lots of work that needs to be done.

    in short, we need to be careful of giving unqualified allegience to any nation or empire. This has multiple applications which we can talk about another day.
