Damage to Israeli Companies exacts a heavy price


www.thetruthseeker.co.uk

This is another news item which will doubtless not appear in the Zionist controlled MSM.

Snippet:

The following article originally appeared in Hebrew on the Ynet website on August 25, 2010. It was translated by Dena Shunra.

It’s not only Norway: Israeli companies are boycotted by many countries for political reasons. Glass factory owner: the boycott has caused me enormous damage.

Yesterday’s decision by the Norwegian Oil Foundation to remove its investments from Africa-Israel and from Denia-Seabus, claiming that they are involved in illegal construction in the Territories is only the last of a long and growing line of decisions taken by governmental and private companies in Euro

It's wonderful to see these companies acting independently and boycotting trade with Israel....and most of all to see that this is really having an impact.

This is an excellent example of how the people can have an effect. No wonder Israeli gov has been worrying about how it is perceived in the world - because it is losing money - the ONLY thing, apart from power, which is of any interest at all to the murderous government.

For some time now I have boycotted any product which is made in Israel and am writing to my local supermarkets to protest against them selling Israeli goods. We are many, we can have an effect.

Did you know that Starbucks forwards part of its revenue to Israel as well? Everytime you buy a latte, you're putting a bullet in the IDF's rifles or funding israeli settlements in palestinian land.

Something to think about the next time you're ordering a caramel macchiato.

Not challenging you, just looking for a reference.

Strong taxpayer investments in Israel have great profit potential when future wars will bring new defense and weaponry contracts worth hundreds of billions. A great stimulus plan, and could provide thousands of new jobs in the defense industry.

We just have to find a way to "get the party started".

My thoughts exactly! Israel is going to get its war-machine funded, either through the tax payers or their corporations and most likely both. The American tax-payers will pay regardless but its a question of how much we have to pay because Israel is going to be funded, period. With that being said, I still support boycotts because at the very least, it sends a message.

No doubt, but that won't stop me boycotting Israeli goods! Interestingly, in another thread, I posted some info which is not appearing in MSM, of course, about protests by orthodox Jews against Israel.

I was really surprised to see in the video what some of them had on their placards and comments they made - one of which said 'dismantle Israel peacefully'. Another 'Palestinians have the right to all the land', 'Israel should not exist as a state'.

There is, seemingly fierce and loud Jewish opposition to Zionism and Israel that we never get to hear about, so I will point those who yell 'anti-semite' in that direction, lol!

According to these guys you pay a tax to the Those guys on most of the stuff you eat...
cost passed on to the consumer of course.
If true
guess Ill go check some labels to see.


[How The Kosher Tax Operates] The Union of Orthodox Rabbis which issues the (U) symbol controls 80% of the Kosher certification business. They employ some 300 Rabbis who travel nation-wide inspecting food processing plants. First, the company must pay an annual fee for the use of the copyright symbol the (U) or (K) or a version thereof. Second, the company must pay a separate heavy fee each time a team of Rabbis shows up to inspect their plant (Certain meat packers are required to hire Rabbis full time at extravagant salaries). Third, the company must pay these fees over and over again for each different product they make. Thus, General Foods pays dozens of separate fees. Also, each sub-contracting company which provides any type of ingredient which goes into the finished product must also pay separate fees to the visiting Rabbis . Sometimes a single product may eventually be taxed as many as a dozen times right down the line before it reaches you the consumer! Last, but not least, these fees must be paid annually and they are increased each year. Only by increasing the public awareness of the Kosher Food Tax and doing our best to refrain from purchasing products with the K or U symbols, can we begin to end this outrage being perpetrated upon our people. With the purchasing power of the dollar less all the time, we cannot afford this outrage to continue unchecked.

I have heard about the "Kosher Tax" and it is in fact true, though not really a tax technically. It does however equate to the same purpose.

In fact, Snopes tries to disprove this and this is why Snopes has lost credability from me. I know for a fact that different companies have to pay certain Rabbis in order for these Rabbis to certify that the food is kosher. I also know that much of that money goes to pro-Zionist charities and funds, among other things.

Furthermore, I also know that Jewish families (some, not all), make sure that foods are labled kosher before buying them (I believe it is a "k" in a circle, or something similar).

With that being said, it gets past along to the customer in an indirect way, as opposed to how taxes would affect us. It's technically different, though the end results are the same, as far as how it affects us all.

Disclaimer: I'm talking from the top of my head and have not researched this, rather I'm just going from my own experience.

Darn you as I am all about the bean!!!
Good thing I have another brand that I normally buy as it is a lot more affordable than starbucks, but I will keep this in mind next time I buy a coffee outside of my house.

here is a list of companies that support israel finiancally and help israeli snipers blow palestinian childrens heads off : general electric, home depot, starbucks, mcdonalds, coca cola, estee lauder, danone, johnson and johnson, nokia, nestle, timberland, sara lee, ibm and intel. taken from various websits. basically help your local hardware store out and buy as much as possible from them. drink pepsi and eat burger king. use a sony phone. starbucks sucks and is for tools. better yet, eat home cooked meals and drink freshly squeezed orange juice.

Yeah, you and I both pay these "fees"..

Makes me feel really good when I have a plantain and sumac salad while walking through the bush.
Followed by blackberries and a road apple
and a bicycle ride

The symbols are on the cans I just checked.

I understand snopes has been caught out on a few issues...

At least here at ATS its all understood discernment is the key word and we all know it.

Our taxes go to all sorts of weird stuff, and I know if I had my way I would tax all of the churches...
I wonder if those Guys pay tax on this money that the Rabbis get?
If not, that would be a double wammy.

To be fair, it isn't just Israel that deserves a boycot, there are a lot of bad things underlying our lifestyle, that if widely known, would turn some folks right off Im sure, but we all turn a blind eye to many things...

man you beat me to it , arrrrrghhhh
why did i have to read all posts


yes you are right , it might satisfy those who take action but sadly at the end of the day , month , or year they will get their compensation from the tax payers , how sad , you can not control what you pay for the government , but anyway its a good thing to see people take action.

i saw them with my own eyes about two months ago and took pictures, lots of them , that was in london high street Kensington , hundreds of jews were there with those signs.

i wasnt surprised because i have seen them on the internet lots of times , but this one was special because it was in front of me.

Urgh. It took about two seconds for me to have that cringing thought as well. It's probably hurting individual and families more than it's going to hurt the Isreali government.
