All Muslims must boycott the Zionist products because the Zionist capitalists are supporting and financing the brutal israeli regime of terror so that it can attack and destroy civilian targets in Palestine and terrorize and massacre innocent Palestinian people:

Who do you Muslims support: Allah the All-Merciful or the brutal barbaric Zionists?

 

Do you know that the brutal israeli regime of terror is attacking, invading, occupying Palestine and the immoral brutal barbaric Zionist terrorists are carrying out the israelization of Palestine. And they are torturing, raping, murdering or massacring our innocent Muslim sisters and brothers in Islam in Palestine. You Muslims have watched so many videos etc that show how the brutal and barbaric Zionists molest, rape, murder or massacre our Muslim sisters and brothers in Palestine. How can some of you Muslims be silent in the face of the brutal israeli genocide of Palestinian people? Please remember that silence means complicity. You will be questioned by Allah on the Day of Judgement.

 

It is our duty as a Muslim to defend Palestine etc and protect our Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine etc by fighting against the brutal Zionist terrorists and destroying the brutal and barbaric israeli regime of terror and the Zionist-Nazi-fascist forces.

 

The martyr operations is the greatest of all sorts of Jihad in the Cause of Allah. A martyr operation is carried out by a person who sacrifices himself, deeming his life less value than striving in the Cause of Allah, in the cause of restoring the land and preserving the dignity. To such a valorous attitude applies the following Qur’anic verse: “And of mankind is he who would sell himself, seeking the pleasure of Allah; and Allah hath compassion on (His) bondmen.” (Al-Baqarah: 207)

JIHAD Against the Enemies of Islam

 

It is our duty as a Muslim to support, protect and finance Muslims who are fighting against the enemies of Islam, protect and defend Muslim countries and overthrow all the hypocritical regimes that cooperate or conspire with the enemies of Islam to terrorize Muslims etc.

 

The Quran says:

 

"And those who strive (jihad) in Our (cause), We will certainly guide them to our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right." (Al-`Ankabut: 69)

 

"Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur'an)." (Al-Furqan: 52)

 

Let us read together the following verse of the Glorious Quran (which means): “Fight in the cause of Allaah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allaah loves not transgressors.” [Quran 2:190]

Islam ordered for Jihaad in the three situations as follows:

 

1- Defense of life, property and national boundaries

This concept is based on the verse of the Glorious Quran (which means): “Fight in the cause of Allaah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allaah loves not transgressors.” [Quran 2: 190]

 

2- Removing oppression and preserving the just rights of the oppressed people.

 

This concept is based on the verse of the Glorious Quran, (which means): “And why should you not fight in the cause of Allaah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated people (and oppressed)? Men, women, and children, whose cry is: ‘Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect; and raise for us from You one who will help!’”[Quran 4:75]

 

3-Defence of Faith and Religion

 

A fighter must purify his intention to please Allaah Almighty alone and he must have a sound understanding that he is not participating in this Jihaad for any unfair reasons. The fighters must realize that they are taking part in such a Jihaad in order to spread the Word of Allaah Almighty. This concept is based on the verse of the Glorious Quran, (which means) : “And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevails justice and faith in Allaah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allaah does see all that they do.” [Quran 8:39]

FATWA

 

The Jihad in the Cause of Allah against the Zionists who usurped the Palestinian lands and forcibly expelled the Palestinians from their own homes is an individual duty or Fard `Ayn on every Muslim who is capable of Jihad in Palestine and its neighboring Muslim countries.

 

The reason behind that is to render a humiliating defeat to the Zionists who usurped the blessed land. Thus, Jihad is an individual duty on Egyptians, Syrians, Jordanians, Lebanese as well as all Muslim Arabs and non-Arabs till the Jewish occupation is brought to a halt.

 

In this Jihad, every Muslim should play the role he is capable of. If a Muslim can not participate in actual fighting in the battlefield, he can financially back the fighters. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, is reported to have stated that “The one who equips the fighters is as if he contributed in the battlefield.”

 

If one does not have money to provide, then let him perform any other work that is so beneficial to the cause such as writing an article in a newspaper, staging a demonstration that condemns the occupation etc..

 

The Muslim should do his best in backing his fellow wronged Palestinians brothers and sisters. He must boycott all the israeli products in order to weaken the economy of the Zionists. Unfortunately, some Arab countries are plagued with normalizing relations with israel and they see nothing wrong in circulating the israeli products. Muslims of those countries as well as those living in majority non-Muslim countries should be aware of that and they should boycott the israeli products altogether.

 

Not only the israeli products that have to be boycotted, but the American products as well because the US is the prime supporter to the Zionists.

 

Finally, a Muslim should oftly implore Allah earnestly to grant his fellow Palestinian brothers victory in the near future, Insha’ Allah."

 

Allah Almighty knows best.

Assalamualikum dear Muslims,

 

Please read the following statements made by the brutal Zionist leaders:

 

David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff.

From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978:

 

"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population."

 

The influential israeli Rabbi Ovadia Yosef exclaimed during a sermon preceding the 2001 Passover holiday, :

 

"May the Holy Name visit retribution on the Arab heads, and cause their seed to be lost, and annihilate them." He added: "It is forbidden to have pity on them. We must give them missiles with relish, annihilate them. Evil ones, damnable ones." -- Source: Ha'aretz April 12, 2001.

 

David Ben Gurion, quoted in The Jewish Paradox, by Nahum Goldmann, Weidenfeld and Nicolson,

1978, p. 99:

 

"Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population."

 

Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, 'Begin and the "Beasts"', New Statesman, 25 June 1982:

 

"We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinian refugees] never do return."

David Goldman wrote:

 

"We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours."

 

The barbaric and sadistic words of the brutal Zionist leaders have convinced us Muslims that we Muslims must fight against the brutal and barbaric Zionist terrorists and Zionist criminals in order to save our innocent Palestinian brothers and sisters in Palestine. We must destroy the evil and barbaric israeli regime of terror and the sadistic and brutal Zionist-Nazi-Fascist forces. Only hypocrites and the enemies of Islam ask Palestinian people to recognize the right of the barbaric israeli regime of terror to rob Palestinian people of their land, home, farm, freedom, rights etc and terrorize and massacre Palestinian people.

 

Dear Sunni and Shia brothers and sisters... please unite and cooperate so that we can end the brutal israeli genocide of Palestinian people.

Dear Muslims and non-Muslims,

 

Please put you yourselves in the Palestinian shoes so that you can fully understand the suffering of Palestinian people:

 

1) How do you feel if the barbaric Zionists rob you of your land, home, freedom, rights etc and terrorize your family and drive you out of your own land?

 

2) How do you feel if the sadistic Zionists attack your home and murder your beloved sons and daughters and molest and rape your beloved wife?

 

3) How do you feel if the sadistic Zionists murder your children when they are on their way to their schools?

 

4) How do you feel if the sadistic Zionists detain you for a long time without trial and torture you mentally and physically so that you would to admit to crime that you have nothing to do with?

 

5) How do you feel if the sadistic Zionists starve you family for months?

 

6) How do you feel if the sadistic Zionists massacre your father and mother, brothers and sisters, relatives, friends etc in the Masjids in which they are praying?

 

7) How do you feel if your beloved mother, father, wife, daughters, sons, relatives, friends etc are murdered by the barbaric Zionists before you? And the sadistic Zionists are laughing and insulting them while murdering them.

 

Oh I have so many questions to ask you.............

 

Please see the pictures that may convince you that Zionists are the most barbaric, immoral, corrupt, and sadistics animals:

Any persons, who support, cooperate or conspire with the barbaric israeli regime of terror to destroy Masjids or demonize, persecute, attack, terrorize, starve or massacre Muslims and Islam, are the enemies of Islam:

 

israel Targets Gaza Masjids

 

By Ola Attallah, IOL Correspondent

 

Several Masjids were flatted in the israeli strikes.

 

GAZA CITY — Masjids across the Gaza Strip have become the latest target of the israeli military juggernaut, unleashed against the impoverished coastal enclave since Saturday.

 

"As if it was not enough for them to kill our people and children, the israelis are also destroying the houses of Allah," Abu Khalid, a Gaza resident, told IslamOnline(contact admin if its a beneficial link).

 

Two people were killed and scores wounded when israeli warplanes attacked a Masjid near Abu Khalid's house in western Gaza.

 

"We heard a big boom and saw a black cloud of smoke billowing into the sky," he recalled.

 

"We went out to see what happened and were dumbfounded to see the Masjid razed to the ground."

 

israeli warplanes blitzed a Masjid in Jabaliya early Monday.

 

Five girls of the same family, including a 14 month-old toddler, were killed overnight when israeli war jets pounded a Masjid near their home in the northern town of Jabaliya.

 

A third Masjid in the southern town of Khan Younis was also flattened after israeli aircraft bombed it out.

 

The massive israeli bombardment of targets in Gaza has killed at least 345 people, including 57 civilians, according to medics and UN figures.

 

At least 27 of the dead are children.

 

Crime

 

Gazans were infuriated by the israeli attacks on their Masjids.

 

"How dare they attack places of worship places," fumed a visibly moved Abu Rami, whose house was destroyed in an israeli attack.

 

"They shall answer to Allah the Almighty."

 

Abu Omar, a Masjid imam, could not believe himself.

 

"Why are they targeting Masjids? Are the Masjids being used to fire rockets?" he asked.

 

"Masjids are the houses of Allah and are only used for worship. Such attacks are the worst of crimes," he said angrily.

 

Wael Al-Zard, a preacher, lamented the silence of Arab and Muslim countries over the israeli onslaught.

 

"Do not the israeli attacks constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity?"

The Zionists may destroy Gaza but they cannot destroy the will of Palestinian people to liberate Palestine from the Zionists. The time will come for Muslim fighters to destroy the brutal israeli regime of terror and kill all the barbaric Zionist war criminals once and for all and overthrow all the Zionist-US puppet regimes.

Dear Muslims and non-Muslims,

 

Most of the Palestinian people have elected Hamas as the legitimate government of Palestine through a fair democratic election so the Hamas government has its right to govern, protect and defend Palestine and Palestinian people.

 

The highly hypocritical Europe, the barbaric US regime, the sadistic israeli regime of terror and the Zionist-US-puppet Fatah regime have exposed their own hypocrisy by robbing the Palestinian people of their right and overthrowing the Hamas government. The enemies of Islam are forcing the Palestinian people to recognize the right of the barbaric israeli regime of terror to invade Palestine and terrorize, massacre and rob Palestinian people of their right, freedom, land etc.

 

The Zionist leaders are exposing their own brutality, barbarity, corruption and immorality by promising the barbaric israelis (Zionists) that they will wage more wars against the innocent and defenseless Palestinian people during the most recent israeli election. They are going to shed more Palestinian blood and destroy more civilian targets in Palestine in order to establish the so-called Greater israel. They are worse than the Nazi and Fascist leaders.

 

The Greater israel comprises all of modern-day israel, the Palestinian Territories, and Lebanon, as well as large parts of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. The proportion of current Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey are also included in this territory. That means that the barbaric Zionists are going to invade more land, destroy more civilian targets and kill more innocent Muslims and non-Muslims in order to establish the Greater israel.

 

israeli results dismay Palestinians

 

"Any form of government as a result of these elections will not accept the two-state solution, they will not accept the agreements signed, they will continue with the settlements activities and the incursions and the attacks," Saeb Erekat, a senior Palestinian negotiator, told Al Jazeera.

 

The Hamas movement, which has de facto control of the Gaza Strip, said that israeli voters had elected "extremists".

 

"This shows that the Zionist voters clearly start choosing the one who is most extreme in his speech, the one who wants war with the Palestinians," Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas official, said.

 

"This troika, this trio of terrorism of Lieberman, Livni and Netanyahu, chose the dramatic development in israeli society towards terror."

French delegation confirms israel has committed war crimes in Gaza

[ 27/01/2009 - 06:27 PM ]

 

PARIS, (PIC)-- A French delegation visited Gaza last week affirmed that israel committed real war crimes in the Gaza Strip and called for the establishment of an international investigation committee in this regard and for the suspension of the European partnership agreement with israel.

 

The delegation which included MP Francis Wurz and mayor of Bagnolet city Marc Everbecq had visited Gaza on the 21st of this month.

 

In a conference held Monday by the delegation members in Paris, MP Wurz said that what the delegation saw did not look like effects of confrontation between two warring parties, but it was a massacre claimed the lives of hundreds of unarmed civilians in conjunction with the destruction of residential neighborhoods and the displacement of thousands of residents.

 

The lawmaker underlined that the delegation had an unwavering belief that israel committed war crimes in Gaza after they listened to several testimonies and obtained definitive evidence proving that the IOF troops executed dozens of Palestinian civilians and used white phosphorus against others.

 

The lawmaker noted that the perpetrators of such crimes can not in any way escape punishment, stressing the need to establish an international investigation committee leading to the prosecution of those involved in war crimes in the international criminal court regardless of their ranks or offices.

 

The lawmaker also revealed his intention to submit a report about the delegation's visit to Gaza to the speaker of the European parliament, pointing that a large number of the parliament members support the idea of suspending the partnership agreement between the European union and israel until it respects the international humanitarian law and accepts the implementation of relevant UN resolutions.

israeli gunboats hit northern Gaza

Sat, 14 Feb 2009 13:54:52 GMT

 

The israeli military has launched fresh attacks on the northern Gaza Strip using gunboats and warplanes in pounding the coastal region.

 

Witnesses said israeli gunboats attacked Al-Sudaniah region in the northern strip early Saturday morning after military jets struck two targets near a refugee camp overnight.

 

Despite a ceasefire after a three-week israeli onslaught on the densely-populated Gaza Strip in January, Tel Aviv continues its attacks on the beleaguered territory.

 

The all-out war which lasted 23 days claimed almost 1,400 Palestinian lives and left vast swathes of the besieged strip in ruins.

FATWA

 

Title: Gazans Died Under Their Houses: Martyrs?

 

Name of Questioner: Shahd - Canada

 

Question: Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. What is the ruling of the Palestinian people who died under the debris of their houses during the israeli bombardment? Are they considered martyrs? Do we perform ghusl for them and bury them in their clothes? Also, what is the ruling of the decayed or torn apart bodies if the washing is obligatory? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.

 

Date: 22/Jan/2009

 

Name of Mufti: `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, `Abdul-Majeed Subh

 

Topic: Jihad: Rulings & Regulations

 

Answer

 

Wa `alaykum as-salamu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

 

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

 

Dear sister, many thanks for this question which reveals your sincere heart and concerning about your fellow Muslims' conditions. We ask Almighty Allah to reward you and us all and strengthen our faith in Him.

 

The people of Gaza who died under the debris of their houses, during the barbaric israeli strikes, should be washed and funeral prayers should be performed for them. In sha’ Allah they will receive the reward of martyrs in the Hereafter. Thus, we ask Almighty Allah to give the degree of martyrdom to everyone who was killed in this israeli massacre.

 

In his response to your question, Sheikh `Abdul-Majeed Subh, a prominent Azharite scholar, states:

 

There are two categories of martyrs in Gaza as follows:

 

1. Those who fell as martyrs in the battlefield: They should not be washed or enshrouded and the funeral prayer should not be offered for them. They should be buried in their clothes. It was narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said regarding the martyrs who died on the Day of Uhud: “Bury them in their clothes.” (Ahmad)

 

The traces of their martyrdom have to be left on them, for it was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "By the One in Whose hand is my soul, no one is wounded for the sake of Allah – and Allah knows best who is wounded for His sake – but on the Day of Judgment he will come with a color like the color of blood and a fragrance like the fragrance of musk." (Al-Bukhari)

 

2. Civilians who died under the debris of their houses or because of their wounds due to the Zionist bombardment: They are given the reward of martyrdom in the Hereafter but the rules of martyrdom do not apply to them in this world.

 

Such people should be washed and the funeral prayer should be offered for them, but in the Hereafter they will have the reward of the martyrs, In sha’ Allah.

 

However, if it is difficult to wash some dead bodies due to decay or because the body is in pieces, we still have to perform dry ablution (tayammum) for them if it is possible.

 

Also, the eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, adds:

 

Almighty Allah says in the Qur'an, (Think not of those, who are slain in the way of Allah, as dead. Nay, they are living. With their Lord they have provision. Jubilant (are they) because of that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who have not joined them but are left behind: That there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. They rejoice because of favour from Allah and kindness, and that Allah wasteth not the wage of the believers.) (Aal `Imran 3: 169-171)

 

All of those who died because of the oppressive Zionist aggression are to be considered, as far as I believe, as martyrs. They were killed by the enemies of Almighty Allah in a fierce and brutal war. However, this is a general rule and we do not specify certain persons as martyrs, since Almighty Allah is the only One who knows those who died sincerely for His cause.

 

As far as Shari`ah is concerned, we should wash, enshroud, and perform funeral prayers for those who died under the debris of their houses.

W/salam brother,

 

The boycott has hit Coca-Cola in the middle east so hard that their sales are down 60%. This has created an opportunity for a Muslim alternative, ZamZam Cola of Iran, which is owned by the religious charity the Foundation of the Dispossessed, to take Coca-Colas share of the market. Zam Zam Cola is struggling to keep up with demand - it exceeded all expectations by selling four million cans in its first week.

 

Zam Zam Cola is now planning to expand by build factories in the gulf states, helping provide local employment. And for the first time even European countries like Denmark, are importing ZamZam Cola.

Does the boycott work?

 

Oh yes! For example, one of the companies hardest hit by the boycott is McDonalds.

 

McDonalds is a "major corporate partner" of the Jewish United Fund. In its own words, the Jewish United Fund "works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for israel; monitors and, when necessary, responds to media coverage of israel." Also, McDonalds chairman and CEO Jack M. Greenberg is a honorary director of the American-israel Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

 

McDonalds has 80 resturants in israel, providing employment to 3000 israelis.

 

McDonalds has just announced it is closing down its operation in the middle east due to loss of revenue as a direct result of the boycott (Oct 2002), and is replacing Greenberg as its chairman and CEO (Dec 2002). Since the launch of the boycott campaign, two of Jordan's six McDonald's franchises have closed due to lack of business. In Egypt, McDonald's decided to change its brand name to Manfoods this past March, in an attempt to dodge the boycott. It had no effect and Egyptian police forces were ordered to guard the entrances to McDonald's restaurants, after stone throwing incidents took place. A total of 175 restaurants will be closed at a loss of $350 million.

 

In the face of giants like McDonalds crumbling under the pressure of the boycott, smaller companies are weary of supporting israel and are steering clear in fear of being boycotted.

 

Amidst calls for a boycott of Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link), the internet bookstore Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) terminated its association with the Jerusalem Post (Nov 2002). It was revealed that the Jerusalem Post was donating its slice of the profits derived from the amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) partnership to israeli soldiers returning home after committing massacres and other abuses of human rights on the occupied territories.

 

Their advert, which appeared on most of their pages, read "Buy Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) & Support israel". Inundated with complaints, amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) severed its ties to the Jerusalem Post, demanding they remove all the adverts and vowed not to hand over any more profits.

 

Other companies, disgusted by israel's treatment of the Palestinians have themselves actively joined the boycott.

 

In May 2002 a US auto part export company refused to do business with israel.

 

In a reply to a purchase order from israel, John Harris, representing Texas Automotive Export wrote:

 

"We must inform you that Texas Export will not do business with israeli citizens at this time. We urge you to rein in your military and stop your oppression of the Palestinian people," the letter said. "Your country has lost the respect of the civilised world," it concluded.

 

The success of the boycott has so worried the US government and israel, both afraid that companies will abandon israel, that just last week the US threatened to fine US companies that take part in the boycott. The Department of Commerce has already issued more than $26m in fines and turned down export licences to those companies found supporting the boycott - so much for democracy and a right to choose who to do business with!

 

Can the boycott really effect the israeli economy?

 

israel's economy is on the verge of total collapse with no sign of recovery despite cash injections from uncle Sam. In Oct 2002 Sharon begged Washington for $10 billion in emergency aid. Inflation is sky rocketing - even the official figure is over 4 times the government target. VAT has just been raised as have fuel bills and all basic living costs like food and rents. Unemployment is soaring and salary cuts are the order of the day.

 

This has resulted in a series of crippling general strikes - the last one bringing the country to a standstill - flight in and out of israel had to be suspended, radio and television broadcasts stopped and health workers only dealt with emergencies. The streets are piling up with uncollected garbage.

 

Foreign investment, a life-line for the zionist state, has also dried up. Figures reveal that investors have lost $5 billion of the $6.5 billion invested in israel between 1999-2001. No one is prepared to invest any more.

 

The israeli government is so short of money that its cost cutting includes shutting down several embassies and consulates around the world!

 

At this critical time, the importance of the global boycott of israel and of the collaborating companies that give it its life-line cannot be overemphasised. israel is counting every penny - every penny matters - ensure yours don't go to israel!

Boycott of israel is starting to bite

 

Fri, 06 Mar 2009 02:34 UTC

 

Shir Hever, an economist with the Palestinian-israeli Alternative Information Center (AIC), notes that four recent articles in Ha'aretz' business section, The Marker, have fretted about the impact of boycotts, divestment & sanctions (BDS) on the israeli economy. Writes Hever in the AIC, March 1:

 

The growing protest against the atrocities committed by the israeli military in the Gaza Strip have begun to change something in the israeli political discourse, and the first indication of this can already be seen in the israeli economic media.

 

Although the israeli economic media doesn't concern itself with the moral dimension of the attacks on Gaza, the economic dimension of recent events have created a rising level of concern. In order to demonstrate this trend, here are summaries of four articles that appeared in the israeli The Marker magazine for economic news:

 

1. On 2 February, Guy Grimland warned about a growing phenomenon of boycott of israeli high-tech companies, and several israeli companies received letters from European and U.S. companies explaining that they cannot invest in israel for moral reasons.

 

2. In 3 February, Nehemia Strassler, one of israel's most famous economic correspondents, attacked the israeli Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, Eli Yishai, for calling on the israeli military to "destroy one hundred homes in Gaza for every rocket that falls in israel." Strassler had nothing to say about the Palestinians living in these homes or about the loss of life, but he warned:

 

"[the minister] doesn't even understand how the operation in Gaza hurts the economy. The horror sights on television and the words of politicians in Europe and Turkey change the behavior of consumers, businessmen and potential investors. Many European consumers boycott israeli products in practice. Intellectuals call for an economic war against us and to enforce an official and full consumer boycott.

 

Calls are heard in board meetings of economic corporations to boycott trade relations with israel. So far deals were cancelled with Turkey, the UK, Egypt and the Gulf States, and visits by economic delegations were cancelled. It's much easier now to switch providers while abandoning israeli providers. Many company boards are required to take wide considerations into account with regards to the good of society and the environment, and they put political considerations in that slot as well.

 

Of course there is an economic cost to severing diplomatic ties. Qatar cut its trade relations with israel, Venezuela and Bolivia cut diplomatic relations. Mauritania recalled its ambassador and the relations with Turkey worsened considerably - and this bad ambience seeps into the business sector decisions. Here, just yesterday Dudi Ovshitz, who grows peppers for export, said that 'there is a concealed boycott of israeli products in Europe.'"

 

3. On 6 February, Shuki Sadeh wrote about even more companies that have decided to boycott relations with israel. A Turkish company demanded that israeli companies sign a document condemning the israeli massacre in Gaza before they can offer their services for it. Sadeh quoted Naomi Klein's recent call for boycott, the 2005 Palestinian civil society call for boycott and israeli organizations that support the boycott and provide information for the global BDS movement. Sadeh's article also had concerned quotes by israeli businessmen who demanded government intervention to protect them from the growing boycott.

 

4. In 11 February, Ora Koren reported that the israeli business sectors feel the effects of the attack on Gaza. She reported that israeli businessmen in Turkey are hiding their names so that the local BDS organizations won't learn about their activities, and that the situation is even worse in the UK.

These four articles are a sign that there is a shift in the effectiveness of the BDS movement against israel, and that if the momentum is maintained and strengthened, israeli businessmen may decide to move their headquarters away from israel, or to begin to put pressure on the israeli government to begin respecting international law, and ending the occupation.

 

Hever has written extensively on the economy of the occupation & the usefulness of BDS tactics to fight it, available here.

Asalamu Alykum

How can we boycott banks? Do you have any idea or strategy?

 

Bro, this issue leans towards the prohibitation of riba.

 

The best way to avoid this is to instead of taking out a loan from a bank, just rent your house or car or whatever. However, if the person you are renting from is using your rent money to pay his loan repayments then you are still indirectly involved with riba, but this is the lesser riba. Instead of doing the greater sin, you choose the lesser sin. Ofcourse the most ideal option is just buying the item in full, but not many people can do that.

 

Also avoid Islamic banks, they say they are not using interest but they actually charge you more than what you borrowed off them, which is basically the same.

 

Inshallah i helped you. Boycotting banks is very very difficult especially in these times where everything revolves around paper money and the interest rate.
