Olympia Food Co-Op Boycotts Israeli Goods, Gaza Mall Doesn't

Yesterday, The Independent visited the new Gaza mall and discovered something that should have movers and shakers in the boycott-divestment-sanctions movement (BDS) scratching their heads:

The difference is that most consumer goods were previously smuggled through the tunnels from Egypt – whereas the mall's managers say 90 percent of its new stock is imported from Israel.

How does that square with the Olympia Food Co-op's boycott of Israeli products?

Sounds like the co-op and its Facebook supporters are acting more Palestinian than the Palestinians.

Comments

This particular boycott used information obtained from known anti semitic sources to justify their actions. The "tear down the wall" crowd never mentions the suicide bomber nor numerous other countries that have built walls, including the U.S. to keep out unwanted intrusions. To compare Israels actions as violating the rights of the Palestinians is simply ignorance of the facts.
