Detailed Boycott List

There are three kinds of goods or services which appear on various
boycott lists:
1) settlement products marked "Made in Israel" (such as the items to be
found on the shelves of department stores, Selfridges and Harrods: Achva
Halva from Barkan Industrial Zone on the West Bank, Ahava toiletries from
Mitsepe Shalem, West Bank; Beigal and Beigal pretzels from Barkan IZ,
West Bank; and Yarden Wines from Katzrin, Golan Heights).

2) general exports marked "Made in Israel " (examples: Carmel foodstuffs;

Co-op own brand and other tinned fruit, flowers, organic herbs, fruit and

3) goods and services which are manufactured or supplied by companies

who invest heavily in Israel. (Examples: America OnLine, Intel, Disney,
Johnson and Johnson, Kimberley Clarke, the Kraft Group)

If you are organising picketing please write to the store or company asking
them for their current buying policy and giving them notice that you intend
to picket their premises.

The following list is not comprehensive: it has been assembled from lots of
other lists which themselves can never be absolutely up-to-date. However
the items and companies listed form a basis for choosing where to focus
our attention.
You are invited to do your own research and send details of products,
importers, or retailers etc. for inclusion. (Email us at ????????????)

Arms : (see
< for details of Arms Embargo
Since the General Armistice Agreements were signed in 1949, Israel has
maintained an aggressive policy of military attacks across the Armistice
Demarcation Lines, repeatedly invading territories of neighbouring Arab
States. Israel has constantly harassed UN observers and other personnel
stationed along the Armistice Demarcation Lines: it assassinated the first
UN Mediator and his military aide; it has detained some truce observers; it
has militarily occupied and illegally searched the HQ of UN personnel; and
it has boycotted meetings of the Mixed Armistice Commissions.
Israel is the only country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons, the
only country in the ME that refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation
treaty and bars international inspections from its sites.
Under Article 2 of the Euro-Israel Association Agreement (which calls for
respect for human rights), the European Union has the right to invoke
sanctions to protect Palestinians from violence.
Lockheed Martin has reached agreement with the government of Israel to
supply its air force with more than 52 additional F-16 fighters for around
$2 billion between 2006 and 2009. LM are in AWE Aldermaston

10 Charter Place, High Street, Egham Surrey, TW9EA
01784 439900
Enquiries were referred on to their PR firm PR Revolver: 020 7251 5599
Background: New Yorkers for a Just Middle East Peace (NYJMEP) wrote to
Perry Odak, former Ben and Jerry CEO about an article published in the
June 8, 1998 edition of the Hebrew newspaper Ha’aretz. According to the
article, "the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream company yesterday [i.e. June 7,
1998] concluded an agreement with the Mei Eden [Eden Springs] mineral
water company, to use only Mei Eden in its sorbet products."
Their concern was based upon the fact that the Eden Springs company is
located in Katzrin in the Golan Heights. "The fact that the agreement is
apparently with a major spring water company adds insult to injury: Israel
is notorious for its expropriation of water resources, including from the
Golan Heights, at the expense of the occupied Arab population."
The NYJMEP letter can be viewed in full at a website thoughtfully provided
by a pro-Israeli "Veto the Boycott" group at
Perry Odak has since resigned and B&J have sold most of their shares to
Unilever. Ben & Jerry still try to maintain their reputation for ethical
trading. But gestures such as giving money to the Mumia Campaign are
history. The Israeli licensee ended up cancelling its contract with the water
company. But we have written to Ben and Jerry to invite them to provide
us with up-to-date information about their supplies. Their email address
Israel allots 85% of the water resources in the occupied territories for
Israelis and the remaining 15% is divided among all Palestinians in the
territories. In Hebron 85% of the water is given to about 500 settlers,
while 15% must be divided among Hebron’s 120,000 Palestinians.
Ben and Jerry have not answered our recent request for up-to-date
information about where the water comes from for their sorbets.
Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream: Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield were the
founders of this ice cream company.. they were Jewish..

From the Co-op’s website:
"There is growing awareness of the exploitation of workers in developing
countries. Ethical Trading (or Sound Sourcing) is a way of tackling this
problem in the context of everyday grocery products. Unlike Fairtrade,
Ethical Trading primarily directs its efforts at improving the conditions of
employees, rather than independent and marginalised growers, and it
works with employers to ensure basic human and labour rights, develop
safe and decent working conditions, and improve general standards of
Values: "In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe
in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring
for others."

including Carmel mangoes and own brand tinned grapefruit.

"Israel is the world’s largest exporter of precious stones" - International
Jerusalem Post
July 20, 2001
The Israeli diamond industry was started in the 30s and according to the
Jerusalem Post (ibid) "helped build the young state’s economy." Ramat
Gan, just outside Tel Aviv, is home to the biggest diamond exchange on
the globe. Israel exports 2.5 million carats of diamonds every year. The
raw gems are claimed to originate in South Africa and India and are
polished and set in Israel in a business which makes up a huge one-third
of Israel’s total exports. European diamond traders beef up the guest-list
at Israel’s beach hotels.
De Beers control the world market in uncut diamonds and decide the
international price.
African human rights groups have called for "conflict diamond"
campaigners to direct their energy into helping diamond producing African
states to establish diamond processing and cutting factories locally, which
would greatly assist African economies.
The following is from:
Movement Against Conflict Diamonds Strengthening (ibid) by Julia M.
"In an emergency meeting, the Board of Directors of the Israel Diamond
Exchange decided Sunday to revoke the membership of any diamantaire
who knowingly trades in conflict diamonds benefiting rebel movements in
Angola, Sierra Leone and the Congo. Once expelled from the exchange, a
diamantaire is automatically expelled from all 23 diamond exchanges
around the world."
"Shmuel Schnitzer, president of the Israel Diamond Exchange, issued a call
to the heads of all diamond exchanges to adopt this decision to bring a
halt to the trade of conflict diamonds. Schnitzer urged the industry to
trade only diamonds originating from official government sources. The
board said its position concurs with that of World Federation of Diamond
Bourses President Itzhak Forem, whose group will meet in July and issue
an official decision.
"The Israel Diamond Exchange's decision is a follow-up to its agreement to
join the United Nations and human rights groups in the struggle against
the illegal uses of diamonds. ..."
The hypocrisy of the Israeli Diamond Institute in condemning the purchase
of "conflict diamonds" is revealed in a statement issued by Moshe
Schnitzer, Chairman of the Institute:
"This is a matter of conscience, and our standpoint is clear: there is no
place in Israel for diamonds paid for in human suffering and death."
"Fine Words from the Israel Diamond Industry, But What are they really
doing?", British group, Global Witness, asked in a press release dated 24th
March, 2000:
"The recent admission by Ran Cohen, Israel's Minister of Trade and
Industry, that conflict diamonds are causes of human suffering around the
world is a belated admission of Israel's failure to constructively tackle the
issue of conflict diamonds. This is at a stage when other key elements of
the diamond industry have finally responded to severe criticisms and are
actively searching for some potential solutions. It is to be welcomed that
the government of Israel will 'investigate ways in which Israel can help
fight the war against illicit diamond buying.
"Global Witness would like to know how the Israeli government and
diamond industry intends to 'investigate' ways in which to help. 'Will the
government of Israel and the Israel Diamond Institute publicly state what
controls and measures they intend to put in place to ensure that conflict
diamonds will no longer enter into Israel, thus protecting the long term
future of the Israeli diamond industry," said Alex Yearsley of Global

Finance - see also, Israel-Britain Business Council
The financial sector must come under close scrutiny both at the level of
inter-governmental arrangements and dealings on the London Stock
Exchange. During the 2001 British general election, while total silence was
maintained on the subject of Israel’s spiralling aggression, the Labour
Party took out a full page advertisement in the "Jewish Chronicle" listing
"Labour’s achievements":
"Trade between Britain and Israel has grown incredibly by 20 per cent,
while there have been 34 official trade missions to Israel from the UK since
1997. The unique BRITECH agreement signed by Trade Secretary Stephen
Byers means there is now a £15.5 million joint fund to encourage co-
operation between British and Israeli hi-tech industries in research and
development for their own benefit."
The same issue of the Jewish Chronicle (May 18th 2001) reported:
"Britain is to allocate £1 million to promote trade, investment and joint
projects with Israel, the British ambassador to Israel, Francis Cornish, told
the Israel-Britain Business Council in Jerusalem this week...
"More than 60 Lloyds brokers and underwriters as well as 30 UK insurance
company representatives attended the Lloyds market insurance conference
in Tel Aviv....meanwhile, seven British companies, representing the
insurance, mobile telecommunications and construction industries, were
among participants in a Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry trade
mission to Israel over the course of the week."
For those who want to study the Israeli finance sector in detail, "The
International Jerusalem Post" carries financial and hi-tech news from
Israel, on sale in the UK (£1.50) or visit
"Flowers remain the highest value crop at $188m, with vegetables valued
at $161m."
The Grocer (ibid)
"With three hundred sunny days a year, Israel has become the source of
new pot plants, propagation material and flower bulbs.." Agrexco wesite - Besides Agrexco, Israeli
exporters of flowers include: Bickel Flowers Ltd, Fields of Israel Ltd and
Ginsberg Flowers.

To sign a letter asking Intel Corporation to dis-invest from Israel go to:


The Israeli business community evidently had great plans for cashing in on
the "peace dividend" after Palestinian resistance had been completely
crushed by the Oslo process.
From their self-promoting website: <
[One of the more bizarre business entries is for Beni Tal - an Israeli
security company which has projects throughout the world, including
"military and civil weapon training". They have proudly posted a picture of
their body-guards "securing the Late P.M. Yitzhak Rabin.".
"Israel has one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic economies in the
industrialised world. In 1996:
Economic growth rose to 4.4% - The GDP rose to $95 billion - Income per
capita was about $16,750 -
The inflation rate fell to 10.6% - The unemployment rate fell to 6.7% -
Israel's economy is based on a highly skilled work-force, well-developed
science and high-tech-based industries and a sophisticated financial
infrastructure. Its growth is widely predicted to be sustainable at a level of
about 6% a year until at least the end of the century. This growth is being
driven by three factors: the successful integration of about 750,000 highly
qualified immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Israel's position at the
cutting edge of science and high-tech, and the peace process. Israel has
free-trade agreements with the European Union, the United States and
EFTA. It is now rapidly expanding economic contacts with other Middle
East states, from North Africa to the Gulf, as well as with the nations of
Asia, including Japan, China, India, South Korea and Vietnam, which had
been closed to Israel until recently."
"The Israel-Britain Business Council is an ambitious initiative, undertaken
to expand trade and economic co-operation between Britain and Israel.
"Established in 1995, joint Councils were created in both countries under
the co- chairmanship of Sir Richard Greenbury, Chairman of Marks and
Spencer and Dan Propper, Chairman of the Osem Group of Companies.
"The Council in each country is made up of 8-10 executives who are of the
highest calibre in both the corporations they represent and their individual
Objectives of IBBC The prime objective of the IBBC is to accelerate the
growth of the two- way trade between Israel and Britain . The Councils
have established working groups who have identified six major sectors to
focus their activities on finance, health Care, education, high tech and
R&D, infrastructure and tourism. The High Tech Working Group, chaired by
Mr Edgar Miller, has members from industry and research interests in both
Israel and the UK The joint working groups have developed their own
plans for initiatives and a series of missions, seminars, conferences and
one to one business meetings have been designed to facilitate the aims
and objectives of the Council. Two Executives have been seconded by two
companies to the project under the Government's Export Promotion
initiative. Brian Cohen, ex Marks and Spencer has been appointed as
Director General, with the role of co-ordinating the working group plans,
and David Sharp, GEC/Marconi, to the High Tech working group. Council
Members Sir Richard Greenbury, Chairman, Marks & Spencer Sir Martin
Jacomb, Chairman, Prudential Corp Michael Lester, Vice Chairman, GEC
Lord Sterling, Chairman, P & O Lord Young, Chairman, Young Associates
Sir Trevor Chinn, Chairman, Lex Service David Lewis, Chairman, Lewis
Trust Group Richard Giordano, Chairman, British Gas Andrew Stone, joint
managing director of Marks & Spencer, is adviser to the British Delegation
Lord Stone of Blackheath, British Director-General, IBBC
Considerable success was achieved in 1996 when the Council supported an
Education Seminar in Tel Aviv, a visit by Robin Cook, a Finance Conference
in London and Edinburgh and an inward R&D mission.
"In January of 1997, in conjunction with BOTGI, the IBBC led a major
British Delegation to Israel's first international Telecommunications
Exhibition. Other 1997 activities included a joint visit to Israel for the four
major UK pharmaceutical companies to pursue joint ventures, a mission to
the UK of 18 Israeli Technological Incubator Companies, a seminar on the
National Health Service in Israel, an Insurance Conference and an Invest
in Britain Conference."

Israel gets $2.76 billion as US Senate passes foreign aid bill

< : "The United States Senate
overwhelmingly passed a $15.6 billion bill for foreign aid on Wednesday,
including $2.76 billion in assistance for Israel, more than any other
country. Egypt was second, and will receive a total of
$1.955 billion. U.S. law-makers said the move would give the Bush
administration a tool to help fight terrorism through diplomacy.
"At the request of Secretary of State Colin Powell, senators dropped an
amendment to require the White House to report on the Palestine
Liberation Organization's compliance with its commitment to renounce
terrorism and
violence. Powell said that requirement could have hampered efforts to
forge an international alliance against terrorism..
"The bill, which had stalled for several weeks in a partisan dispute over
judicial nominations, cleared the Democratic-led Senate 96-2 without
significant amendments. It was written well before the Sept. 11 attacks on
Washington and New York, but language was added to bar aid to countries
that harbour or help finance individuals or organizations responsible for
the hijacked airline strikes that killed some 5,000 people."
