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 vegetables). 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.

Apax Partners & Co sponsored Israel’s 50th birthday celebration. Arms : (see www.palestinecampaign.org <http://www.palestinecampaign.org for details of Arms Embargo campaign.) 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.

Ben and Jerry’s Homemade Holdings 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 www.yerushalayim.net/organizations/veto/bj.htm 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 is: firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com 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.

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 living."

Diamonds "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. Duncan "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 Witness.

The unique BRITECH agreement signed by Trade Secretary Stephen Byers means there is now a £15.5 million joint fund to encourage cooperation 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."

Gaia House, West Ogwell, Devon TQ12 6EN (Buddhist Retreats) - Gaia House newsletter advertises retreats in "the raw beauty of the Negev." A disappointed visitor to Gaia has pointed out to them that the traditional inhabitants’ semi-nomadic lifestyle has been all but destroyed. They are confined to arid reserves or soulless towns, quaintly portrayed for the purposes of tourism, their calls for human rights consistently rejected. "Bedouin settlements in the Negev, no matter how large, are treated as illegal. Fruit, olive trees and crops planted by Bedouin in ancestral land are regularly uprooted. Goats and sheep grazing..confiscated..houses demolished...financial aid, mainly from overseas, is readily available for the new kibbutzim and moshavim in the Negev, but there are no similar funds available to the Negev Bedouin."

To sign a letter asking Intel Corporation to dis-invest from Israel go to: http://al-awda.org/campaign/intel-letter.htm ISRAEL-BRITAIN BUSINESS COUNCIL 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: www.ibbc.org <http://www.ibbc.org [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 capabilities. 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 From http://www.haaretzdaily.com>Haaretz <http://www.haaretzdaily.com : "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."
