I was in Tescos yesterday and was shocked to see how much produce in the fruit/veg dept was from Israel. How about starting a Boycott Tesco campaign?
The Israelis need it

Is their economy pumped up by American money though and other industries? Agriculture must be a massive part of it though. The Americans can't be giving the No racist incitement thanks. -- Audi Mod too much money now with the state they are in.

I have absolutely no idea how to post something as a pdf but here's a letter....


Dear manager,

As I am sure you are aware, Israel is currently in a conflict with the Palestinian people in Gaza. This conflict has resulted in over 1,000 deaths of Palestinian civilians in less than 20 days. That is on average 50 people a day, many of them women and children.

They have been using cluster bombs, white phosporus and sheer terrror to crush and destroy innocent people.

I am shocked and horrified to see that your store is selling Israeli fruit and vegetables and therefore supporting this regime.

It is because of this that I have chosen to no longer shop in your store until this is rectified. I will also be encouraging all my friends and family to do the same.

Regards
Etc

That's good. A photograph too might help to explain to them why people feel so strongly.

I used to know how to make a pdf. and put it on a thread, but I've forgotten. Have you time to link to the instructions Auditor #9 ? I would do up a letter with a photo then, or floatingingalway could.

Pat Kenny just said that an unconfirmed report is on the wires that the U.N. HQ in Gaza has been hit by White Phosphorus bombs. Half of the Israeli nation should be relocated to The Hague if true.

Or the U.N. properly white phosphorus bombed and put out of its useless misery once and for all.
Here is the latest on that - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article5521925.ece

PostSubject: US made phosphorus bombs used in Gaza   Thu Jan 15, 2009 2:15 pm

The TImes site is very informative:

Quote :
Human Rights Watch said it was sure Israel had used white phosphorus. “The use of white phosphorus in densely populated areas of Gaza violates the requirement under international humanitarian law to take all feasible precautions to avoid civilian injury and loss of life,” it said.

Further research by The Times into the type of US-made shells being fired by Israeli gunners on the border with Gaza uncovered additional evidence that the light blue munitions, known as M825A1s, are carriers of white phosphorus, impregnated in more than 100 felt wedges.

The lot number – PB-91J011-002A – visible in a photograph published by The Times last week indicates that the shells being used by the IDF were assembled in September 1991 at Pine Bluff arsenal in America, where all US white phosphorus munitions are reportedly made. The contractors are Chamberlain Manufacturing [metal parts only], General Dynamics, and Ordnance and Tactical Systems.

"A small phosphorus bomb burn can cause cardiac problems leading to death within a few days" (link posted previously).

The same Times site says that the Israeli air force bombed a graveyard yesterday in which victims of the bombing had been buried.

I can do that but only on the main home computer. Going for lunch at 1, need to leave here in 20 minutes, so don't know if I could get it done before then. Could manage it by mid afternoon though. Do you just want a pdf people can download with that letter and a photo attached?

Christian Aid always have good forms for this sort of thing - if you click here you an e-mail Gordon Brown via them http://act.christianaid.org.uk/ea-campaign/clientcampaign.do?ea.client.id=48&ea.campaign.id=2193

That's exactly it johnfas - but I want to do a letter to politicians as well, asking them to sever diplomatic relations with Israel, for emailing and or printing, for anyone who wants to send it.
I'll write the letter up and post it here.

I'm doing the one to tesco up now... it has the ability to print so you can bring it anywhere or a button to e-mail so that it is e-mailed directly to tesco. I'll have it up in a few minutes.

elaine, who registered yesterday, taped this report from Sky showing the same report by the UN bombed with phosphorus, the fires from which can only be put out with sand
