can someone tell me how one can support palestinian arabs and be anti-semetic at the same time? Since when is being anti settler, and anti zionist the same as being anti jewish or anti judaism..they are not the same thing. If I object to Assad and his poicies am I then anti syrian, if I object to the politics of Erdogan am I anti turkish. Many many jews are not zionists, and many object to zionism and settlements. What have the rights of palestinians ( no inverted commas) to do with Israel's...

What have the rights of palestinians ( no inverted commas) to do with Israel's behaviour? it is a seperate issue even though it is connected to the occupation. let the palestinians come home and they wouldnt need to be in Jordan, syria and egypt..problem solved!

Not to mention these companies are used as fronts to place Israeli spies across America in mall kiosks to sell their STOLEN goods to poor uneducated fools like Esti. People like you make me sick Esti, using the antisemitism card every time Israel gets called out on their bs. Guess what Esti?, Palestinians are Semites too, so you're kind of half right, you're just defending the wrong side.

Claim
- “Ahava uses in its products mud excavated in an occupied area, and thus it exploits occupied natural resources for profit, which is a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.”
Facts
•The mud and minerals used in Ahava’s cosmetic products are not excavated in an occupied area. The minerals are mined in the
Israeli part of the Dead Sea, which is undisputed internationally.
•The mining area and operation are limited in scope, and in no way affect or hinder any future use of minerals...

Like all Israeli settlements in the Israeli-occupied territories, Mitzpe Shalem is considered illegal under international law, though Israeli disputes this. The international community considers Israeli settlements to violate the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on the transfer of an occupying power's civilian population into occupied territory.

Like all Israeli settlements in the Israeli-occupied territories, Mitzpe Shalem is considered illegal under international law, though Israeli disputes this. The international community considers Israeli settlements to violate the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on the transfer of an occupying power's civilian population into occupied territory. Israeli government counters this by contending that the Fourth Geneva Convention does not apply to the Palestinian territories because they were not under the legitimate sovereignty of any state. This view has been rejected on the basis of an interpretation of rulings by the International Court of Justice and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Our allies at Who Profits received written documentation that Ahava excavates mud from the occupied shores of the Dead Sea. This is forbidden as pillage and plunder under international law.

support nonviolent resistance to the occupation.

So, David, if your oppressors offer you double pay, you forget the oppression? The Palestinian economy has been devastated by the Israeli blockade, so often people have no choice to work for the occupying forces. Non violent protest is the way to go, even when met by brutal Israeli humiliation and violence on a daily basis.

This will not cleanse the stain of Israeli occupation from the land of Palestine.

Israel needs to get on with Justice for All .. Palestinians have given up Too Much. Peacemakers Arise - join the Women & Men in Black - End the unjust Occupation of Israeli settlers and soldiers NOW!!

This case should be filed at the UN International Court of Justice in the Hague! Human Rights should be applied in Israel towards the Palestinian people where oppression is applied by the Zionist movement headed by Mr. Natanyahou and encouraged by the settlers! Palestinians are also the sons of Abraham; so, they cannot be accused of being anti semitic!!!

God help our innocent people as they suffer from destruction all the time.

God help our innocent people as they suffer from destruction all the time. Our grandfathers, our parents, our children', it is generation after generation suffered and still suffering from Israeli occupation. What worse than to lose your children's, your family, your neighbors, your friends, and your home…In another ward…What worse than to live under occupation…This is not fair. Israeli stole almost everything, and now is stealing the rest as our nature resources. They are so rude and not care about anything, they do not care what other people in the rest of the World think or say about them, and simply they do not give a dam about anything and they do whatever they want without any punishment. And they can get away with their crimes, even though we live in 21 century and we are still under occupation. USA has the statue of liberty, and just celebrates the independent day 4th of July, and myself I celebrate this day as well, but it is Ironic that they are the main country who uses the veto for the sake of Israel any time other countries vote against their crimes. Palestinians people paid the most valuable they have for their land, they paid and still pay their blood…Isn't it the time for them to celebrate their independent day and their freedom as other countries who got them earlier?.
