Skip to comments.Food co-op in Rachel Corrie's hometown [Olympia,WA] boycotts Israeli goods
Posted on 07/20/2010 5:47:18 AM PDT by HearMe
The Olympia Food Co-op announced last week that no more Israeli products will be sold at its two grocery stores.
Last week, the board of directors of the Olympia Food Co-op in Washington state decided that no more Israeli products will be sold at its two grocery stores in the city.
"We met last Thursday for the board members meeting and a pretty large group about 40 people presented the boycott project and answered our questions," Rob Richards, a board member, told Haaretz. "A couple of board members were concerned about what will be the financial effect on the organization, but its minimal. For me personally there is a moral imperative that goes beyond any financial concern. So we decided to adopt the boycott which went into effect the next day."
Asked whether the boycott includes all products made in Israel, or only in settlements, Richards explained: "As far as I know it concerns any Israeli products. We exempted "Peace Oil" its a joint product produced by the Palestinian farmers. Any product that is made by the company that works to improve the conditions of the Palestinians will be exempted."
Richards says the decision drew no protests.

I guess they will also ban pancake, waffle and crepe mixes.
Yep, but I hear they are also Rachel Corrie free too.
If the cost to business had not been minimal how would they have voted?
Israeli sources, meanwhile, have said that, “The two thousand dollars in lost annual revenue will really sting.”
... quick find the maple syrup.
If every American were to learn what was in the Hamas charter, Israel would never have to worry about public support, ever again. Thats how important it is. If every Israeli leader would carry a copy of the Hamas charter, Id say to you that its game, set and match.” ~ Frank Luntz 07/16/2010 http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2555426/posts?page=3#3
Yeah, their pantry only.
Beside their remarkable inability to be able to see right from wrong, and their support for terrorists who would happily kill them exactly for their liberal lifestyles, the hypocrisy is astounding.
Why don’t they go all the way? Why not boycott Israeli technology. I guess maybe they don’t want to go back to a computer free world and communicating with pen and paper.
The Leftist mindset is so damaged that they are incapable of learning anything.
Israelis are losing the public relations war because Israelis believe that history and facts and reality and every other objective criteria should count. It is not easy for rational human beings to accept that truth doesn’t matter.
I guarantee you that you can show these people the Hamas Charter, and anything else, and it won’t change one mind. They will blame Israel for Hamas’ genocidal intentions.
Whole thing makes me want to puke. Damned Liberals have a basic overwhelming NEED for attention. They will do anything to bring attention upon themselves for a shining moment.
The best thing is to ignore the bastards, but then they do something outrageous, and then follow up with something even more outrageous for the attention they FEEL they deserve, and need so badly.
Libs are attention whores, and this boycott, and others such as the Arizona boycotts, the stupid resolutions, and so on are attention grabbing schemes to make the Leftists/Liberals FEEL important, and that they are participating with their IN-CROWD of fellow morons.
I apologize for not knowing how to post an actual link.
Two grocery stores and this makes headlines? Not even supermarkets but grocery stores? A million TEA Party members go to Washington DC last Sept and the leftist MSM ignores them..... but somehow can find a deep article about a leftist moonbat NW food co-op that probably counts “organic” as its main product. What a bunch of left-wing idiots. I hope they go bankrupt extolling the virtues of 0bamunism & their pathetic boycott of Israeli products.
They also ban D9 Grub.
D9 Grub is a canned concoction to feed your bulldozer and make it big and strong. It was originally made from D9 roadkill
Nice to know there is a “Rachel Corrie” menu available for the illegals. I am sure they appreciate the jew-free eats.
You'd best believe this little gang of Islamofascist butt-kissers in Washington has Judenfrei as an ambition.
Just where does this idea that kissing their butts will make them respect us come from?
A nice new shopping mall opened today in Gaza: Will the media report on it? Will the Western media show these images?
She made great track lube.
Actually the word is “Himmelfahrt.”
Any comments from Leftist Jewish organizations like the ADL or the AJC?
Wow.... now that’s a real sacrifice for them....
“Yep, but I hear they are also Rachel Corrie free too.”
Presumably smells a lot better without the little terrorist.
That’s the important point. It should be noted that sales of Israeli products at that store had been rather flat.
Boycotts work both ways. Anyone going to join me in boycotting the Olympia Food Co-Op?
boy WA is quite the State-illegal alien shelter cities, cities banning oil sands products, easy on marijuana possession, large population of homosexuals and now anti Israeli...sounds like an Obama test market.
This past weekend I took my family to Barton Spring park to go swimming. Out front were a few kids waving around Free Gaza signs and asking people to sign petitions.
Not to waste a good opportunity in front of quite a few people I said, “This is great! I can’t believe people are finally getting it.” All these little Marxists were all happy that I was on the same page with them. My wife put her head in her hands because she knew what was coming next.
I walk up to the girl with the Rachel Corrie shirt on,(Didn’t want to do the Che thing) take the pen and while I am signing a false name I say, “People who finally believe that the Palestinians need to go back to Jordan. That someone is finally smart enough to know that Trans Jordan was separated into two states back in 48. That freeing Gaza of all those foul smelling terrorists is the best thing that can happen to peace.”
I drop the pen and petition and in front of everyone say, “this is what you are learning in school? How to be an uninformed useful idiot?”
A big round of applause ensued. When we left the pool they were no where to be found.
If you look on the Leftist list of all the companies that should be boycotted because they do significant work in Israel you will always find Intel.
Yet these hypocrites somehow fail to boycott anything with Intel inside: Macs and PC’s.
They are so brave in their boycotts when they boycott the product of tiny entities that are just struggling to make a living but never when it would cause these proponents of boycotts any real hardship.
These are worthless human beings. I have no time for people like these. They are typical for the area they live in. I wouldn’t spit on them if they were on fire.
And of course they’re getting rid of all the Intel processor chips in their computers and their cell phone voicemail and Motorola cell phones—all of which have connections to Israel (created by, manufactured in . . .)
Sarcasm now off. . .
You have a classier style than me. I usually stand opposite them with signs saying “Free Gaza—Destroy Hamas!”
I’m boycotting Sabra humus, as I do all humus.
Go back and read the post again. THE ENTIRE POST, NOT JUST THE FIRST PARAGRAPH.
I’ve read many of your posts over the years, and the thing with your response that pisses me off the most is that YOU know better.
Also had I stated as you intimate, how in the “H” does “ignoring a Liberal” translate to “kissing there ass”? One of the best ways to fire a Lib up is to ignore what spews from their torqued brains via the orifice in the front of their heads, especially Lib women.
Wow...she sure as hell doesn’t “blend in” there, does she?
It wasn’t political - the produce was full of Caterpillars.
There are, on the other hand, a large number of people who will tell you "just ignore them", but I'd rather abuse them in some manner.
I don't ever "just ignore" anyone.
True of WA west of the Cascade Curtain. East is sane.
The Jew-hating bitch has been dead how many years, and this one particular pack of leftist numbskulls just got the memo?
