European Banks Boycott Israeli Banks Because of 'Settlements'
inn ^ | 2/1/14 | Elad Benari

Posted on 02/01/2014 6:57:41 PM PST by Nachum

Two of the largest banks in northern Europe have announced they will boycott Israeli banks because they operate in “occupied territories”, the Walla! Hebrew-language news website reported on Saturday.

The two banks in question are the Swedish Nordea Bank, which is the largest bank in Scandinavia, and the Norwegian Danske Bank, which is the largest bank in Denmark.

Danske Bank, which serves five ​​million customers in Denmark and Northern Europe , publishes on its website a list of companies which are boycotted for legal and ethical reasons. Two weeks ago the list was updated and, according to Walla!, for the first time it includes an Israeli bank - Bank Hapoalim .

The Danish bank already announced in 2010 that it was boycotting two Israeli construction firms, Africa Israel and Denya Cebus, because of their involvement in construction of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria, but Walla! noted that is the first time that the bank announces a boycott of an Israeli bank because it has invested heavily over the Green Line and has branches in the region.

I had the pleasure of working with Israeli companies as an independent contractor in 2011, and I was amazed by the number of neo-Nazi jew haters in Europe and America, especially in the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement.

They should boycott the United States because every square inch of the US is “occupied territory” and we are going to continue to “occupy” it until Hell freezes over.

Time to start boycotting Swedish and Norwegian products.

Start with sardines and work you way down the food aisles and see if IKEA is one of their businesses.

Time to fight back. All Jewish travel agencies should refuse to book trips to these countries. Period.

I expected some of the Swedes to be anti-semitic as they have allowed Malmo to become their top city of anti-semtism, but the Norweigans surprised me.

Time to take my money elsewhere.

Spread the word: Swedish and Norwegian products are “TREIF”.

John Effin and his leftist State Department egged them on. I am sure they encouraged this bank boycott through the channels they have

Enable Iranian nukes and starve out Israel is Kerry’s formula

Attempts to impose a boycott on the State of Israel are immoral and unjust. Moreover, they will not achieve their goal. First, they cause the Palestinians to adhere to their intransigent positions and thus push peace further away. Second, no pressure will cause me to concede the vital interests of the State of Israel, especially the security of Israel's citizens. For both of these reasons, threats to boycott the State of Israel will not achieve their goal.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never bothered Israel, could be because she wanted to keep her Jewish donors in case she runs for president in 2016. John Kerry is looking to be in the history books and could care less if he hurts America’s traditional mid East allies doing this. I mean Saudi Arabia and Israel and others by enabling Shiite Iran and its nuclear programs

Kerry is a semi-mental case via his Jewish father (mother and father Jews who immigrated to America) who always kept his Jewish background hidden as he worked for the eternally anti-Semitic US Department of State as a lawyer and such.

Thanks very much for providing those links. I knew he had some Jewish ancestry, but didn’t recall the details. That said, he should be standing strong with our ally Israel for several valid reasons, but he’s working for the Marxist’s regime and I think he’s aligned himself with Obama’s views.

Kerry’s never been known for his allegiance to America regardless.
