Yousef salivates whenever he hears about a boycott against Israel. Why not tell us, Yousef,. how wonderfully South Africa is doing economically? Meanwhile, hadn't you better rush to India and tell them to stop doing business with Israel? No wonder there were Hindu posters on another board who would always be saying "God bless Israel."
Israel blesses India with agricultural assistance
Israel recently set up a project to bring its hard won agricultural know how to India, which has over a billion mouths to feed every day but suffers from low crop yields. "Israel's agriculture is based on cooperative principles," said Orna Sagiv, Israel's consul-general in the Indian state of Gajurat. "Water is a precious resource for our country as it is for Gujarat. Drip irrigation using recycled water is what we practice in Israel, while water from desalination plant is supplied to houses. It is this philosophy that we want to share with Gujarat."
its old news-----she seems to have posted it at least a hundred times
It seems that posters like Yousef like to tell us about boycotts of Israel over and over and over, but they never tell us when countries cooperate with Israel on certain ventures or which countries have respect for Israel and vice versa.
UK, Israel launch regenerative medicine projects
The British and Israeli governments will jointly fund five major research projects in regenerative medicine - the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function in diseased ones. British Ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould announced the program on Monday as part of the BIRAX Regenerative Medicine Initiative, a five-year multi-million Pound program launched in 2008. Prominent stem cell researchers from both countries are working to develop treatments and/or cures for multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and Type 1 Diabetes.
Stamp demonstrates strong ties between Israel and Nepal
As part of events celebrating decades of cooperation, the governments of Israel and the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal recently issued a joint stamp featuring the Dead Sea and Mount Everest, the lowest and highest places on Earth. The stamp also features the flags of the two countries and an inscription in Hebrew, Nepalese, Arabic and English.
Boycotts of Israeli products are good for business-------when they are boycotted the arabs develope a HUNGER FOR THEM
September 12th, 2012
Next to the PA the Israeli West Bank communities are the largest employers of Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank, employing some 30,000 of them and paying higher wages than are available anywhere else. Despite determined efforts of Abbas and Fayyad to force these people to quit these jobs and be unable to support their families, the number continues to grow.
Should the South African move negatively impact the economies of Israel's West Bank communities, which is doubtful, some Palestinian Arab workers will lose their jobs and likely be unable to find another, indicating that while the South African government is clearly anti Israeli, it is not pro Palestinian Arab.
What Yousef doesn't tell us is that the Arabs have jobs in the West Bank, so when you boycott goods from there, the Arabs are being hurt too. Naturally Yousef doesn't care about the Arabs being hurt economically in the West Bank as long as he can continue posting about boycotts. Meanwhile, Israel has other countries to trade with which of course Yousef doesn't like them doing so. As far as that Turkish ship is concerned, how come those phonies don't try to help Muslims elsewhere -- like the Pakistanis who are still suffering from the floods or those in the Swat Valley. The other Turkish ships seemed to obey orders and weren't harmed so why did this one ship disobey? Of course we know that they were sayng they wanted to be martyrs when they left so they were ready to make trouble. I wouldn't say that people who want to be martyrs are actual peace activists.
I think it is great what South Africa is doing, but they shoulod really go further. Since Apartheid is practiced inside the pre 1949 borders, as well as the pre 1967 borders, as well as the OPT, boycott of all Israeli products and all products produced by illegal settlements in the OPT is called for. I refer to the findings of prior Russel Tribunals for my statements here that Israel carries out Apartheid practices throughout the pe 1949 borders, and pre 1967 borders, as well as the OPT.
It looks like Sherri doesn't care if her Arab brothers have no work because of a boycott of all Israeli products. However, we know that hypocrites like Sherri and the rest of her friends would never boycott some medical invention comining out of Israel if it could help them, now would they? Meanwhile, I just know, since Sherri is such an honest person, she is going to tell us how the non-Muslim people in Muslim countries are treated like second-class citizens. Go ahead, Sherri, tell us about it -- how many of the non Muslim workers are treated like slaves.
