    OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Israeli businessmen expressed fears that the European campaign to boycott Israeli products could widen after a sharp decline in exports.

    The Israeli Maariv newspaper on Sunday published a report on the dangers of growing economic boycott of Israeli products in Europe in which it affirmed that the recent months have seen a rise in the number of European companies which withdrew their investments in Israeli companies for political reasons.

    Israeli businessman Daniel Bettini, an owner of glass factory in Ariel settlement, said the boycott campaign caused enormous harm to Israel's factories which depend on exports to Europe.

    The newspaper quoted Avi Ben-Zvi, who also owns a factory of glass in the same settlement, as saying that his factory stopped exporting its products to Europe because of this campaign.

    Ahh consumer power.
    Should consumers be forced to buy products from Israel if they do not want to?

    What happens to the Palestinian cause if world-wide boycotts inflict a Great Depression on Greater Israel?

    Does Israel's "Sampson Option" become a real possibility?

    Who wins if all Palestine glows in the dark?
