BUYcott March 30, 2011

buycott is the opposite of a boycott; that is, an active campaign to buy the products or services of a particular company or country.

The best way to counter Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (Bluff, Deceive, Swindle?) is to buy Israeli goods and be seen buying them. Even better, if BDS is demonstrating in front of a shop in your area when you do. Show them you won’t be intimidated.

Five Minutes for Israel applauds StandWithUs call for schools, campuses, synagogues, community organizations, and individuals to celebrate Israel on March 30 by purchasing Israeli-made products and countering the global anti-Israel boycott day.
