Action Alert: Buy Israeli Products at Trader Joe’s

Posted by challahbackgirl on June 18, 2009

Made in Israel — Sold in the USA

The local JCRC and AJC have reported receiving information that there will be protest demonstrations outside various Trader Joe’s supermarket chain locations this Saturday, June 20, 2009 aimed at Trader Joe’s stocking of Israeli products. During such protests in other countries, anti-Israel agitators have entered stores and thrown the, “Made in Israel” products on the floor. Both groups are sending the same urgent message:
Buy Israeli products at Trader Joe’s

From the AJC:

AJC has alerted the head office of Trader Joe’s to this possibility and urged them to be vigilant. Please consider visiting a Trader Joe’s store before Saturday and purchasing  products from Israel. If a sizable number of us do just this, it will send a strong message of support to Trader Joe’s, it will also help Israel and thwart the agitators-there will be no or very few Israeli products left to de-shelve.

From the JCRC who also have a Facebook event for the cause.

The JCRC is calling on the community to buy Israeli foods at Trader Joes anytime you shop, especially this week. A local activist group plans to go to various Trader Joes this Saturday and take Israeli products off the shelves, simply dumping them into carts. This disruptive action is intended to promote a boycott of Israel’s products, and Trader Joes along with other markets have been targeted.

You can enjoy delicious Israeli products such as couscous and feta cheese—buy some for your friends and neighbors too! Your purchases will confirm for Trader Joes that they carry products that reflect the tastes of their patrons, and also their patrons’ appreciation that TJ’s does not allow itself to be censored by political bias. Last week in Pittsburgh, a similar boycott action took place and the Trader Joes management asked the people to leave the store on the grounds that they were trespassing. These boycott efforts are being organized across the country around World Refugee Day, which is Saturday, June 20.

  1. This is from the JCRC Middle East Project:

    Action Alert!
    Shop at Trader Joe’s
    June 19th & 20th
    BACKGROUND:

    Earlier this month anti-Israel activists attempted to have Trader Joe’s de-shelve their Israeli products and to join the greater Boycott, Divest, Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel. After investigating the matter we have learned the following from Jon Basalone, Senior VP, Marketing at Trader Joe’s:

    “…Our response is that we sell products, and do not use our products as political tools or to make any statements about any political causes. We have no intention of removing any products based on pressure from any group, no matter what they support or don’t support. As always, we believe our customers are smart, and they are capable of making decisions about what they purchase…”

    Why shop at TJ’s on the 19th & 20th?

    In conjunction with “World Refugee Day” on June 20th anti-Israel activists will be launching “National Day to De-Shelve Israeli products” with the intention to deshelve, sticker, boycott, and protest the presence of Israeli products.

    These stickers appeared on Israeli products in the Bay Area in October, 2008. Stickers read: “Boycott Israeli Products FREE PALESTINE”

    ACTION ITEMS:

    1. Go to your local Trader Joe’s and buy Israeli products.

    2. Let the store manager know that you support their food selection policy.

    3. If you see products that have been vandalized (at any grocery store) alert the store manager as well as the JCRC. Document the situation if possible.

    Ah, but what to do with all of those products after we’ve bought them? Fortunately, my mom has provided the answer at http://www.divestthis.com.

    Happy shopping!

  24. With the 4th decide on in the 2006 NFL Draft, the new York Jets selected D¡¯Brickashaw Ferguson. Today, in 2014, we can sit in this article and mention that ¡®Brick has commenced almost every match of his job at left deal with. To obtain an offensive lineman that has started off many games with a row is incredible. He’s strong, and he is talented.

    Above his 8 year occupation, Ferguson continues to be on the list of finest left tackles with the league – he’s been selected to three Pro Bowls and it has been part of two AFC Championship video games with Gang Eco-friendly.Why does not he get his share of appreciation? In some cases its pleasurable to admit anyone such as Ferguson. Once the Jets at any time go to Tremendous Bowl, I¡¯m able to guarantee that he won¡¯t be within a reporter¡¯s skin screaming, ¡°DON¡¯T YOU At any time Communicate ABOUT ME!¡± The time is right and to show some want to the soft-spoken beast which includes anchored the offensive line for many years.

    Walking close to MetLife Stadium, you don’t see everything lots of followers donning jerseys with quantity sixty around the back. And why don’t you? A hometown kid from Freeport on Very long Island, Ferguson has actually been an anchor about the offensive line for around your Ten years now. When again, he¡¯s do not ever skipped a recreation; he¡¯s been a professional Bowler. Not forgetting, his partner-in-crime across the O-Line, Nick Mangold, can get plenty of awareness.Well, for me personally its pretty very simple. He shuts his mouth and will get his position carried out.

  25. Awesome post.
