Support for Israel

Here at UN242, we frequently receive mail asking how can we do more to support Israel’s valiant military struggle against unarmed Arab civilians. Here are a few ways that you can show your support…

  1. If you are an American taxpayer. Stay right there on the couch. Don’t do anything! You are already contributing $4 billion in addition to substantial military support. Just pat yourself on the back and sleep soundly at night, safe in the knowledge that you are, in no small way, partly-responsible for the deaths of thousands of Arab women and children at the hands of your Israeli friends. Well done Americans!
  2. If you are not an American, you have a choice – you can either write a personal check to President Shimon Peres or support the Israeli economy by buying some nice Israeli products. Here is a partial list…

Jaffa Oranges, Avocados and Dates – Israel grows some lovely food produce. They have a number of avocado varieties including Fuerte and Hass. Rest assured that all are grown on stolen Palestinian land using the bodies of small Arab boys for fertilizer. I’m eating half a Hass right now. I like to cut it in half and eat it with salt and pepper and malt vinegar. Lovely!

Marks and Spencer – This British high street shop is a vocal supporter of Israel and conducts over $200 million of trade with it each year. Try their excellent prawn cocktail sandwiches. They’re packed with delicious Israeli prawns. I love Marks and Sparks!

Nokia – Buy yourself a shiny new cellphone! Nokia has invested heavily in Israel. Imagine, not only is every call crystal clear but it’s also helping Israel to crush the intifada!

Caterpillar – OK, so most of us don’t need to buy a digger, but maybe you own a construction company or have a big garden or something. By supporting Caterpillar, you can reward them for the good work they are doing in the so-called “occupied territories”. Caterpillar provides the Israeli army with specially modified D9 bulldozers that can demolish dozens of Palestinian homes in a day – sometimes with Palestinians inside them! (two for the price of one!).

If reading this is making you feel like supporting Israel right now, why not make an online purchase here.

If you are looking for additional Israeli products to buy or you want to support companies that support Israel, the Boycott Israel Campaign provides an excellent starting point. Thanks guys!
