    Lets never forget there is a difference between the peoples of a nation and their leaders. I am sure many peoples of other nations would not want to be judged on the actions of their government. We the people need to feel for all the victims of bad governance.

  3. ROVSKI says:

    Boycott companies and not people. There are so many bandits it hard to choose. I for one have minimized the amount of my money I let bank use.

    Marc Mezvinsky
    Chelsea Clinton’s fiancee, Marc Mezvinsky, is the son of former Iowa congressman and convicted felon Edward Mezvinsky and former NBC reporter and congresswoman Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky. Mezvinsky is an investment banker with Goldman Sachs. NY Daily News: Chelsea Beau’s Dad Doing 7 Yrs.

    “Democracy would have come to an end in the US”

    Its already happened Lord Monckton via Wall St

    The only problem I have with an alternative to oil is that there is no real practical alternative other than nuclear. And that would also mean an absolutely massive infrastructure design and build.

    project.

    @flicks People have been given the illusion of democracy,..as a pacifier, I mean,. who would want to admit they’re inadequate and powerless!

    @flick Lord Mockton told so many lies and half truths I lost some respect for kingworldnews for giving him an uncritical forum. Democracy in the USA, get real. Different popular puppets not real democracy.

    Off topic—I thought this was a very interesting story from the Los Angeles Times and I am putting this up twice, here off topic from the post in hopes it will be noticed and discussed on Max and Stacy’s Saturday radio show. It relates to NSA and the “Perfect Citizen” program. I would get a kick out of it if you would please discuss this. Don’t forget to post the radio show on i-Tunes please.

    Boycotts work!

    1. March 1769 – merchants in Philadelphia joined the boycott of British trade goods at the time of the American Revolution.
    2. 1880 – an English land agent in Ireland who was subject to a boycott organized by the Irish Land League
    3. 1955 – Montgomery Bus Boycott

    The kingworldnews is a clown studio for the neo-con conservative class.
    Total propaganda.

  22. Danny says:

    Heres a small clip from a large protest in Cork, Ireland, after the attack on the flotilla. Here the march sits down on one of Cork’s main streets. The people of Cork I’m glad to say were very supportive with many joining the march after witnessing it. We then marched on several supermarkets demanding they not sell Israeli goods.

    I went to the website of Mr. Hever to find a list of brands marketed in the USA that are made in Israel. No such list was available, or at least readily available, on the website. I did email them and tell them to get that list available now.

    All I know is that the NAOT brand of high-end shoes are sold on HSN.com and several other places, so do not purchase those shoes.

  24. Tamir says:

    @Stacy, Max, all,

    There is a great deal of hypocrisy here. I am sure these people’s intention is good, but they don’t seem to be very concearned about Arab dictatorships, Chinese goods, American goods, Sudanese goods, Japanese goods (they hunt whales, yes?) etc. etc. The only flash point that matters is Israel.
    Now ask yourself why.

  25. Illinois brandon says:

    We must remember that the Jews have suffered much over the course of thousands of years. Not everything wrong in the world in their fault although many seem to think so. I don’t agree with many of the Government’s policies but the Jews have suffered alot.

  26. Illinois brandon says:

    We should also support boycotts against Syria and Iran seeing how they fund terror against Israel shouldn’t we? Are we saying Arabs are blameless here?

  27. nama rama says:

    “IRELAND has forced a rethink on a plan to allow sensitive personal data on European citizens to be handed over to Israel.”

    “The findings of the committee were circulated to all governments and a failure to respond to their report would have been interpreted as approval for the recommendation.”

    mmmmm!

    @Illinois Brandon – you say, “We must remember that the Jews have suffered much over the course of thousands of years. Not everything wrong in the world in their fault although many seem to think so. I don’t agree with many of the Government’s policies but the Jews have suffered alot.”

    Everyone suffers a lot. But no one reminds us of their suffering as much as the Jews, and frankly the world’s sick of it. When is this “free pass” for evil based upon past misery going to run out of credit? How about every nation go back to their own property, get out of their neighbors’ yards, then let’s see who the aggressors are, and who’s causing the suffering?

  29. stacyherbert says:

    @Tamir – there are several boycott campaigns against China; there were several against the US leading up to the invasion of Iraq, but people seem not to care any more about that occupation; there are also many more vocal and powerful campaigns against the Sudan headed by the likes of George Clooney and Mia Farrow, this has lead to the leader of the country having an international arrest warrant on charges of war crimes; re: Japan, well I won’t compare whales to Palestinians, but there is a very successful campaign against the actual whale hunting in the case to which you refer

  30. Gordo says:

    Don’t you think that the Clinton lead sanctions against Iran are enough for you?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    How about attempting to get a little perspective here. The wests military budget is 100 x that of Iran’s.

  31. Tamir says:

    @Stacy,

    Let’s face it: Just about every nation on this planet has corpses in the closet. Another prominent example could be Turkey: Do you see a massive boycott of Turkish goods because of what happened to the Armenians and the invasion of Cyprus and the treatment of the Kurds? I mean, where does this end? I am not happy at all with the situation in the Middle-East and quite frankly I don’t miss it at all as a home. I also believe that peace will not be reached unless the PEOPLE of the region learn to live with one another showing respect and understanding, and I fully agree that’s Israel policies are counter productive and damaging (as well as are the policies of others). I am just wondering, and I still haven’t seen a reference to that, why Israel is singled out, in a world that is filled with with injustice, violence and horror.

    I believe Stacy just enumerated many many & many boycotts for many good causes. How is Israel being singled out?

    Maybe you need to tell us – How is Israel being singled out?

    Streamlining and Strengthening Export Controls

    Overview of the Bureau of Industry and Security’s Recent Efforts to Streamline and Strengthen Export Controls:

    U.S.-China end-use visit understanding

    The United States Department of Commerce is pleased to have agreed with the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China on procedures to strengthen end-use visit cooperation and help ensure that U.S. exports of controlled dual-use items are being used by their intended recipients for their intended purposes. This new end-use visit understanding specifies procedures for conducting end-use visits, while also providing a mechanism for consultations on other end-use visit issues that may arise. The understanding resolves a long-standing issue of great importance to the U.S.-China high-technology relationship. We hope that this understanding will enable increased U.S. exports to China of high-technology items. This new end-use visit understanding provides an important example of the United States and China working together to solve practical problems to the benefit of both their peoples.

    Oopsey, WRONG LINK .. although applicable this was the link I was after …

    http://www.bis.doc.gov/complianceandenforcement/antiboycottcompliance.htm

    Antiboycott Compliance

    The Bureau is charged with administering and enforcing the Antiboycott Laws under the Export Administration Act. Those laws discourage, and in some circumstances, prohibit U.S. companies from furthering or supporting the boycott of Israel sponsored by the Arab League, and certain Moslem countries, including complying with certain requests for information designed to verify compliance with the boycott. Compliance with such requests may be prohibited by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and may be reportable to the Bureau.

    Boycott Alert

    U.S. companies continue to report receiving requests to engage in activities that further or support the boycott of Israel. U.S. companies may receive similar requests in the future. If you have questions, please call (202) 482-2381 and ask for the Duty Officer or you may contact us by email.

    Antiboycott Laws:

    During the mid-1970’s the United States adopted two laws that seek to counteract the participation of U.S. citizens in other nation’s economic boycotts or embargoes. These “antiboycott” laws are the 1977 amendments to the Export Administration Act (EAA) and the Ribicoff Amendment to the 1976 Tax Reform Act (TRA). While these laws share a common purpose, there are distinctions in their administration.

    Objectives:

    The antiboycott laws were adopted to encourage, and in specified cases, require U.S. firms to refuse to participate in foreign boycotts that the United States does not sanction. They have the effect of preventing U.S. firms from being used to implement foreign policies of other nations which run counter to U.S. policy.

  35. Tamir says:

    @leobrady,

    Israel is singled out by using this unfortunate situation in the MI as a springboard to claim it is illegitimate.

    Did you even hear anybody seriously claiming the USA is an illegitimate state?

    Did you even hear anybody seriously claiming the China is an illegitimate state?

    Did you even hear anybody seriously claiming that Saudi Arabia is an illegitimate state?

    Did you even hear anybody seriously claiming the Turkey is an illegitimate state?

    Did you even hear anybody seriously claiming the Sudan is an illegitimate state?

    I can go on for a while, for I think you get the picture.

  36. Leo Brady says:

    @MaxPower – interesting – just goes to show how serious boycotts are being taken.

    @Tamir – My father used to say something to me that may help you with regards to this issue, “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.”

  37. Tamir says:

    @leobrady,

    Thanks for your kind attempt to help me out. I did not understand the relevance of your post, though…! And, you also failed to address my (multiple) questions, while engaging in cliquish (no offense meant).
