Boycott for Peace!
We boycott for many reasons, if you haven't already, you can read about some of them here: http://boycott4peace.blogspot.com/search/label/why%20we%20boycott
Most of the dates sold around the world are from the illegally occupied territories. This is also true of dates that are ingredients in snacks, deserts, and natural foods, as well as those found in bulk bins in health food stores. Date sugar and date bits, which are sold for baking and raw foods recipes are also likely from the illegally occupied territories. Even dates labeled Palestinian are likely to profit Israelis in the illegally occupied territory. Read the labels! If the label says Palestine and they are not Fair Trade Certified they are probably really occupation dates.
Please share far and wide. Our success depends on education!
