‘NO’ CAN MEAN YES WHEN IT COMES TO ENDING APARTHEID!

This is just sick!

Bloomberg Warns BDS Will Lead to ‘Massacres’ as Park Slope Co-op Holds Initial Vote on Boycott Tonight … Report HERE

*
*
Early last week I posted THIS regarding the BDS Movement. I asked my readers one question; Is the BDS Movement Anti-Semitic? Included in the post was a poll conducted on behalf of the Park Slope Food Coop as to whether or not remove Israeli products from their shelves.
*
The results of the vote were as follows…

Is the Park Slope Food Coop’s potential ban of Israeli products anti-Semitic?

1214 votes casted
351 voted Yes (28%)
863 voted No (71%)
*
Regardless of the poll’s results, A New York food co-op, servicing thousands of Brooklyn residents of varying ethnicities and backgrounds, voted against a proposed boycott of Israeli goods and produce on Tuesday night.
*
That from a combined HaAretz and AP report found HERE

Brooklyn food co-op votes against boycott of Israeli products

Park Slope Food Co-op, a common meeting ground for Brooklyn residents and Jews of all denominations, reached the decision following months of deliberations.

*
That’s Democracy! Despite what the first survey indicated, the CoOp decided otherwise;

Initially discussed at a co-op member board meeting over two years ago, the proposed boycott was brought to a vote on Tuesday night, with 1,005 members voting against the boycott and 653 voting in favor.

*

Obviously influenced by the following….

*

Public Advocate and Brooklyn resident Bill de Blasio said he was proud of his neighbors for doing the right thing, calling the proposal inflammatory and destructive.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn called the idea “ill conceived” and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer denounced the proposed boycott as “an anti-Semitic crusade.”

*

BUT…. the decision cannot stop the Boycott. It’s up to the consumers themselves. I am confident that the original supporters of the proposal and those that voted in the first poll will continue to boycott Israeli products and we will see the boycott grow in other areas of the business sector as well.

‘NO’ CAN MEAN YES WHEN IT COMES TO ENDING APARTHEID!

Look for the Bar Code

Say NO to Bar Code 729!

    “Massacre” as in Bloomberg bringing the Pinkerton Thugs to the Park Slope Food Cooper as he did in the case of OWS.
    Bloomberg is a puppet, a stooge, a tool, a criminal and his entire wealth generated from a business model which promotes insider trading on Wall Street.
