FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a list of FAQs that are pertinent to what we stand for :
1. What is the boycott about?
The boycott of Israeli products and companies supporting the zionist entity is about ordinary people around the world using their right to choose what they buy in order to help bring about an end to oppression in Palestine. Its a peaceful means of putting international pressure on the state of Israel and follows in the footsteps of the successful boycott against South African racist apartheid in the 1950s.
2. Are you boycotting all Jews?
Certainly not ! The boycott is not directed at any religious or ethnic group, but rather it is directed at the companies that are supporting the racist occupation of Palestine. We aim that subtle, sustained economic pressure that a successful boycott campaign would achieve would go miles to bring justice to the people of Palestine.
3. Who supports the boycott, what do our Ulema say about it?
People of good conscience all around the world support the boycott.
Trade Unions around the world, including the UK's biggest trade union UNISON with its 1.4 million members, have called for a boycott of all Israeli goods. Christian groups like Christian Aid have joined the boycott demanding an end to EU - Israel trade agreements. And Jewish groups such as B'Tselem and Gush Shalom have launched their own boycott Israeli goods campaigns.
Among Muslims, every leading Ulama from every school of thought is united in this and has given clear fatwas in support of the boycott.
