This Ramadan, Don’t Break your Fast with an Israeli Date

Ramadan is a time of year when we remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves.  It  would be an affront if at such a time we helped support oppression

Every year, Israel exports millions of pounds worth of dates to the world, which many people unknowingly buy and use to break their fasts. These dates are grown in illegal settlements in the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, on land that has been stolen from Palestinians. By buying these dates, we are in fact helping Israel to continue its occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people.

For this reason, Friends of Al Aqsa will again be launching the ‘Check the Label’ Campaign.

Check The Label

Most of the major supermarkets will stock dates produced in Israel, West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Dates produced in the West Bank and the Jordan Valley are from Illegal Israeli Settlements and should also be boycotted.

Check the barcode

I was reminded of this boycott when I was in Walmart yesterday looking for dates to buy as Ramadan is coming up. I saw these ones and checked the country of origin at the back and it said Israel. 

There are over 4,000 Walmarts across north America. Just imagine how many Muslims did not check where their dates are from. And that’s just Walmart. There are so many other stores who sell Israeli dates.

Please do not help the racist apartheid state, and help spread the word by reblogging this post.

If you or anyone in your family mistakenly bought Israeli dates, be sure to let the store manager know that you are returning them because they are Israeli and you do not want to be funding terrorism.
