Pro-Palestinian Group In Canada Calls For Boycott Of Sears Over Israeli Products

02/24/2012

(JTA) -- A pro-Palestinian group in Canada has called for a boycott against Sears because it carries Israeli products.

Canadians for Peace and Justice in the Middle East asked Sears last month to drop its Israeli products, including Ahava cosmetics and Keter Plastic, the Canadian Jewish News reported.

The group said in a letter to then-Sears president and CEO Dene L. Rogers that many of the firms’ “products are sourced and manufactured in illegal colonies located in the occupied Palestinian territories,” the newspaper reported.
