I got this email yesterday from "Avaaz":

Dear friends across New York,

The horror in Gaza continues, but tomorrow, thousands of people across the globe are teaming up to hold demonstrations in key cities to protest the violence and call for action.

Can you join the rally in New York? It will start at 1pm at Columbus Circle, 58 & 8th Ave, and at 3pm we will march towards the UN. There will be an Avaaz staffer there with a banner that reads: HP: No tech for oppression! 1.6 million say pull out of the Israeli occupation, NOW!

Our campaign to call on major companies to divest from the occupation has reached unprecedented numbers! With over 1.6 million signatures, we’re getting the attention of the media, celebrities, and the companies themselves. Now let’s take to the streets and publicly show companies that their involvement with the Israeli occupation could cost their reputation and their profits.

With hope and determination,

Alice and the entire Avaaz team

We have to boycott all those companies whose involving in ir-relevant activities. We have lots of national companies which have good quality of merchandise.

What about Muslim countries that deal with Israel, they should be boycotted too.

Airlines from Qatar and UAE are selling their tickets in Israel, passengers travel by road or air from Tel Aviv to Amman then catch the Gulf carriers notably Etihad, Emirates and Qatar Airways to their respective bases Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha, so Israeli's travelling on their passports are transitting at Gulf airports, countries that have boycotted Israel and imposed overflight ban on any airline flying to/from Israeli airports not just Israeli airlines, is this not hypocricy? I'm not suggesting they lift ban or boycott but these indirect links and dealings with Isreal should not be happening, more so at state level.

Yes, and while we're at it, let's boycott Israel's medical technology and research efforts. Who needs it?

I appreciate the list, but can we realistically follow it, especially if we are living in the countries where these products/chains are quite common?

I think some of the people here may have missed the key reason why, say the Arab airlines, all these companies are doing so much business with Israel. Why Warren buffet poured his billions into the tool works there etc etc etc.

Perhaps none of you have noticed, but Israel has an impressive economy. What's even more awe inspiring is how much of a free market approach the legislation there has taken. Business thrives because of all this. For those of you who have read Lessons of History by Durant, there's a wonderful little part in it. He demonstrates how almost always the big nations win. Numbers are the dominating factor. Then a few pages later he accepts that occasionally there are exceptions to this rule - it is when a nation utilises it's intellect. When a nation values education. When it embraces science. When it incentives ingenuity. In particular he uses the example of Israel. That is why so many multi national companies (far more than the list given) are so inclined to put money in Israel. I mean have you seen their education stats, or read about the government incentives for Universities, they really are enviable. They are to be learnt from - not simply boycotted. Muslims did the once before, we call it the end of Islams golden age.

For those trying to genuinely boycott Israel, unlucky chaps but it's a futile effort. They are painfully good at providing the high quality services. You're going to have to give up everything from diamonds to pharmaceuticals. Anything that's technologically advanced (Apple, Microsoft, Intel etc all have research facilities there) or in any way a high skill field - Israel is involved. Be awed at these people's intellect - and how they romp the world with their minds.

All muslims have to do to support the oppressed is to follow Quran and Sunnah. Because we are drawn into mass consumerism, utilise riba based finance and insurance and following the kufaar in hoarding wealth therefore the Ummah is in the mess we find ourselves today. Read 'International Jew' by Henry Ford, fascinating read.

Well it doesn't take a genius to work that one out, if you rip the world of and undermine the whole society, you will be able to provide your children with the best education and all the opportunities that is required.

The problem is how do you strip the assets from the crooks and remove their ill begotten gains when they are the authorities that runs everything, in some ways you could say they have got us in a checkmate situation, but what do we do, except the consequences and let evil win, or are we better than that are we prepared to surrender to justice and fight to make a better world.

Why would you or any other people or government want to boycott such companies? And isn't that an Arab concern rather than an Islamic one? Such a viewpoint ignores all Arab Christians thus giving the false impression that Arab concerns are identical to Islamic ones.

I don't think this anti-Zionist notion is an Islamic one. Let us not forget that it was the United Nations that founded Israel which means that the majority of the countries in the world approved it.

What about Intel? I believe they support Israel aswell. Intel is a huge company that makes computer processors.

I guess I should state at this point that I myself could logically be considered a Zionist. I hold this belief for a variety of reasons. First it was the world itself, represented by the United Nations, who established the state of Israel. In my humble opinion it was an absolute necessity. Israel was established shortly after WWII and rightly so. Millions of Jews were systematically slaughtered by Hitler during WWII. The Jews who fled found no place to go and were turned away from various countries merely because of their ancestry. That is what is known as racism and I'll have no part in racism. Most Americans such as myself feel this way so you'll need to boycott America itself.
 
Does this mean I have no empathy for the Palestinians? No. Of course not. Effectively this is all about a people wanting a land to call their country. Yasir Arafat messed that up for them during the war. People were finally willing to sit down and negotiate with Arafat to settle the dispute. All that he had to do was call for a cease fire on suicide bombers. He refused and no arrangement could be made as a result.
 
All of this over a piece of land! Personally I perceive that as a lack of imagination. Individual Israeli's and Palestinians are either decent, kind, good people or rotten eggs based on the individual and not based on their race. I dislike people who would rather kill over land than sit down and try to come to an agreement that both sides can live with.
 
How can that be done? you ask? Simple. Declare what land the Palestinians want and what the Arab nation can accept. Then label that land Palestine. However also let the Israeli's do the same thing. If someone wishes to live in a certain place which was formally Israel then the agreement should require that they be allowed to do as if the land was Israel or Palestine.
 
What I'm saying here is that this is all about land, a place to call home. But the fight about it is racist and I abhor racism. So I am proposing a way around that. Sort of a double labeling of land, called Israel by some people and Palestine by another group. In America we have people of all races living next to each other, working side by side, and are friends and even marry each other. So it can happen.

Some questions about point no.15 of this list in which Nokia Company is listed.

It says.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15. NOKIA: Nokia have started to invest heavily in Israel. Nokia general manager Lars Wolf said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post (4 March 2001): 'We are really focusing on Israel from all perspectives, because we have an internal project called 'Project Israel ' which means we are looking at Israel from a networks perspective, from the perspective of Nokia Ventures Organization, and also from the perspective of Nokia Research Center.'

Nokia Research Center is on the lookout for Israeli start-ups with which it can cooperate.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. 1 If Nokia is heavily investing Millions of US$ in Isreal , how does it make Nokia a Pro-Isreali Company?

Q.2 Is the owner of Nokia an Isreali and a pro-Zionist?


I hope my questions are clear

I am surprised how can Muslims become so emotional and ignorant enough that they are even ready to boycott a Telecom and Technology related Company like Nokia which has mobile/cell phone subscribers in many countries.

Do you ignorant Muslims even know why Nokia Company is willing to invest Millions or Billions of US$ ?

Pls note that after Silicon Valley(IT Hub of USA) which is ranked as the top Hub of IT in the world , it is Tel Aviv city of Isreal which is ranked as the 2nd most famous IT hub in the world. It is known as the Silicon Valley of Isreal.

Most of the keypads of Iphones, cell phones and other smart phones which you see now in the world were actually invented in Silicon Valley(Tel Aviv) of Isreal.

Most of the laptop and computer screens which you see these days were also invented in Silicon Valley(Tel Aviv) of Isreal.

Isreal is a country which has one of the most hard working and intelligent people in the world and they have innovative and creative minds.

Isreali Government spends heavily on its R & D(Research & Development) sector where highly intelligent and creative students work and contribute to the Scientific and Technological development of their country.

The facebook which you use in your daily lives was actually founded by a Jew.

The internet which you see now and which you frequently use was also co-invented by a Jew.

Offcourse Nokia is a High Tech Company, so they will obviously invest in a country where they will find creativity,innovative skills and Research Centers.

So what do you expect from Nokia? Do you expect a Company like Nokia to invest in Muslim Countries of the world which are not just lacking in Research and Development but are also lagging behind Europe and West in literacy rate?

Pls go and check the recent survey ,their are more than 50 Muslim Countries in the world and pls compare their literacy rate with the literacy rate of Western Countries.

My question is what have Muslim countries specially Arab countries done in the last 200 years?

How many Muslim Countries in the world have R & D sectors? 

How many Muslim Countries in the world have Space Agencies?

How many Muslim and Arab countries have Public Libraries and Learning Centers?

How many Universities of Arab and Muslim Countries are listed in the top 500 Universities of the World in QS ranking?

How many Universities of Arab and Muslim Countries even listed in the top 300 Universities of Asia?
