boycott 4:

Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem..

Our next boycott will be to boycott vulgar talk, swearing or any behaviour that Allah will not be pleased with..

Many of us, most importantly myself, have a tendency of using certain words when we are angry, frustrated or upset about anything…

Many of us, even if we’re not angry, but rather as a habitual speech, use words which are rather rude and causes the displeasure of Allah..

This includes all kinds of swearing words, or hate speech…

Nabi(S.A.W) is reported to have said in a hadith to the effect that ‘a muslim is one from who’s hands and tongue other muslims are safe’

As mums, we often find ourselves frustrated at our kids behaviour and tend to use derogatory words as if its supposed to calm us down or take away the frustration we are feeling…

As wives, we find ourselves raising our voices at our husbands when we want to be heard or want to make our point clear…

As youth we find it ‘cool’ when amongst our friends to use words such as shut-up, stupid, idiot etc…

However whenever we say something or do something as a muslim, we need to reflect and ask ourselves, would I use those very same words or behave in the same way if there was an elderly person or an aalim in our presence…?

Well the Greatest… Allah is right infront of us at all times, should we not control ourselves and talk in the best manner?especially when no-one is watching us in the privacy of our homes…

It has also been mentioned to the effect that the best of you are those who are best in character..

Let us strive to be the best in character inshallah, firstly to please Allah and secondly to be role-models to our kids and those around us and thirdly because only if we change ourselves, will Allah change the conditions around us..

Note that I have chosen this specific sin/act first as I feel it is something that I seriously need to reflect on for myself…so please make dua that Allah gives me the ability to change this first and then everyone else who submits their names below..

boycott 3:

“Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem”
-in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful-

Our next boycott will be woolworths…I know that there are many that have long ago started boycotting woolworths, you are more than welcome to submit your names towards this boycott inshallah…

WOOLWORTHS has assured it’s Jewish clients that it will NEVER stop stocking Israeli products. And that’s aside from all the other funds it channels into Israel through the SA Jewry. In the light of the ongoing massacre by Israel, how can we even say that our money spent at Woolworths is not killing Palestinians?

When you put that food you bought from Woolworths on your table, remember that it’s tainted with Palestinian blood.

Woolies rubbish rumours of going Gaza on Israel

Forget the bumph that was spread like a virtual virus on Jewish social media today. Woolworths have come out loudly and proudly apolitical, as always, and have moved to stifle mischievous rumours that they are planning to stop carrying Israeli products. It’s all nonsense, Woolies told SAJR Online today – and they have even posted it on their corporate website to allay any concerns that the community may have. Read the real story. Click the link to their website. Read all about it…
by ANT KATZ | Jul 29, 2014

SA Jewry almost platzed today after all the social media to-ing and fro-ing about Woolworths stopping to import Israeli products went completely viral. Things got so hot, in fact, that the SA Zionist Federation even issued two notices assuring the community that this was not the case.

Sure they have had demands from unions and the EFF to stop carrying Israeli goods, Woolworths’ Corporate Press Office admitted to SAJR. But they hadn’t given the “demands” a second thought.

“Less than 0.1 per cent of our food is sourced from Israel,” says Woolworths. That’s a far cry from the percentage of their business they do with SA Jewry, although that never factored into their decision. “Woolworths has no political affiliations,” they stated emphatically.

And, as a sign of good faith to the Jewish community, Woolies have posted the following statement on their corporate website:

‘Sourcing from Israel’

“We can confirm that we have not stopped stocking Israeli products in Woolworths stores.

“Woolworths has no political affiliations. We respect our customers’ right to make individual purchasing choices, which is why we clearly label every product’s country of origin and fully comply with government guidelines on product from Israel.

“Less than 0.1% of our food is sourced from Israel,” reads their notice.

Panic set in community

Woolworths confirmed to Jewish Report that their customer support lines were inundated with calls from Jewish customers today – although they have no idea where the rumours started.

So rattled was SA Jewry by the concerns that the SA Zionist Federation issued two statements to their mailing lists and the media today reaffirming Woolworths’ position.

Letter to the editor

SAJR reader Joane Frank submitted the following letter today, Tuesday, which is representative of the numerous enquiries that SAJR received:

This morning my daughter reported to me that she heard the DJ on the Morning Mayhem show of ChaiFM state that Woolworths will no longer be stocking Israeli goods.

This naturally upset me and I called the Woolworths loyalty card department to ask them what their records reflect that I spend.  I didn’t hear the name of the person who took my call, but he happily stated that my average spend is some R8 000 per year.  This was then the amount, I informed him, that I will no longer be spending.  I stated that I have been shopping at Woolworths for over thirty years and if it is indeed true that Woolworths will no longer stock Israeli goods then I will return my loyalty card and never set foot in the store again. 

Now I may not have the conversation word perfect because I wasn’t taking notes, but the following was clear: the Woolworths man on the phone spoke with knowledge of the issue and responded that Israeli goods only make up about 1% of Woolworths stock and that Woolworths are considering the position.  Considering the position?

Does this mean that Woolworths are just contemplating not stocking Israeli goods?  And why?  My daughter called the Woolworths Customer Service line to be told that the issue is “under review” which infers a decision was already taken or that they are indeed contemplating such a decision. 

Following my inquiries to the Chevrah Kadisha, Tania at the Chev called me back to say she had spoken to a Woolworths “PR” at the head office who said this is all just a rumour.

Well was it?

As ChaiFM had broadcast the news I assumed this wasn’t just on rumour and requested their comment. Kathy Kaler responded that she spoke to the head of Woolworths marketing who put her on to the Woolworths Media liaison who confirmed that in fact Woolworths will no longer be stocking produce from Israel, and that they may overturn this when they see the reaction from the community but as it stands, there is no Israeli produce in the stores.

I’m still not shopping at Woolworths any more until I hear the company’s satisfactory stance on the matter, especially in view of the overt hostilities being expressed towards the Jewish community during this latest Israeli ordeal.  Whether we hear it as crude threats or masterful public relations, we should take care to understand the underlying sentiment.   

There are a growing number of distressing anecdotes about local commercial entities who are now refusing to sell or give services to Jews. Could the Jewish Report encourage members of the community to report these incidents for publication so that the safety implications could register on the communal scale? This would also help give the lie to the we’re-not-anti-Semitic-we’re-only-anti-Israel agenda.

Many people had stopped buying ANYTHING with a barcode starting 729, so Israel have changed it to 871, if you don’t want to support Israel in their Genocide of Palestine, don’t buy with this bar code. The old one is below

boycott 2:

Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem..

Its sad to see that we have only 17 supporters who will boycott pick n pay even though we are aware of their supporting the apartheid state of israel…

Do know that the media has fed incorrect information to the masses and many believe that israel is doing no injustice whatsoever…we as muslims however, no better than to believe what has been fed to us by the media…

Our next boycott will begin and that is to boycott ‘DISCHEM’

Please read the attachment and you will find how sick they really are..but I must agree on something that they mention….”We have to be consistent with what we do”

As muslims, we say that we want to boycott this or that…but after a few weeks when everything has calmed down, we forget and go back to supporting these people…

The muslm community in south africa is large and we can make a difference together..
