PA Boycott of Israeli Products May Boost Rami Levy Supermarkets’ Sales to Arabs

The PA has ordered the destruction of Israeli products found in Arab-owned stores.

Stores under Palestinian Authority control have officially begun boycotting Israeli products this week.

Among the Israeli companies that PA supervised stores will boycott are Tnuva, Strauss, Elite, Osem, Prigat and Yafora. Previous calls to boycott Israeli products didn’t fare too well, as Arabs are loathe to give up on Israeli quality food products.

This time around, the Palestinian Authority plans to destroy any remaining Israeli products found in PA supervised stores by next week – which means they’ll be sending around their Fatah enforcers to make sure that stores comply with the decree.

The PA says the boycott is in response to Israel withholding the transfer of tax funds, which Israel decided to do after the PA took unilateral anti-Israel steps at the International Criminal Court and the UN Security Council.

Without the tax money, the PA can’t pay its 150, 000 civil servants, security personnel and captured terrorists sitting in Israeli jails.

The Rami Levy supermarket chain, which is very popular among Arabs from the Palestinian Authority, may very well pick up a lot of new business as a result.

Rami Levy, known for its discount prices, has stores in central locations throughout Judea and Samaria, and one can always see Settlers and Arabs working and shopping there,  side by side.

Some 70% of processed foods sold in the PA come from Israel, though those sales make up less than 3% of the market for the Israeli companies.

The Palestinian Authority also doesn’t actually have anywhere near the production capacity to supply enough milk and dairy products to their population without the Israeli company Tnuva.

Despite PA threats, Arabs under PA control haven’t given up their lucrative jobs working for Jews, who pay them two to three time more than what they can get within the PA. The same Arabs are not about to stop giving feeding their children dairt products.

Those same Arabs aren’t about to give up their Israeli Bamba either.

All the PA has done is shoot themselves in the foot… again.
