"Supporters of the campaign to boycott Israel are once again targeting Canadian retailers, and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) has launched a counter-campaign.
The latest call for a boycott of Israeli products is aimed at Sears Canada.
A group called Canadians for Peace and Justice in the Middle East (CPJME) has asked the retail giant to drop several Israeli-made products that it carries, including Ahava cosmetics, Keter Plastic and Stanley Israel products. The group says that many of the firms’ “products are sourced and manufactured in illegal colonies located in the occupied Palestinian territories,” it wrote in a Jan. 17 letter erroneously addressed to former Sears president and CEO Dene L. Rogers."
