On Monday, 23th July, Dr. Mustafa Al-Barghouti, the leader of Al-Mubadara who has consistently emphasized the continuity of peaceful struggle, has called on Palestinians to boycott Israeli products - the profit of which is used to support the expansion of Israeli settlements and killing of Palestinians.
Al-Barghouti said in a press release that the second phase from the Mubadara campaign includes a visit to Palestinian stores in order to urge the people and merchants to boycott Israeli products.
He also stated that reducing the consumption of 10% of Israeli products would create a potential 150,000 job opportunities for unemployed Palestinians.
Al-Barghouti concluded, "It's unreasonable that the occupied nation supports its occupier by buying its products." He then stressed the need to support Palestinian products, while boycotting Israeli ones.
