Action at UlTA Store Regarding Selling of Ahava Products Saturday, November 6th 2010 2 pm - 4 pm
Protest Action at ULTA Store, Arlington Highlands Mall
4000 Retail Connection Way, Arlington, Texas (Corner of Matlock and Hwy I20)
Date: Saturday, November 6th, 2010, 2-4 P.M.
The North Texas Boycott, Divest, and Sanction of Israel Campaign is a group of residents in the North Texas Area who have come together in this 43rd year of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land to support the Boycott of Israeli Goods. Ahava products are manufactured in the Palestinian West Bank by Jewish settlers, forcibly and illegally, on land that does not belong to Israel. These products are sold at ULTA stores. We are urging ULTA stores to cease selling Ahava products.
In 1967, the Israeli army took military control of the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Since that time the government of Israel has built settlements, roads and other infrastructure for its Jewish citizens, using land and resources stolen from the Palestinian people. This situation continues, unchallenged by Western governments, despite Israel’s being in violation of international humanitarian law and over 60 UN resolutions.
Israel daily destroys Palestinian lives, livelihoods and homes; it continues to build its illegal colonies and separation wall on stolen land; it continues to control Gaza while slicing the West Bank into Bantustans, separating Palestinian families from their schools, places of work and agricultural land; it denies Palestinian refugees their right to return and operates a form of racism in many respects worse than the South African apartheid system. Its policies of intimidation and humiliation aim to destroy Palestinian hopes of statehood . Israeli businesses export freely from Palestinian land while the Palestinian economy is on its knees as a result of the occupation. We believe that this constitutes a betrayal of human rights traditions. It inflames hatreds in our unstable world and renders impossible the achievement of a just peace for Israelis and Palestinians. We therefore support the existing campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions to enforce Israeli compliance with international law. We call on all U.S. residents who are inclined to support the State of Israel unconditionally to think critically about what Israel does in our names. We call on every ethical consumer, of any faith or none, to refuse to support the Israeli economy for as long as the illegal occupation and exploitation of Palestine persists.”
