Glasgow stores boycotting Israeli products

(JTA) — About 30 stores in Muslim communities in Glasgow, Scotland, are refusing to stock Israeli products.

The stores, owned by Muslim and Asian shopkeepers, are displaying signs stating that "No Israeli produce sold here," The Herald Scotland newspaper reported Sunday.

The campaign, which is focusing on Israeli produce, especially dates, is being led by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Friends of Al Aksa Glasgow.

Supporters are distributing flyers to shoppers saying that stores continuing to stock Israeli goods will be "named and shamed," according to the Herald.

The campaign is expected to go national.
