Oopss.. boycotting

We have taken 40 years to build up a very big business in the Middle East, and we've seen it come to a complete stop in five days.

We have found ourselves in the middle of a game that we have no part in.


The remaining question, if we are going to boycott American, danish and maybe later EU* products , what the hell are we going to eat?

The thing now is American are calm about the boycotting because they will have room for their products, American cars will be soon the cheapest car Jordanian ever can buy as taxes and customs will go down to 0% and this applies only on American cars not EU's, I'm hunrgy and confused so better to go have dinner.



* For reason or another

  2. They hadn't the chance to taste them?
    Ohoud, lets me realistic, honestly I'm all with the boycott but If you are used to fine products you cannot boycott them easily especially when there is no good alternatives not to mention the risks of finding yourself having unhealthy food produced from within seel el zarga.

    The products you mentioned aren't necessary in our daily life, we are talking about products that we have always been using them namely Nido, Lurbak , Karolina?

  3. Jad, Ive been boycotting for quite a while all American products and I can tell you there are more than great alternative out there.

    Instead of NIDO you can use Halibouna.Its good quality and you cant really taste the difference

    Lurpak? Since when do arabs really eat butter? dont they use "Samneh" and "zayt" especially "Zayt zaytoun", its anyway healthier !you're saving yourself quite alot on cholestorol and future heart probelms.Or go without anything,thats what i personally prefere.

    Karolina? what about Hamoudeh? they've got great diary products not to mention all Saudi arabians ones.

    come on, lets not dramatize things.

    Not everything with a Barcode and American or danish flag, is sparkling quality, god knows what preservatives they add into these products.Go natural, the fresh diary products should be a better treat for every person ;)

  4. Why we should boycott ALL EU products!

    * The Glorious Quran is routinely desecrated by EU "artists" in the name of free speech (and "art").
    * Many Muslims are daily victims of racist violence in the EU everyday.
    * Muslims make up the highest groups of unemployed people in the EU.
    * Many EU government officials routinely equate Islam with terrorism.
    * Many EU states prohibit or inhibit the building of masjids.
    * Many EU states have closed Islamic schools (on grounds that they teach terrorism).
    * Many EU states uphold terminating Muslims who wear hijab to work.
    * There are plans in some EU states to pay Muslim immigrants to leave.
    * EU financially supports many of the Islamic world's most repressive regimes.
    What will it take for us to wake up? Why are we so madly in love with those who profess only hatred for us?
