Leftist vandals of Israeli goods discriminate against the rights of both producers & Trader Joe's customers

European Court of Human Rights finds that calls to boycott Israel or her products are discriminatory and punishable.
On the same day that the Hizb ut Tahrir of America Conference demonstrated that the enemies of Zionism are Jihadists, the far-left emerged online, revealing the video of their vandalizing Trader Joe's products made in Israel on June 20th, which they called National Don't Buy Into Apartheid Day.





While Trader Joes' prepared for a chain-wide alert, only S.F. Bay Area and Sacramento stores experienced vandalizing. The vandals defaced store merchandise with their propaganda stickers, making them unsellable. Trader Joe's store management were passive to the dispoiling of their merchandise and did not demand payment from the leftists for it. Despite warnings by employees to refrain from in-store videographing, the vandals filmed their encounter with the manager who did not stop their filming - and even wished them luck with their campaign to stop Trader Joe's to carry products from Israel.

Update 20 July:  On Thursday, the Council of Europe's European Court of Human Rights upheld a French ruling that it was illegal and discriminatory to boycott Israeli goods, and that making it illegal to call for a boycott of Israeli goods did not constitute a violation of one's freedom of expression

The court held the view that France's former Mayor of Seclin, Jean-Claude Fernand Willem, who initiated a boycott of Israeli goods was not convicted for his political opinions, "but for inciting the commission of a discriminatory, and therefore punishable, act. The court found that interfering with the former mayor's freedom of expression was necessary to protect the rights of Israeli producers.
