Israeli supermarket chains not boycotting Turkish products

At the request of Minister of Industry and Trade Binyamin (Fuad) Ben Eliezer, three major supermarket chains - Supersol, Blue Square and Rami Levy - have decided not to boycott Turkish goods (link in Hebrew).

The reasons given for not boycotting are a fear of making a bad situation worse, and the fear of endangering the investments that other businesses have in Turkey.

I'd bet on those investments being nationalized at some point anyway. It's too populist a move not to happen. And I'd look for the situation to get far worse. So long as Erdogan is reaping political benefits from inciting against Israel, he will continue to do so.

What could go wrong?

Fuad has been nothing but a capitulator and an appeaser ever since he entered politics decades ago.

His departure from public life is long overdue. Another first class failure in everything he's touched.

Personally, I don't buy Turkish products anymore. If the management of the chains chooses to keep them on the shelves - their problem.

Stupid Jews like Fuad Eliezer are one of the reasons why Israeli is humiliated over and over again and why nothing will ever change in Israel.

What could go wrong indeed
