At least there is ONE country that has the balls to take a stand.

So they're not going to buy iPhones? Many of the parts are made in Israel

LOL! We've got dual-citizenship wielding congressmen. Entrenched is an understatement.

i think Iceland is the one country to always be first to realize and act.

Didn't they kick out major banks two years ago or something like that?

That would be great if the whole world followed Iceland's lead. South Africa ended apartheid primarily because of boycotts and economic sanctions, look at the festering shithole it is today. It's about time these heebs get a taste of the diversity they've been forcing on us for the last 50 years. Either that or they'd have to become the next North Korea.

South Africa didn't have any political clout in America. Criticise Israel and you're called antisemitic

Tides are turning, I hope so at least. People have negative opinions of just about everything the Jews control in the US, especially media.

It is a conspiracy to stop Israel from oppressing and murdering Palestinians because they have the wrong race.

Iceland's policy not really "hidden" agenda. But whatever.

Israel's policy of treating everyone else like 2nd or 3rd class person is something else.

Thought the mods were deleting your post.

Why is this under conspiracy? I mean...it's out in the open, it's a simple boycott....where is the conspiracy?

The headline is very misleading (here and in the article itself). It was only the municipality of Reykjavík (the capital of Iceland) that's boycotting Israeli products from the list of items they purchase for its own needs.

The country isn't boycotting anything, and individuals are free to do what they please.

Example set by the capital, the odds are the rest of the country will follow.

Iceland can be a bit different from other countries in that way. I'm really not expecting the rest of the country to follow suit.

Mayor of Reykjavík Dagur B. Eggertsson announced today on Icelandic national broadcaster RÚV that Reykjavík City Council will cancel its previously-announced boycott of Israeli products, explaining that the city will now only boycott goods produced in occupied territories.

Too bad but still a step in the right direction. Other European nations have also done this.

Thanks for the update by the way.

Is this all of Iceland or just Reykjavik though? The headline says Iceland but the article only speaks about the Reykjavik city council.

Only Reykjavik, but the odds are that it will slowly become the whole country, it is the capital and largest city of Iceland after all.

I'm not to sure about that. The municipal government has been taking a lot of flack for doing this.
