    What Israeli products are exported to the US that one would boycott? (not being a smartass, I honestly don't know of anything...)

    The only folks I know that are "boycotting" Israel, appear to be the govt.

    This is one that is in my industry.

    They make composite counter tops from quartz. It's an alternative to granite.

    Their factory is in Israel.

    Israeli companies are active in just about every industry, and are especially big in tech. Intel has 5 campuses in Israel doing R&D, development, and fabrication.

    I'm retired and work in the produce dept of a local Supermkt and from time to time see some fruit imported from Israel. Israel with specialized farming methods exports a fair amount of farm products to "Middle-East" countries(yes some not to friendly) and Europe.

    I'm in a similar boat, not knowing what products are being boycotted, nor why.
    I am willing to pick up a few Tavors if it will help them offset the loss from the Boycott. :supergrin:

    I feel dirty.

    What am I going to do with the 2400 rounds of IMI M855 I just bought? How was I to know I was supporting such a despotic nation?

    The only honorable course of action for me to take is to burn it. Going to take a while, though... given I'll be doing it one round at a time.

    :cool:
