"Boycott Israel" Epic Fail as liquor store sells entire inventory of Israeli wine in 30 minutes
Israel Matzav ^ | April 7, 2009 | Carl in Jerusalem

Posted on 04/07/2009 3:57:03 PM PDT by Alouette

Pro-Palestinian activists who picketed a Toronto liquor store got more than they bargained for as customers swarmed the store and bought out the entire inventory of Israeli wine in 30 minutes.

The Canadian version of "Freedom Riders" motorcycle club was also present.

If they start any of this “boycott Israeli products” stuff here, I’m going out of my way to do the opposite.

An “Epic Fail” indeed!
That is a LOVELY story!
Just the way to answer this pathetic “boycott”.
I think they may have learned something from this;
unfortunately, it may turn them toward violence next time, which would be no surprise, since it’s what they’re good at.

Reminds me of the time the gay activists got on the case of orange juice from Florida when the growers association started advertising on the Rush Limbaugh store. They announced a boycott of some super market here in the state and at the appointed time a bunch of people, way more than the number of those there to protest, arrived and promptly bought ALL the orange juice from Florida in the store!

That was the last time THAT tactic was tried in the Sunshine State!

I hope that they call for a boycott on tomatoes from Israel. I buy them anyhow, and I’d be certain to get a few extra for the cause.

I just watched the first video.

I am made sick by seeing terrorist supporters in my country, but I am buoyed by the actions of the Jewish Canadians.

Thanks for posting.

I don't know, I drink beer.

Anything the Israelis do, they do well, however, so I bet it's good. (For wine.)

Israeli wine is awesome! The Golan Heights wines are especially excellent. It's not your grandmother's Manischevitz.

If it’s not snow, it’s allergy season.
Aren’t the seasons great?

We had spring last week, snow this week, and spring expected again by Friday. Fitting, eh?

The daffodils are holding up. ;-)

“LOL. I dunno about Israeli wine though. Is it drinkable?” Not only is it drinkable, some of it is top notch, comparable with the products of vineyards in Spain, Italy and France.

I gotta wonder...Geddy Lee right there in Toronto...Jewish... parents in the holacaust...if he took part in any of this. His wine collection alone is over 50,000 bottles.

I second Alouette’s statement. I had some GREAT wine when I visited Israel, and I had some excellent beer as well.

Good thread.

For us, I've been having fun w/unemployment, working one week, off the next.

Also, Mrs. Springman was in a car accendent, broke her right hand.

Well at least she was driving the pick-up, my car, I don't want to think about it.
