Israeli Goods Left On The Shelf

I haven't knowingly purchased anything Israel has offered for many years now. I do go out of my way to check the country of origin sticker and if it says Israel, i put it back.
In 2009, the Israeli Manufacturing Association claimed that people like me, who boycott Israel goods has cost it a 5% drop in the Israeli export economy.
With Israeli exports being left on the shelves all across Europe, Binyamin Netanyahu has launched an attack on supporters of a boycott of Israel the way only Israel knows how, by shouting anti-semitism.
Binyamin Netanyahu has urged the country's friends to 'expose and outflank them by emphasising its high-tech achievements and global economic appeal'.
Might be a long wait considering America is Israel’s only friend and even they seem to be edging slowly away from it leaving it even further isolated.
Never one to miss an opportunity to remind everyone about the holocaust to make his point, the Israeli Prime Minister said the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement was intended to lead to 'the end of the Jewish state' and said that it was disgraceful that Europeans talked about boycotting Jews saying 'In the past, anti-semites boycotted Jewish businesses and today they call for the boycott of the Jewish state'.
'The founders of the BDS movement make their goals perfectly clear. They want to see the end of the Jewish state. They're quite explicit about it. And I think it's important that the boycotters must be exposed for what they are. They're classical anti-semites' he continued.
Thankfully shouting anti-semitic at anyone who disagrees with Israel’s actions nowadays no longer silences the opposition and instantly shuts down any criticism no matter how many times or how loud they say it.
All that happens is that the Israeli goods get left on the shelf.
