Boycott Israeli Dates

Farming Injustice in the Jordan Valley

The Jordan Valley is considered the “bread basket” of a future Palestinian state because of its climate and water resources; however, Israeli settlers now control and exploit most of the land and resources there.

Boycott Alert: the main agricultural products included dates, grapes, peppers and fresh herbs. More than 60% of the dates from the Jordan Valley settlements are grown for export.

Therefore, when you see dates for sale in the supermarket, unless they are clearly marked as California dates, assume they are questionable and do not buy them. Hadiklaim is the main Israeli exporter of dates, a large share of which come from settlements, therefore, when in doubt, don’t buy it!
