Kristallnacht in the grocery aisle: SFJFF partners vandalizing Israeli products at Trader Joe's

In this video you will see members of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), an anti-Israel group which is supported by all three of the organizations involved in the SFJFF "Rachel" event -- the Rachel Corrie Foundation, the Jewish Voice for Peace, and the American Friends Service Committee, descend upon a local Trader Joe's grocery store, vandalize Israeli products, and try to bully customers into boycotting Israeli goods.




If you look carefully at the video, you will see that the slogan on the back on the black t-shirts that the vandals are wearing matches the slogan displayed by the JVP at the anti-semitic rally we reported on earlier.






These are the people that the SFJFF has allied themselves with. Charming, no?

  1. Shame on Trader Joe's staff for permitting these people to act as they did. They should have been required to pay for all the goods damaged, and if they refused to do so, the police should have been called. Destruction of property is not to be tolerated.

  2. Makes Trader Joe's employees look idiotic. Should have called the cops and had them arrested for destroying the packaging. But then again this is San Francisco.

    IDIOTS

  5. The great thing about this is Trader Joe's already bought it, so if anything, if they want to keep the food in stock, they'll have to buy more food from our Israeli friends. Hooray for the terd-muffins! HAhahaha stupid worthless jihadi loving idiots.

  6. Wasn't San Francisco, but Oakland (not that it wouldn't happen in SF...they probably just wanted to conduct their harassment campaign in a warmer climate).

  7. Thats Kate Rafael and Henry Knorr, both of Berkeley, and both involved with the International Solidarity Movement- how helpful of them to have filmed themselves violating Federal law by vandalizing food. We can use that in court

  9. Fascist bastards! They are cowards on top of everything. It was reported they were coming to Sacramento on Saturday. Most Jews here are in shul on Saturday. They want to make sure they have no opposition. Sheeeit, did you see how happy they were when they thought they had a little support from the impotent clerk? They're absolutely cluelss about history and what apartied really is. There were no blacks in the South African government. There's no restroom, bathroom or water fountain segregation in Israel. Arabs are in the Kenesset! They collaborate with Arab nations constantly. I hate these Liberal Nazi's

  10. Thanks for posting this. As a non-Zionist Jew who has long opposed Israel's brutal policies toward the Palestinians, policies of oppression and dispossession, I now know what to look for when I go to Trader Joe's and I will know what not to buy. If it says Made in Israel it has no place in my home or on my dinner table.

    When and if the time ever comes when Israel ends its illegal occupation and returns to the 1967 line I will be happy to buy Israeli products. But unless that happens I say NEVER AGAIN!

    Kudos to these brave people who put themselves on the line.

    BTW, your choice of the word Kristalnacht is anything but appropriate and you severely demean what Kristalnacht meant to the Jews of Germany.

  12. Anonymous "non-Zionist Jew": I've got a few questions for you:

    1) Since you say that you know what to look for when you shop at Trader Joe's, I assume that you live here in the United States. The United States is built on top of land seized from Native Americans. Since I am sure that you are true to your principles, and apply them equally in all situations, rather than singling out particular groups, am I correct in assuming that you understand that you yourself live on illegally occupied land? If you hold title to any such land that you putatively "own", you should immediately take steps to turn it over to its rightful owners. Please email pbenploni@gmail.com so we can help you surrender the property which you yourself must consider -- since you are of course fair-minded -- illegally obtained.

    2) You seem to be very careful about the provenance of the things you purchase. Do you make sure that you don't buy any products from China? From Venezuela? From Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country? From Russia? From Spain? From Great Britain? From the Arab Palestinian territories? After all, these countries and entities all either have horrendous human rights records or are considered to be illegal occupiers of land.

    Or is it true -- as I suspect -- that you are a two-faced phony who derives some sort of weird pleasure and feeling of moral elevation in spitting on your own people, but who is not really willing to live up to what you profess to be your principles?

    Please do be in touch about that land that needs to be returned to the Native Americans! After all, all politics is local!

  14. What the hell do you mean: "These are the people that SFJFF has allied themselves with." ???? You mean these T-shirted vandals were the ACTUAL film makers who made the Rachel Corrie movie? Like the "Kristallnacht" B.S., this is more nonsense. I am not defending this action. IMO it was vandalism. But to make the kind of association you are trying to do here is ridiculous.

  15. Supporters of BDS are a fringe movement - On Kristallnacht thousands of businesses and synagogues were vandalized, tens of thousands of people were rounded up, and dozens were killed.

    Comparing these silly antics to such horrific violence is ludicrous and disrespectful to Shoah victims.

    Let's not devalue our own tragic history to settle squabbles that are in comparison quite minor.

  16. It's better to destroy goods in Trader Joe's like these peace activists did than to destroy whole families, limb by limb with American bought F16's and phosphorous. America needs to wake up to the atrocities of the Israeli/Zionists illegal occupation. Wish that the Zionist posters on this board would have sympathy of the mothers of the 313 dead Palestinian children, rather than the West Bank herbs being boycotted in Trader Joes.

  17. How dare these people protest the dismemberment of infants, by breaking bottles in a shop!

    I am outraged at their lack of respect for the sanctity of private property!

  18. My Grandfather was arrested on Kristallnacht and taken to Dachau. Fortunately, he was released three months later and allowed to emigrate with his family to the U.S. If it weren't for good luck and the U.S. I might not be alive today. That is why I say NEVER AGAIN. Never again for Jews, never again for Palestinians, never again for anyone.

    And that is why I took part in what you so cavalierly call "Kristallnacht in the Supermarket". It was a small and probably ineffectual act to try and end the brutal subjugation of the Palestinians, something which must make all Jews' and all humans' hearts cry out. As a Jew and an American who owes his life to the compassion of this country I have an obligation to return that compassion to other oppressed people, including the Palestinians.

    In other words, you want Israel to be vulnerable to another Holocaust, like Nasser was setting up back in 1967. Well, this Christian Zionist is disgusted by dupes like you.
