because we're not boycotting these goods because they are jewish-made, but because they fund violence by the israeli state, you troll. just because you cry "anti-semitism!" doesn't make it so.
D-uh

D-uh -- those numbers don't mean anything.
These numbers mean a lot!

The two or three first digits of the barcode show the country of the industry. It's not equal to the "made in" product id.
eg: the products of adidas write "made in Vietnam", but the barcode number starts with 4-0-3 which means that the company is german.
The barcode number is the easiest way to recognize the country of a product. I'm attaching the catalogue of the barcode numbers for each country.
don't do anything blindly,.....ever. (english)

hey guys,
think about what you're doing first before commenting or doing it first. personally, i've been following the problem in the middle east and basically, no other government other than the israeli government has worsened the situation... nevermind the fact that they've started it in the first place. of course these facts are no secret, feel free to go and research this on any viable history site or other resouce. by boycotting the products made in isreal we're decreasing the economic power of isreal to buy more american war helicopters, missiles, nuclear warheads and chemicals weapons. Needless to say what the effect of this action will be. i repeat, i have nothing against 'jews' and i'm not an 'anti-semite' because i know many and i love many of them. No one nation is completely evil, but the government that slaughters others only for the wellbeing and establishment of its power must not exist and i openly declare my utter hatred and despise for all in that government. thanx. keep up the good work.
