I guess we showed them

This is getting too ridiculous: after fighting with Norway and boycotting Sweden, Israelis are now mad at Turkey, following some TV show there and a few remarks by their PM that could hint he has some sympathy towards the Palestinians (Anti-Semite!).

The popular coffee shop chain I’lan’s has decided not to sell Turkish coffee anymore. Director of marketing for Ilan’s, Michal Shteg, told Ynet that:

“Like all Israelis, we were shocked to see films that showed IDF soldiers allegedly shooting kids. We believe that everyone can contribute in his own way, and that’s our modest way.”

Calm down, Naomi Klein. At this rate, Israelis will take care of the international boycott themselves.

    If seeing footage of IDF soldiers shooting children bothers Israelis, maybe the IDF should stop shooting children.

    I saw a trailer of this show, for shure they dont show the soldiers in a nice way. But it looked just like another random action-war clishe. only the cast is different.
