Israeli Jews boycotting Arab businesses

articlemain

A survey of Israeli Jewish consumers found that 24 per cent are boycotting Arab businesses.

The telephone survey, conducted by Geocartagraphia, found that the figure had fallen since Operation Protective Edge, when that 29 per cent said they would boycott Arab businesses.

According to a report on Globes, the figures tally with a fall in sales at Arab supermarkets.

Yussef Askar, the owner of Big Zol, told the Israel business news website: “Our stores are in Jewish neighbourhoods.

"We have only one store in an Arab location, in Shefaram. Jews stopped coming to the Shefaram branch, but came back when the war was over.”
