Amazon sells apparel calling for Israel's end
'Make Israel Palestine Again' shirt slogan of terror-linked BDS movement
There’s a lot of talk about “hate speech” these days among the big Internet companies – from Apple to Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Amazon.
With that in mind, a T-shirt on sale at Amazon, not by a third-party provider but the retail giant itself, is raising some eyebrows – especially those of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
The slogan calls for the end of the one and only Jewish state – “Make Israel Palestine Again.”
The slogan is popular with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which is linked to terror-linked organizations such as the Council of National and Islamic Force in Palestine – a coalition that includes representatives from Hamas and other terrorist groups.
Similar shirts are available on Etsy.com.
The BDS movement aims to isolate Israel politically and economically using sanctions and boycotts of Israeli goods.
Amazon had no immediate comment on the product.
Like Apple, Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, Amazon relies on the expertise of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an extremist, left-wing group that works with all six of the Internet giants on determining which content is appropriate and which is not.
