Be my Palestine

Apologies to Meaders and anyone for the lack of clarity here. This is an EI report on a Valentine's Day event by the anti-Zionist gay group: QUIT.

Electronic Intifada. pulls it out of the bag again with this write up of QUIT's campaign against Estée Lauder for supporting Israel's ethnic cleansing:

Eternally Mine joins Estee's signature scent Occupation. and Apartheid For Men. in the group's killer product line. Also on hand were special editions of Atrocity Cover Up, Bloody Hand Cream, Take It Away Total Village Remover. and the classic condom, "The Wall" (nothing gets past it)....
QUIT! is targeting cosmetics giant Estee Lauder with its boycott Israel message, because heir Ron Lauder is president of the Jewish National Fund, which maintains and implements Israel's discriminatory land policies.

Two weeks ago, Israel's attorney general determined that all land managed by the Israel Lands Administration, including land owned by the Jewish National Fund, must be marketed without discrimination or limits including to non-Jews. According to the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, "The state prosecutor's office believes it will not be able to defend before the High Court the policy of allocating Jewish National Fund land to Jews only."

Days later, news agencies reported, " The Jewish National Fund and the Finance Ministry are discussing ways to separate the JNF from the state, to allow it to continue selling land to Jews only.!
