A Miami supermarket chain said it was investigating reports that Jewish products at a Miami store were vandalized on its shelves.

“Please note that our store manager has been notified [of the damaged products] and they are investigating into this situation,” the Publix supermarket chain tweeted on Tuesday.

The supermarket’s announcement came after a photo of a Kedem product apparently from a North Miami Beach store was posted to Twitter, with a mock-up “Occupation Facts” sticker pasted on the front. Kedem is a Kosher foods product, but it is not Israeli.

The label featured a call to “boycott this product,” and among the “ingredients” listed were “collective punishments, massacres of innocent civilians, mass arrests.”

Proponents of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement say their call for the boycott of Israeli food products, among other things, aims to put economic pressure on Israel over its policy toward the Palestinians.

But many have argued that the BDS movement, as it is commonly referred to, is rooted in antisemitism and seeks to delegitimize the Jewish state.

Also on Wednesday, U.S. lawmakers introduced a bill condemning a boycott of Israeli universities.

Editor’s note: This article was corrected to say Kedem is a U.S. food company, not Israeli.

  • Boycott israel means less support for aipac meas israel will have less power in my government. America for the people by the people not america for israel by aipac.

      what pretty prose…..too bad there isn’t a scintilla of sense to it.

    • Bill P.

      If it wasn’t for Israel, there would be no democracies in the Mid-East. We would have the murders, riots,civil wars, and kleptocracies of the Arab Spring for the last 65 years. The BDS people advocate against Jews and Israel. What are they advocating for? The only thing I can think of is nihilism.

    • eve

      Do those wo responded to this idiot’s post: Don’t bother – a moron remains a moron, and, by definition, will never understand reason.

  • Yonit Gefen

    Great to see people fighting back. Great start.
    Next order of business: send a strong message. Don’t allow
    anyone to get away with doing nothing or little.

    What was not done here..
    – correct description. This is not damaged merchandize.
    Tell it like it dud. Show a picture of the result, not
    the product
    – check your cameras and ID the victim
    – call the police
    This is a lot better than nothing but it is CYA cover your tuchis response to genocide

    • Barbie

      It’s lies. 800,000!jews were displaced from Arab countries.

  • Hard to understand . Why would someone here try to replicate what happened in France several weeks ago.

    Makes no sense to me.

  • ric b

    Publix should check the tape in the aisle camera,Call the police.There is hate crime and theft charges.They are the largest and perhaps most desirable supermarket in the state.They ban thieves from shopping.

  • sara rifka

    thanks for the update or continuity of evil……the display of ignorance, hatred and destruction i sense is still at its beginning and the payment of corporation, groups etc seem to still be dipping their hands into their pockets to pay others to destroy and highlight their hatred for JEWS….when i see a large group doing this , all at once, in several places then i will say…..HATRED IS MOVING HIGHER….

    THE ONLY THING THESE THINGS DO IS…..ALLOW ME AND OTHERS TO REMOVE OURSELVES FROM EVEN COUNTING OR WANTING TO BE PART OF THIS OR OTHER COMMUNITIES….

    IT ALSO SHOWS THAT WHO AND WHAT YOU BELIEVED TOLERABLE AND FILLED WITH FRIENDSHIP AND CARE IS AGAIN A MASK OF TOLERANCE TOWARDS ‘JEWS’….GET IT.

    I READ…I WRITE…..BUT, I ALEADY HAVE MADE MY MIND UP…….NOT INTERESTED IN TAKING PART IN THEIR WORLD OR THEIR HAND OUTS OF ‘ ITS WAS NOT ME’ ATTITUDE.

    BUT THEN, THE GREATER PART REMAINS STUCK IN ‘WHAT DO I DO….WHAT CAN I DO…..ITS ONLY ME…..I’M ALL ALONE ETC

    GET OFF OF IT ALL……LIVE WITHIN AND WITHOUT WHILE STILL PLANNING YOUR TRIP FROM THIS ‘HELL’

    These idiots are really scraping the bottom of the barrel. They know that their “campaign” has been unsuccessful in harming Israel, so they have to resort to this cheap shot. I only wish some of them could go to Israel and see for themselves how many “collective punishments, massacres of innocent civilians, and mass arrests” really take place in Israel and ask themselves how many take place in Iraq, Syria, Iran, Yemen, and a few other places I could name. While they are there, they should ask some Israeli Arabs if they would rather be living in some of these countries.

    Sainsbury’s please note. I have found dates for sale with anti-Israel stickers on them in Sainsbury’s Islington. I did not have time to report the incident to the manager but I am keeping my eye out! How about boycotting products of REAL culprits, such as Iranian dates? Or the World Cup in Qatar?

    • Alan

      Then you should boycott Sainsburys as they are owned by Qatar. As are many buildings in London including the Shard.

  • isaac glick

    easy way to fight this. whenever you see this sticker attached, buy as much of the product as you could afford.

  • Lestibournes

    Is Kedem really an Israeli company? I know it as a Kosher food supplier in the US, and never heard of it anywhere in Israel. Unless you are correctly using the term Israeli to mean “someone that belongs to the historical nation of Israel”, then it seems you should be calling this instead vandalism against Jewish products.

  • Julian Clovelley

    Look at your own words:

    “But many have argued that the BDS movement, as it is commonly referred to, is rooted in antisemitism and seeks to delegitimize the Jewish state.”

    Can you see it? It is in your own words:

    “The Jewish State” – So there is no such thing as an “Israeli” unless you are Jewish? – Christians, Druze, Arabs, Palestinians, in Israel – let me ask you, are they de facto “Stateless”

    And you wonder that BDS is upset (and I don’t even support it by the way)

    • Lestibournes

      Israel is the nation-state of the Israeli (aka Jewish) people. Individuals have homes, tribes have territories, nations have countries. Israel allows members of other nationalities to dwell within it with full citizenship, while maintaining its national identity and character.

      Do you wish to deny the Israeli (“Jewish”) people the right to exist as an independent nation in their homeland? Why single out the Israeli people, out of all the other people in the world? Perhaps you should campaign for Japan to stop being Japanese?

  • Linda Rivera

    “boycott this product,” and among the “ingredients” listed were “collective punishments, massacres of innocent civilians, mass arrests.”

    Filthy Muslim liars and their Leftist allies would never be able to get away with their dirty propaganda and demented lies if they did not have the full support of the Muslim-controlled UN, the EU Monster, Western leaders and media who sold their souls and sold out Israel and Jews to global Islam.

    John Adams, second president of the United States said of Jews: They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a Bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily, than any other Nation ancient or modern.”

    The Jews and Israel are hated because they are good. Evil cannot tolerate good.

  • Fritz Kohlhaas

    There is no doubt: BDS is pure anti-Semitism!!!

  • J Brooks

    so they are really going to start their nastiness here now.
    They need to understand this IS NOT EUROPE! They can’t come into our super markets and destroy merchandise like in England. America and Americans will not tolerate their vandalism and destruction of property. We have laws and law enforcement!

  • Clearly done by liberal Jews aka antisemites: No difference

  • Natan

    Lets see how these antisemetic thugs try to communicate with each other when cell phones that originated in Israel
    are on the boycott list !!!!

  • Shofar Shogood

    I think they’re only putting the BDS (bondage and discipline?) stickers on food products they are convinced contain the blood of ritually-slaughtered gentile children. Better that than the extremely high level of insect parts found in practically every food product imported from Lebanon, Iran, etc.

  • Steve Loeb

    THIS is clearly being done by those suffering from a mental disorder – and they are. “Palestinianism” – “Palestinianism” is a mental disorder and left untreated can metastasize into a more serious mental disorder like Jihadism or severe anti Semitism which can become violent and even lead to murder

    “Palestinianism” is also one of the “gateways” to complete radicalization

    • beol evets

      Ha HA, what a bunch of crybabies. go back to europe. every one is sick of your shit. always the victim, even as you are expanding and destroying the real descendants of Jacob, and inhabitants of the holy land
      .

      • sandra borr

        beol evets: I was born in the US. My parents were born in the US. My father fought in the US army. And, thanks to antisemitism – before Hitler – my grandparents were born in the US. You want us to go back to Europe where Jews don’t have a fighting chance? You can go to hell.

      • Lestibournes

        One does not “go back” to foreign lands, but to one’s home, and for Israelis, that is Israel, which is Jacob’s second name, BTW, and the Arabs are descendants of Ishmael, Jacob’s uncle. Perhaps before telling other people what they should do you should cure yourself of ignorance, or you will continue to be a disgrace to white colonists everywhere.
