Muslims boycott shops over Israel support claim
Allegedly the supermarket boycott was launched by a small group of Muslim activists in the Netherlands.AMSTERDAM -- This past weekend, a large number of Muslims in the Dutch immigrant communities received a mobile-phone text message calling for a boycott of Aldi and Lidl, two German-owned cut-price supermarket chains. The text messages claimed that the supermarkets were planning to donate a percentage of their profits to Israel. Both companies denied the rumour and no evidence to support the allegation has emerged.
Ibrahim Yerden, a cultural anthropologist who lectures at the University of Amsterdam, says the supermarket boycott was launched by a small group of Muslim activists in the Netherlands.
