Code Pink protest calls for Ahava boycott    Anat Shalev
31. We Don't Need Yankee Sympathy
What a disgrace for Palestinians and the Palestinian Cause to know that most recently a clique of Yankee females are supporting us by showing their naked bodies... ! Just ask Israel itself and the US Government about the numerous brazen violent attacks by Palestinians to know what a true state of war means !

32. :-)))
I spend over $2000 per year on Ahava products.Time to buy mooooore.

33. Such boycotts encourage supporters of Israel to buy more
There have been a number of such protests in the US and Canada that have simply mobilized supporters of Israel to buy more. One such protest against Israeli wines brought out the supporters who proceeded to clean out the store of Israeli wines and liqueurs. These nutjobs tried to intimidate the Trader Joes chain. They caused a little trouble in one store, but the chain refused to buckle and the protest fizzled. Good. These a**holes need to know they have little support here. Perhaps next time, someone should hand them a list of Israeli products and technologies they should, if they don't want to be hypocritical, commit to doing without. And, yeah, that is an ugly bunch. One will find MUCH better on any Israeli beach. There's a lesson here.

34. This gives the term mud-slinging new meaning
No amount of beauty product is going to help these hideous wenches with the ugly, bogus agenda. I'd LOVE to throw mud at these sows and watch them wallow in it, but not the kind from Ahava; I'm saving that good stuff for myself.

35. Arrested for public ugliness in 1st degree
Can I have a double "clunk" for these MAJOR economic and political supporters (possibly human females) of the ZerObama administration and Chevez of Venezuela.,Ortega of Nicaraugua, Zelayas of Honduras, the Catro brothers of Cuba and Marxist tyrant everywhere. Each and every one of these oogly rat fink bimbos should be indicted for the flagrant (but not fragrant) disgusting display of nasty bodies in a public place and not having the mandatory two paper bags in firmly place.

36. Ahava
Since when are the "fashionistas" experts on international geography and world politics? Not to mention Mideast history!

37. Code Pink
If you don't know, Code Pink founder and leader is a hardcore Communist Jewess, named Medea Benjamin. They provoke violent street protests, interrupts the Congress, invades private gatherings; their goal is to create public disturbances in order to promote their radical Bolshevik agenda.

38.  THESE PEOPLE ARE LOST AND CONFUSED !
WHAT DRIVES THESE PEOPLE TO PROTESTS AND TO SAY THINGS THAT ARE NOT TRUE ? I KNOW THAT WHEN THINKING PEOPLE DO ADVOCATE FOR CAUSES, THEY CERTAINLY MAKE SURE THAT HAVE ALL THE FACTS TO JUSTIFY WHAT THEY WERE ADVOCATING OR PROTESTING AGAINST. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LOOK MIS-INFORMED AND STUPID LIKE THESE PEOPLE IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO ? THEY SEEM NOT TO HAVE BOTHERED TO RESEARCH FOR THEIR " CAUSE " NOR MADE ANY REAL EFFORT AT HISTORICAL FACTS, GEOGRAPHICAL FACTS. THEIR PRONOUNCEMENTS AND THEIR ACTIONS CANNOT BE CLASSIFIED AS TRUE AND JUSTIFIED. IF THEY HAD DONE ALL THE RESEARCH THEY WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT THEY WERE IN THE WRONG. THEIR " CAUSE ' IS NOT " JUST " RATHER I WOULD CALL IT GROSSLY UN- JUSTIFIED BECAUSE IN THEIR HASTE TO PROMOTE THEIR CAUSE, THEY NEGELECTED ONE IMPORTANT FACTOR........THEY NEGLECTED THE TRUTH !. THE PENALTY FOR THEM IS BOMBARDING THEM WITH AHAVA PRODUCTS.

39. Code Pink
What morons! Mitzpeh Shalem is no more in the "West Bank" than downtown Washington, D.C. I'm buying Ahava products for all the women in my life!
Joe in LA ,   Los Angeles USA   (07.31.09)
40. WAY TO GO CODE PINK !!
STAY STRONG. thank you ...I will boycott AHAVA and tell all my friends too...
USA, ,   CALIFORNIA   (07.31.09)
41. yes Jake, I will buy Ahava now
these ladies need something to fill up their needs, emotional, political, and other. I didn't know about Ahava, but Jake is right, I will buy their products now.
tommy ,   New Joesey   (07.31.09)
42. no free publicity
why are you giving these ignorant crazies free publicity, it only encourages them more. Ignore them and they will stop. You're just helping perpetuate the Arab lies about the "brutal Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands"
Ira ,   NYC   (07.31.09)
43. Don't buy Ahava... Stay ugly !
These girls need definitely Ahava products , especially i they want to be pictured in bikini.
Yoni ,   Ashkelon   (07.31.09)
44. lets listen to these human murals.
funny they're protesting for the same people who will kill them for dressing like that in public.
(07.31.09)
45. I know, Sarah B - & irony of ironies!
just imagine if these, or any women would even be allowed to wear that attire - if Israel wasn't 'occupiying' (give us a break) the land they are carrying on about, where they to dare do. LOL!!! But they certainly can at the Dead Sea if they want - And I'm an Arab!!
Ibrahim ,   Tel-Aviv   (07.31.09)
46. Just the usual pro-Arab hippi whores, move along.
(07.31.09)
47. Who cares?
Who cares what those pathetic women say or do? Once again they have demonstrated their idiocy and ignorance. By the way, by the same token they should not buy any generic medications manufactured by Teva in ....Jerusalem. They should opt for the Pakistani versions......
Joanna ,   California   (07.31.09)
48. What do they know about Ahava (love)?
They probably cream themselves with whale oil. Anyway, let them howl. Ahava products are selling in the finest stores. After their stunt, I bet they asked for free samples.
Cynthia ,   USA   (07.31.09)
49. ahava
do they also protest products from china produced with slave labor - what about oil that comes from countries that produce terrorists or from countries that make women into second or third class citizens OR are the yjust onesided in their protests?

50. Ahava protest
I don't support these protests in any way but I presume all those commenting on the attractiveness or otherwise of these women are themselves incredibly good looking, which is still no excuse for these unpleasant misogynist attitudes. If these are the best arguments you can muster, I hope you never have to argue Israel's case abroad.
Ilana ,   netanya   (07.31.09)
51. I think Washington DC is meant
These are the type of women who will be moaning and whinging in their 40's that they were never able to find a husband, gee, I wonder why?
Larry Impfler   (07.31.09)
52. No. 50 Ilana
You're absolutely right. Any focus on their physical attributes (or lack thereof) is totally beside the point and smacks of misogyny. The problem with the women of Code Pink is that they're intellectually dishonest...and morally ugly, if you will.

53. code pink boycott
dont date these shrews
moron ,   galut   (07.31.09)
54. naked code pink
if these babes were arabs they would not be safe parading around half naked --even in plo land

55. No amount of Ahava products can fix those ugly faces...
...and they are also stupid to boot! I am always amazed how ugly and stupid hatred and recism can make somebody, and as expected, this heap of semi-nude imbeciles have no clue about anything except from barking racist slogans without understanding what they mean. What do you think would happen if they protested like this in Gaza? How would they fit the new Hamas "dress code"? What would happen if they protested in Teheran against the genocide AhemdineMad is doing now against his opposition? But they are of course nothing but a gang of spoiled and pimpled brats, doing a "deluxe" protest in a democratic country, against another democratic country which has done nothing to them and whose only "crime" is that it does not bend over and hand its heritage, history and ancestral lands to terrorists and bloodthirsty brutes bent on its destruction. But what do you expect from these "beauties" with only racism and hatred between the ears?

shaul ,   italy   (07.31.09)
57. ahava = THE BEST products
i would never use another product besides for ahava.. their products do wonders for the skin... judging by the pictures some of those girls should try them!!
nikki ,   uk   (07.31.09)
58. Mitzpe Shalem & Ahava
Since when is Mitpe Shalem located on occupied or even disputed territory? Known fact: it isn't. All the more reason to support Mitzpe Shalem products and boycott any store that decides to remove them.

59. #27 - Frank - Pals tried to block Dead Sea restoration
You are very right - the Israelis and Jordanians, both who have resorts and Dead Sea cosmetics companies (Ahava is way better in quality). The Pals, who were invited to be a part of the plans, were blocking it because "Israel was to benefit from it" They did the same thing when efforts were made to make the Dead Sea a World Heritage Site, for the same reason. And of course they don't value the Dead Sea as Arafat continually tells Jews to go drink from it (a curse in Arabic).

60. Ahava's exploitation:tip of the iceberg
“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” “We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.” -- David Ben-Gurion quotes (Polish born Israeli Statesman and Prime Minister (1948-53, 1955-63). Chief architect of the state of Israel and revered as Father of the Nation, 1886-1973
