Throughout this week and in the run up to Christmas a group of activists, inclusive of ISM-ers have been staging a small evening picket outside the Ahava store in central London's Covent Garden. The Israeli store sell cosmetic items which are sourced illegally from the Dead Sea and processed in the illegal settlement of Mitzpe Shalem.
One picketer, a Jewish activist, was subjected to anti-semitic abuse, with the claim that the Jews killed Jesus.
Check out the report and video footage of the incident here http://www.ism-london.org.uk/2521
ISM condemns the racists abuse, and is shocked that an Israeli shop would employ someone who is anti-semitic to sell their products.
Protests at the shop by human rights activists have always been non-violent and non-aggressive and this kind of racist abuse is unnacceptable under all circumstances.
