If you oppose the Arab Boycott of Israel; If you oppose Holocaust deniers; If you oppose conspiracy theories that America perpetrated 9/11 along with the CIA and the Mossad and the Jews . . .
THEN, DON’T SHOP AT BARNEY’S OR LOEHMANN’S.
Today’s Wall Street Journal finance section reports that Dubai’s government investment arm, Istithmar, is finalizing a purchase of Barney’s New York, the luxury goods retailer that was founded by Jews and has locations nationwide. The paper also notes that Loehmann’s, the designer clothing discounter also founded by Jews, is partially owned by Istithmar. As I’ve noted before, Loehmann’s was previously owned by Arcapita a/k/a First Islamic Investment Bank (the Saudi-owned, Bahraini-based extremist investment company which owns Caribou Coffee and about which I’ve written extensively).
As I’ve noted on this site so many times, Dubai practices anti-Semitic apartheid. It officially and openly engages in the Arab Boycott of Israel. Israelis, those with a stamp from Israel on their passport, and most Jews cannot enter Dubai. And the governments of Dubai and its confederation–the United Arab Emirates–have openly sponsored speeches and books by Holocaust deniers and those who endorse anti-Semitic and anti-American conspiracy theories.
Just say no to Islamist hate. Just say not to anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American hate.
And just say no to Barney’s and Loehmann’s.
Not that most of my readers shop at Barney’s anyway. I mean, who wants to spend $400 on a designer T-shirt? But Loehmann’s–which features a lot of designer bargains–should now be off-limits to your pocketbook, too.
What ever happened to the good old days . . . when the Japanese owned everything (including Barney’s)?
