Package Apartheid: UPS is Official Delivery Service of the Jihad (DHL, FedEx Much Better)

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE V, 12/14/06: Reader credits me for exposing, ending UPS Package Apartheid Delivery Policy; can now send to Jewish settlement. ****
**** UPDATE IV, 12/14/06: Complete Story at Boycott Watch, which confirms UPS’ Package Apartheid policy and credits this site for exposing and ending it. ****
**** UPDATE III, 12/14/06: NEW QUESTIONS RAISED ABOUT UPS’ PACKAGE DELIVERY APARTHEID ****
**** UPDATE II, 12/14/06: UPS ends Package Apartheid, but lies about it. Read the full details. ****
**** UPDATE, 12/13/06: Per readers comments and suggestions, I called FedEx, and FedEx will deliver to anywhere in Israel and the so-called “West Bank,” so I recommend FedEx, too, over UPS. ****
With the Judeo-Christian holidays upon us, now is one of the biggest package shipping times of the year. And given that, I hope you, dear readers, will reject UPS in favor of DHL for your package deliveries. Apparently, UPS is the official package delivery service of the jihad and practices delivery apartheid against Jews.
I thought the “P” stood for Parcel, but I was wrong–it’s the United Palestinian Service.
Yesterday, I received this e-mail from reader Ruth G.:

Dear Debbie:
A friend of mine has a son learning in the Gush in Israel. She wanted to send him a package. She called UPS about shipping her package to Gush Yeshiva [DS: A yeshiva is a Jewish academy] in the Gush EtZion. UPS told her they do not deliver packages beyond the green line. He would have to go the Jerusalem to pick it up. My friend asked if they deliver packages to Ramala. The reply was yes. After further research for a delivery service she called DHL, they had no problem taking her package and delivering it to her son.

UPS: Jihad Package Service; DHL: For Us Infidels

Are you aware of this? Why won’t UPS deliver in all areas of the State of Israel?
Sincerely,
Ruth G.
Baltimore, MD

Last night, I called UPS to verify this, and, in fact, it is true. Not only is it true, but UPS will not recognize even parts of Israel that are within the “Green Line,” such as the Golan Heights. A man from UPS read me the following statement (which is not on the UPS website–perhaps they are too cowardly to acknowledge this online):

UPS service is provided to and from most addresses within Israel and the Palestine [sic] Authority area, except for Jewish settlements in the West Bank, a few remote areas in the Golan Heights, and the Southern Negev desert.

I asked the UPS employee if I could send a package to “Palestinian” areas of the West Bank. He said yes. I asked him if I could send a package to terrorist-infested Ramallah. He said yes. I asked him if I could send a package to Arab areas in the Golan Heights. Again, the answer was “YES.”
I asked the man why UPS would not deliver to Jewish areas of these regions. He responded, “for security reasons. It’s dangerous there.” A big, fat lie–the Jewish areas are the only safe areas in these regions. In the Palestinian areas, the UPS man might be tortured and/or beheaded and his “package” castrated without anesthetic, as is a traditional form of torture there.
I asked the UPS employee how it could possibly be safer in the streets of Ramallah, where Fatah and HAMAS terrorists are killing each other and Westerners, daily, than it is in Gush Etzion. “I don’t know. I just work here. I don’t set policy,” was the response.
Well, now we know the official “policy” of UPS–giving in to Islamic terrorists and their anti-Semitic views.
The Etzion block is an important place in Israeli history and Jewish history. There were Jews living in villages there well before the State of Israel existed. It is the “Southern Gateway” to Jerusalem. History of Gush Etzion is on the official Gush website.
In 1948, all four Gush Etzion settlements were totally destroyed. Arab Muslims tortured and murdered 240 men and women, with another 260 being taken into captivity (and tortured). Prime Minister Ben Gurion in 1948 eulogized the defenders of Gush Etzion and their heroic stand against the Jordanian Legion:

I can think of no battle in the annals of the Israel Defense Forces which was more magnificent, more tragic or more heroic than the struggle for Gush Etzion – If there exists a Jewish Jerusalem, our foremost thanks go to the defenders of Gush Etzion.

The heroism of the people of the Etzion Bloc in the face of Islamic terrorists is captured in a great (and sad) book I enjoyed reading, “Siege in the Hills of Hebron: The Battle of the Etzion Bloc” (edited by Dov Knohl).
Now, the new battle is apparently in the package delivery arena. Since anti-Semitic UPS won’t deliver to Jewish areas, I suggest you send your packages via DHL, which has no such phony “security” problems. And tell your friends and family, too. (Ironically, DHL is German-owned; UPS is supposed to be American.)
Today, they won’t deliver to Jewish areas. Tomorrow, it will be Christian areas. But the Islamic terrorist-infested areas, no prob. UPS: Official delivery service of the Jihad. DHL: Still free and strong.

What about FedEx?
Do they know that there’s a country called Israel?
It seems FedEx is OK too, so far.

As for me I never use the Men in Brown and will never use the Yellow Banana Vans…
DHL launched on Nov. 28 a program to streamline cross-border shipping in North America.
The North America Trade Lane initiative is a long-term plan to adapt networks, infrastructure and services to speed movement between the United States, Canada and Mexico. It will include:
? new International Gateways and expanded “Border Operating Centers”
? additional bilingual customer service representatives
? additional representatives to help customers with cross-border shipping.
Early in 2007, DHL will launch BOCs strategically located in Tijuana, Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Matamoros, Mexico with companion U.S. locations just across the border
DHL cant ship things correctly from NY to Ohio how the heck can they take this project on?
It seems some of the Independent Contractor’s are leaving so quickly that DHL forgets to make the IC take the logos off their vans..I have some pictures of Mexican gardeners using the vans…FULLY LOGO’ed
FedEx and the USPS is my choice.

Perhaps the problem is in the delivery van driver. I assume that the employee will be of Palastinian origin in the “Palastinian” areas and Israeli (whatever the religion) in the Israeli areas. Maybe the Jewish areas of the West Bank don’t really want a Palastinian UPS van full of explosives pulling up in their driveways.
THAT DOESN’T ADDRESS WHY AN ISRAELI CAN’T DELIVER TO JEWISH AREAS (LIKE THE GOLAN HEIGHTS, HEBRON, ETC.). THEY HAVE PLENTY OF ISRAELI DRIVERS. WHY CAN DHL DO IT AND NOT UPS?

LoveAManInAUniform on December 12, 2006 at 2:40 pm

I think “LoveAManInAUniform” response does make some sense, though not completely, and unlike my comment to “AT&T” (the article Debbie cited which I just commented on), I mostly agree with Deb here.
First off, it doesn’t explain the Golan Heights as Deb said.
Second, I have never been to Israel and don’t claim to be a “supreme expert” on this, but I know enough to know (and some of it is just common sense) that these settlements are very well protected by both the settlers and the IDF. They are certainly much safer than most “Palestinian” areas (especially now that they are fighting amongst themselves).
But if the previous response had complete merit, then what would’ve happened is the Israeli gov’t would’ve been the driver behind UPS not going there (perhaps warning UPS that it is not safe because of fears that a UPS truck will be used in a bombing) and that is almost certainly not the case here, it sounds like it is UPS’ own decision and since it doesn’t affect their direct bottom line, here is is almost certainly “political” (like all the years Pepsi didn’t deal with Israel).
If UPS really wanted to do business with the settlements and feared security, they could make arrangements where packages go to a central area and have a strategic alliance with an Israeli domestic delivery service to continue the shipment from there.
DHL is better (and cheaper) for most international shipments anyway……

I will start off by saying I am not only a proud Jew but also a proud American, not to mention a proud employee of UPS, which happens to stand for a lot more integrity than what is posted in this blog by Debbie Schlussel. I even question if she will post my response as it clearly differs from her opinions, primarily because mine is based upon fact and not irresponsible journalism.
I am not saying that UPS, or any company for that matter, can control policy across all their locations and amongst all their workers. However, if abuse of the system is happening then why not back it up by fact? I not only welcome anyone and everyone who has had an issue with UPS not delivering their package to the areas in question, but I urge you to email me directly with their tracking number(s) and I will personally investigate as to where and when they were delivered. If they were not correctly delivered I will find out why. If there is an abuse of the system, I will ensure it gets addressed. Unlike others who only post allegations not back up by fact, I am posting my email address for all to see and contact me if they so desire. My name is Daniel Levine and I can be reached by email at mailbox@mdlevine.com.
I contacted our Corporate Public Relations department and they were already aware of this blog. They have also put together the following response, which by no doubt Debbie will dismiss as corporate propaganda, to which once again I reply, get me the facts.
Statement Regarding UPS Service to Israel
December 13, 2006
UPS offers worldwide express service to and from Israel to both residential and business addresses and a domestic service within Israel through its authorized service contractor, O.P.S.I. International Handling Limited.
Regrettably, information provided recently by UPS customer service representatives regarding UPS?s service territory in Israel was incorrect. This is currently being resolved.
Through O.P.S.I., UPS covers 99% of the population in Israel outside the West Bank, except for a few remote areas in the Golan Heights and the Negev Desert, where it would be cost prohibitive to provide service. Only remote areas in the West Bank with very low population density are not covered ? on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides. In the West Bank, UPS?s service reaches over 80% of the population and covers approximately 60% of the territory, including the Gush EtZion area.
All packages coming from abroad are delivered into all areas of Yehuda and Shomron. This includes Gush EtZion. Customers residing in this area DO NOT have to go to Jerusalem to pick up their shipments.
UPS does not tolerate any type of discrimination and would not associate with any parties who did not embrace UPS?s concern for fairness and equality.
DANNY:
HAVE A TINY IOTA OF INTEGRITY. AND A TINY BIT OF A BRAIN. UPS IS LYING. HOW IS IT THAT ALL OF THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS READ THE SAME STATEMENT SAYING THEY DO NOT DELIVER TO JEWISH SETTLEMENTS? iN THE STATEMENT YOU POSTED, UPS ADMITS THAT–CLAIMING THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS “REGRETTABLY” PROVIDED “INCORRECT” INFORMATION. THAT THEY ADMIT THIS, BUT YOU CANNOT, AND INSTEAD QUESTION MY INTEGRITY TELLS ME A LOT ABOUT YOU (IE., THAT YOU ARE CLUELESS *AND* FULL OF CRAP). I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT UPS DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO CONTACT ME, AFTER I CONTACTED THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I ALSO FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THEY ARE CLAIMING THAT ALL OF THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS READ THIS ENTIRE STATEMENT PREPARED FOR THEM BY UPS CLAIMING THAT THEY DON’T DELIVER TO THE JEWISH SETTLEMENTS AND THE GOLAN. AND NOW IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT ALL OF THEIR CUST SVC REPS HAD THE “INCORRECT” INFO. NO, IT WASN’T INCORRECT. IT WAS UPS POLICY, AND NOW THEY ARE COVERING THEIR ASSES B/C THEY GOT CAUGHT WITH THEIR PANTS DOWN. WAKE UP, IDIOT. AND, OH YEAH, LEARN HOW TO READ WHAT EVEN YOUR OWN EMPLOYER IS SAYING.
AGAIN, YOUR EMPLOYER GOT CAUGHT WITH ITS PANTS DOWN AND NOW YOU ARE TRYING TO COVER THEIR ASS. HOW DO YOU ENJOY YOUR NEW ROLE AS UPS’ DIAPER?

UPS is infamous for this type of antisemetic policy. For Jewish business owners it’s a know fact that DHL is better. Shipping UPS is like supporting terrorism and anti-Israel groups. Aside from that DHL has better service – So continue to Boycott UPS!
Use DHL – Discount for businesses

threetoedkaola on December 14, 2006 at 3:11 am

Debbie,
I just got off the phone with Lior, a supervisor in UPS Israel.
He told me that UPS DOES DELIVER to the Gush via subcontractor, identically to the way they deliver to the Arab areas of Yesha (just with different subcontractors obviously).
He said that the Yeshivat Har Etzion office called the UPS office earlier today regarding this topic, to tell them that the UPS driver WAS THERE DELIVERING A PACKAGE THIS MORNING.
I’ve emailed the Gush office today to verify this. I’ll let you know if they verify it, and obviosuly, you can call them yourself.
Lior added that the computers in the States are simply incorrect, and any data they have is old, and totally economically – not politically – motivated. He added that those computers would be updated shortly (no kidding!) This matches the UPS statement.
YOSI:
READ MY UPDATE HERE:
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2006/12/brownshirts_cov.html
UPS DID NOT DELIVER TO GUSH, BUT NOW WILL. UPS IS CONCOCTING A PHONY STORY, CLAIMING IT ALWAYS DELIVERED THERE AND THAT ALL OF ITS USA CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS HAD THE WRONG INFORMATION. THAT’S A LIE. UPS GOT CAUGHT, SO NOW THEY ARE SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE.

UPS should stand behind its right and obligation not to serve the illegal, the immoral, or in this case both.

pat on December 18, 2006 at 8:31 pm

Your need for control of posting leads me to suspect you run a very bias glog/ website.

pat on December 18, 2006 at 8:35 pm

Nonsense, Pat; if you ran a blog of your own, or did any more than diddle at MySpace, you’d know that you HAVE to have control over the posting. Anything is irresponsible and just brings out the trolls.
Good show Debbie–I have it at:
