Welcome to Palestinian “Fair Trade”: Olive Oil Sold @ Whole Foods Funds Study @ Anti-Semitic, Pro-HAMAS Universities; Dr. Bronner’s Soap, Too

By Debbie Schlussel
Not that I’m a big coffee drinker–I much prefer tea. But if you’re like me, you’re sick of hearing about “fair trade” coffee and other “fair trade” items.
Fair trade? Get real. The only “fair trade” is free trade. But “fair trade” is an attack on the the free market. I say, if you don’t like the prices you get on the open market, tough. The term “fair trade” is just a phony euphemism to help parties who can’t compete on the free market, sell their coffee beans and other items through the bullying and thuggish hippie tactics of political correctness. And it’s far more expensive than coffee competitively traded on the open, free market.

An-Najah University Stages Re-enactments of Sbarro Pizza Homicide Bombing

The idea behind this is that some small farm coffee bean (and other crop) growers are disadvantaged by giant corporations and coffee traders, which sell mass quantities of crops, driving the prices down. Therefore, they essentially set up their own artificial “market”–in which they try to not be subject to the market–and get far higher, set prices and premiums (they call it “fair wages”) for their more “morally grown and traded” beans.
Yup, it’s communist coffee, basically. We’ve had this same concept in the past in America. It’s called, “price supports.” It doesn’t work.
Frankly, when I hear a coffee is “fair trade,” I try to stay away. Sadly, if you patronize places like Starbucks, you’re held captive by this “fair trade” baloney. There is nothing “fair” about it. And you wonder why these places charge $5 a cup. You’re paying extra for the “fair” in “fair trade.”
Now, Palestinian pan-terrorists and are glomming on to the “fair trade” concept for their own propaganda and hate spreading purposes. Give them credit for chutzpah, though. Palestinians in terrorist hotbed Jenin–home to many homicide bomb belt assembly lines–have started this new thing called “Canaan Fair Trade,” also known as the “Palestinian Fair Trade Association.”
You see, the people who lived in Israel and around the area when the Jews were exiting slavery in Egypt were the Canaanites. They’re extinct. They warred with the Jews, and they lost. And even though any historian with any credibility and any archeologist of any worth will acknowledge that the ancient Canaanites are long gone (as in, for centuries), some Palestinians claim they are the Canaanites. It’s blatant propaganda and fodder for a good laugh, considering that Arabs were not anywhere near the area at that time. Not even close.
Now, Palestinians are pushing this myth again, along with the “fair trade” concept. Only, their “fair trade” is slightly different. You see, they want special treatment for growers who basically all support Islamic terrorists. And–this is key–they want special treatment in the marketplace against more competitive Israeli and Arab products. Welcome to “Canaan Fair Trade,” products made by terrorism supporters in the shadow of the “evil Zionists.” And for that, you should pay a premium.
Their biggest, newest product is Canaan Fair Trade Olive Oil. Its label re-asserts the myth of the Palestinians as Canaanites and also asserts that “Palestine” is a country. And proceeds from the sale of the olive oil funds scholarships for study at anti-Semitic, pro-HAMAS universities, including An-Najah in Nablus and the Arab American University in Jenin.
An Najah’s student council is controlled by HAMAS, and it openly endorsed homicide bombings on Israeli civilians. The school staged a re-enactment of the blowing up of the Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem, as well as staged mock explosions of Israeli soldiers, to the laughing and cheering delight of students.
Sadly, Whole Foods markets are selling this pan-terrorist olive oil. If you are a patron of Whole Foods, you should ask the store why it is selling olive oil made by terrorism supporters, which funds study at anti-Semitic universities, and why Whole Foods is tacitly taking a political stand by featuring products with labels claiming Palestine is a country and that Canaan is there.
Whole Foods has already officially recognized “Palestine” on its Whole Story Whole Foods Blog, in which it features an article about how Dr. Bronner’s Magical Soaps use Olive Oil from the Palestinian Fair Trade Association. (If you buy Dr. Bronner’s products, you are also funding scholarships to anti-Semitic An-Najah U.) A Whole Foods customer commented on the blog:

Dolores Forge:
I love our local Whole Foods store, but especially now that I realize you stock merchandise that helps the Palestinians. I will be buying Dr Bronner products from now on, starting today.

Also ask Whole Foods why it doesn’t carry some of the many terrific brands of Olive Oil made in Israel by the “Canaan Fair Traders”‘ desired victims. (Again, Jenin is Fatah terrorist central.) I checked and didn’t see any Israeli olive oil on the shelves. But there are so many great Israeli olive oils like Capernaum Vista Olive Farm Olive Oil (and miraculous olive oil soap–I’ve tried both the oil and the soap, and they are excellent), made in Israel’s Golan Heights, Isroil Olive Oil, and Halutza Olive Oil, made in Israel’s Negev Highlands.
I think it’s hilarious that this oil, according to its website, has USDA “organic” certification. How does the USDA know? Did they actually send tax-funded officials to Jenin to see how the olives are grown and processed into oil? Don’t bet on it.
Here’s what the “Canaan Fair Trade” a/k/a “We support blowing up Jews” group is sending around America.

History has been made. Canaan olive oil is the first Palestinian product to be stocked nationally in food chains across the US and the UK, and Canaan is the world’s first fair trade olive oil.
Canaan olive oil, under the ALTER ECO Fair Trade brand, is stocked in all 275 Whole Foods stores in the US. Our partner ALTER ECO sells both Nabali and Rumi oils under their own label as Mild and Robust extra virgin olive oils. Canaan, Palestine, is front and center on the label. The size is 375ml and the bottle is black.
This national rollout, if successful, will touch many lives in
Palestine [DS: And fund a lot more homicide belts and scholarships to institutes of hate]. Please help make the launch a success by looking for the Canaan olive oil in Whole Foods. Tell your friends how easy it is to pick up a bottle of Palestinian olive oil anywhere in the country now.
Co-op Supermarkets across the UK wanted to be the first major retailer to stock Canaan olive oil because they support ethical standards in trading as we do.

https://www.canaanfairtrade.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/arab-british-chamber-31809.pdf

Canaan Fair Trade has brought the strength of the commercial market to the network of Palestinian cooperatives that is the Palestine Fair Trade Association. Canaan markets all the products of these cooperatives. By qualifying for fair trade and organic certification of our products by independent certifiers TransFair USA (FLO) and IMO of Switzerland, and by Canaan qualifying for membership in the Fair Trade Federation of North America, we gain the credibility to enter the commercial market.
We open the world to Palestinian farmers.
This is a much needed and entirely new audience of consumers for
Palestine and Palestinian products. They have not had adequate information about Palestine in the past. This is now changing. Thanks for all you do to support Palestinian farmers, and support this new national exposure.

And it’s an opportunity to fund scholarships for the teaching of more anti-Semitic hate.
Fair Trade Olive Oil? More Like “Fair” Terrorism Snake Oil.
If you’re against terrorism and anti-Semitic hate, don’t buy Canaan Fair Trade olive oil or Dr. Bronner’s products.
Or better yet, don’t shop at Whole Foods.

Yet another reason to hate hippy, commie types. Thanks for clarifying the “fair trade” facade label on stuff. I didn’t know what the hell it stood for and figured, wrongly, that it was just another empty meaningless slogan to sell something.

samurai on April 9, 2009 at 8:06 pm

Damn! Doc Bronner’s soap is a staple in every serious hiker’s backpack. I’ve used it for years, since it was considered the safe soap to use in the back country.
I’ll take any suggestions for a replacement.
That stuff worked really well, too. *heavy sigh*

cirrus1701 on April 9, 2009 at 8:07 pm

Let me clarify my previous statement. I read the article again, and you did suggest some alternatives. I should have been more specific. I’m a big fan of peppermint/peppermint castile type soaps. I was looking for opinions on those types of soaps. Sorry.

cirrus1701 on April 9, 2009 at 8:12 pm

I actually met Dr. Bronner himself. A pleasant, blind Jewish man as I recall. I loved the soap and always thought he was quite the character. These days I prefer Arbonne soap (GOOGLE). Much more pure and not as ‘detergenty’ on the skin as Bronners. Castille soap is used for enema solutions in hospital settings BTW.

Whole Foods is a corporation that peddles a save the environment, save the world, ethical living, socially conscious message to cover for their greed in overcharging their customers and make their customers feel good about spending so much money. If they really believe their healthy “lifestyle” is crucial to the future of the planet, they would make their food more affordable to the average person.
Having said that, I rarely find a better option than Whole Foods in most places for good tasting and healthy food?

4infidels on April 10, 2009 at 6:49 am

‘Whole Paycheck’ is what they’re known as on Wall St. for their exorbitant prices and minimal value.
The management and culture of this radical left-wing cult is the epitome of hypocrisy! They treat the employees like slaves, intimidate them regularly (especially if late by a few minutes or a dollar short in their cash drawers,) sell veal, have been caught numerous times using chemicals and trans-fats in their food(!), sell old, marginally spoiled food by covering it up in sauces at the prepared foods counter (the employees I befriended shared that with me-) and now sponsor terrorism and anti-semitism!
Recently, for the past couple months at each check out, they’d ask if you “wanted to donate $1 to give business ‘micro-loans’ to those in ‘disadvantaged’ countries.” When I read the fine print I saw that the bulk of the “loans” went to Muslim nations and not a penny to Americans!
I wish I had a camera to show the faces of some of the hippies when I politely barked back at them “No– I don’t want to donate to spawn the next generation of Jihadists — I’d rather donate to people in my own country like our war veterans– not to people who want to cut off my head.”
The funny thing is most of them ended up agreeing with me and apologized by saying “We’re told we have to ask or we get in trouble- but you’re actually right in what you say.”
Some corporation PLEASE give Whole Foods their long-overdue comeuppance and start a competitor to this left-wing mafia of hypocrisy!

There’s a Whole Foods down the street from work. I’ve never been there but I’ve heard it’s expensive. I like Trader Joe’s. If you don’t live in a Western state you may not know Trader Joe’s but it’s a great store. Folks looking for an alternative to Whole Foods should look into their local farmer’s markets, too.

Richard on April 10, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Debbie, I used to shop at WF sporadically, but aside from the better than average looking female shoppers, the place always gave me the creeps. I am suspicious of any organization that overcharges you with some vague assurance that it’s all for the commmon good. We already have several layers of government doing that. And the US government sends lot of aid money to Arabs already, so we are playing both sides. You can’t expect any better from private businesses, especially ones that suck money out of their excessively vain, misinformed and leftist shoppers.

Anonymous1 on April 10, 2009 at 1:31 pm

New here.
I’m not Jewish just so you know.
You might be interested to know the Catholic Church is really big on this fair trade crap. They set up fair trade fairs in their parishes and get a percentage of the sales. Basically, it makes them money (they can’t get enough) so they can go on and support Communist’s (which most are) and terrorist’s.

Lilly on April 10, 2009 at 10:06 pm

I am in NY and live near a trader joes-I think they are nice. As for whole food, good variety but soo expensive. I rarely go there anyway

I think you are a little off the mark on Fair Trade vs. Terrorist Trade. First off, Fair Trade needn’t be more expensive. (Both Costco and Trader Joes sell a Fair Trade coffee that is inexpensive and good.) But if it is, it’s the Free Market at work. If I want to spend more money to support higher wages, than I should be allowed to make that choice. And if something is certified Fair Trade, that is simply saying that the increased price is because it gets passed down the line.
Also, if you are avoiding Whole Food solely because of Dr. Bronner’s soaps and the Canaan misnomer product, I have some bad news for you. Here in Los Angeles, Dr. Bronner’s is sold at Trader Joes, Ralphs, Vons, CVS, Albertson’s, and Bristol Farms. (And those are just the ones I know of.) I’d encourage you not to buy Dr. Bronner’s, but I don’t think it makes sense to avoid an entire store because of one of thousands of products they carry. I think you’ll quickly find you have nowhere to shop.
If you need to avoid Whole Foods, there are lots of good reasons for liberal as well as conservative reasons. (Labor relations, environmental impacts, zoning and gentrification, all the way to funding terrorist scholarships.)

Dr. Bronner’s Responds…
April 26, 2009 To Whom It May Concern: Re: Dr. BronnerÔø?s Response to Criticism of Fair Trade Organic Olive Oil from Palestine
Dr. BronnerÔø?s uses over 150 metric tons per year of organic olive oil for the velvety smoothness it contributes to our soaps. In early 2007, Dr. BronnerÔø?s began sourcing 90% of our olive oil needs from Palestinian producers near the West Bank town of Jenin.
There, the trading firm Canaan Fair Trade was founded by Palestinians who support peaceful co-existence with Israel and see profitable olive farming as one means of improving PalestiniansÔø? economic situation. Canaan works closely with the Palestine Fair Trade Association (PFTA), and now purchases oil from 1,700 smallholders organized in the PFTA.
Dr. BronnerÔø?s funding of the organic and Fair Trade certification by IMO boosted the projectÔø?s visibility and provided access to high-end markets in Europe and the U.S. We are also advancing funds far ahead of purchases, which helps Canaan and the PFTA to further develop processing and storage infrastructure. Because Palestinian olive oil competes with subsidized olive oil from EU countries, oil production in the past has not been lucrative for smallholders and the local economy. But now, PFTA growers are guaranteed a minimum price to cover costs of production and receive a combined organic and Fair Trade premium of 25%.
Canaan donates additional funds for education, tree planting and logistics projects. Beyond our trade relationship, Dr. BronnerÔø?s supports Canaan with logistics and distribution contacts and provides technical support as well. Our cooperation with Canaan allows Palestinian growers to trade directly with growing high-value markets for organic and Fair Trade materials while redeveloping their traditional livelihoods.
The balance of our olive oil comes from Israel. Sindyanna, a Fair Trade business run by Jewish and Arab women in Israel, supports Arab-Israeli producers. And in light of the vision of peace that the olive branch symbolizes, we are also sourcing olive oil from the Jewish Israeli Strauss family farm in Israel, a pioneer in organic olive oil production. Michael Strauss, former elite Israeli Defense Force scout, is a big supporter of our mixing Palestinian and Israeli olive oil in our soaps, as can be seen in this video: http://www.drbronner.com/olive_oil_from_the_holyland.html
An excellent article and overview of these projects and efforts appeared in HaaretzÔø?s Israeli news magazine Colbo: http://www.drbronner.com/pdf/drbronnerpress_colbo_article.pdf
Recently, we have become aware of attacks on Canaan Fair Trade in the US. The basis appears to simply be that the source is Palestinian, which the attackers conflate with terrorism against Israel. This is similar to calls to boycott Israeli businesses, conflating them with settlers taking Palestinian land. In neither case generally is there any direct connection.
In particular, Canaan Fair Trade is an example of what fair trade is about: disadvantaged farmers facing the obstacles and difficulties of reaching markets in the midst of a conflict situation, are being organized on fair-trade terms that help them and their families negotiate these obstacles and connect with markets in the west. The fair trade premium is invested back into the communities that produce the olive oil, for community development projects, educational scholarships and improving production efficiencies.
In regards to scholarships to universities in the West Bank, we abhor any and all glorifications of terrorism that have or will occur on these diverse campuses, but that should not distract from the importance and value of a college education for disadvantaged Palestinians. Even taking a narrow Israeli security view, it is in IsraelÔø?s interest that Palestinians have gainful employment and access to markets, as economic desperation and lack of economic opportunity contributes to the radicalization of Palestinian youth.
Israel itself imports all kinds of Palestinian agricultural produce for domestic consumption, and is a primary export market for Palestinian olive oil. Our olive oil from Canaan is exported to Israel for refining, which Dr. BronnerÔø?s Israeli distributor helps coordinate as well as the shipping.
The Israeli government would hardly permit this if it believed that the olive oil was funding terrorism.
We the fourth and fifth generation family at Dr. BronnerÔø?s are proud of our Jewish heritage and are strong supporters of IsraelÔø?s right to exist and security, and contribute annually to Magen David Adom, the Israeli Red Cross.
Nazis murdered Dr. BronnerÔø?s parents and much of his extended family, and stole the family soap business. Dr. BronnerÔø?s sister Lotte emigrated to Israel in 1936 to the Ein Gev kibbutz, and we have family throughout Israel that we visit frequently. Lotte died last month and we celebrated her passing with a memorial page and short video interview she gave discussing amongst other things her childhood and mixing Israeli and Palestinian oil in our soaps:
http://www.drbronner.com/dr_bronners_lotte.html
Our Timeline has more details of our history:
http://www.drbronner.com/timeline.html Dr. BronnerÔø?s launched our soaps in Israel last year with presentations by ourselves and Nasser Abufarha, Executive Director of Canaan Fair Trade, which the Israeli press covered positively: http://www.drbronner.com/drb_press_the_mkt.html
Just as we are comfortable saying that Lotte emigrated to Ôø?IsraelÔø? in 1936 even though technically it was still Ôø?PalestineÔø?, we respect the national aspirations of the Palestinian people in saying that our Palestinian olive oil comes from Ôø?PalestineÔø?.
We are optimistic that we can rise above religious and sectarian differences and realize our transcendent unity: that we are All-One based on mutual respect and recognition of each othersÔø? rights and history.
Sincerely,
David Bronner
President Dr. BronnerÔø?s Magic Soaps
[A: IT’S UNFORTUNATE DR. BRONNER’S HAS CHOSEN TO LIE. AS YOU ARE WELL AWARE, OUR OBJECTION TO YOUR SOAP IS NOT THAT THE OLIVE OIL IS MADE BY PALESTINIANS. IT IS THAT IT IS MADE BY PALESTINIANS WHO SUPPORT TERRORISM AND THAT THE MONEY GOES TO SCHOLARSHIPS AND TERRORIST UNIVERSITIES CONTROLLED BY HAMAS. THAT YOU CANNOT ADMIT THE TRUTH AND CHOOSE TO LIE, DOES NOT HELP YOUR CASE. DS]

Adcdj on April 28, 2009 at 3:26 pm

So, the Palestinians aren’t going to be allowed to develop an export business either? Do you think they should just starve to death or what?

A: Please learn how to read. Reading Is Fundamental. If you bothered reading you’d know that Whole Foods refuses to carry Israel’s olive oil and that this Palestinian olive oil they carry and promote is funding “educations” at Terrorist University. When they stop recruiting for HAMAS and mocking innocent victims of a pizzeria bombing, then they will succeed without opposition. Until then, yes, I don’t give a crap if they starve to death. They deserve it and more, when they blow others up. DS

Andrea on August 21, 2009 at 5:02 pm

Fair trade is just marketing; it’s not any different than any other kind of marketing. Brands frequently advertise many different claims of quality to get you to buy their product – walk into any grocery store or turn on the TV – it’s how the free market works. If someone wants to buy from a small farmer in a developing country why can’t they make that choice? How is this communist or working outside the market as you say? It’s basic business – it’s a niche market. I’m not defending fair trade itself – it has its benefits and drawbacks – just noting that I don’t understand your issue with it besides hippies/lefties tend to like it.
Not sure that last time you went to Starbucks – it’s kind of gone main stream now; and it’s only $2 a cup, not $5. Where do you buy your coffee?

2. The Sbarro terrorist act was horrible; I am against supporting an organization that promotes such acts. Given the state of the Israel/Palestine conflict I would be hesitant to give to either side for fear of what the money would be used for. That being said, it would be nice if there was a way to improve Palestinians education and economy in order to divert the cycle of terrorism that is entrenched in that region.

cp123 on January 26, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    what you write in point 1 is only partially true. As you know, the bulk of fivebucks’ income is made from the large array of more expensive drinks it sells such as the now famous lattes, which are really a form of milkshake. You can now get them at McDonald’s for maybe half the price fivebucks charges. Fivebucks also charges outlandish prices for its pastries, which is another item that can be purchased for far less elsewhere. In fact, many financial planners tout the high savings people could pocket by NOT buying lattes from places such as fivebucks. What’s more, they often have a jar for tips but for what kind of service?

    On point 2 is also in error. There are many places on earth where there is terrible poverty, often worse than in Islamic dominated countries [have you ever considered that these days those same nations and societies are not only among the poorest on earth, if they don’t have oil that foreigners extract for them, but the least educated and most brutal, barbaric, and stingy societies on earth? [after all, the U.S. offers a lot more international relief to natural disaster sites around the world than, say, the gulf oil states even when those sites are in islamic nations such as indonesia]] where there is not the kind of mayhem and rampant violence seen in islamic nations as a matter of course and oftentimes not reported by our mainstream press. Education will not do the arabs any good if it is accompanied by or dominated by lessons in hate, violence, and loathing of human life and property. The first “lesson” to be taught to Arab and Islamic societies is the disabuse themselves of the insanity that currently dominates their cultures.

    MrOcto8 on August 31, 2011 at 3:23 pm

Debbie, I sent an email to you before and you asked if you could post it I said sure…you have a number of posts on different sites and I didn’t see my email. I just want to emphasize that whether moot or not as to where the monies go that are used when buying this soap or fair trade “palestinian” olive oil, I still have not seen my local Whole Foods on 14th Street and Union Square restock any Israeli olive oil. Is Whole Foods purposely boycotting olive oil stamped “made in Israel”? I don’t know but it hasn’t reappeared in the last few months when this “palestinian” fair trade oil showed up.

The olive groves in the middle east are a flashpoint, sure, but if indeed Whole Foods has politicized a point of view in terms of stocking olive oil stamped “Made in Israel” then shame on them and shame on them for the tacit implication equating blame on Israeli policy for the situation there with the history of years of policy by the PLO and other organizations the Palestinian people supported as their voice calling for the extermination of Israel and its citizen. I applaud the good will of Dr. Bronner and families of Israelis and Arabs who want to create a product together, however, to then punish Israeli producers as some sort of political commentary, a country that is a staunch ally of the US and the only democracy in the US, is a travesty.

As much as is implied, Israel, unlike this counterpart which has had its mandates for the destruction of Israel and the genocide of its citizen written as policy in black and white, has never had a policy of genocide written into its foreign policy. I do believe Whole Foods by promoting a Fair Trade Oil that pushes a “Palestinian” produced item by families who are encouraging good will between both groups promotes a tacit propaganda that Israel policy = active jihadism when you take into account Whole Foods appears to be not stocking Israeli olive oil next to olive oil produced by other nations allowed to trade in the US. Shame on Whole Foods for this.

Jill on July 6, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Trader Kjoes is a hippie type food store, selling eco friendly, no preservative foods, they sell Israeli oil, so does Fresh foods , a great store that I shope in, I bought delish olive oil in there from Israel. I live near a whole foods and I’ve never been in there, my stores are fine.

MadHatter on October 8, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I may have to disagree on the actual origin of the ‘fair trade’ designation. It’s not all about funding Palis and some big hippie feel-good scheme. A lot of these people are small farmers who certainly can’t compete against mass-produced genetically-modified agribusiness. I’d rather pay $1 more per pound of coffee so a man in Costa Rica can make a living wage versus doling out mountains of foreign aid that goes nowhere.

in addition, some of these projects are set up by corporations themselves. An example would be Nabob Coffee, which is not exactly a tiny firm. They’ve figured out a way to deliver a quality product that doesn’t exploit hard working people.

I am lucky enough to live where it doesn’t matter too much, as we enjoy a year-long growing season and local produce that is ridiculously cheap. Whole Foods exploits the goodwill of people with insane price gouging and I’d never endorse them regardless of which nation’s produce they carried. The fact that they carry these terrorist brands does add an extra nausea factor though, I won’t lie.

It does come down to choice, and I’ll opt for a locally-produced oil or one from a non-Hamas state. I’ll then use that oil to fry my latkes that I enjoy with my free trade coffee that is roasted on the island i live on.

    That is a despicable thing to say, David. I feel sorry for you that you wrote that. You must be a miserable human being. Perhaps you don’t even qualify as a human being. You are clearly an uneducated ignoramus. I wish you could be enlightened. It is sad that folks like you exist.

    Atmar on August 27, 2011 at 8:16 pm

we have used Dr. Bronners since the ’70’s! Yes I heard that it was owned by a Jew. Well we will just change, somehow there will be a way to find a substitution, I believe that “if G-d brings you to it, He will bring you through it”.

edie on August 31, 2011 at 11:34 pm

Thank you Debbie.

Ana on September 4, 2011 at 11:39 am

Here’s what I posted on their website:

“Wow! Now that I know that Whole Foods blindly aids terrorists by not only perpetuating the myth that they had a country stolen from them (“Palestine”? Just where is that on the map?), but by aiding them to cover up their funding activities as “wholesome families making organic products (Do you really think the USDA gets in there to check??), I’ll be moving all my business to Trader Joe’s.”

Hopefully, I will not be alone in this.

Susan on October 16, 2011 at 2:01 am

Remember who shops at WF…..mostly left wing anti just about everything…..unthinking broadcasters of the mob mentality. How cool to support terrorism…….kind of a delicious and safe way to be loud……

catherine maneker on August 25, 2012 at 3:29 pm

bebbie ure little pathetic blog is the best advert for dr. bronner’s i have ever read. hahah!

pal on August 23, 2013 at 6:54 pm

Thanks for the heads up. Now I will make sure to buy from Whole Foods and this Olive oil and soap. Do you really think a religion of one billion people would support terrorism or perhaps youre not getting the whole picture here. So much propraganda out there, especially about “Israel”. I will tell all my friends too about Whole foods’ initiatives . Thanks from a proud American Muslim.

Sh on October 17, 2013 at 5:08 pm

Whew! I thought my girlfriend had just bought something produced by settlers in Palestine, but when I saw Schlussel despises Dr. Bronner products, I knew the Palestinians must be reaping the benefits and not the settlers. Thanks!

Ken Schroeder on March 30, 2014 at 11:25 am

We stopped shopping at WF a long time ago. There was something just”not right” about the place. That one was in Santa Fe NM. Everyone seemed to secretly hate the place. It was a big joke,yet the people in there thought they were celebrities for working in there. The place had a really malevolent vibe. It became downright evil. Everyone knew,but it had to be revealed one by one. I think people are starting to connect the dots now. I think the SLEEPING GIANT has awoken. Thanks for yet another reason for avoiding that toxic totalitarian vibed place.
