I’ve known since I was a young kid that Oxfam International–the organization which pretends the feed the hungry and needy around the world–was really a left-wing propaganda front for anti-Semites and Islamo-enablers. When someone tried to get me to give some change to the charity, my father educated me on this verminous group and showed me articles about the vehemently anti-Israel behavior of this disgusting British organization with a great PR machine. At the time, the organization was solidly in the back pocket of Yasser Arafat and his minions training for terrorism in refugee camps. But, now, OxFam helps feed HAMAS, Fatah, and multiple other Islamic terrorists from cradle to grave, nurturing their every homicidal fantasy with grub. OxFam’s sponsorship of the boycott of Israeli goods, for which it has produced posters, is well known.

So, given that, you have to wonder why Israeli beauty products company, Ahava (which means “love” in Hebrew), hired “Sex & the City” star Kristin Davis, an OxFam activist, as its spokesmodel and celebrity endorser.
Sadly, the Israelis and the rest of the Jews are far too tolerant and accepting (which is why they’re losing every political battle for their survival), and OxFam has demonstrated its real intolerance by dumping Davis. And like a jilted lover who won’t accept the finality that it’s over, she says she still wants to be part of OxFam, which reader “I Am Me” aptly calls, “Ox-SHAM.”
“SEX and the City” star Kristin Davis is caught in the crossfire of Mideast politics.
The stunning actress [DS: both of those terms are debatable in their applicability to her] is no longer working as a spokeswoman for human rights/relief organization Oxfam International because she also endorses the Ahava cosmetics line — which is manfactured in what Oxfam regards as “disputed” territory.
Because Ahava is made by Dead Sea Cosmetics in the Mitzhe Shalem Jewish settlement in the West Bank, it’s been controversial — the leftist women’s peace group Code Pink, which accuses America of “war crimes,” has called for a boycott, saying Ahava uses Palestinian natural resources in what it calls “Occupied Palestine.”
“This has been a huge thing,” one source told us. “Ahava has factories on disputed land. From Ahava’s perspective, they are not doing anything wrong. From an Oxfam perspective, Ahava is a polarizing company and Kristin shouldn’t be involved with it.”
Our source said Davis “has been very active with both Oxfam and Ahava, and is very passionate about the causes of Oxfam. She was completely unaware of this conflict of interest and is saddened to be on public pause from a group she has devoted so much time, money, and support to.”
In a statement, Oxfam said, “Kristin Davis has done great work for Oxfam and we highly value her commitment as a supporter . . . Oxfam remains opposed to settlement trade, in which Ahava is engaged. Both Kristin and Oxfam do not want this issue to detract from the great work we have done in the past and plan to do in the future.”
A spokeswoman for Davis told Page Six, “Kristin is passionate about her relationship with Oxfam, and she intends to work with them and other humanitarian causes for years to come.” Ahava had no comment.
If I were Ahava’s CEO, I’d immediately find a way to fire Kristin Davis (and I’d get a better marketing person who knows how to research the anti-Israel causes of potential spokespeople). Right now, with Ahava paying Davis a ton of shekels, and Davis donating beaucoup bucks to OxFam, Ahava is essentially indirectly contributing to the free meals of Islamic terrorists and other Israel haters. Or, at the very least, the money is going to Oxfam posters urging the boycott of Israeli products . . . like Ahava cosmetics.
That’s a very sad situation to be in for an Israeli product.
OxFam’s Israeli Boycott Poster:
“The Fruits of Israel Taste Bitter
Refuse the Occupation of Palestine:
Don’t Buy Israeli Fruits or Vegetables”
Ahava needs to take a little lesson from OxFam’s behavior here and show a little intolerance for celebrities’ activism with anti-Israel groups. There’s nothing sexy about that.
