SEX & the Anti-Israel City: Ox-SHAM Drops Sex Star b/c of Israeli Product Endorsement

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

“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.

It looks like Ahava’s left hand doesn’t know what its right hand is doing. If you’re going to have a spokesperson for an Israeli product, make sure they are truly pro-Israel. A little research there would helped Ahava to avoid a public relations nightmare.

I know. I learned this one.

Whore! You can’t have it both ways. And shame on YOU.

who is disputing the land? a non existent country?

John Hamer on August 6, 2009 at 4:05 pm

I love AHAVA products, I don’t watch S&TS, but I admire anyone in entertainment who endorses products from Israel, especially the products I know well and use often (as I do AHAVA products).

On the positive side of this situation (your post, OXFAM), these actions help us among consumers know what organizations not to patronize. In this case, it’s OXFAM.

But, you’re right, there shouldn’t be duplicity by celebrities who endorse whatever products.

AHAVA makes wonderful products, sure merits a serious face to it’s product line.

I didn’t know Oxfam’s anti-semitic history. I’ll definitely avoid their charity shops next time I’m in the UK.

It seems that every left-wing organization has to disguise itself these days.

tempus fugit on August 6, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    Deception is the foundation of Islam, so disguising itself is a useful tool.

    There is an antidote to Islam, I learned yesterday, it’s smoking opium three times a day (done in Afghanistan) per BareNakedIslam. It helps the pain, but when your husband decides to divorce you by Accusation of Adultry, nothing numbs the pain of hanging, stoning, beheading, or dismemberment. You must accept that it will be over soon…. (unless you get the slow beheader who takes several minutes to stretch it out.)

Your father sure did brainwash you, didnt he?

Aussie Craig on August 6, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    So teaching one’s children the truth is “brainwashing”?

    How bout some facts that dispute the facts posted in this article??? You have proof that OxFam ISN’T anti-Israel despite it’s public boycott campaigns???

    Phreak on August 7, 2009 at 12:16 pm

      I have learned it this way.

      When they have “no facts”, resort to name-calling. In politics when Yo Mama has “no facts”, he plays the race card. It shows they are washed up.

Debbie, British Jews who aren’t self-hating have been avoiding Oxfam like the plague since at least the 70’s. More importantly, it appears all three Americans who hitchhiked to Iran may be Jewish. The one guy was somewhat obvious, but the other two didn’t really rate on my Jew Meter. BTW, I have a young, fat female relative who converted to Islam and agitates against Israel under an adopted surname which probably serves to keep her head attached to her shoulders. I’m the only one in the extended family who doesn’t “accept” her. I’m like a candle in the wind, Debbie.

Sex and the City, both series and movie, consisted of slutty middle aged women trying to get laid by younger men for the most part. Unless one is into the Lifetime Channel or Desperate Housewives, the “fun before the flash” genre is not very entertaining. I hope that Ahava can find a better spokeswoman for its products.

So Oxfam says Israel is occupying “Palestine.” Since, until 1967, when Israel went in IN SELF DEFENCE, AFTER JORDAN HAD ATTACKED IT, that land belonged to Jordan, and nobody said a word about an autonomous homeland for the “Palestinian” people, isn’t that as good as admitting that Jordan is Palestine? If Oxfam wants to alleviate the suffering of the “Palestinians,” why don’t they demand that Jordan take them in.

I admired Oxfam in College, had no idea of their history-wish I had known that back then.

mindy abraham on August 7, 2009 at 5:37 am

To deal with oxfam and the rest of these so-called human rights orginazations which continue to vilify Isreal is to declare them enemy progandist and let the chips fall where they may, it is about time they are held to be responsible for their distgusting actions.

Drakken on August 8, 2009 at 2:50 pm

I had no idea of these murdering thugs. Thanks Debbie great work.

How about a big fat F U to OX SCAM? And tell Kristin Davis to get her head out of her ass.

sjh on August 10, 2009 at 3:17 pm

Still, let’s hope for the best. Perhaps she will be shocked by the force, insistence, and blackmail and realize they’re hateful and wrong. We’ll see…

Debbie you are a BITCH and racist slut!

Alicia on July 9, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Dear Debbie.
I truly did not know about OxFam. Thank you for this information. I believe you are a beautiful intelligent humanitarian. People who cannot come up with a rational argument are going to spew invective. It doesn’t mean what they are saying, it only means that they are angry that you told the story so well, and their combined anger and stupidity could only come up with a string of insults. Keep after them!
