The power of social media has been used for good. Online retailer Amazon had been selling products that depicted an Israeli flag splattered with blood. Many Israelis such as Fellowship Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein – as well as many friends of Israel – took to social media to voice their opposition. And today, The Times of Israel's Stuart Winer reports that Amazon has pulled the offending anti-Israel products:
Apparently prompted by the criticism, Amazon removed the products later Thursday.
A selection of items, including mobile phone cases, doormats, mouse pads, pillow covers and shower curtains were available from various suppliers, all with the same design — an Israeli flag with bloodstains across it...
The Foreign Ministry said it was “shocked and revolted in light of Amazon’s agreement to sell anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic products of the worst kind,” Channel 2 reported. “This kind of product spreads hatred, racism, and violence — and we call on the Amazon company to immediately stop selling these items.”
