Ynet has reported the story of a Canada-based Israeli, Shani Bar-Oz, whose down-town Vancouver store selling  Israeli-made toiletries has been the target of  regular anti-Israeli protests. The local community and others, boosted by publicity given to the story in Ynet, has responded with a “Buycott”, which, apparently, has generated new business for the store. As has happened elsewhere where “Buycotts” have been implemented, the campaign against Bar-Oz has backfired, with new orders pouring in.

“People won’t stop calling and ordering products on the phone and online (…) I’m now preparing for the boycotts of ‘Apartheid Week,’ but at least I understand that there are so many supporters behind me”
