This Ramadhan Check the Label- Don't break your fast with Israeli dates
Ramadan is a time of year when we remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Opening our fasts with dates that have come from land stolen from Palestinians goes against the spirit of this blessed month.
Israeli dates are grown in illegal settlements
And according to UN resolution 465:
Israeli's policy of building settlements and moving Israeli's into occupied Palestinian land is a violation of the fourth Geneva convention
Meanwhile Palestinians near these settlements live in abject poverty, unable to reap the rewards of their land.
