Pips squeak as boycott bites

I might be mixing metaphors there, not sure. See this Ynet report.
Fruit growers in Israel have reported delays and reductions in orders from abroad since the military operation in Gaza was launched, due to various boycotts against Israeli produce.

Farmers say much of their produce is being held in warehouses due to canceled orders, and fear a sharp decrease in fruit exports to countries such as Jordan, Britain, and the Scandinavian countries.....

Eshel says the boycott did not exist before the Gaza offensive was launched. "It's getting worse, and more voices can be heard calling to boycott Israeli merchandise," he said. "Until the operation began we had excellent business, though the economic recession in Europe was causing a slight fall in the market."
Israel is a fitting case for boycott with or without these crimes in Gaza but they are educating people as to the true nature of the State of Israel and the zionist project and ideology.
