Palestinians boycott settler goods

Campaign urges dropping of Israeli goods for Palestinian products.

    Millions of dollars in Palestinian money helps Israeli businesses thrive in the West Bank, but now the Palestinian Authority is boycotting goods made by Israeli settlers.

    At least 3,000 Palestinian grassroots volunteers are leading the boycott campaign.

    Knocking door-to-door, they provide households with the information they need to help get rid of settlement products and replace them with Palestinian ones.

    This non-violent resistance has worked, but as Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports, the campaign also hurts those it is supposed to help.
