Call for a boycott of USA goods.

Like in many other countries, a Turkish consumer organization call for a boycott of USA, UK and Israelis goods.

I understand the frustration and anger among many Muslims but I simple don't understand why the USA, UK and Germany for example must be boycotted. And it became ridiculous by spreading conspiracy theories involving bar codes and hidden Israeli flags. One text message circulating in the Netherlands claimed that Aldi and Lidl, two German popular retail chains among immigrants in Europe, would "donate part of their profits to Israel."

Okay, boycott the USA produced goods! But be consequent! Don't turn your computer on, Windows is an USA made product. And when you don't use Windows then you for certain have an Apple Mac, also American.

You can replace Pepsi Cola or Coca Cola easily with Cola Turka, and Burger King and McDonald's with a nice kebab. But what about taking a trip abroad with one of the many Boeing's, American as well. And don't forget to boycott American movies and the many popular Hollywood made TV shows, that's over for now.

And the Turkish Army can stop functioning properly since they buy their weapons from Israel, the USA and Sweden...)

If we included UK made goods, you better can stop shopping: Unilever has more brands than you want to know.
