Produk Boikot Israel (Walt Disney)

COMPANY : Walt Disney

PRODUCTS & AFFILIATED COMPANIES:

Disneyland
EuroDisney
Disney Products


RESEARCH FINDINGS :

Walt Disneys Millennium exhibition at the Epcot Centre in Florida depects Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is an illegally occupied city according to international law (UN resolution 242, 237 & 405)and can never be the capital of Israel. Of the 8 million dollars cost to set up the exibition, Israel contributed 1.8 million and worked with Disney to develop its content (see [2] ). This is part of Israels campaign to physically Judaise Jerusalem and mentally condition the world into accepting its claims over Jerusalem.

An Arab Leauge initiative to set up a boycott of Disney was saboutaged at the last minute by Saudi Prince, Walid ibn Talal, who is a major shareholder of Euro Disney said, “If we boycott Disney, Israel will win because it will impact our image negatively in United States.”. It is estimated that nearly 200,000 Arabs visit Disney each year and the total Disney trade with the Middle East amounts to over $100 million per year.

Disney Promotes Israeli Occupation

Background

Disney the love and entertainment king of millions throughout the world has stepped into political arena to promote Jewish claims over Jerusalem. Early in September the American Muslims for Jerusalem [AMJ], headed by Khaleed Turaani highlighted Disney’s plans to present Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel in an exhibition.

The Millennium exhibition, of Walt Disney opened at Epcot Centre in Florida on 1 October. Of the eight million dollars building cost, Israel gave 1.8 million. The exhibition is proposed to be the greatest show expected to attract millions of viewers from throughout the world.

Jerusalem is illegally occupied city according to international law. In particular: UN Resolution 242, which calls upon Israel to withdraw from the occupied territory. Resolution 237 rejects the annexation of Jerusalem and Resolution 405 further reaffirms that Jerusalem is occupied Palestinian territory.

Historically the Jews were driven out of Jerusalem in 70 CE, when Titus, the Roman General destroyed the Temple and ever since than there has been an insignificant population of Jews in Jerusalem.

In 1099, when the Crusaders captured Jerusalem they killed or exiled all Jews and it was only through the Magnanimity of Salah’udeen Ayubi that he allowed the Jews to return. In a census of 1170 we see a record of 1,440 Jews in all of Palestine.

Whereas the Arabs have always inhabited Jerusalem from time immemorial. When Muslims liberated Jerusalem and the majority of Arabs reverted to Islam the city remained free andopen to all.

Israel’s aim to physically Judaise Jerusalem and mentally condition the world into accepting its claims over Jerusalem seem to have reached new psychological spheres.

After the initiative set in motion to counter this blatant claim, the UAE Minister of Information and Culture Shaykh Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahayan called a meeting of Arab League ministers to boycott Disney and its products. It is estimated that nearly 200,000 Arabs visit Disney each year and the total Disney trade with the Middle East amounts to over $100 million per year. However, at the last minute a motion to boycott was not carried as the Saudi Prince, Walid ibn Talal, who is the major shareholder of Euro Disney said, “If we boycott Disney, Israel will win because it will impact our image negatively in United States.” One Arab official is reported in Palestine Times as saying, “we know that some Arab officials encouraged the company to ignore our protest.” Al-Nahayan, the UAE Minister on Abu Dhabi TV said, “he did not receive expected response from some Arab ministers during his intensive contacts with them."

Disney claims they have altered the exhibition as not to promote the Israeli claim. However, according to AMJ the exhibition still leave visitors with the false impression that Israel is not in violation of multiple international laws and UN Resolutions. The Jewish Chronicle, a London Based Newspaper, reported on the 24 Sept, “If you go and see the show there won’t be any doubt in your mind that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.”

Friends of Al Aqsa Call For Disney Boycott

It is without doubt if the Arab League had the spine to uphold the just cause of Jerusalem in where is Masjid al Aqsa than the fairy sporting Disney would not have succeeded in promoting the illegal Zionist plans to inculcate into the minds of the world that Jerusalem is their capital. Under the circumstances we call upon all morally conscious individuals to not only boycott Disney products and goods but more importantly to write and inform Disney of your boycott.

It is the grass-root support that is needed to be mobilised and the powers to be, either in Islamic countries or elsewhere to be informed of our sentiments. It is the duty of every law-abiding citizen to ensure those oppressors and usurpers of others rights and territories do not get away with their criminality.

Please inform the addressee below of your intentions to boycott because of their illegal promotion of Israeli claims. The need to inform Disney of their political misjudgement cannot be over emphasised:

Jewish Bulletin News

Israel's Foreign Ministry, which is sponsoring the exhibit, says it shows the centrality of the holy city to Muslims, Christians and Jews. But, says a Foreign Ministry statement, "there is no doubt that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel" and "the position of Jerusalem as the key component to the Israeli pavilion at Epcot speaks for itself without a clearer or stronger statement being necessary."

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak said last Friday that while Israel views seriously the threat of a boycott, "attempts to damage the status of Israel and Jerusalem as its united capital have failed in the past and will fail in the future."

Israel's Foreign Ministry contributed $1.8 million to the pavilion, which cost a reported $8 million, and worked with Disney to develop its content.

Who Won the Battles of Burger King and Walt Disney Productions?

"Arab League foreign ministers voted not to boycott Disney, saying the measures promised by Disney were positive. Since the decision was made before it could be ascertained that the recommendations had been carried out, there was word-of-mouth suspicion that the decision might have been influenced by the fact that one of Saudi Arabia’s richest entrepreneurs, Prince Walid Ibn Talal, owns almost a half-interest in the Euro Disney theme park just outside Paris."
