The Lonely Planet’s guide to Israel and the Palestinian Territories has a recommendation for shopping at the Ahava Factory Outlet and Store. Please take five minutes this weekend to explain to Lonely Planet that there is an international boycott campaign against Ahava. Ahava is engaged in illegal practices, making products in a factory in an illegal Israeli settlement–Mitzpe Shalem– that it then falsely labels as “Products of Israel’. Please make sure you choose the option “Warning: Health or safety risk; theft or scam’ when making your complaint.
