The author criticizes the ransacking of Tesco stores, part-closure of Sainsbury's stores and retailers being pressured to stop sourcing goods from Israeli firms in Great Britain. He says that importing conflict through produce on shelves will not serve the people nor the prospects for peace for the Palestinians or Israelis. He adds that the leadership of the Jewish community condemns the violence in retail stores.
