Editor:

In her letter “Distortions of Israel, peace in L.A. Times” (Jewish News, Dec. 25, 2015), Ginette Weiner reported on the Jewish Voice for Peace, its hostility toward Israel and its support for the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement.

I would encourage readers of the Jewish News to check the Internet for listings of boycotted companies and businesses. Organizations such as the JVP are more than happy to provide such information. Patronize with your dollars those businesses that sell Israeli-made and other boycotted products and let those businesses know of your appreciation. (Many are under pressure from BDS supporters.) Then, contact organizations such as JVP to inform them that you, your friends and your family are countering their boycott with your actions.
