Yishai Calls for Boycott of Shufersal


Interior Minister Eli Yishai called on Wednesday for a public boycott of the Shufersal supermarket chain, following its announcement that it will be raising the prices of many products.

“The paradox of Shufersal’s announcement this morning about record profits on the one hand and the announcement of a price increase on the other hand, can be solved only through a boycott of the general public to convey a message that the secular, the religious, the hareidim, Arabs and other groups in the population will not remain indifferent to the ongoing process of making record profits on their backs,” said Yishai.
