    Boycott Tropicana Orange Juice

    Assalamu alaikum

    Why boycott Tropicana?

    Tropicana, owned by PepsiCo, is the world's leading producer of orange juice.
    Since 2000, PepsiCo have donated more than $2m to the Republicans and the Bush Administration. This is more than 80% of all PepsiCo's political donations.

    The Governor of Florida, America's largest orange producing state, is Jeb Bush, brother of President GW. Until recently, the US was the world's largest producer of oranges, but with huge financial input from the US, Brazil has now overtaken America to became the world's largest orange producer. Brazil and Florida now grow between them nearly 50% of the world's oranges, 95% of which end up as juice.

    Boycott Tropicana - Boycott PepsiCo

    Then you will need to stop using your computer unless you are not using Windows or Word or Excel or Pwerpoint. (Microsoft is an American company.) Also, even though you may not be using an American based ISP, the nature of the internet necessiates that packets originating from your connection are probably going to a provided backbone in the U.S. SHAME on you for supporting the "evil America"!!!!

    So does that mean Muslims should not buy the cool new dual-core Intel processor laptops coming out now? The dual core version of the pentium M (code named Yonah) was designed at Intel's R&D facility in Israel.

    Personally, I'm hoping the US can eventually get off of it's dependency of oil from certain countries. Those countries allow terrorists to flourish there, so the US should not do business with them. Given that oil is many countries number one export, what do you think will happen if that goes away?

    Re: Boycott Tropicana Orange Juice

    People often tell me to boycot this that and the other because they are "anti-muslim". My whole family is non-muslim. Do I boycot them as well? Respect for ones parents is mandatory in Islam. That raises another point, do I respect my parents even though they are christians?

    And besides, all those muslims who live in the USA and pay US taxes, maybe they should stop paying taxes!

    Personally, I am also hoping that the US will also eventually get off its dependency on oil, as the largest consumer and polluter in the world, and take responsibility for global warming and reducing carbon emissions like every other developed nation has committed to doing.

    I am also hoping that the US will eventually stop warmongering and invading oil-rich countries under the guise of 'spreading democracy' with the express desire to privatise all its natural resources to American corporations, leaving the invaded nation impoverished and in bloodshed.
    We are all suffering because the US will not curb its appetite for oil, including the US.


    Re: Boycotts

    As members of the masses we have very little political influence, even those of us living in so-called democracies, but what we all do have as individuals is consumer choice.
    Every one of us makes a political aswell as material choice whenever we buy something. A boycott doesn't have to involve a complex media campaign, just a conscious choice.
    It is no coincidence that the biggest brands are also owned by the most unethical corporations. Some of them are unavoidable, but others we can refuse if we really want to.

    You could also go down the local computer shop, put a laptop under your coat and run off with it.

    How is that any different?

    I think his point was if Refugee or anyone else wants to boycott all goods from the US and Israel, that would have to include Microsoft, Apple, Intel, IBM, AMD, TI, Cisco, etc. It would be a neat trick to be able to use computers and the Internet while boycotting all of those companies.

    So on the "arabic" numerals thing. Al-Khwarizmi's book about arithmetic (not the al-gebra book, the other one) was introduced to Europe and that was how "Arabic" numerals were adopted in Europe.

    Care to guess what that book was called?

    ::eek:: Re: Boycott Tropicana Orange Juice

    Muslims also donated to Bush's campaign (a lot of muslims didn't want his opponents in because the vp would have been Jewish - pure antisemitism).

    Should we, then, boycott Islam?

    lol. No

    This is stupid. Why should anyone boycott their drinks, what differance does it make?

    Why must you Include Politics in everything?
    A few people boycotting them isn't going to harm, them.
    If you don't buy that product, its more then likely someone else will, including Muslims.
    And anyway, Tropicana is a great drink, Pepsi as well. Like hell i'd boycott that.

    So your saying doing something good, even if it is little, isnt worth it? Even though boycottong it may not make a major difference, but it is yuor intention to please Allah az wa jaal, even if it is small, so on Yawmul Kiyamah, you can say at least you tried.

    I cant belive youd rather drink a bunch of crap, then please Allah and help your Ummah, I still cant belive there is muslims like you out there. AUTHOBILLAH

    I do not need anyone telling me how i should Defend Prophet Muhamamd PBUH.
    I'm out there at various places, defending him and Islam from anti-islamists. Although my efforts are rather fruitless.

    Regardless,it is a drink. It is not the Drink compaies fault, for what the Newspaper did.
    Face it. Newspaper did. Governemt has no control over the Newspapers. Deal with it. Boycott Newspaper, not their goods, just because they come from that country.
    This demand you people make, are outragous.

    Do not forget...

    In 1997 the Government of Israel Economic Mission honored Coca-Cola at the Israel Trade Award Dinner for its continued support of Israel for the last 30 years and for refusing ro abide by the Arab League boycott of Israel. In contrast, Pepsi abided by the Arab League boycott of Israel which ended in May 1991.
