Orange ready to boycott Israel ‘tomorrow’ – CEO

7 posts in this topic

http://rt.com/business/264889-orange-threats-leave-israel/

Telecoms giant Orange, part-owned by the French government, is ready to cut ties with Tel-Aviv, said CEO Stephane Richard, as it is severely criticized in France and Egypt for providing services in areas acknowledged by UN as occupied by Israel.

“I am ready to abandon this tomorrow morning,” Orange chairman and CEO Stephane Richard told reporters in Cairo on Wednesday. “I know that it is a sensitive issue here in Egypt, but not only in Egypt... We want to be one of the trustful partners of all Arab countries.”

However, Richard said he wanted to avoid legal risks for the company and not expose Orange to possible penalties.

 Good for them everybody should cut ties with israel. Quit supporting terrorism and just about every problem we face. No bullshit income taxes no more bullshit wars based on lies. No more austerity no more supporting another nation no more whining little cockoaches demanding special treatment, no more of this bullshit system of phony ownership rigged elections. Propaganda as news. No more asswipes trying to steel what others earned. NO MORE NEW WORLD ORDER OR DHS abusing people I mean a whole bunch of good  things would come of this for everybody.

French firm Orange backtracks on Israel decision

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2015/06/06/414602/France-Orange-Richard-Stephane-Richard

 

The chairman of French communications company Orange says it will continue operating in Israel, despite a previous announcement that it would halt its work there.

Stephane Richard said that he “sincerely” regretted a “controversy" over the French telecoms firm’s ties with Israel.

Richard denied that Orange would soon end its brand-licensing agreement with Partner, Israel’s second largest mobile operator.

Orange announced plans to end its operation in Israel earlier this month. It planned to cease cooperation with Israeli operator Partner Communications Company headquartered in Tel Aviv over the latter’s illegal activities in Palestinian territories.

The comments from Richard come just 2 days after Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu threatened the French government to "distance itself publicly from the miserable statement and the miserable action of a company that is partially owned by the government of France.”

 

And there is also this

Israeli-American tycoons Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson have vowed to punish those who boycott Israel, focusing their attacks first on US campuses.

The campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel over its apartheid policies toward the Palestinians has gained momentum globally in recent months.

This week, the French telecommunications giant Orange announced to withdraw its brand from the Israeli market.

In response, media mogul Haim Saban vowed on Saturday to fight back so forcefully against Orange that any other company thinking of boycotting Israel would reconsider it.  

“We do have an anti-Semitic [sic] tsunami that’s coming at us,” said Saban of the international campaign to boycott and isolate Israel.

He said Israeli lobbies will create a climate that forces any business group considering boycotting Israel to revise its strategy.

This isn't the first time I've seen this kind of pressure put on people who tried to go up against them. It's a shame they buckle like that.
