Oxfam Belgium produced the following poster encouraging the boycotting of Israeli products. The poster reads: "Israeli fruits have a bitter taste…reject the occupation of Palestine, don’t buy Israeli fruits and vegetables." Well-known Israeli brands and logos are declared as unfit for consumption. The message is blatantly political, and thus in clear contradiction of Oxfam’s mission statement. NGO Monitor consistently attempted to question Oxfam Belgium – via telephone and email – regarding their purpose in conveying the message against Israel. Oxfam Belgium refused to respond.
