To H&M with regard to the establishment in Israel

As a customer at Hennes & Mauritz I would like to bring to your attention that I and many others are deeply disturbed by your current establishment in Israel.
You are opening stores in Israel at a time when the Israeli state is announcing plans to build another 50 000 housing units in the illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. By choosing to continue with your establishment you have damaged the credibility of your company and breached your own corporate responsibility statement.
I also note that H&M claims to support the Global Compact, through which, amongst other things, you undertake to make sure your own corporations are not complicit in human rights abuses. It is incredible to me that H&M should be developing business links with a state that is actively involved in human rights violations and a brutal military occupation which ruins the lives of millions of Palestinians.
By developing business interests in Israel, H&M is making itself complicit in the illegal and immoral practices of the Israeli state, and specifically those taking place today in the city of Jerusalem.
I urge H&M to withdraw from any activity in Israel until the country respects international law and the human rights of the Palestinian people. Until you do so, I will not shop at H&M.
Sincerely,
[Name]

    Shame! Shame! Shame!
    By investing in Israel, you have made it abundantly clear that international laws and human rights mean absolutely nothing to you! Next time I need to go shopping, I’ll keep that in mind!
