"The Israeli diamond industry generates about US$1 billion in funding for the Israeli military each year. So when someone buys a diamond from Israel they are helping to fund war crimes and other human rights violations in Palestine," said Sean Clinton, a leading campaigner against Israeli blood diamond.
“While there is some public awareness about the trade in blood-tainted, rough diamonds from Zimbabwe, the media in general ignores the far larger trade in blood tainted diamonds from Israel."
The aim of the campaign is to get all of us to boycott Israeli blood diamonds. There's already a campaign to boycott all blood diamonds--why wasn't Israel mentioned earlier?
