* Companies attacked for supporting Israel occupation
A new report by the UK charity War on Want has accused a number of
companies of complicity in what it describes as Israel's war crimes
against the Palestinians.
The document names companies such as Caterpillar, train operator
Connex, and retailers Tesco, Sainsbury and Waitrose as being amongst
those it holds as complicit.
Connex is criticised because it has taken part in constructing a light
rail system that will link Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem to
the other side of the city, which it sees as supporting illegal
occupations. The retailers have been identified as selling wine and
other goods that are produced within occupied territories.
