Any Transaction that Benefits Israel not Permissible: Ayatollah Sistani

Iraq’s prominent Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani has advised against trading goods that bring about benefits to the occupying Israeli regime.

The top Iraqi cleric was asked whether it is allowed to sell goods to or buy them from the companies that allocate part of their income to supporting Tel Aviv.

“It is not permissible to trade Israeli products and [engage with] the companies that we are sure to be effectively backing Israel,” Ayatollah Siatani’s office said on its website.

In recent years, a campaign boycotting Israeli products has been growing rapidly worldwide, causing heavy losses to the regime’s firms.

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement was initiated in 2005 by over 170 Palestinian organizations and later turned international. The movement is meant to initiate “various forms of boycott against Israel until it meets its obligations under international law” and end its decades-long occupation of Palestinian lands.
