Lush has been furiously criticised after a ‘boycott Israel’ sign was put up in a shop window in the wake of Hamas terrorist attacks on the country.
The UK-based cosmetics retailer has long faced criticism for its controversial political gestures but the sign on a shop in Dublin provoked particular anger – with social media users calling it ‘disgusting’ and accusing the chain of ‘supporting terror’.
It comes as horrific footage emerged of a woman apparently mocking the victims of Hamas attacks. The woman, who has a Palestine flag painted on her cheek, asks the man filming ‘Are your people dead? to which he replies ‘Yes’.
Reports of antisemitic incidents in Britain since the weekend have tripled compared with the same period last year after Hamas terrorists first crossed into Israel on Saturday, according to the Community Security Trust, a Jewish charity.
The number of people killed in Hamas’s attacks on Israel has risen above 1,200, officials said. That includes 260 revellers gunned down at a music festival, and whole families – including children’s and babies – who were massacred in a kibbutz.
Israeli air strikes on Gaza have killed 900 Palestinians, according to the territory’s health ministry.
