Iran to Boycott 'Zionist' brands

Coke, Intel, IBM, Nestle.

A'jad is at it again. A search reveals "Jewish owned" zionist brands apparently also include Swiss owned Nestle.
Only AMD chip computers in Iran?
Not likely.

Iran to boycott 'Zionist' brands
Jpost 6/30/2010 18:11

Coca-cola, IBM and Intel are on Ahmadinejad's no-buy list.

Iran has banned “Zionist companies” in an amendment signed by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Army Radio reported on Wednesday.

The blacklist is made up of supposedly “Jewish-owned” American companies like IBM, Intel and Coca-Cola.

The boycott comes as a reaction to American and UN sanctions against Iran.

I'm really not sure what to think about this.

Noam Chomsky hasn't yet written an article about it informing me of the position I should take. I know I need to support the Iranian leadership here, but I'm just not sure how.

I noticed they didn't mention Microsoft. Guess that would be too much trouble for them if they were to do that.
