It's an ethical organization that allocates a percentage of its gross revenues to philanthropic causes. As an ethical organization it can distinguish between oppressive states like Iran and a liberal democracy fighting for its survival against fundamentalist enemies bent on its destruction. Some of these fundamentalists are North American Marxists, who have been trying to push for the economic destruction of Israel through lies and disinformation.
The fanatics who want to boycott Israel have been trying, and failing, to get Mountain Equipment Co-Op (MEC) to be part of their bigoted plan. The membership of MEC has, at every opportunity, rejected their proposal and now, the Israel-haters have someone who goes by the name of Dru Oja Jay running for the board. I'd suggest you look at his picture. O.J. looks like he's been French-kissing light sockets.
To vote in the MEC Board elections, you must have been a member prior to January 5th of this year. Voters are permitted three selections.
The "BUYcott Israel" campaign to counter those who want to destroy the Middle East's only liberal democracy has suggested you pick from those candidates who clearly oppose anti-Semitism and the boycott of Israel. They are Bill Gibson, Morrie Schneiderman, Shauna Sylvestre and Jonathan Gallo.
If you were a MEC member before Jan. 5, 2011, you can vote at this link.
