Queensland Senator Mark Furner joined Tasmanian Senator Catryna Bilyk at the Max Brenner Chocolate shop which has been targeted by those advocating the Boycott, Divestment and sanctions against Israel.

Australia/Israel executive director Colin Rubenstein told J-Wire: “They spoke at a meeting about their experiences in Israel at the end of which  they insisted on visiting Max Brenner’s as a show of solidarity.”

Senator Mark Furner described the boycott as “unnecessary” and offensive  with some  echoes from  the boycott of Jewish shops in the 1930s and was highly critical of the   people behind it .
