We can start by boycotting McDonalds. – Muhammad Ali

I’m not Muslim, but I’m on humanity side. I stopped everything that can help the war. Even my Muslim friends quit working from McD and so many companies just to show their support. – Calvin Singh

As Malaysians we are used to Israeli products. We aren’t able to boycott 100% but 70% should be possible. It isn’t hard just a little support will do. A lot of their products can be reduced. Anyways congrats to the flash mob at McD. – June Ed

Why are we using Facebook? It’s Jewish. – Azizul Zahadi

I want to boycott Israeli products as much as I can. I love my Islam brothers and sisters in Palestine. – Faizul Shazreen
