UPS apparently has decided to make its own Mideast policy by
refusing to deliver packages to Jewish areas in the West
Bank and Golan Heights, but not Arab areas, even those run
by terrorists. So, if you need to send a package to Israel,
don't use UPS. See below. Thanks Debbie.

Package Apartheid: UPS is Official Delivery Service of the
Jihad (DHL Much Better)
~By Debbie Schlussel
With the Judeo-Christian holidays upon us, now is one of the
biggest package shipping times of the year. And given that,
I hope you, dear readers, will reject UPS in favor of DHL
for your package deliveries. Apparently, UPS is the official
package delivery service of the jihad and practices delivery
apartheid against Jews.
I thought the "P" stood for Parcel, but I was wrong--it's
the United Palestinian Service.
Yesterday, I received this e-mail from reader Ruth G.:
A friend of mine has a son learning in the Gush in Israel.
She wanted to send him a package. She called UPS about
shipping her package to Gush Yeshiva [DS: A yeshiva is a
Jewish academy] in the Gush EtZion. UPS told her they do not
deliver packages beyond the green line. He would have to go
the Jerusalem to pick it up. My friend asked if they deliver
packages to Ramala. The reply was yes. After further
research for a delivery service she called DHL, they had no
problem taking her package and delivering it to her son.
Are you aware of this? Why won't UPS deliver in all areas of
the State of Israel?
Last night, I called UPS to verify this, and, in fact it is
true. Not only is it true, but UPS will not recognize even
parts of Israel that are within the "Green Line," such as
the Golan Heights. A man from UPS read me the following
statement (which is not on the UPS website--perhaps they are
too cowardly to acknowledge this online):
UPS service is provided to and from most addresses within
Israel and the Palestine [sic] Authority area, except for
Jewish settlements in the West Bank, a few remote areas in
the Golan Hieghts, and the Southern Negev desert.
I asked the UPS employee if I could send a package to
"Palestinian" areas of the West Bank. He said yes. I asked
him if I could send a package to terrorist infested
Ramallah. He said yes. I asked him if I could send a package
to Arab areas in the Golan Heights. Again, the answer was
I asked the man why UPS would not deliver to Jewish areas of
these regions. He responded, "for security reasons. It's
dangerous there." A big, fat lie--the Jewish areas are the
only safe areas in these regions. In the Palestinian areas,
the UPS man might be tortured and/or beheaded and his
"package" castrated without anesthetic, as is a traditional
form of torture there.
I asked the UPS employee how it could possibly be safer in
the streets of Ramallah, where Fatah and HAMAS terrorists
are killing each other and Westerners, daily, than it was in
Gush Etzion. "I don't know. I just work here. I don't set
policy," was the response.
Well, now we know the official "policy" of UPS--giving in to
Islamic terrorists and their anti-Semitic views.
The Etzion block is an important place in Israeli history
and Jewish history. There were Jews living in villages there
well before the State of Israel existed. It is the "Southern
Gateway" to Jerusalem. History of Gush Etzion is on the
official Gush website.
In 1948, all four Gush Etzion settlements were totally
destroyed. Arab Muslims tortured and murdered 240 men and
women, with another 260 being taken into captivity (and
tortured). Prime Minister Ben Gurion in 1948 eulogized the
defenders of Gush Etzion and their heroic stand against the
I can think of no battle in the annals of the Israel Defense
Forces which was more magnificent, more tragic or more
heroic than the struggle for Gush Etzion - If there exists a
Jewish Jerusalem, our foremost thanks go to the defenders of
The heroism of the people of the Etzion Bloc in the face of
Islamic terrorists is captured in a great (and sad) book I
enjoyed reading, "Siege in the Hills of Hebron: The Battle
of the Etzion Bloc." Now, the new battle is apparently in
the package delivery arena. Since anti-Semitic UPS won't
deliver to Jewish areas, I suggest you send your packages
via DHL, which has no such phony "security" problems. And
tell your friends and family, too. (Ironically, DHL is
German-owned; UPS is supposed to be American.)
Today, they won't deliver to Jewish areas. Tomorrow, it will
be Christian areas. But the Islamic terrorist-infested
areas, no prob. UPS: Official delivery service of the Jihad.
DHL: Still free and strong.
JUDEA & SAMARIA are clearly and unquestionably JEWISH!
