A manager of a local grocery in France was captured on film pulling dates that hailed from Israel because a Muslim customer complained and called them offensive.
The dates had been placed on a shelf that was advertising food for Ramadan.

But when a Muslim shopper expressed outrage, the manager rushed to pull the product.
The Times of Israel has more:
A manager at a local branch of a French supermarket chain was filmed last week removing Israeli dates from a store shelf after a Muslim customer shouted that they were offensive.
The dates were situated on a stall advertising food for the Muslim Ramadan month.
The incident took place in a branch of the Carrefour chain, in the town of Chambourcy west of Paris.
In a video posted online by activists advocating the boycott of Israel, the customer can be heard shouting “These products are an insult to Muslims.”
“Israelis shoot Palestinians like rabbits,” he says. “I don’t want to fund Israeli killing or Israeli occupation.”
The manager can be heard saying that he does not wish to address the customer’s political statements.
Israel’s embassy in Paris told the Ynet news site “The embassy closely follows and instances of boycott activity in France and holds continuous and intensice dialogue with businesses and law enforcement as well as the French government to stamp out the phenomennon, which is forbidden by French law.”
