HP discriminating against Franco-Israelis


HP doesn’t let a Franco-Israeli register its product as Israeli citizen, forces him instead to register in “Occupied Palestinian territories”.

I received a letter from one of my readers, shocked to find that Israel is not in the drop-down menu that allows him to register his new HP printer. “Israel has been erased” says the distressed owner.

I bought an HP printer. It comes with a character recognition software (OCR) from IRIS, a Canon subsidiary.

The OCR software is included with the printer. When I wanted to activate it, it asked to register and specify my country of residence. I had to choose from a drop-down menu, and Israel was not there. On the other hand, I found “occupied Palestinian territories” (Palestinien Occupé, Territoire).

This is an HP Office Jet 6950 printer purchased… in Israel!

In the past, I worked in the field of document management, I had the opportunity to work with IRIS. It was a Belgian company that was bought by the Japanese Canon.

Ironically, the president of IRIS France (who certainly had nothing to do with it) was Serge Dahan, who is also president of B’nai B’rith!

It won’t change unless we do something about it.
