Air Canada is outsourcing maintenance work for its B787 and B767 jets to Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a leader in drone production that is wholly owned by the government of Israel.
HP provides on-going support and maintenance to a biometric ID system installed in Israeli checkpoints in the occupied West Bank that deprive Palestinians of the freedom of movement in their own land and allows the Israeli military occupation to grant or deny special privileges to the civilians under its control.
HP is also working with the Israeli government to manufacture and distribute a biometric ID system for all Israeli citizens, which categorizes citizens by their ethnic background and serves to discriminate against Arab citizens. HP manages the IT infrastructure for the Israeli navy and supplies the Israeli army with equipment and services specific to the needs of the military occupation. It is involved in the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the intricate mechanisms of physical separations and restrictions of movement.
HP also supports Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land by providing a computerized storage system to an illegal settlement.

There are 13,000 Airbnb listings in Israel, though investigations have revealed that many of the properties are actually located in settlements built on stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank. By allowing users to list and rent these properties and taking 9-15% from hosts and guests, Airbnb is making money off of Israel’s continued military occupation of Palestinian land and helping facilitate settlement activity.
