I never like giving business to German companies. I wouldn’t buy a Mercedes or Volkswagen. Is Hertz a German company I should avoid?February 1, 2015 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1056712
Not according to Wikipedia.February 1, 2015 4:29 am at 4:29 am #1056713
I should hope you dont take Aspirin, it was invented by Bayer
And when you buy tape dont buy BASFFebruary 1, 2015 4:33 am at 4:33 am #1056714
Hertz is and always was American.
zd: Aspirin is manufactured by many companies, not just Bayer. Besides that aspirin’s patent expired long ago, Bayer lost all its American trademarks and patents at the onset of WWI.February 1, 2015 4:42 am at 4:42 am #1056715
They don’t make money on generics.
Do you mean cassette tapes? I don’t think they make them any longer, but anyhow, that division was spun off and is now a French company called Emtec which makes computer data storage media.February 1, 2015 5:13 am at 5:13 am #1056716
yayin yashan bkli chadash u shouldn’t drink Coca Cola since they supported the Nazi’s during WW2February 1, 2015 6:17 am at 6:17 am #1056717
Thanks for the replies. I usually rent from a Jew whenever I have to rent in Brooklyn, but I’m gonna be out of town and want to know my options. Hertz with usaa or aaa is one of the cheapest, and has normal customer service ratings.February 1, 2015 6:30 am at 6:30 am #1056718
I just checked wikipedia, and Hertz was actually Jewish. That’s pretty ironic. (Volkswagen was actually also started by a Jew, but the Nazis took it over.)February 1, 2015 7:58 am at 7:58 am #1056719
yayin yashan bkli chadash wasn’t all companies originally stared by jewsFebruary 1, 2015 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #1056720
BASF , Bayer and AGFA are all companies that were spun off from IG Farben who made the Zykklon B Gift Gas for Auschwitz.
I am well aware that Bayer no longer holds the patent on Aspirin, I said they invented it, but they still sell Bayer Aspirin
Other well known German companies are SAP (A software company) and Siemens (A multinational copration that makes lots of stuff)
The Euro is essential a German Currency as its basically controlled by Germany (and to an extent France)
And finally you might as well boycott IBM as well since they made the Punch cards that helped automate the mass executionsFebruary 1, 2015 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #1056721

German products are known for being high quality.February 1, 2015 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #1056723
Lior just like blood diamondsFebruary 1, 2015 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm #1056724
ZD, it’s all or none, is it? Boycott all aspirin or none? Boycott German companies and non-German companies which used to be part of German companies, or boycott nobody?
Lior, the Germans are also known for murdering 6 million of us. With high quality products.February 1, 2015 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #1056726
Depending how far you want to avoid German products, here is some starting points:
Made in Germany: Most pencils (i.e. what you use in school)
Invented in Germany: Aspirin (as zd mentioned), frankfurters (hot dog), MP3, the pregnancy test, standard sizes for envelops, office paper, printers, notebooks, ring binder, filling cabinets
German brands: Hugo Boss, Escada, Siemens, Fanta soda (before Coke bought it – fantastisch, i.e. fantastic), Nivea, Agfa, Adidas, PumaFebruary 1, 2015 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm #1056727
Lior don’t forget about bratwurstFebruary 1, 2015 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1056728
I don’t want to give Germany money. I don’t care who invented what. The Germans were, and still are considered the pinnacle of civilization. They murdered us to maintain that high quality. As high as Nazi quality may be, its Nazi quality.February 1, 2015 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1056729
yayin yashan bkli chadash the Germans deserve to get a taste of their on medicine I for one am glad the Muslims are over running Germany, serves them rightFebruary 1, 2015 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #1056730
The reality is its almost impossible to boycott German products .Its easy not to buy a Mercedes or a Volkswagen but almost impossible to boyctt Bayer.
And how many people here buy Gasoline which comes from Saudi Arabia whose money goes to support terrorism. There is really nothing you can do in a world economyFebruary 1, 2015 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #1056731
There are Jewish people in Germany.February 1, 2015 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1056732
The reality is its almost impossible to boycott German products .
Again I ask: does it have to be all or none?February 1, 2015 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #1056733
I’m German-made, so I guess you can boycott me.February 1, 2015 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1056734
People want to boycott Mercedes because they were in the camps, but do buy Bayer and BASF products who made the Zykon B Gift gas.
Frankly I have been in Germany and I saw plenty of other jews thereFebruary 1, 2015 11:57 pm at 11:57 pm #1056735
shebbesonian only goyimFebruary 2, 2015 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1056736
boycotting Germany isn’t a logical decision. There is no logic in boycotting a country based on Something their parents/Grandparents did. And to that end why just Germany? The Nazis had many eager helpers Ukraine, Poland and certainly the Baltic countries should be boycotted too?!
Rather it is an emotional decision. Thus asking questions based on logic makes no senseFebruary 2, 2015 12:06 am at 12:06 am #1056737
Shouldn’t Spanish goods be boycotted by Jews due to the Inquisition, expulsion and burning Jews at the stake?February 2, 2015 12:07 am at 12:07 am #1056738

Lior. Mazel tov. Are you saying michiyas amalek is a “mitzvah sichliyas” that you would have come up with on your own? Are you saying we have a mitzvah to kill all germans? Please elaborateFebruary 2, 2015 2:45 am at 2:45 am #1056742

ubiquitin yep but all the Germans will be killed by muslims A.K.A. ProxyFebruary 2, 2015 4:30 am at 4:30 am #1056745
Why do you think the Muslims will kill the Germans? Some of the Muslims are some of the Germans. Will they kill themselves?February 2, 2015 4:31 am at 4:31 am #1056746
If you think the Nazi movement in Germany was just their grandparents and is dead now, you’re delusional. Being that being a Nazi was a status of cultural pride, together with their quality products, it was passed in many families from generation to generation. They want us dead now as much as ever.February 2, 2015 6:26 am at 6:26 am #1056747
YYBC yep just like the muslimsFebruary 2, 2015 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #1056748
um yayin Nazisim is actually illegal in Germany.
I’m not saying not to boycott I’m in fact defending the boycott. I’m saying that it isnt based on logic. If ou feel an emotional nee to avoid Germany (and only German for some reason, and not all German products) By all means go ahead. Im pointing out to Z-Dad that he shouldnt point ot logical falicies with your boycott since it isnt based on logic. I am commiting the same error, case in point somebody used a mitzvah from Hashem michiyas amalek to defend boycotting Germany. Sombeody else is appointing Muslims as shliach (?) to kill the Germans (He doesnt ellaborate where/when that will happen) I ask you are these statements logical?February 2, 2015 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1056749
ubiquitin yes cause Yishmael and Easu were in an alliance with each other, need I say moreFebruary 2, 2015 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #1056750
Hertz was founded in 1918 by Walter Jacobs, a Jew who lived in Chicago. He sold it in 1923 to John Hertz, a Jewish immigrant from Hungary. In 1926 Hertz sold the company to General Motors. GM sold it in 1953 and the company became independent. Jacobs continued to run the company until he retired in 1960; both Hertz and GM had more and bigger other business ventures. In 1967 Hertz was bought by RCA, whose chairman David Sarnoff was a Jewish immigrant from Belarus. In 1985, RCA was bought by GE, who immediately sold Hertz to the company that owned United Airlines. Ford would buy Hertz over a seven year period beginning in 1987. Ford spun if off in 1997 and bought it back in 2001. Ford sold it again to private investors in 2005 who took it public in 2006. Hertz bought Dollar and Thrifty within the past decade. The largest stockholder today is Carl Icahn, who owns about 9% of the company. Icahn is Jewish.
(I wish I had been the investment banker getting the commissions on all those flips of the company.)February 2, 2015 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1056751
“Being that being a Nazi was a status of cultural pride, together with their quality products, it was passed in many families from generation to generation.”
Nonsense. The Nazi party only existed for slightly more than 25 years.February 2, 2015 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1056753
Rema, Alot more. I’m sorry but I have no idea what you are talking about! Were in alliance when? Do you mean the Mufti and Hitler? why you talking about alliance I thought you said the Muslims will kill all the Germans thus being mekayem our mitzvahj of Michyas amalek which according to using Lior’s “logic” means we have to kill all descendants of German Nazis (though not Ukaranians, Austrians, LAtvians etc for some reason)February 2, 2015 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #1056754

Yayin I dont follow why would you consider giving a kkk member money?
Do you mean buying something from a kkk members granchild? If it makes you uncomfortable then dont as ive said regarding buying from Germany.
You do realize every illogical comment is furthering my point that avoiding german products isnt driven by logical factors.
Rema, im sorry what? Esav and yishmael are allied in the torah? Where? And how is that relevant?February 2, 2015 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #1056757
I hope none of you Drive Fords. Henry Ford was a Huge Anti-Semite and likely caused many jews to die in Nazi hands as he helped close the door to immigration from Europe to the USFebruary 2, 2015 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1056758
ubiquitin cause Esau is the spiritual ancestor of Christianity, and Yishmael is the spiritual ancestor of IslamFebruary 2, 2015 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #1056759
Ubiquitin: I am saying that the fact that it is illegal is irrelevant if it still exists.February 2, 2015 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1056760
Um yayin it is entirely relevant to the subject at hand Germany is so opposed/horrified to their past that the very movement/party is illegal, it is illegal to even deny the holocaust. The Holocaust education in Germany exceeds that of Yeshivish schools. They (as a Government and nation) utterly reject the Holocaust and the philosophy that led to it. Does that forgive what their ancestors did? Of course not! and if the thought of using a mihele oven or driving a BMW makes you uncomfortable, by all means dont.
Rema, I’m sorry are you trying to make sense or are you just proving that your position is based on emotion and not logic (which again to be clear is perfectly okay).
If you have a coherent point, please elaborateFebruary 2, 2015 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1056761
YYBC the fords should all be hanged
