Tiffany's partner and one of its main suppliers of diamonds is Israel's Steinmetz Diamonds Group. The Steinmetz Diamond Group through the Steinmetz Foundation funds and supports the notorious Givati Brigade of the Israeli army which stands accused of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity by the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The Givati Brigade is responsible for the massacre of the Samouni family in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. On 4th January 2009 the Givati Brigade rounded up 100 members of the Samouni family and ordered them into the house of Wa'el Samouni. The house was then bombed, and rescue services were prevented from approaching for four days, with ambulances being fired on. When rescue workers were finally allowed access, they found buried beneath the rubble, traumatised children besides the corpses of their parents and siblings. The Givati had massacred 29 family members and in case anyone mistook their intent they left a message on one of the remaining walls of the house, daubed in Hebrew it read "The only good Arab is a dead Arab".

The Foundationís website boasted of "adopting" a unit of the Givati brigade, of "fostering close relationships with the commanders and their soldiers", of "buying equipment " for them specifically during Operation Cast Lead, that is, during their slaughter of the Samouni family.

All references were however deleted from their website once it came to public attention - but not before we took copies of their website:



The survivors of the Samouni family in a video message asked the people of the UK to reject diamonds processed by the Steinmetz Diamond company.

Tiffany's helped fund Steinmetz Kiodu diamond mine in Sierra Leone by $50 million. In return Steinmetz, through its Octea company, provides Tiffany's with its cut diamonds.

Tiffany's through its partnership with Steinmetz is complicit in the funding of war crimes in Gaza.

Please join us outside Tiffany's on the busiest shopping day of the year to demand they stop peddling in Israeli blood diamonds and stop their complicity in war crimes in Gaza.

Featured MP3 Podcast

"Prisoners of Faith and the faith of prisoners rotates around three important concepts. One is subber or patience, the second one is sacrifice because one cannot have patience if you are not prepared to sacrifice, and thirdly the concept of shahadah or martyrdom because if we have not been taught how to face failure then our lives become difficult, if we have not been taught how to face suffering our lives become even more difficult, and if we are not taught how to face death our lives are utterly miserable when it happens to us or to those close us.."
Veteran of the armed struggle against apartheid in South Africa, he was one of the youngest people to be imprisoned on Robben Island.
