Amazingly enough, a company called FreedomCall believes it understands the Middle East...better than anyone else apparently. "As a result of the Israeli government action in the last few days we will no longer be in a position to consider doing business with yourself or any other Israeli company." This was a part of an email received by an Israeli company, alerting them that the British telecommunications firm was terminating its cooperation with them.
The Israeli company has decided not to appeal this absurd position, or even to answer the letter, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't. Here's the plan:
1. If you live in the UK, consider using any company OTHER THAN FreedomCall.
2. Write or call to the company:
FreedomCall Limited Company Number: 5027692
VAT Number: 827 0731 35
Registered Address: Hampton House High Street
East Grinstead. West Sussex.
England RH19 3AW
Telephone: 0800 279 6050
International: 0044 20 7192 0598
This is what they do...now consider hiring anyone else to do it for you...
From their website:
FreedomCall Limited provides fixed line services to home and business users.
I'm sure that makes them experts on the situation in the Middle East!
We work with some of the biggest names in the industry to deliver telecommunications services that meet the needs of home consumers and small and medium sized businesses.
Ah, that's it then...they are concerned that they might lose business if they don't bow to pressure and condemn Israel unfairly.
For the Home User
For the home we offer packages to suit all needs; pay-per-call or call inclusive OffPeak and AnyTime.
Of course, they don't care that 700,000 Israelis and their homes are now endangered by Hamas rockets being fired from Gaza. They don't care that it was the Arabs that started this war by shooting rockets, missiles and mortars at Israeli civilian cities.
Transferring to FreedomCall CPS (Carrier Pre Selection) is very easy;
so long as you don't mind ignoring what is right...
you keep your telephone number
but lose your sense of integrity....
you do not need any equipment and you do not have to dial a prefix number. In fact, all that changes is that you will receive the bill for your calls from FreedomCall and not BT so it will be much. much less!
and FreedomCall doesn't need any facts. They don't need to know about the 10,000 rockets fired at Israel in the last 7 years. They don't need to know about the school that was hit today in Beersheva, the mother that was critically injured. No, FreedomCall doesn't care about the facts, the truth...and so, dear friends, I hope you'll take the time to write to FreedomCall and tell them they missed the call on this one.
