Lev Leviev is one of the world’s leading diamond retailers. In 1996, Leviev bought the controlling share in the company Africa-Israel, whose subsidiary companies are involved in settlement construction in the occupied West Bank. Leviev’s companies are involved in settlement construction in Mattityahu East and Modi’in Illit, close to the Palestinian village of Bil’in, as well as also Zufim, Maale Adumim and Har Homa.
New York-based Coalition for Justice in the Middle East, also known as Adalah-NY, has held several demonstrations at Leviev’s Manhattan store, garnering international attention. Two demonstrations were held outside Leviev’s diamonds store in bond street during 2008. For more information, see here.
