A good report in the NYT on how actress Scarlett Johansson is refusing to give up a pro-Israel ad campaign by endorsing Israeli drink company SodaStream, which has a factory in the West Bank.
Also the article goes on to discuss the BDS Movement (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction), which aims to economically delegitimize Israel and its occupation of Palestinian through economic channels and how the movement needs more momentum. A must read.
Down with Johansson!
Though not a call for enough action, a Jewish (just so we can get around the whole “anti-Semitic” accusations), New York Times columnist calls for a boycott of products from the illegal settlements in the West Bank.
