Truth be told …..
" … A French court has ordered a Pro-Palestinian Authority group affiliated with the Boycott Israel movement to compensate the company and to stop all activities alleging that SodaStream products are illegally made and sold…"
If you are in any doubt as to the bridge building and positive effect the Sodastream factory in Ma'aleh Adumim has for local Palestinians and Israeli's alike, watch this video made by United With Israel > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl85AL1l0H0. Better still, forward it to Guardian readers.

In support if SodaStream’s amazing peace initiative (and as a response to BDS and to Fox’s boycott), we should all go out and buy a SodaStream soda maker and their products, and to encourage everyone to do so.

We should sue soda stream for hiring Arabs. In fact, no Arabs should work in Israel and we should boycott companies that do.

I'm all in favor of BDS. And it would be against a country whose name starts with the letter "I." That country is not Israel, but Italy, which just found Amanda Knox guilty after finding her innocent. No new evidence was presented, but the marsupials in charge of the prosecution changed their theory of why the murders were committed: The guy who was convicted of killing Meredith Karcher (and who confessed) didn't flush the toilet.
What should be flushed is the entire system of Italian "justice" which apparently hasn't changed since Caligula. I urge colleges and universities in America to boycott all Italian products made in Italy, starting with Perugina chocolates, as Knox was originally convicted in Perugina. Guess I won't be getting that Lambo anytime soon.

I have gut sympathy for Knox, for reasons you allude to, but stepping back from it, there really seem to be a lot of factors that suggest some guilty role on her part.
