I confess that I never heard of Debbie Schlussel until this morning, when a friend sent me her article “Scarlett Johansson, Israel, Oxfam & SodaStream: Starlet’s No Hero; History of Hanging w Israel Boycotters.”

You know me, I’m a sucker for unexpected news, so I dug right in, but before I did, I checked Debbie’s About page and discovered some stunning facts: did you know that as both an attorney and a frequent New York Post and Jerusalem Post columnist, her writings and commentary on radical Islam and her legal actions against radical Islamic parties have gotten a great deal of attention — and results? She caused FBI Director Mueller to revoke an award to an American Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist. She caused Caribou Coffee to have its worst financial quarter ever, when Schlussel exposed the coffee chain’s radical Islamic ownership.

And she went undercover, dressed as a religious Muslim woman, to the Islamic Center of America, to expose its support for terrorism, and anti-American, anti-Semitic hate.

So I wasn’t surprised to find out that Schlussel does not have the highest opinion of Scarlett Johansson. She “obviously knew what she was getting into when she chose to lend her name, face, and presence to Oxfam, an organization that has been openly antisemitic, anti-Israel, and pan-Arabist for decades. It was that way when I was in high school. It’s not news,” she writes.

All of that is completely true. London religious Jews wouldn’t dream of setting foot inside an Oxfam thrift shop. It’s one of those well known things: you can buy Coke without a hechsher and you don’t shop at Oxfam.

 

“And yet Johansson–who had no problem “dating” (euphemism) anti-Israel Iran apologist Sean Penn, and attending a dinner honoring the Emir of Qatar, Israel-boycotter extraordinaire and owner of anti-Israel, anti-American Al-Jazeera–also had no qualms with Oxfam’s vicious anti-Israel doctrine for the eight years during which she was involved in the organization.”

“If you believe she didn’t know about and didn’t agree with Oxfam’s radical views,” writes Schlussel, “then you also believe the same about Barack Obama sitting in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church. And I have some land in Gaza to sell you.”

Schlussel very much doubts Johansson’s pro-Israel credentials, pointing to the actress’s PR statement in response to the Oxfam imbroglio. “She supports Israel AND Palestine. But what is Palestine? I thought pro-Israel people realized there is no ‘Palestine.’”

Schlussel insists the star “didn’t sign on to be pro-Israel. She signed on to make a sexy Superbowl ad and make a lot of money. Cha-ching.”

But Johansson is not the only one getting skewered by Schlussel, who, in 2002, was named by radical Muslim University of Michigan Regent Candidate Ismael Ahmed as the reason for his defeat. You thought SodaStream were the good guys, seeing as they stick it to the left with their kum ba ya hiring policy in Judea and Samaria? You wish.

“SodaStream is one of those typical Israeli companies that panders to Muslims because they are politically correct and think this will help them escape the Judenrein boycott Israel campaign,” Schlussel rages. “They hired a lot of Palestinian Muslim workers. They built an on-site mosque, forever making that mosque (and the ground beneath and surrounding it) Dar Al-Islam ["Islamic land"] in the eyes of Islam. That’s Scarlett Johansson’s kind of company.”

What a huge mistake that was. “But because the company is owned by Jews, it’s never enough,” Schlussel warns. “No ‘good deed’ toward Muslims goes unpunished. Dhimmis are useful idiots, always and forever.”

“Scarlett Johansson as Israel’s new spokesmodel? Not even close,” declares Schlussel. “Courageous? Not even in the same ballpark.”

  1. she is the best, no doubt about it. Debbie, I mean.

  2. Adam Green says:

    Debbie. Is pure brilliance!

  3. Gil Gilman says:

    What I gleaned from this article is Caribou Coffee having radical islamist ownership.

  4. Moishe Pupik says:

    Although, if their coffee is good, what's the problem? I'd drink anti-Semitic coffee. Maybe not all-out Nazi coffee, but some of my best coffees were made by anti-Semites.

  5. Can we never trust anyone??? How do we check anything that the media throws up? Every day is another disappointment and another anti-Israel attack.

  6. Bob McEwen says:

    Beneficial article…….inverted headline. Oligarchies/government controlled societies
    are Left wing.

  7. most people don't know once a mosque is set, it remains muslem land forever but she must know her name in holywood will be blackballed byMany there so it doesn't seem a good career move.

  8. Schlussel is right! …Looking for possible love from whoever and for whatever, Jews jumped for Joy about Scarlett Johansson telling Oxfam off …NOT so FAST people, there is not real love there for you but for the money you produce

  9. Aliza Wiseman says:

    a very good feature.

  10. Dan Friedman says:

    One thing we now know about Schlussel: Unlike Scarlett she has nothing to lose.

  11. What is she trying to say? That there must never be Israeli and Palestinian partnerships, working together? That hatred, war and conquest must forever be the way? Whatever her past associations, her affiliation with SodaStream has done more to point out the vitriolic attitude of Palestinians toward their own people who want to work with Israelis than any anything else ever could.

  12. Oxfam….says we are pro Palestine…let’s make 550 of them lose their jobs.

  13. Schlussel is an outlier who never got the FBI to revoke anything except in her own mind. Get a clue.
