Petition Drive: American University, Don’t Boycott Sabra Hummus

Andrew Wallin, and Emet at American University are saying boycotting Israel is hypocritical and unhelpful to the cause of peace.

Some American University Students want Eagle’s Nest and American University to boycott Sabra Hummus.

They accuse the Strauss Group, Sabra’s holding company, of giving care packages to the soldiers of the Givati Brigade and the Golani Brigade unethical. So you can understand where they’re coming from.

Andrew Wallin, and Emet at American University are saying these soldiers make unimaginable sacrifices for the security of the State of Israel, denying care packages to soldiers during some of the most difficult times of their young lives hardly seems fair. Boycotting Israel is hypocritical and unhelpful to the cause of peace. American University and Eagle’s Nest, do not let a minority of students dictate what their peers may purchase.

They just started a petition drive online (HT to Malka Fleischer), directed at President Neil Kerwin, American University and Eagle’s Nest. Go, please, and sign.

    I don't eat Sabra Hummus because it has Canola Oil in it.

  2. Let them protect themselves and then they can eat what they want.

  3. Gil Gilman says:

    If not for the canola oil I would gladly order a case.

  4. Sabra humus is awesome, so is their salsa. Need to send it along with their guacamole too. Help donate to send it to all the IDF who are awesomely the bravest men and women.

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    consider that Sabra is now owned by Pepsi Cola, these university academics show their poor intelligence since they are boycotting the American company Pepsi Cola. Since American universities boycott American companies, American companies should withdraw their donations to them.

    This plan of these universities must be Hamas and Hezbollah and palestinean backed since they are so cunning to mislead America.

  6. Why on earth boycott Israel? Is there not a more obvious candidate to a moral cry? After all, we are talking to university people, aren’t we?
