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.
