Scarlett Johansson’s Silence Enrages ‘Boycott SodaStream’ Campaign

The world’s most enticing woman inadvertently is exposing the BDS as being bad for Arabs.

Kat Stoeffel wrote in New York Magazine this week that after she handed a bottle of seltzer from her SodaStream machine to her co-host at a holiday party, a “left-wing reporter said to the vodka drinkers, ‘enjoy your Palestinian blood cocktails.’”

Stoeffel, who now says she tells friends that her machine was a gift rather than having to own up to the truth hat she actually bought something from that awful factory occupied by Palestinian Authority workers, offered another nice quote.

“A lefty journalist friend of mine in Tel Aviv has a machine he keeps under his kitchen sink so that he doesn’t get embarrassed when other lefties come over for dinner,” said Ali Gharib, a reporter covering Middle East issues.

That is how ridiculous the Bash Israel crowd looks when it tries to keep up a fashion that gets uglier with time.

One of these days, when Intel, or Google or some other high-tech company in Israel realizes that they could a lot more good for Arabs by locating in Judea and Samaria and employing Palestinian Authority workers, the BDS can start boycotting computers.

But by that time, the Boycott folks will have gone the way of the peace process because SodaStream, soon with Johansson’s help, has done more for peaceful co-existence than anyone else.

In case you missed Johansson’s promo, here it is:

    Sounds like we’re back in Junior High School again “with the girls”. It just got very childish. Grow up and get a job like the SodaStream employees.

  14. Daniel Quinn says:

    The movement to boycott and divest from Israeli apartheid is hardly affected by the publicity-seeking actions of a second-rate actress. Entire governments are withdrawing their financial support from Israel as have much more well-respected and intelligent individuals such as Alice Walker and Stephen Hawking. Ms. Johansson's box office failures will continue apace. And so shall the noble cause of BDS.

    Arabs started coming from Syria, Tunisia,iraq etc..for the new
    jobs.
    before then it was a wasteland with a few landowners and Bedouins.

It seems that when you organize for even seemingly worthwhile purposes, the organizers and the organized all seem to think you owe them something, rather than them owing you something. They think they own your body, your brain, and your mouth. Just another reason that I am an independent in every way possible. Truth stands on its own against all comers and doesn't ned cheerleaders and a bandwagon to gain the upper hand.

  52. Daniel – you are a f*cking idiot !!!!!

  53. let them divest. Israel is Blessed by G-D A-lMighty and is independent economically. Its' innovations give life and pleasure to those who benefit from Israe-l such as the latest biotech advances.
    Israe-l is not apartheid Arab countries are!
    in Israe-l there are Arab mks all arabs vote,but among muslim arabs only arabs have rights and only muslims can vote.
    the arabs of samaria insist on not having one Jew live among them,
    they aren't just apartheid they are worse than Nazis.
    lying duplicitous arabs do evil and accuse the Jews of their own crimes.
    if you are a Christian ask yourself-why are Christians murdered in arab muslim lands? why in Bethlehem have the 80% of population that were Christian dwindled to 20%%.because of muslim love?
    muslim democracy?
    hypocrites all of you!
    Israe-l will prosper and your economies will tank

  55. Daniel,

    YoU are the most stupid idiot.
    Have you ever been to Israel to experience the truth?
    NO? so you fall in line with what the Arabs have to say. What those Jew hating scum have to say.
    I suggest that you, and others like you, should pay a visit to Israel, and see for yourself the truth, not the lies of the Arabs and some academics who fal in line with others, but have never been to israel to learn the truth.
    Visit Israel, and you will become an ambassador for IIsrael. not acccept all the lies. Remember what the Nazi Goebbels said. "The bigger the lie, the more often told, the more the world will believe it.
    "A yiou and others like you accept the Arab Nazi propaganda.

    As stated in the article, there was one Pal. worker who said he was enslaved and his name was not given. I do not remember who it was and where I read it, but someone tried to identify this worker and asked for information about him. It turned out there was no such person!

  61. Artur Dvořák says:

  62. Daniel Quinn says:

    Chaim Moshe Bergstein: Recall the words of the ancient Hebrew prophet Amos who proclaimed woe unto Israel for its great injustice and oppression of the poor. Zionist apartheid is anathema to ethical Judaism. BDS is here to stay: May justice roll down like a mighty river, and righteousness like an everlasting stream.

  66. Daniel Quinn says:

    Artur Dvořák — Wrong. Fact check and do your homework. The text of a letter sent from Hawking to the organisers of the high-profile conference in Jerusalem, clearly states that he was withdrawing from the conference in order to respect the call for a boycott by Palestinian academics.

    The full text of the letter, dated 3 May, said: "I accepted the invitation to the Presidential Conference with the intention that this would not only allow me to express my opinion on the prospects for a peace settlement but also because it would allow me to lecture on the West Bank. However, I have received a number of emails from Palestinian academics. They are unanimous that I should respect the boycott. In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference. Had I attended, I would have stated my opinion that the policy of the present Israeli government is likely to lead to disaster."

  75. Alan Rockman says:

    Daniel Quinn Sod off, Nazi boy. You're a Jew-hating POS…

    And…if you're so gung ho about Imperialist this and Imperialist that, Schicklgruber, you need to abandon your US hovel and go home to Ireland.

    Why?

    Because gutless, stupid, hypocrite Fascist that you are, YOU ARE ILLEGALLY OCCUPYING NATIVE AMERICAN LAND.

    Go home and get stuffed, Quinn.

    ALL ISRAEL-HATERS ARE JEW-HATERS PERIOD. End of story.

  76. Alan Rockman says:

    Thanks for proving how really stupid and cowardly you are, Quinn the Nazi…Yes, Israeli Jews can CRITICIZE Israel. Try being a Palestinian Christian, Queer or Minority criticizing Hamas or the PA…Oh, I can't hear you Quinn…and I sure can't hear them either – because they'd be murdered if they tried.

    But hey, you're a Nazi, period…and a gutless, hypocritical lying one at that.

  77. Alan Rockman says:

    Oh btw Quinn, when might you be vacating the land YOU OCCUPY, buddy. There's an Apache family I know that has more rights to it than you'll ever have. Or are you such a phony…like most Nazis are.

  78. Alan Rockman says:

    Daniel Quinn Yes, I can tell you worked in Gaza because you are a Nazi. If you're queer too, you probably closeted yourself because they would have hanged your dainty, gutless ass at a moment's notice. And of course, you are NOT a Christian for if you were, you wouldn't be able to practice your faith without being tortured – or worse.

    But yet, you refuse to leave the USA even though you ILLEGALLY OCCUPY Indian land. Indians whom YOUR relatives, not mine, murdered and stole that land from…much more so than any bogus bull you can claim about Jews occupying their own land that was legally theirs since almost the beginning of time.

    The NAZI label sticks firmly, Quinn. And by the way, why are you using a computer? The main components are made in Israel, you dumbass gutless wonder.

    Begone, bilge rat. Your Uncle Schicklgruber awaits …go find a drone strike and be buried under it, jerk.

    LOL.

  79. Alan Rockman says:

    Daniel Quinn Take your own advice, Fascist pig, and sod off. If anyone needs to lose weight and get some brain matter in place, it is you, Jew-hater.

    Frankly, you're a coward. You won't leave the states because you truly know what'll be in store for you if you moved to the toilet bowl known as Gaza. You won't do the right thing by leaving land your family ILLEGALLY OCCUPIED, driving away truly innocent (unlike your Palestinian scum) people, and you're just a little stupid boy who probably gets his jollies off of reading "Mein Kampf".

    Honestly, you can shove mondoweiss up your ass. To me, it is about as relevant – and intelligent – as the Koran – which is not at all.
    But hey, you've wasted enough of my time, idiot. Go throw your MADE IN ISRAEL PC out the window – and go join Hitler. He wants – and loves – you, Quinn.

  80. Alan Rockman says:

    All that Quinn the Nazi can do is spew. Hate of Jews, and his own cowardice in oh-so-many-ways. Heck, he doesn't even have the cojones to throw a Kashrut computer out the window. Or to feel guilt over what he and his kind did to Native Americans.

    But I've truly had enough of his Hitlerian rubbish. He's flushed down the toilet along with his fellow Nazis.
