Anti-Israeli Hummus Boycott Humorous

By Rhonda J Spivak, B.A., L.L.B.

Just saw this video of Philadelphia area anti-Israel protesters putting on an amateur song-and-dance act in a local supermarket demanding the destocking of Israeli-made hummus. Who says you have to be good-looking to make it in show business?

 

Just saw this video of Philadelphia area anti-Israel protesters putting on an amateur song-and-dance act in a local supermarket demanding the destocking of Israeli-made hummus. Who says you have to be good-looking to make it in show business? But the point cannot be stressed too often: If you’re going to bring down the Israeli war machine, you can’t be satisfied with pitiful little gestures. Israel is the world’s second largest producer of patents, and hummus is (sorry) a vanishingly trivial portion of the Israeli economy. I recommend this video that offers a much more adult explanation of what a serious boycott movement would be doing, beginning with throwing away all laptop computers and junking tsunami-warning devices.
