Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson is getting harassed and slandered by the Israel-hating BDS (Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions) Left because she supports Israeli company, SodaStream.
JPress Says Johansson, “I remain a supporter of economic cooperation and social interaction between a democratic Israel and Palestine.” “SodaStream is a company that is not only committed to the environment but to building a bridge to peace between Israel and Palestine, supporting neighbors working alongside each other, receiving equal pay, equal benefits and equal rights.
Scarlett Johansson stands tall against Israel boycotters One of the sexiest women in America has the PC crowd in a swivet. Scarlett Johansson, you see, is shooting a Super Bowl ad for SodaStream. Johansson, by agreeing to be SodaStream’s “first global brand ambassador,” became a BDS boogie woman.
But instead of answering BDS jeers, she simply said she loves the brand and has used it for years, and that SodaStream’s “commitment to a healthier body and a healthier planet is a perfect fit for me.”
She could also add that SodaStream’s plant in Maale Edumim, one of three in Israel, employs 1,100 workers — mostly West Bank Palestinians, under the same conditions and salaries as Jewish workers. A fourth plant, in southern Israel, will hire mostly Bedouin Arabs, now suffering from high unemployment.
In other words, SodaStream boasts many corporate values admired by the politically correct crowd. But not for Hollywood’s anti-Israelis. In Hollywood, where misguided radical chic hasn’t cost anyone a juicy movie part in half a century, ignoring the anti-Israel catcalls is no easy thing these days. Sticking by SodaStream in such an environment is admirable.
The hard Hollywood left (most of whom are Jewish JINOS) is happy to boycott anything having to do with the Jewish state — including Israeli theater companies that systematically bash their government’s policies. Others are torn, saying they support Israel in principle, but oppose “occupation.” So they’ll boycott anything labeled “settlements.”

Scarlett Johansson, it turns out, is much more than a pretty face. Her casual dismissal of the BDS crowd is downright sexy.
