Scarlett Johansson Stands Her Ground…With ClassPosted by Eileen Hart on January 27, 2014
I love when I see a Jewish actress in Hollywood stand up for Israel and not cave to the anti Israel “faux peace activist” crowd. Scarlett is the spokeswoman for an Israeli company, Soda Stream. Soda Stream is located in the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, which the anti- Israel crowd calls the West Bank, I call it what it is; Judea and Samaria. Soda Stream employs 900 Palestinian Arabs who are treated with dignity, respect with equal pay and equal treatment of their religion so they may pray five times a day.
The anti Israel crowd hates that a liberal Hollywood actress who is Jewish would dare to support Israel, its products and economy. How dare she think for herself!!! They hate that they cannot CONTROL her or lie that Israeli capitalism is apartheid to Arabs.
I don’t share Scarlett’s politics, but what she and I do share as Jews is a love for Eretz Yisrael. She responded to the antisemites with the utmost class and eloquence. The anti Israel crew wants her to stop supporting Soda Stream and join their revolution to destroy Israel.
My experience of seeing Israelis and Arabs working together was in Jerusalem 2012 in the David Citadel Hotel, and in the Mamilla Mall. The $150 million dollar project was built to resemble Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The Arabs and Israelis working in these shops were pleasant and easy-going with each other and customers.
The anti Israel crowd would love to see the Israeli economy crumble with their Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions movement, so that the Arabs who work for Israeli companies would lose their jobs and resort to terrorism. While the BDS Movement claims to make significant strides with their academic boycott of Israel, the Israeli economy and the countries it does trade with continue to grow and prosper.
