Scarlett Johansson Defends SodaStream Against BDShole Claims

Yesterday, I posted the SodaStream video as a response to all the BS to which Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has been subjected for promoting them as brand ambassador.

In the meantime, she has released her own statement.

That that BDSholes!

While I never intended on being the face of any social or political movement, distinction, separation or stance as part of my affiliation with SodaStream, given the amount of noise surrounding that decision, I’d like to clear the air.

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.

That is what is happening in their Ma’ale Adumim factory every working day. As part of my efforts as an Ambassador for Oxfam, I have witnessed first-hand that progress is made when communities join together and work alongside one another and feel proud of the outcome of that work in the quality of their product and work environment, in the pay they bring home to their families and in the benefits they equally receive.

I believe in conscious consumerism and transparency and I trust that the consumer will make their own educated choice that is right for them. I stand behind the SodaStream product and am proud of the work that I have accomplished at Oxfam as an Ambassador for over 8 years. Even though it is a side effect of representing SodaStream, I am happy that light is being shed on this issue in hopes that a greater number of voices will contribute to the conversation of a peaceful two state solution in the near future.

Good for her! Wherever you stand on the two-state issue, there is no denying that statement is a slap in the face of the BDSholes, including Ali Abumination and his Electronic Intifada.

    Only there is no such thing as Palestine. Using the name “Palestine” instead of “Land of Israel” is of the same order as use of the names “Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia” for Czechoslovakia, “General Government” for Poland or “Northern Territories” for Kuril Islands.
