UK Co-op & Robert Cohen Attempt Damage Control Following My Expose of Them


Following my expose of the Co-operative Group in the UK, who have advocated a boycott of Israel (and not “just” the settlements as they claim), as well as Robert Cohen, their head of executive external communications, who has not only advocated a boycott of Israel and mocked antisemitism, but been a member of an antisemitic Facebook group, the Co-op has denied being pro-BDS and also promised to look into my accusation of Cohen’s BDS support and antisemitic FB group membership.

Despite repeated inquiries regarding where this stands, they have not responded to me.

Meanwhile, Cohen has responded – by covering his tuchus. He changed his Twitter profile description to suggest his tweets are unrelated to the views of Co-op.

Too little, too late. This is completely unacceptable.
