Organizers Cancel Event From Which They Had Previously Excluded Israeli Vendor

Earlier today, I posted about the Israeli food truck from Moshava Philly being excluded from “The Taste of Home” event, organized by Eat Up The Borders and Sunflower Philly¬† (actually, I took Eat Up The Borders to task for their decision, since they posted about it, and did not mention Sunflower Philly at all).

Following the backlash they received, Eat Up The Borders removed both their Facebook page and Instagram account.

Now Sunflower Philly has announced the cancellation of the event entirely.

While a better decision would have been to have held the event and not exclude anyone, this is at least better than holding it while excluding Moshava Philly. Nevertheless, writing “Due to the ongoing situation with one of our event partners” almost sounds like they are blaming them.

It also sends the message that bullying and intimidation will work.
