Israel-Haters: Hummus, Genocidal. Hamas, Not So Much

Those Israel-hating, chickpea-brains of the BDS movement are targeting hummus as “genocidal.”

Pro-Palestinian campaigners are labelling pots of Israeli hummus stocked in British supermarkets as “profiting from genocide”.

The anti-Israel BDS movement – which stands for boycott, divestment and sanctions – calls for activists not to buy Israeli products in order to put economic pressure on companies operating in the country.

It claims on its website that the hummus and dips brand Sabra previously supported the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) with donations.

The campaign’s website states: “Sabra hummus is a joint venture between PepsiCo and the Strauss Group, an Israeli food company that provides financial support to the Israeli army.”

However, The Telegraph understands that BDS’s website refers to a Sabra brand sold in the US.

The Telegraph can reveal activists have targeted pots of the British-sold hummus in several supermarkets across Britain.

On Wednesday, a flyer was stuck to a pot of Sabra Houmous in a Sainsbury’s store in Limehouse, east London, claiming the product “profits from genocide”.

The stickers, designed to look like cigarette health warnings, also offer “help to quit” advice, with a QR code linking to a campaign page associated with the BDS movement.

Activists have shared sticker templates online, including for “apartheid hummus”, which has a price label of £19.48, which is the year the state of Israel was proclaimed.

Pictures posted to social media appeared to show these had been stuck to some supermarket shelves in some cases.

Templates for bright yellow labels instructing shoppers to boycott Israeli goods were also shared online.

Meanwhile, their actions are only emboldening the truly genocidal Hamas, who have shown that they know what side their bread is buttered hummus-ed on, and will thank those who are helping put pressure on Israel while we wage our righteous war against them.
