#BDS: Strauss reposts IDF-support commitment on website

ACTIVISTS DANCE to support Strauss boycott.

Humous producer rewords pledge to Golani troops following boycott threats from Philadelphia BDS movement.

The Strauss Group, one of the country’s foremost food and beverage companies, has returned its website banner in support of the IDF after it was removed following pressure and boycott threats in the US.

Three weeks ago the Post reported that the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement in Philadelphia had initiated a campaign against Sabra and Tribe humous, produced by Strauss under its American logo, the Sabra Dipping Company, purportedly in protest of the company’s public support for the IDF.

BDS activists held demonstrations in supermarkets and called on them to stop selling Strauss’s products.
