Hey BDS-loving Jew-haters: Say ‘Cheese’ 🙂

Via Middle East Forum.

Berkeley Peace and Justice Commissioner Hatem Bazian has issued a call-out on his Facebook page to boycott Trader Joe’s for daring to stock Israeli feta cheese.

Hatem writes:

“Trader Joe’s is having Israeli Feta on its shelves! One more reason to stop shopping at the store. “….

Hatem may not remember the 2009 BDS action against Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s refused to be bullied and promoted the products with floor to ceiling displays. Consumers followed with a “buycott’ that ultimately lead to Israeli products sold out from stores coast to coast. In their zeal to be supportive, people bought cases of Israeli couscous. They began asking “what is this small grain and what do I do with it?” Shortly after, recipes began appearing in the blogsphere….

Hatem’s little Facebook post may have sparked another “run” on Trader Joe’s. As of now, there are over 800 comments, on his post, with the vast majority supportive of Israel and Israeli feta….

And as of today, there is no Israeli feta left in stock in the area. A new shipment is expected next week. Thanks Hatem, for another BDS fail feta accompli.
