Boycott Movement in Vancouver (BC) Against SodaStream (Israeli company)

Radical Left-wing activists demonstrated in Vancouver, Canada on Sunday in a call to boycott Israeli company SodaStream for operating in “occupied territories” and “mistreating” Palestinian workers.

SodaStream manufactures and distributes machines for home use to make carbonated drinks, eliminating the need to buy environmentally harmful plastic bottles.

It has been discriminated against by the boycott movement for holding its headquarters in the eastern Jerusalem suburb city of Ma’ale Adumim, located over the 1949 Armistice lines. …

Let’s follow their logic to its conclusion. SodaStream “exploits Palestinian workers” by employing them. So, we boycott SodaStream, reducing their profits, which means they may have to cut costs to remain in business. What is the very first cost that any business looks to cut when they are in a tight spots? Payroll perhaps?

Yeah, I’m sure the Palestinians will be really thankful if they get pink slips thanks to the benevolent meddling of these liberal idiots.

The Israelis always point out that the whole “boycott/divest/sanction” ploy hurts the “Palestinians” more than anybody.

Hamas sure won’t let the “Palestinians” work and live normal lives; they want more jihad-fodder to create their Islamic Caliphate on a foundation of blood and more blood. As their Koran says, life on planet Earth “is a play and a pastime” and they should be “lov(ing) death” and wanting to die as martyrs to go to Jannah “under the trees beneath which the rivers flow” et cetera.

When you hate the Jews, you do what ever it takes to make their life more miserable, even if it cost the Palestinians their jobs.

“Radical Left-wing activists demonstrated in Vancouver, Canada”

My old stupid stomping grounds. I’ve stated time and time again Vancouver makes San Fran look like a GOP recruiting office. That’s why I immigrated to America to get away from these assholes.

Nazis alive and well all the way over in Vancouver BC. If mankind expands to Mars and beyond, will there be any way to assure that our species doesn’t infect the universe with this stinking scum?

Yes, clearly and concisely state in governing documents that only PRODUCERS have a say and that the opening of the voting base to the non productive or underage is not open for public discussion.

Another option would be to have rules that state that any regulation or legislation passed does not go into effect until all of the individual or legal entities which could stand to benefit from it have either died or gone out of business, or they are barred from taking advantage of it specifically if needed immediately.

During the Iraq war, more canadians burned American flags in Vancouver than any North american city. Every effing weekend for 3 years, they would head to the US embassy and try to storm it. Not even liberals did that in the US.

In case we were confused, this settles the whole Jewish Evil vs. Pollution Evil debate.

Damn innovative Israelis!

Always making great products for global use. Too bad they're employing Palestinians to manufacture these products. Lay off all the Palestinians so they can go back to their villages, smoke, play backgammon and generally be unproductive.

They'll find employment within the Palestinian Authority making bombs or digging terror tunnels - much more productive for their society and the region.

No wonder “DaVinci’s Inquest” was set in Vancouver. Got lots of liberal trappings.

Bought one. Gave it away. The carbonation gave me awful stomach cramps.

Also, the ragheads who use cellphones to plot their next acts of terrorism(for that matter the "Gibmedats" with their 0bamaphones as well) owe a debt of gratitude to the Israelis. During WWII, Motorola laid the groundwork for cell phone technology as we know it. After the war, the newly formed Israeli army, along with the Scandanavians(Ericsson), the Brits and French(Phillips) also made improvements on the technology before the Japanese got involved.
