Just moments after actress Scarlett Johansson became the ambassador of Israeli company SodaStream, the celebrity was already being criticized for supporting a business that operates in the West Bank.
Five years ago the Israeli carbonated drink company made its way to the US market, and Americans have since fallen in love with the soda pop-making gadget. But the products success has been overshadowed by a political cloud, which is threatening the Israeli businesss achievements and its spokeswoman.
While shes openly gunning for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for 2016, Johansson would do well to realize that normalizing the Israeli occupation is a bad use of her celebrity, the Forward wrote.

We will soon learn if Johansson has any guts.
>> While shes openly gunning for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
If only that were really, literally true.
Sodastream is employing Palis and paying them good wages. Shows Israel isn’t an apartheid state. Any boycott would harm Palis.
“While shes openly gunning for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...”
Yeah, what on earth do they mean? I’m pretty sure this actress doesn’t want to kill Hillary, she can’t want her job, since Hillary doesn’t have one, do they mean she’s supporting Hillary?
Sodastream is employing Palis
Some of them actually have jobs?
Yes she was very pro 0 as well.
Poor girls guts are trying to pop right out of her clothes
Once heard of a six year old boy who came home from school one warm spring day.
“Mommy, my teacher leaned over to tell me something today, and her “lungs” fell out of her chest.”
If the ProgTards hate it so much, I have to get one...
She is kinduh bubbly...
I gotta get me somb uh that.
Well, not really.
She lives up the road with the Shiite Head Sean Penn and she’ll be rot by the time she’s back on the market...
That's long over with, although I'm sure she is shacked up with someone equally deplorable. Meantime Shiite Head Penn is bedding Chalize Theron. This wonderful /s couple was recently in the news as Ms. Theron convinced Mr. Penn to give up his gun collection to some Artist whom is going to disable them and then make some kind of oddball statue or something to that effect.
