Galloway Attacks Scarlett Johansson for Backing SodaStream

British MP George Galloway, who is known for his hatred towards Israel and his backing of the Hamas terrorist group, criticized actress Scarlett Johansson this week for her refusal to back down from an advertising campaign for SodaStream, an Israeli company with a factory in Ma’ale Adumim, a Jerusalem suburb located over the 1949 armistice lines.

SodaStream has been the target of boycott attempts by pro-Arab groups who take issue with the company being located in what they see as “occupied Palestinian territory”. Nevertheless, not only did Johansson not back down from the campaign, she stepped down as an ambassador for Oxfam due to the group’s support for a boycott of Israel.
