"I remain a supporter of economic cooperation and social interaction between a democratic Israel and Palestine," the actress said. "SodaStream is a company that is not only committed to the environment but to building a bridge to peace between Israel and Palestine, supporting neighbors working alongside each other, receiving equal pay, equal benefits and equal rights. That is what is happening in their Ma’ale Adumim factory every working day."Israelis and Palestinians working side by side for equal wages? Who could have a problem with that? Well, the Huffington Post readership, obviously, who responded to the statement not with facts but knee jerk talking points.
Obviously all these human rights advocates would prefer Sodastream be out of business and the Palestinian workers employed there to be out on the streets throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers. Even Israel hating HP blogger Robert Naiman got in on the Johansson bashing:
What a bunch of peace loving Palestinian supporters.
