While the couscous-vandal-wannabees are howling “you’ve not seen the last of us!,” it turns out that Trader Joe’s has not seen the last of Israeli supporters either. Apparently Hillel’s Angels, a group of Jewish Harley riders are planning to take a motorcycle caravan through New Jersey this weekend to continue our support for Trader Joe’s and Israeli products. Now that’s political activism written FUN!
And speaking of fun, I don’t know how many of you saw what happened the last time the “we don’t really like Israel all that much” crowd attempted a food-related boycott (in this case, a picketing of sellers of kosher wins in Toronto). Video can be found here (it’s well worth watching all three parts):
Note the sheepish disbursal of the boycotters when confronted with hundreds of people with joy in their hearts, and wine in their hands.
Hey BDS crew! There’s a liquor store right down the street from me that not only sells Israeli and other kosher wines, but is Jewish owned! So let me know if you plan to capitalize on your “triumph” in Toronto so I can clear out some space in my wine cellar!
