BDS of Israel 'Gathering Weight.'
I am happy that the Soda Stream PR person could find so many positive stories. Warms the heart. Where is the factory located? How was the land obtained? What is the opportunity cost to the Palestinians of stolen land and flattened orchards?
Are Israeli oranges sustainable? The "miracle" of Israeli agriculture seems to have a high environmental cost. I am not an expert on irrigation but I suspect oranges can and are grown more sustainably elsewhere.
