JTA - The student government at University of California voted to approve a resolution calling for the removal of Sabra brand hummus from campus dining services.
The resolution passed last week by a vote of 13 to 0 with one abstention. The removal was requested because the Sabra companys joint owner is the Israel-based Strauss Group, which allegedly supports the Israeli military.
The resolution was supported by the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine.
The resolution is not enforceable, and the UC Riverside administration says it has no plans to remove the hummus.
Sabra Dipping Company is owned by two independent global food companies- PepsiCo, based in the U.S. and Strauss Group, which is headquartered in Israel, Sabra Spokeswoman Ilya Welfeld said in a statement issued to local NBC affiliate NBC4.
Each company is a separate entity and independent company, she said, adding that Sabra has no political positions or affiliations.

The Palestinian problem can only be eliminated, not solved.
Here’s the Buy2Defy ping and a fail fix. If you wish to be removed from the ping list, please notify.
I buy it all the time. Now, I’ll just buy more.
You can’t fix stupid. When these imbeciles are not being propped up by their parents, their pathetic excuse of an education at these vile libtard universities will not allow them to hold a decent job and hopefully, they will be removed from the gene pool. Their whining and protesting, plus their support of the most vicious vile people I can think of (Muzzlimes) cannot end well for them. Or for us. I pray that Muzzlimes do not gain a foothold via the imbeciles offering themselves as useful idiot tools to the master manipulators.
I like Sabra hummus and am a strong proponent of Israel. Those UC scum voting against ‘hummus’ are merely ignorant fools whose parents need to cut off their tuition and allowance monies.
Sabra is good. And it makes Trader Joe’s hummus as well which sells like hotcakes!
Never thought I’d have ever come to conclusion we are going to have to nuke parts of US to save it. There is no getting through to these dupes.
I’ll mention that, too, on @buy2defy
I thank the UC Riverside Student Government for educating me.
I had no idea that Sabra was 1/2 owned by an Israeli investor. When I buy hummus from now on, I will look for the Sabra label.
It was 13 to 0 with one abstention. Those that are not ignorant are cowardly, but intimidation is being practiced.
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Not exactly Israeli hummus, Brooklyn hummus. Though with success they've moved their headquarters to White Plains. And, horrors, and Strauss Group, Israeli company owns a large (50%) interest, as does the evil PepsiCo.
I guess the message is death to Sabra, death to Israel, death to America.
I might excuse ignorance, it can be corrected. Or not. Cowardly, what an awful way to go through life.
I’m afraid that I will have to support Israel in some other fashion, since I have never developed a taste for hummus.
But it is sad to see the student body embracing anti-Semitism so strongly.
13-0, gutless bunch of worthless pieces of krap. Group think at its worst. Riverside is hardly a far left bastion. You would never know it.
Not ready for prime time.
I didn't know that.
Boycott Trader Joes!!
Worse yet, Sabra makes salsa, guacamole, and greek yogurt dip
In the US.
Boycott them all
Just in case, boycott salsa, greek yogurt dip and especially guacamole. Since I posted a thread a couple days ago about the looming unaffordability of guac due to Trump policies
People might have to switch to hummus.
Except it's all so much nonsense
I wonder what good stock investments are in Israel? I don’t invest in anything medical, though.
this is what we get when we let Islamics invade our country and colleges
or else this is just a bunch of extremely stupid “useful idiot” children.. but Certainly their parents MUST have taught them better than this idiocy!
note that Governor Brown has done almost nothing effective at all to get the MuslimBrotherhood terrorist gangster front groups OFF of California campuses (where the enemy LOVES to congregate because they see our colleges as “safe zones” and great “staging areas” for their propaganda and intimidation campaign against America, Christians, and Jews). And so very sorry to see that Governor Brown has let it infest UCR. The IslamoNazis have already infested UC, UCLA, UCIrvine, SF State Univ, and a couple more California public campuses.
The cancer is spreading.....spreading....spreading....
