Pro-Palestine students petition college to ban Sabra hummus from campus
Swarthmore, PA – Students at a Pennsylvania college want to ban a specific brand of hummus from their campus for its ties to the state of Israel.
Swarthmore College’s Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter wants to permanently knock Sabra hummus off campus shelves, calling it “morally unacceptable” because of what they called the Jewish State’s human rights violations. They claim the company once sent care packages to the Israeli Defense Forces.
“By selling Sabra, Swarthmore is an accessory to the occupation of Palestine,” the petition reads. “We call upon President Smith to affirm the dignity of Palestinian life, recognize the illegal occupation of Palestinian land, and deshelve all current Sabra products and end their future sale at Swarthmore College.”
