Last February we posted an article about Soda Stream, a company that provides over 1,300 jobs in the Palestinian territory of Israel--a company where Jews and Palestinians work side-by-side in peace.

Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has stepped down from her role as an Oxfam Global Ambassador because her support for an Israeli business is not okay with the organization that provides aid to impoverished nations all over the world.

They say it is causing impoverishment to Palestinians. How can that be when Soda Stream is equally employing Palestinians who would otherwise be starving?
