After Oxfam forced Actress Scarlett Johansson to step down as their ambassador over her advertisement with Israeli company SodaStream, a company Oxfam boycotts, Canadian Employment Minister Jason Kenney said their move spurred him to buy from SodaStream.
Appearing on Canadian Sun News last week, Kenney quipped “I’ve given money to Oxfam in the past because I thought they were there to help poor people, not to marginalize Israelis and make Palestinians unemployed.” He added that “all the nutters at Oxfam” also marginalize “Palestinian people” who get paid 4 times more at SodaStream.
Kenney bashed the “anti-Israel obsession” with which leftist groups pursue Israel, even while they ignore countries like Iran that executes political dissidents and homosexuals.
Remarking on Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s recent visit to Israel, Kenny remarked “we felt at home in Israel” over the shared values of freedom and democracy between Israel and Canada.
Fox banned the following SodaStream commercial and would not air it during the Super Bowl:
