Harvard: Israeli-Made SodaStream Machines Are a 'Microaggression'
Harvard University made the decision to pull the labels off its Israeli-made SodaStream water systems to avoid offending Palestinian students.
Rachel Sandalow-Ash of the Harvard Progressive Jewish Alliance said, "These machines can be seen as a microaggression to Palestinian students and their families and like the University doesn't care about Palestinian human rights."
"What's sad is that people from Harvard run America, actually," Tucker Carlson said on "Fox and Friends Weekend." "And they're so unimpressive."
The root of the problem, like so many other campus food fights, is Israel. Until last spring, Harvard Undergraduate Dining Services (HUDS) purchased water machines from a firm owned by SodaStream, an Israel-based firm that operates a plant in the West Bank.
According to The Harvard Crimson, those purchases have stopped after activists on campus complained that the machines were offensive to students of Palestinian origin. Nor did HUDS stop there, as they even stripped SodaStream labels from machines they already owned in order to minimize any potential psychic harm to students who oppose the company.
