(JAN 30,2013) - Today, representatives from Jewish, Christian and Muslim organizations, are calling for a boycott (http://www.sodastreamboycott.co/) of SodaStream carbonated beverage makers, which are produced in an illegal Israeli settlement in the occupied Palestinian West Bank.

The Interfaith Boycott Coalition is kicking off its boycott campaign to coincide with SodaStream's Super Bowl commercial, which will be featured during the national NFL event on Feb. 3.

International controversy surrounding SodaStream already has gained media attention, including on Up w/Chris Hayes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jjMzHHCLzE&feature=youtu.be) of MSNBC.

Though SodaStream claims the products are made in Israel, they are actually made in the industrial sector of Ma'ale Adurnin, one of Israel's largest jewish-only settlements, which is built on Palestinian land. The settlement's size, location and its network of segregated roads, upon which only Israeli citizens may travel, deny Palestinians freedom of movement within their own territory.

The United States opposes the construction of settlements, which are against international law and are an obstacle to peace. By operating in a settlement, SodaStream directly sustains Israel's illegal and discriminatory settlement policy. "We are asking consumers not to buy SodaStream products because doing so enriches those who violate international law, thereby damaging prospects for peace," said the Rev. Don Wagner, coalition spokesperson. "Instead, we're also urging people to ask store owners to remove Soda Stream from their shelves. By opposing products made in settlements, we are working for justice and equal rights for everyone in the Middle East."

In 2012, the policy-making bodies of the Global United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church USA each voted to boycott products made in Israeli settlements in occupied Palestine. The Interfaith Boycott Coalition, formed later that year, includes representatives of Jewish, Muslim, and additional Christian faith-based organizations sharing the common goal of ending Israel's long- standing military occupation and realizing a just peace in Palestine and Israel.

The Interfaith Boycott Coalition operates as a network of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and includes the organizations Israel Palestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Jewish Voice for Peace, American Muslims for Palestine, American Friends Service Committee, Episcopal Peace Fellowship's Palestine Israel Network, Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East, Friends of Sabeel North America, United Church of Christ Palestine Israel Network, Church of the Brethren, United Methodist Kairos Response and members of the Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Mennonite and Quaker traditions. It is a project of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, a coalition of nearly 400 social justice organizations.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
