Pro-Palestinian student activists at Swarthmore want the college to stop selling Sabra-branded hummus because they accuse the parent company of Sabra of supporting an Israeli military brigade with care packages.

The parent company of Sabra is the Strauss Group, which the activists allege the Strauss Group financially invests and supports an Israeli military brigade stationed in the Golan Heights. The brigade, per SJP’s claims, brutally repress and kill Palestinians.
