National Post Columnist Lauds Scarlett Johansson

National Post of Canada Columnist Robert Fulford seems to have grasped something that the organizers of the Celebrate Israel Parade, New York City's Jewish Community Relations Council and United Jewish Federation, apparently have not yet comprehended; the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel) is anti-Semitic. Fulford wonders why it is that so many people don't recognize the obvious, or don't want to.

He observes,

In devising their purposes the BDS campaigners have never shown even the beginning of a sense of proportion. It’s remarkable that the world needs a 29-year-old movie star to point this out.

Fulford notices that,

Like the great majority of Americans in the film industry, Johansson is a liberal Democrat. She took part in the last three presidential elections and raised money for Barack Obama.

But according to Fulford, Johansson apparently possesses a quality that most in her crowd lack.

Unlike many who fall into that category, she also thinks for herself.

The May issue of Vanity Fair carries a cover story about Johansson. The author of the piece, Lili Anolik, asked her how she explains why she has been viciously criticized for the SodaStream ads. Johansson answered, “There’s a lot of anti-Semitism out there.”

Organizers of the Celebrate Israel Parade??? Did they snub Scarlett Johansson? If so, bad on them. If not, why were the organizers of the Celebrate Israel Parade listed in this piece?
