There are 4 comments on Kosher Wine Is Not Just for Passover

  1. Despite Mr. Haruni’s assertion that his company’s biggest problem is “that people don’t know Israel makes quality wines,” his business venture faces a much bigger challenge: the active, vibrant European and American boycott of Israeli cultural goods in protest of Israel’s violent occupation of Palestine and genocidal history in Lebanon. Mr Haruni can make and market all the wine he wants, but those of us who believe in social justice will not buy it. BU Today would do well to provide more balanced and an ethical journalism in its coverage of such stories.

  2. “Upper Galilee”? That this term is used matter-of-factly–and that no mention is made of the extremely charged political context in which Mr Haruni has decided to establish his “Zionistic investment”–is inexcusable. Any journalistic integrity Katie Koch or the editors of BU Today may have had went out the window with this article.

  3. BU Today, will you PLEASE stop presenting incredibly politically-charged content as unbiased news?
    Wasn’t the “Noam Chomsky Rails on Israel, Again” article enough?
    I don’t understand – is the “news and information site of Boston University” pushing a biased agenda purposefully, or is ethical journalism just not a priority?

  4. Not sure if the same person wrote all three postings, but I respectfully and vigorously disagree with the comments.

    In my opinion, the overwhelming majority of people behind the BSM movement against Israel are hypocrites who do not understand the true state of affairs in Israel.

    People concerned with “social justice” might first look to what Hamas is doing on its own in Gaza, what the PA is doing in the West Bank, or what Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, Jordan and Syria (to name just a few) do.

    Those countries all have miles to go before they can even see Israel’s tail-lights. So when you earnest social justice types first clean up those countries, let us know.
