Brooklyn Food Co-op Rejects Israel Boycott

A well-known cooperative grocery store in Brooklyn voted to reject a boycott of Israeli goods. At a special meeting Tuesday night, members of the Park Slope Food Coop rejected by a vote of 1,005 to 653 a proposal to hold a mail ballot referendum for all members on whether to stop selling Israeli goods. The meeting was held at an area high school to accommodate the expected crowd – which ended up exceeding in size any previous co-op meeting, The New York Times reported.
