Sabra is an Israeli-based company that sells hummus, dips, salsa, guacamole, and salad. It is owned partially by the Strauss Group, which supports the Israeli Defense Forces and profits off of the military occupation of Palestine. The Strauss Group has publicly stated that it supports the Golani Brigade, a unit of the IDF, by providing food and care packages during their training. The Golani Brigade is known for participating in human rights violations against the Palestinian people, including but not limited to:
the uprooting and massacring of Palestinians in 1948 during what is known as al-Nakba, or the Catastrophe, in which over 750,000 Palestinians were displaced, 531 villages were demolished, and 20 large massacres took place;
the massacres of the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps during the 1982 Lebanon War;
the targeting of civilians, emergency vehicles, and industrial infrastructure as well as the use of illegal weaponry during the 2006 Lebanon War;
the 2002 invasion and massacre at the Jenin Refugee Camp, in which 52 Palestinians were killed, 140 buildings were destroyed, and 4,000 refugees were made homeless;
the 2008-09 invasion of Gaza known as Operation Cast Lead, in which 1,440 Palestinians were massacred;
the harassment and deprivation of rights of Palestinian civilians.
Furthermore, Sabra is based in an unlawful settlement on Palestinian land. The factory is in the West Bank on land illegally appropriated by the Israeli government - land which was previously occupied and owned by Palestinian people and land that is considered Palestine under international law.
We call on UC San Diego to end its complicity in the human rights violations of the Israeli Defense Force as funded and supported by the Sabra company.
