Chick peas are political: Princeton University students are voting on a referendum that, if passed, will "ask Dining Services to supply an alternative brand of hummus in addition to Sabra." What's the problem with the Queens-based hummus maker? Well, there's the tricky situation of one of its owners and the owner's support of the Israeli army.

Sabra is 50% owned by PepsiCo and 50% owned by the Strauss Group, Israel's second largest food and beverages company. According to the Daily Princetonian, "The Strauss Group has made public statements in support of the Israeli Defense Forces and also sends care packages to soldiers. The Golani Brigade, members of which have been accused of human rights abuses, has been financially and publicly supported by The Strauss Group." A pro-Palestine group at the Ivy League school has been trying to rally support for the school to boycott the brand.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency says that the anti-Sabra movement is "reportedly is the brainchild of Philly BDS, which calls for boycott, divestment and sanctions against companies that support the Israel Defense Forces."
