Trader Joe’s boycott story gets response

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/trader_joes_boycott_story_gets_response_20090622/

The Journal’s June 20 story on the largely fizzled campaign to “deshelve” imported Israeli products at Trader Joe’s stores was widely picked up, including on the LA Times web site and in the blogosphere.
Gary Fouse’s Radarsite added a comment from an anonymous Trader Joe’s employee, as follows:

…
