Members of the Park Slope Food Co-Op voted down a proposed referendum to ban Israeli foods by a landslide, with 1005 voting against and 653 voting for it.

The local food fight drew international attention on Tuesday and senior New York politicians lined up to weigh in on the debate.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn were among those who came out strongly against the boycott.
