Brooklyn Co-Op votes down Israel boycott referendum

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.
