BDS & Ben &Jerry’s–Loves Terrorists/Hates Israel

Does it really matter that an ice cream brand refuses to sell its product in a portion of Israel?  Yet at the same time has no problem selling it in the slave State of China.  China has concentration camps for Muslims—Israel allows Palestinians to be members of the Knesset (its Congress).  Ben and Jerry sis now part of an international firm, Unilever—makers of soaps and household products.  Maybe we should stop buying those products since it prefers terrorists and slave Sates to free people..

“Look no further than Ben & Jerry’s partnership with Unilever, which acquired the ice cream company in 2000. There is no comparison between Israeli policy in the West Bank and the practices of the world’s greatest human rights abusers. Unilever happily does business everywhere from occupied Northern Cyprus to occupied Tibet and Xinjiang, home to Uyghur concentration camps. We won’t hold our breath for the ice cream boycott of China or Russia. But hey, there are no Jews in Xinjiang.”

No ice cream is worth my self respect and dignity.  Is it yours?

BDS & Jerry’s

Washington Free Beacon, 7/21/21

The woke ice cream company veers into anti-Semitism

The left-wing ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s announced on Monday that it will stop selling its ice cream in the West Bank and East Jerusalem—or, as the company termed them, Occupied Palestinian Territory. In a move that perfectly captures how left-wing activism is increasingly bleeding into naked anti-Semitism, Ben & Jerry’s said that selling ice cream in the West Bank is “inconsistent with our values.”

Yikes.

We’re not clear how exactly removing Ben & Jerry’s ice cream from grocery stores in the West Bank will benefit the Palestinians. The move appears to be primarily an act of guerrilla theater and a demonstration of base prejudice.

The most common expression of anti-Semitism on the left is the application of double standards to Jews and the Jewish state.

This sort of casual anti-Semitism is not a one-off for Ben & Jerry’s or its left-wing allies. The company defended its partnership with the anti-Trump and anti-Semitic Women’s March as three of its leaders, including the execrable Linda Sarsour, were pushed out thanks to their anti-Semitic remarks.

First, the social justice warriors at Ben & Jerry’s assured us the Women’s March had been “unequivocal” in its denunciations of anti-Semitism—even as it praised Sarsour for her “undeniably important” work. Then the company issued a mealy-mouthed statement that said little about the Women’s March but declared, “Ben & Jerry’s is neither anti-Semitic nor do we support anti-Semitism in any form.”

Monday’s move gave the lie to that blather, and we urge friends of Israel and the Jewish people to vote with their spoons. Morton Williams co-president Avi Kaner is leading the way: He said late Monday that his board would meet to discuss ridding its supermarkets of Ben & Jerry’s.

As the new Israeli prime minister, Naftali Bennett, told Israeli reporters, “There are many ice cream brands, but only one Jewish state.”

    The cowards won’t take your call but you can leave a letter to tell them they are racists and that you won’t be buying their product anymore since they have aligned with BDS, the biggest anti-Semitic group around. I did and just like the terrorist cell that Ben and progressive Jerry is they won’t let you reach out to let them know you are pissed and that they suck!
