‘Shameful’: Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister To Demand U.S. Enforce Anti-Boycott Jews Laws Against Ben & Jerry’s

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Americans who love Israel must fight this shameful decision. There are over 30 states who have passed anti-BDS legislation. Anti-BDS legislation can be used to fight companies who support the BDS Movement. Here is the list of states. If you live in any of these states then contact your governor. We must not allow this outrageous decision to stand.

‘Shameful’: Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister To Demand U.S. Enforce Anti-BDS Laws Against Ben & Jerry’s

By Daily Wire, July 20, 2021

Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Yair Lapid demanded U.S. action against Ben & Jerry’s on Monday after the ice cream company announced they would no longer sell their products in Judea and Samaria, which they described as “Occupied Palestinian Territory.”

“Ben & Jerry’s decision represents shameful surrender to antisemitism, to BDS and to all that is wrong with the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish discourse. We will not be silent,” Lapid tweeted.

“Over 30 states in the United States have passed anti-BDS legislation in recent years. I plan on asking each of them to enforce these laws against Ben & Jerry’s. They will not treat the State of Israel like this without a response,” Lapid added.

To date, 35 states have passed legislation against the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.

We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners. 

We have a longstanding partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region. We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.

Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement. We will share an update on this as soon as we’re ready.

Ben & Jerry’s have repeatedly made headlines over the years for issuing provocative political statements. In April, after Daunte Wright was shot in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, they tweeted that America’s police system “can’t be reformed” and “must be dismantled.”

“The murder of #DaunteWright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the international criminalization of Black and Brown communities,” Ben & Jerry’s wrote. “This system can’t be reformed. It must be dismantled and a real system of public safety rebuilt from the ground up. #DefundThePolice.”
