The Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giant announced Monday that it will no longer distribute its products in the “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” though the flavors will remain available in 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,” the company said in a statement.
Now we Israelis know which ice cream NOT to buy 🇮🇱💪 https://t.co/j7VNpIWX0f

I guess no more @benandjerrys for me! Oh well. Imagine a world where ice cream companies stuck to… making ice cream.

We call on @KOFKKosher to immediately pull their kosher certification.
This is antisemitic. https://t.co/KLgKZIK7l6

I’m curious, is there any country other than Israel that people call to be violently dismantled because of its policies?
Misogynistic Saudi Arabia🇸🇦?
Even apartheid S. Africa🇿🇦?

DID YOU KNOW: Reuben & Rose Mattus, Polish #Jews, founded the renowned ice cream company @HaagenDazs_US. They chose a Danish(ish) name to pay tribute to Denmark’s efforts to save #Jews during the #Holocaust & were passionate about the fate of the Jewish people 🙏🇮🇱 @benshapiro pic.twitter.com/gZx78wBKj4
