Can Ice Cream Be Anti-Israel?
Unfortunately, yes. Even ice cream can be anti-Israel. Fortunately, there's something you can do about it.
Earlier this week, Ben & Jerry's announced that it will soon forbid its ice cream to be sold in Israel across the green line. They claim they are concerned about "human rights" and are doing this consistent with their "values."
Here's the reality. Ben & Jerry's happily sells their ice cream in China, despite that country's genocide of the Uighurs and numerous other appalling human rights violations. They also sell in Russia, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and a host of other countries with pathetic human rights records.
Only when it comes to the Jewish State does Ben & Jerry's suddenly show such concern about being a moral beacon.
Here's another reality. Ben & Jerry's is owned by Unilever, one of the largest corporations in Europe. Unilever is continuing to sell hundreds of its other products all over Israel, inside and outside the green line. If this is supposed to be about "values" and "human rights," then why just Ben & Jerry's and not Unilever's other products? Because that brand has a certain "woke" image they want to maintain, which their other products don't. And nothing says woke louder than being anti-Israel. In other words, this is simply a marketing ploy - at Israel's expense.
It's time to boycott Ben & Jerry's. Let them know why you are no longer buying their product.
You don't need all those calories anyway. And if you really have a craving for high quality ice cream, Hagen Daas is far better.
