The ice cream storm in the territories: Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked visited the Ben & Jerry’s Israeli factory in Beer Tuvia today (Wednesday) and called on the Israeli public to continue purchasing the ice cream produced at the factory, despite the company’s decision to stop selling ice cream in Judea and Samaria.
Shaked said that “Israeli franchisee Avi Singer has been facing heavy pressure from boycott organizations in the United States for several years asking him to boycott Judea and Samaria – he refuses and because of his refusal, he may lose his franchise for another year and a half.”
Because of this, Shaked called on the buying public in Israel not to boycott the Israeli factory: “In the meantime, we must continue to buy Ben & Jerry’s in Israel. There is a professional factory here that employs 160 workers and many other farms in the area.”
“The management of Ben & Jerry’s Global has chosen to lick terrorism and antisemitic organizations instead of being loyal to an Israeli franchisee who for many years has been a role model and example to an Israeli manufacturer. .
Shaked added that “we must fight the American Ben & Jerrys. We are working with Jewish elements, evangelical communities and supporters of Israel in the United States where they will boycott Ben & Jerry’s ice cream until they change their despicable decision.”
She explained: “A company has collapsed under the pressure of the BDS movement on social media. We have launched a reverse campaign and will use legal tools to sue Ben & Jerrys in countries that have boycott laws against Israel. We have a year and a half to change this antisemitic decision.”
