A group of 90 Knesset members pens a letter to the CEO of Unilever, the parent company of Ben & Jerry’s, calling on it to reverse the decision to stop selling ice cream in Israeli settlements.

“The decision to boycott towns and cities in Israel… is an immoral and regrettable decision that harms all residents of Judea and Samaria as well as harms hundreds of Israeli workers, Jews and Arabs alike,” the lawmakers write, using the biblical names for the West Bank.
